Unique to William Hill, they offer a Best Odds Guarantee on almost all Irish and UK races, so that if the odds at the time you make the bet are lower than the actual starting price (SP) odds, you get paid out at the SP price if your horse comes in!
More Future Wagering

As major races like the Kentucky Derby draw closer, the contenders get sorted from the prenetenders, and in the weeks leading up to the race, future wager odds are dropping. That’s why the sooner you can get get your bet in on today’s longshot, the more it will pay when that horse emerges as the favourite.
