What to consider

One of the best things about an ante-post horse racing bet is that your chances of winning big are better when you place a wager early.

Market movers don’t usually appear until closer to the main event, so by betting early on you have the opportunity to analyse the undervalued racers and make a handsome profit from them.

However, one of the main things to consider when betting on horse racing in advance is whether the horse you back will compete or not.

When you back a horse that drops out of a race, this is known as a ‘non-runner bet’ and sadly you will not be reimbursed.

On the day of the event, all markets regarding ante-post betting will be closed.
