Bet on Horse Racing Betting Tips across the UK

Across the UK, there are so many horse racing events in which you can place bets, and within our selection of betting markets and our collection of today's racing tips, we'll have something which suits your preference.

At LeoVegas, we have sports book odds from all corners of the globe, so whether you're looking to place bets at smaller meetings at Newcastle, Chepstow and Wincanton, or you'd prefer to focus on the bigger racing events which take place over the course of a week such as the Cheltenham Festival or the Grand National, we'll provide racing tips for all of the main events.

If you prefer to browse horse racing tips from the other side of the globe, UK customers will also see markets for races taking place in the USA, at courses like Aquaduct and Keenland, racing from Australia at Belmont, New Zealand in Rotura and Vaal in South Africa.

That said, if you only have a passing interest in the sport or you're a new customer of LeoVegas, you may want to focus on the big events where you'll see top racing tips for the biggest national hunt contests such as the Cheltenham Gold Cup, which is run at Cheltenham Festival in March and the Grand National.

But if you prefer to stick to the flat races, then we have the Epsom Derby in June, Royal Ascot, which features a week of top-class races and international races such as the Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe from Paris in October.

Horse Racing Betting Terms

Before you place any bets following our horse racing tips, you may need a crash course in the terms you'll encounter when placing a bet. Take a below if you're a new customer and be in the know before you place your bets.

Back/Lay: To 'Back' a horse means that you are placing a bet on it to win or place. To 'Lay' a horse is the opposite, in that you think it will lose or miss out on the places.

Place: If a horse finishes second (or sometimes third or fourth, depending on the number of runners), it is said to have 'placed'. LeoVegas will sometimes offer extra places for bigger events, such as The Grand National.

Each-Way: An Each-Way is when you place a bet on your chosen horse to win the race but also wager the same amount on it to place, as a sort of covering bet. The returns will differ depending on where your horse finishes.

Exacta/Forecast: An Exacta or Forecast bet is when you wager on the exact horses that will finish in first and second, in that specific order.

Tricast/Trifecta: A Tricast or Trifecta is similar to an Exacta/Forecast, except that it applies to the top three horses rather than the top two. Again, you are wagering on the specific order you believe those horses will finish.

Rule 4: Rule 4 is important, as it can see your Betting Odds recalculated even after placing your wager if a horse pulls out ahead of the race, for example. This is due to the fact that your horse will, therefore, have less competition for places. There are some bets that are not subject to Rule 4, and more information about this can be found in our terms and conditions under Section B 6.1.
