idea is very simple. Each day we identify horses whose odds before a
race are overpriced i.e. a horse whose true chance of winning a race is
lower than the odds on offer. You will be advised to back the horse at
the available morning price and then lay the horse off when the market
realises its true market value. This is what is known as TRADING.
Trading is essentially betting on the movement of a horse's price. If
you think that a selection's price will fall, you would back it now and
lay it later at the lower price. As long as the price moves in the
direction that you have anticipated, you will be able to lock in an
immediate and certain profit. This trading process can be repeated
several times within one event.
Either wait until the price changes before closing out for a profit, or
you can ask for the exit price you want and wait until it is matched.
You can adjust the price and the stake of your horse at any time.
You do not have to provide funds to cover your closing bet. This is
because the exchange automatically treats the potential winnings from
your first bet as the stake for your closing bet.
Horse Racing Betfair traders also benefit from a reduced commission
liability, as commission is payable on your overall market profit, as
opposed to the profit from your winning selection.
Betfair Trading Example - Taking A Profit
We advise Betfair Help for £100 at 16/1. He is now trading at 6.5.
To take make a no risk bet where you win if Betfair Help wins, and have
your stake money returned if he loses, you would lay him for £100 at
By placing this bet you immediately get your stake money returned. If
Betfair Help loses you gain or lose nothing. If he wins your net gain
would be about £900.
Betfair Trading Example - Win Win Situation
We advised Betfair Bot is trading too high at 18.
In this example you would want to lay Betfair Bot for more than you backed him for.
By placing a win bet of £50 at 18 and then laying it off at a shorter price e.g 8 for more than £50 e.g £110 you would create a win-win situation where a profit is returned if Betfair Bot wins or loses.
If Betfair Bot is successful, your net gain on the outcome would be about £80. If he loses, your net gain would be £60.
