On this page, you will find our Place Longshot tips, where we scout around all of the biggest race meetings across the UK and Ireland to find a selection of horses that we expect will place in their next run. Each horse we pick will usually have odds of around Evens, with our Longshot Horse Racing Tips typically reaching a price of 10/1 or above.
We will look to update our Place Longshot page with a new bet as soon as we see a selection of Each Way horses that we fancy. The intention is to always have our Place Longshot Accumulator Tips on this page in the run-up to another busy day of racing action, and it’s something that we usually achieve due to the masses of nags running on most days of the year.
Our Place Longshot consists of 5+ horses all to place in separate races. Placing is often referred to as Each Way betting, where bookmakers will provide another opportunity to claim returns if your chosen horse results in the top few places of the race. Your returns will be smaller based on where your chosen horse finishes in the race and if it results outside of the bookmaker-provided places, your bet will be classed as a losing selection, so it’s important to check how many places your chosen bookmaker offers for Each Way bets.
If your horse is able to win its respective race, you will be paid out with all of your potential returns, as betting each way sees half of the stake put on the horse to win and the other half put on the horse to place. By finishing outside first but inside the places provided, you’re given higher returns based on how close you come to winning the race, but you’ll lose the part of your stake which went towards backing the horse to win. Horse racing longshots come in several forms but backing them to place offers far more security, as punters rarely build Win Longshot Accumulator Tips due to the slim chance of picking so many winning horses in just one bet.
While there aren’t too many bookies who even offer a Place Market, SkyBet have capitalised in providing the best odds for any Place Longshot Tips. You have the option to create your own place bet by simply backing it on an each way basis but your odds will fluctuate. This is why we use Sky Bet exclusively for our place only betting tips, as you’ll be given a specific set of odds as long as your chosen horse is able to finish each way, and you can easily back horses each way with the SkyBet Place Betting market.
Another primary reason to stake your horse bets with SkyBet is for their Best Odds Guaranteed feature, where they assure the biggest price on all races from throughout the UK and Ireland. This means that if you place a bet on a horse to win or to place, you’ll be paid out at the strongest available price, even if the starting price (SP) changes before the race gets underway. We focus on this promotion for our Place Longshot of the Day, as it means that you’ll get an even better price for a market that typically offers an inferior price than you’d get for backing the same horse to win.
On our site, we update our NAP, Win Double, Each-Way Double, Lucky 15 and Request A Bet Tips pages daily. We do all of the research needed for backing reliable horse bets, and we always look to land the bets we post out, like the 4,600/1 Lucky 15 we won a few months back!
Whether you’re betting on-the-go or simply want to know how your bet is getting on, the Horse Tracker app has you covered, and it’ll do all of the hard work for you. You can download it for all mobile devices HERE.
