Sportsbet's Special for First Four Races on Cox Plate Day
October 22, 2015
Sportsbet refunded more than 2.7 million dollars to their customers on Caulfield Cup Day with their Money Back Special on the first four races on Saturday’s main meeting rescuing around 82,000 punters. And Guess what… It’s back again for Cox Plate Day as punters try to get in front early.
Cox Plate Day Special
Back a horse to win in the first 4 races at Moonee Valley this Saturday and if your runner finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th, you’ll get your money back. That’s up to $100 returned per event even if your horse doesn’t get a place but is next best. The offer applies to your first Fixed Odds Win bet or the Win portion of your first Fixed Odds Each Way bet! Think of it like this, you could keep up to $400 even if you don’t pick a winner before race 5.
First Four Races at Moonee Valley
The 1000 metre Inglis Banner kicks off Cox Plate Day. A big field of green horses will take to the track, with all involved either on debut or having their second career start.
The City Jeep Handicap over 955 metres is race 2. DIAMOND OASIS is looking for back to back wins in the event after finishing first last year. The $2.60 favourite faces stiff competition from TWATEEN ($3.80) who’s 1 from 1 at the track and distance.
We move out to a mile for the Fillies Classic in race 3. A single digit field but it could be tough to find a winner. 4 horses are currently at $5 or under. MY POPPETTE has saddle number 1 and will jump from barrier 1, can the $3.60 favourite finish number 1? The Robert Smerdon trained 3 year old will be ridden by championships leading jockey Mark Zahra.
The 1200 metre Telstra Phonewords Stakes is the final race in Sportsbet’s promotion. The Godolphin owned HOLLER is on the quick back up after his second in the Gothic Stakes last weekend. The favourite though is MAWAHIBB who’ll be ridden by Hugh Bowman.
