RaceBets offering new customers a free £50 bet and the chance to back Min at odds of 2/1
Wait a Min! RaceBets are one of our favourite bookmakers when it comes to horse racing and they’ve put their head above the parapet by offering 2/1 about the Willie Mullins favourite for the 2016 Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.
Min has been all the rage to win the 2016 Cheltenham Festival opener in the past few weeks, with the five-year-old having landed facile wins at Punchestown in December and January.
However, while Ladbrokes go as short as 5/4 about the Mullins charge landing a blow for the bookmakers on Day 1 of the meeting, there is the chance to potentially treble your money on Min with RaceBets.
This isn’t a price boost – it’s simply a bookmaker having the bravery to take on Min for the Supreme in the knowledge that there are plenty of other horses that can beat him. However, it’s great for those wanting to back the favourite.
The great news is that you can also claim a free £50 bet when you open a RaceBets account and so you could put that on Min and potentially make £100 if the jolly hacks up in the opener.

RaceBets will also be going Best Odds Guaranteed as soon as they add in their fixed-odds markets, so it’s a great bookmaker to choose for this reason alone.
On Min, Willie Mullins has said the following: “Min looks very decent but until after Cheltenham we won’t know how decent. This time last year I couldn’t believe what I was seeing with Douvan out there on the gallops and then he showed everyone at Cheltenham what he showed me at home. His temperament has to be a concern.
“He’s a lovely horse at home and he’s fine in the parade ring and everything, but once he gets down to the start he tends to take a good grip. I’d imagine there will be a lot more pace at Cheltenham than certainly his last race, and with that pace he should just blend in. I don’t think it will be a problem. Obviously I’ve been thinking about it, but we have taken steps (against that).
“They were telling me in France ‘He wore this, he wore that’, but his two runs in France he was beaten 20 lengths – so I thought ‘Well, I’m not going to go down that route’. If Min wants to go off and do what he does that’s fine by me.
“If he’s not good enough, that’s why we go to the races to find out. Why is he so short? When I came into the winners’ enclosure at Galway someone asked me about Min. He was out on grass. There just seems to have been an undercurrent of Min, Min, Min from that early stage, so his reputation is certainly bigger than what he’s done”.
