Coral’s faller insurance has been one of the longest running and best insurance offers for horse racing for many years now and over that time has saved punters from stake losses due to fallers in quite literally thousands of races.
This season, however, Coral have gone one better and are offering Fail To Finish insurance, which covers your bet if your horse fails to finish for other reasons other than falling, such as refusing to race or pulling up.
In the region of 5% of all horses fall during UK and Irish jump races, of course varying depending on distance, ground conditions, experience, fence type / number, etc., and almost every horse will fall at least once during a season. For regular bettors having a back up for this scenario can prove hugely valuable. Add to this the numerous horses who pull up before the end or refuse during the race and it adds up to a significant number.
Coral’s money back as a free bet if your fails to finish applies to selected jump meetings from late October to April (the National Hunt Season). The promotion generally covers at least one feature race meeting each day, often more during weekends and holiday periods. This will include the big feature meetings too such as the November Meeting, Winter Festival and Cheltenham Festival, along with most ITV racing.
The offer is valid for all win stakes (and win part of each-way bets) up to £10, with a minimum stake of £1 required. If your horse falls, is brought down by another horse, unseats its jockey, pulls up, bolts or refuses then your stake will be returned.
The promotion is valid for selected races listed on the Coral site, from 8am on the day of the meeting. Any free bets will be credited within 24 hours, there is no limit on how many races or the number of non-finishers you can get a free bet from. Therefore if it is a soggy wet day with soft ground and big fences to jump then this deal can be very useful.
Free bet tokens are to be used on any horse racing and are valid for 7 days from award. The offer applies to win singles, not to special markets such as ‘betting without’. Fail to finish insurance also does not apply to multiple bets.
