Betfair Insider: Today’s Horse Racing Tips

The Betfair Insider is the resident Exchange expert and the go-to for today’s horse racing tips. He provides commentary, opinion and educates on all things Thoroughbred racing. Check out the Betfair Hub and the Betfair Exchange for the latest odds.


There’s one race to keep an eye on in my opinion where we can utilise betting in-play on the Exchange:

Bendigo Race 2 – Simply Optimistic

Expecting a hot tempo here with Sam’s Image, Vungers and She’s a Thief in the race, so we will try and focus on Simply Optimistic.

There are plenty of horses here off very long breaks but Simply Optimistic has a great fresh record and has enough speed to hopefully stalk the leaders.

If we can get around the $4.5 – $5 mark we can take a position pre-race and set a lay trap at half your matched price, however, if you didn’t take a position pre-race I am hopeful at some stage the leaders will fall in a hole and we can back him before the turn if he looks to be travelling well behind them.

BACK to LAY — Simply Optimistic


Betfair is a low margin exchange, just like Airbnb. We create markets for punters to take on punters. And we want winners.
