Betting on horse racing specials is a great way to mix up the routine, especially on festival weekends.
There’s always a daily special and you can add spice to the racing tomorrow by betting on Favourites. Here, you bet on where the starting-price favourite of each race in a meet will finish. If it wins you get 25 points, second 10 and third 5. Simply bet on how many points the favourites will collect together over a day and then enjoy the races!
Of course, there are loads of Cheltenham specials available when the festival gets underway each spring but there are also year-long ones too.
The road to Cheltenham is often tricky for horses but you can bet today on whether the StanJames Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle will convert that form into victory at the StanJames Champion Hurdle later in the year.
The StanJames Champion Hurdle is in itself one of the biggest races in the calendar and the prices are already fluctuating on which horse will emerge triumphant. Hurricane Fly shot to fame with a second victory in this race in 2013, while Faugheen and jockey Ruby Walsh were first past the post in 2015.
Champion Jockey betting
Of course we’ve got betting on the Champion Jockey now that everyone’s favourite, AP McCoy, has retired!
You’ll see the existing odds on a horse and the potential pay-out should that horse win. Simply name your stake in the box below and place that bet.
Richard Johnson is all set to win for 2015/16 but the next season the odds could flip, with a number of talented jockeys all keen to clinch the coveted trophy.
