Welcome to the horse racing matched betting guides section of Matched Betting Zest.

Horse racing offers are bookmaker promotions. We use matched betting to take advantage of these offers.

Horse racing explained

These guides offer an introduction to horse racing matched betting:

Beginner Horse Racing Guides

Best Odds Guaranteed

Saturday ITV racing

Horse racing offer guides

Most horse racing offers are “refund if” a certain outcome happens in a horse race.

The desired outcome may not happen, so some offers are not risk free. It’s important to minimise your qualifying losses to make more long term profit.

Advanced horse racing matched betting

Price boosts

Bookmakers offer price boosts for big race meetings. Or daily bonus times with enhanced odds. Examples include Betfred price boosts and William hill enhanced odds. These boosts offer frequent arbitrage opportunities.

Exchange Liability

To complete horse racing offers, you’ll need a few hundred pounds at the exchanges.

Horse racing festivals

Major horse racing festivals are great for matched betting.  Look for Cheltenham festival in March, Aintree festival in April, and Royal Ascot in June. Big meetings attract bookmaker offers and boosts.

Horse racing mug betting 

When doing horse offers, also place matched bets on races with no offer attached.  This strategy should give your accounts a “mug punter” style profile. Back and lay horses at similar odds to look less like a bonus hunting matched bettor.

We’ve now introduced the various horse racing matched betting guides. This is the hub for all your horse racing guides.
