These markets offer customers the chance to bet on the winning margin of a given race, featuring a short-priced favourite, and we are currently trialling a new format. We have simplified the selections to just YES/NO, and the winning margin is now in the market name, e.g. 15:35 Shishkin To Win By More Than 4.5 Lengths. Previously this market would have been called How Far Shiskin, and contained the selections; To Win By Up To And Including 4.25L, 4.5L Or More, and Shishkin Not To Win.

The new look aligns closely with line markets available for other sports, and we hope that customers find them more accessible. Any feedback can be left in the thread below.

It was more interesting the way it was.

I always thought they did the other way so you were not having to bet an oddson shot. now with 2 options there is an odds on shot every race. Far better the 3 or espically 4 options way.

Much much better the way it was. With the new system there is also reduced liquidity. Please go back to the old system

Much prefer old style with 3 or 4 options. If the plan was to increase liquidity, it hasn't worked. Please go back to old style.

I have never bet on winning distances, but this does look to be an improvement.  As stated by Betfair, this brings it into line with other sports, in particular Asian Handicap (which I used to like when I did bet on football).  This is something that I will be looking into, as I like bets at close to evens.
