What In-Play Markets are Available?

Betting in-play is increasingly popular on horse racing and there are many markets available for you to utilise while the race is in-play. To give you an idea of what is available at different betting sites for horse racing, take a look at the different in-play markets below.

To win the race

This is the main market and it is simply choosing who will win the race. For a short period of time on longer races you can bet each way on this market but after that period it will turn to win only the odds change at that point to reflect the change in the market, and if you want to see what happens, watch a race live while keeping an eye on the odds.

Match Betting

The second market you can bet on is a match betting market that has been created for in-play betting. Here you are betting on a match between two horses, and you are choosing which horse you think finish in the highest position out of those two horses. The race result doesn’t matter, or the positons they finish in, it is simply a case of which horse does best.

Finishing Position

The final market to bet on is the finishing position of the horse. This is a market where you back a horse to finish third or better, or to finish fourth or lower. This market can be used two different ways, the first way if you think the horse has a good chance of winning the race, but you want to cover your bet by backing it to finish in the top three. The second is to back a horse you think will perform poorly in the race to finish fourth or lower.
