If you bet on a horse to finish in a place, you are backing the horse to finish in the top 2, 3 or 4, depending on the number of runners in the race. Because the horse doesn’t have to win, it can prove very useful when backing big price outsiders.Betting Without The Favourite
Betting Without the Favourite is the best way to take the favourite out of the equation. If you think that the horse that you fancy won’t beat the favourite, you can still get a good price in Paddy Power‘s Betting Without Market.
The price will obviously be slightly reduced compared with the Starting Price (SP).
Paddy Power Insure Bet
Insurebet 2 Places is a way of placing a bet that will give you your money back if your horse finishes second in the race. If you choose Insurebet, you will get a slightly reduced price, but the comfort of your money back if your horse is denied victory.
If you choose Insurebet 3 Places, Paddy Power will give you your money back if your horse finishes second or third in the race.
Horse Racing Match Betting
Here you select two horses to race against each other in a match bet.
The overall result of the race is irrelevant, as long as your selection finishes ahead of the other horse involved in the match bet.
