Many prominent online bookmakers now claim to offer this concession on UK and Irish horse racing. In short, if you take a price with them and the starting price is bigger, then they will pay you at the larger price. However, a closer look at the 'small print' reveals that this offer frequently comes with strings attached. Below is a summary of what you can expect from some of the leading operators who advertise this concession:

Coral: As above

BetVictor: As above

McBookie: As above

Boylesports: As above

Paddy Power: As above
