In order to watch Betfair live video’s horse racing you will need to place a matched bet on the ‘day of the race market’ using the Betfair exchange. The minimum bet is £2.
Remember that tote bets do not qualify. SP bets also do not qualify as matched bets until the start of the race, so you will be able to watch the race but not until after it has started.
Betfair’s site suggests that any changes to these conditions will be presented to you ahead of the live event so that you know all the terms and conditions ahead of time.
