Ante-Post prices are offered prior to the race becoming classed as ‘Day-of-Race’. Ante Post markets are offered up to and including the day prior to the event. If, during the course of any Ante Post Entry/Forfeit or Declaration stage, odds are incorrectly left up on the website, these bets will be void.
Non-Runner No Bet (NRNB) markets are clearly marked as such when the stake will be refunded if your selection does not participate.
Early Price markets are offered on most if not all UK, Irish, German, French and South African markets and is the term used for when fixed odds are available. For UK and Irish markets the term 'Early Prices' can also be used to describe the odds before the show or board prices become available.
Day-of-Race markets are those offered at the time at which overnight declarations have been made. If there are any withdrawals then Rule 4 will also apply.
Head-to-Head bets may be offered on certain races, with markets available for match-ups chosen by us. Fixed-odds will be on offer for either horse to finish the race ahead of the other one.
We will always try to match runners that we feel have a similar chance of winning the race. However, it is important to remember that your horse does not need to win the race for you to win your bet. Your horse only has to finish in front of the horse that it is matched with in the head-to-head market.
Should none of these runners finish the race or any of these runners become a non-runner, all bets on the according Head-to-Head market shall be voided and the stake money refunded.
We offer a number of Special Bets markets with fixed-odds and the rules of these markets may vary. For example, we might pose the question ‘Who will be the Top National Hunt Trainer in the forthcoming National Hunt season?’. We clearly define how the outcome will be reached and your bet would be based on our definition. We might choose ‘Total Prize-Money Won’, ‘Number of Races Won’, or something similar.
There are a number of specific Special Bets markets defined in more detail in our Betting Rules:
