On this page you will find five selections that since the original odds for the race had come out these certain ones have changed and these horses have been backed in there certain market for the day’s racing. This will give you updates on a daily basis and for all the major meetings and festivals of the year including the Cheltenham Festival, the Grand National and Royal Ascot.
We have always provided race-by-race singles and will continue to do so, but this is not tipping the horses this is identifying the differing in odds from when they first came out to now.
The market being moved can be caused by numerous different things. However, the normal and most common reason why a horse is either backed in or backed out is because of the money being staked on that horse. The generic movement of the market is taken from the original price the horse has started off at with the bookmakers.
If a horse started at 9/1 and punters are piling money onto that horse for whatever reason the odds will change to be shorter causing the market to move. On the other hand this can happen the opposite way with a horse starting favourite at 2/1 and then money is being flooded into the market for other horses and not that specific one meaning the price of that horse can go up.
Normally punters may make best off the back of reading the market if the horses price rises from its original standings they will normally stay away but if the horses price is backed in they may jump on and follow the market. However this does not necessarily mean that this horse is better or worse than what it actually is.
It is just the bookmakers and the punters moving the market around on there preference on who they think will win the race.
