17% Chance of Horse Racing resuming on or before 1st May 2020

All sporting events in the UK have been cancelled until further notice, however some punters are backing Horse Racing to resume by 1st May 2020

The Betfair Exchange market suggests that there is a possibility of horse racing starting up again in the next few weeks. The “UK Racing to resume on or before 1st May” betting market has seen around £17,000 aimed towards it since it was announced that British horse racing was to be suspended until May 1st, 2020.

As things stand, the “Yes” option on this particular market is available at 6.0 with a total of £133 being matched on this price. Conversely, you can get 1.17 on “No” at the moment, therefore implying that there is an 85% chance that Horse Racing in the UK won’t be resuming by the 1st of May 2020.

This in itself paints a pretty bleak picture for the sport, however many remain optimistic that racing can get back underway within the next few weeks, perhaps in time for the 1000 Guineas and 2000 Guineas which take place at Newmarket on May 5th 2020. Indeed “Yes” on the betting market has been matched as low as 4.4, this proof that some are still confident that the action will soon return.

The recently-adopted three-week lockdown will hopefully have the desired effect in the UK and while the outlook certainly isn’t that great, we can only hope that the situation improves and that we can still enjoy what could otherwise prove to be an amazing summer of racing in the UK.
