Friday’s card at Royal Ascot continues to offer us some top class renewals and there are two events in particular that the punters will focus on. The Commonwealth Cup and the Coronation Stakes are the two events in question and, it’s an opportunity for new customers to 888Sport to consider a choice of price boosts for either race.

Either / Or

888 are quoting 7/1 on Caravaggio to win the Commonwealth Cup or, as an alternative, you can pick up Winter at 6/1 for the Coronation Stakes. Both sound like excellent prices for the ante post favourites but how do they compare with the standard betting?

Currently, Caravaggio heads the market for the Commonwealth at a general price of around Even Money while SportingBet are quoting best odds of 5/4. Moving across to the Commonwealth Cup, the bookies expect Winter to have an easier passage with the Aidan O’Brien trained horse as an odds on option across the board with a top price available from bet365 and Paddy Power of 4/7.

Both seem like good punts but how do you take advantage of this deal and which horse should you pick?

Next Steps

The promotion is for new customers to 888Sport so if you haven’t any dealings here and haven’t held an account in the past then you are free to sign up via the link and register your details. With this process taking around two minutes or so, 888 will then take you to the cashier where you should credit at least £10.00 but please use a debit or credit card as certain eWallets are excluded from this offer.

Using a card should also mean that your funds are available straight away and at this point, you should make your choice between Caravaggio and Winter to win their respective race at Ascot this Friday the 23rd of June.

If you are successful with that punt, returns at 888Sport’s published book price will come back into your new account with the balance, up to whichever of the two price boosts is applicable, will arrive as a free bet token within 72 hours. Please check all of the terms and conditions relating to this deal and note that with 888Sport, you have 7 days in which to use your free bet tokens before they expire.

Your Choice

So, which of these two horses should you choose? Winter has the shortest price in the open markets and this is a three year old filly that hasn’t been out of the places in her six outings. Aidan O’Brien took over the reins, so to speak, in 2017 and that record has improved to the extent that Winter has two straight victories leading up to this point.

As for Caravaggio, this is another O’Brien charge who comes into this with a perfect record of five wins from five. The choice between the two won’t be an easy one therefore but this in an excellent price boost and whichever you decide upon, this promotion has the potential to deliver a serious profit.
