Over the last couple of days, punters had their sights fixed on football games, as the qualifiers for Euro 2016 pitted the best European teams against each other. Action has been intense at Bet365, but until next month when the qualifiers resume, players should focus on horse races.

The same bookmaker runs the famous Channel 4 races free bets campaign, with the highlight of the week being the Friday and Saturday races. By backing any single winner at odds of 4/1 or more in any race televised live on Channel 4, members will have the stakes matched with a free bet. Regardless of the time they choose to place the wager, they are certain to benefit from the best odds, thanks to the Best Odds Guaranteed pledge.
