Pre-Race Betting Guide
William Hill Horse Racing offers a very extensive range of pre-race markets. In smaller meetings where the pools are not yet very active, William Hill still offers Starting Price betting options so punters can wager a decent time before the race. Most exotics and multiples are also available giving punters great flexibility in their pre-race betting.
William Hill Radio provides commentary and analysis on all things racing, which is an informative tool for punters. Apart from the informative discussions it is also quite entertaining and fills in the gaps between races as players prepare for upcoming races.
William Hill offers live betting on selected horse racing events. This somewhat new feature allows punter to place bets on certain outcomes after the race has started.
As mentioned briefly above, William Hill offers a live streaming service for selected horse racing meetings. This feature facilitates the use of in play betting for users who don’t have access to the races via a tv.
The fast-paced action live betting provides is second to none, and even though it is not available on all races, it is certainly available on most major meetings.

Horse Racing Odds at William Hill
On Horse Racing meets punters are sure to receive the best available odds when betting with William Hill.
The William Hill tote betting ensures that punters receive odds at least equal to, if not better than the tote odds.
If you are like me, you don’t want to have accounts opened all over the place and prefer to pick 1 or 2 go to operators to wager with. In that context, William Hill does a very good job at ensuring its customers always get great value odds even when considering fixed price betting options.
The fact is that William Hill’s size results in them taking in a lot of money on every race so they can operate at margins which result in punters getting better value.
