Fighting Fifth Hurdle: Get a 4/1 Price Boost on Buveur D’Air with 888Sport

Buveur D’Air

We’re now into the final month of the year and that means a great schedule of horse racing awaits us. Some top class renewals are in store in the lead up to the big Group Ones around the festive season and this weekend, attention switches to the Newcastle race course.

Saturday sees the Fighting Fifth Hurdle as the highlight of the card and this is a race that was first held back in 1969. This year, the event will be sponsored by Unibet and there is a healthy six figure prize fund awaiting the winner. With nine jumps to negotiate, this is a test for the runners and riders but ahead of this year’s renewal the bookies have a firm favourite in a five-horse field.

However, while the great Buveur D’Air is a short odds on across the standard betting, new customers at 888Sport could enjoy a generous price boost up to 4/1.

Out in Front

At the time of writing, regular 888 customers could get just 2/9 on Buveur D’Air winning the Fighting Fifth Hurdle this Saturday while the best possible odds elsewhere stood at 1/4 with Paddy Power and 188Bet.

That’s clearly a highly rated horse and those figures are put into further perspective by the gap to second favourite Irving at a best price of 9/2 with Bet365 and Winner Sports.

So, if that enhanced figure of 4/1 sounds interesting, here’s what you need to do next.

Sign Up

To confirm, this is for new customers to 888Sport so the first step is to register after heading to the sign up page. This is a fast and simple process and having input some basic details, you need to type in the Promo Code 888ODDS and then you’re ready to fund that account.

Make an initial deposit of at least £10.00 via a debit or credit card and then you can take up the bet. Stake between £5.00 and £10.00 on Buveur D’Air to win the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle on Saturday December 2, 2017 and if that lands you will be paid in two steps.

Initial profits at 888Sport’s standard book price will hit your account straight away as a cash payment while the balance will arrive as free bet tokens within 72 hours. Feel free to check all terms and conditions and note that those tokens need to be used within 7 days or they will expire.

Horse to Beat

The six year old Buveur D’Air has won eight of 11 races overall but it’s the 2017 record that makes the Nicky Henderson horse such a hot favourite on Saturday. Wins in the Cheltenham Hurdle and the Aintree Hurdle are a testament to his quality and there is a very small field with just four other horses standing in the way of victory.

Nothing is ever a certainty but this looks like a strong promo with a great enhanced price for new account holders at 888Sport.
