You just need to follow these simple steps to claim the 33/1 offer at 888:

  1. Visit 888sport using a link on this page
  2. Register your details and enter PROMO CODE BOOST
  3. Make a deposit into your betting account of at least £10
  4. Place a qualifying bet of at least £5 on the team with the enhanced 33/1 odds to win (normal time only, extra time or penalties do not count)
  5. Cross your fingers and hope your team wins!

The maximum stake for which the 33/1 enhanced odds will apply will be £5, any stake above this will be paid at the standard odds.

If your bet wins, you’ll be paid out in cash to the value of the standard odds on that team winning, with the additional winnings (relating to the enhanced odds) being paid out in free bet tokens. That’s a lot better than many rival betting sites who pay out all winnings in free bets.

Can Faugheen win the 2019 Stayers’ Hurdle?

Faugheen might be getting on in years now but the 11 year old has a whole lot of top class experience to call upon. He has won 14 of his 20 races to date including the Champion Hurdle in 2015 and the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle the year before that.

Last year he was well beaten in the Champion Hurdle and finished only sixth, but a subsequent win at Punchestown and a fine second place finish at the same track showed there’s still life in this one.

At the time of writing Faugheen, trained by Willie Mullins and with Ruby Walsh in the saddle, is the 9/2 second favourite. Paisley Park is the 7/4 market leader, but the Emma Lavelle-trained seven year old failed badly on his only other trip to the Festival, finishing in 13th place in the Albert Bartlett last year.

The likes of Supasundae, Black Op and Kilbricken Storm could challenge. But in our eyes, betting is all about finding good value bets, and Faugheen at 33/1 is certainly exceptionally good value, so get involved.
