Ross O’Sullivan is an up-and-coming trainer of both flat and jump horses, with his Kildare yard producing several winners across both codes in recent years.

How do you bet on horse racing?

If you are unsure of how betting odds work, read our handy guide which provides you with all the information you need to start betting.

When you’re ready to place a bet, your first option is to head to the Betway Insider website to read through our experts’ horse racing tips. Each article will have a link to the sportsbook, where you can then place your bet.

Otherwise you can head straight to the Betway sportsbook to place your bet.

The most popular market on the sportsbook for horse racing betting is the race winner market, in which you place a bet on a horse to win a race outright.

Another popular market is the each-way bet, regularly presented as E/W on the sportsbook. When you back a horse each-way you are placing two bets – one on the horse to win outright and one on the horse to place. The sportsbook will set out how many places are available for each race – some races will offer more places than others, depending on the event and the number of horses running.

If you want to lengthen the odds of your bet, then you can place multi-selection wagers such as a Yankee or a Lucky 15.

A Lucky 15 bet is a four-selection wager that consists of 15 different bets: four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a four-fold accumulator.

A Yankee bet is a four-selection wager similar to a Lucky 15, but it consists of just 11 different bets: six doubles, four trebles and a four-fold accumulator. It is essentially a Lucky 15 minus the singles.

You are also able to place win doubles and each-way doubles, win trebles and each-way trebles, and accumulator bets of four horses or more.

Other multi-selection wagers that are available include Canadian, Lucky 31, Heinz, Lucky 63, Super Heinz, and Goliath bets.
