21.co.uk's Online Horse Racing Betting Markets
Aside from the obvious winner market, 21.co.uk offers so much more. Each way betting allows you to place a bet and still get returns even if your selection doesn't even win the race. Forecasts and Tricasts are another betting opportunity that allow you to predict the winner and also bet on who will finish behind them. Forecasts and Tricasts are the most difficult horse racing bets to predict, but they will also provide the highest returns.
21.co.uk's Horse Racing Betting Strategies
21.co.uk's simple and easy-to-read racecards make it easy to identify key horse racing information, which can help when choosing a horse racing betting market. The most important betting information is the horse's form. If a horse comes into a race on the back of a few wins or high placed finished, then they will have a strong chance of performing well in the next race. Although form can give you a good idea before placing your horse racing bets, it is worth double checking the class that a horse is racing in. If a horse is jumping up in a class, then the jump in quality might be too much.
Biggest Horse Racing Events
There are 3 main horse racing events that dominate the year; Cheltenham Festival, Royal Ascot and the Grand National. The Cheltenham Festival takes place each March and brings the world's best horses together for 4 days of racing. Royal Ascot is a similar event, but the crowds are the real attraction. Ascot attracts the highest number of spectators every year, for 5 days of racing. The Grand National is the pinnacle of horse racing betting. Up to 40 horses race at Aintree each year for the world's biggest race, as the winner takes home a 6 figure sum.
Key Terms In Horse Racing Betting
Horse racing betting has some unique terms that you may not find across other sports. Here are 21.co.uk's horse racing betting key terms:
Place - Each race will display a number of places. Typically places are up to 3rd or 4th, meaning that each way bets placed on horses in these positions will still see some returns.
Each Way - Placing an each way bet on a horse will double your stake, but will also take advantage of the race places, giving you an increased chance of winning.
Rule of 4 - If a horse pulls out of a race after you have already bet on it, then the Rule of 4 will be applied. This means that your returns will be decreased. Your returns decrease because your horse now has less competition in the race.
