This is only for bookmakers that that accept fixed odd horse racing betting.
I will split them into 4 groups. Are there untrustworthy sites in group 4? Any that I have missed?

1 – Trustworthy sites that take at least 5-10 arbs to limit, and will lay to a liability of over €1,000 per bet.
Bet365, Totesport, Betfred, Paddypower, Stanjames, Ladbrokes, Willhill, Betfair Sportsbook, Betpack.

2. Trustworthy sites that will lay up to a liability of over €1,000 per bet but will limit us within our first few arbs
Sportingbet, Betvictor, 888sport, Boylesports

3. Trustworthy sites which will not lay a liability of over €1,000 per bet from the beginning
Coral, Brucebetting, Skybet

4. Sites that I am unsure if I can trust. Should they be in Cat 1,2 3 or avoided?

Winner, Bgbet, Jetbull, Corbetts and clones*, Marathon,  Apollobet, Betmcclean, Seaniemac, Jenningsbet, Betterbet, Betbright, Racebets, 32red, Betway, 10bet, 138.com, Gentingbet, Netbet, Smartlivesports, Spreadex, Vernons, Youwin, Unibet, 188bet, dafabet, 1x2sports

* clones of corbetts are mattjarvis, scotbet, pridmore and chisholmbet

All the bookies you mention are reputable enough in terms of paying out winnings etc but with your categories, the trouble is that the books are so alike with limitations nowadays that I wouldn't really put many of them into distinct categories. Basically they are more or less as bad as each other especially on horse racing even though the bookies try to play down the issue with Sky Bet plucking a figure out of the air recently in the Racing Post that only 1% of their account holders are restricted  ::). With horse racing the bookies are so defensive that is the sport you are most likely to get quick limitations more than any other.

I've read that SBOBet and Maxbet do horse racing but I would have thought that would be just be tote odds or SP only service rather than their own traders' odds but it's probably worth a check anyway. On Twitter recently, Pinnacle Sports have been insinuating (probably jokingly) that they may start doing horse racing when they make their expected return to the UK by the end of the year. Now that would shake up the horse racing market  ;D

There are big differences in the like of what bet365 and, say, brucebetting will lay.
Are there any other books not in group 1 that should be there?

In my experience, if you have a fresh account with any of these firms, they will all lay to lose £1,000-£1,500 to start with, whether it is Bet365, Bruce Betting or any of them which for the majority of people is more than enough. But once they see you are taking value prices that are higher than on an exchange (whether you are betting £10 or £500), all of them in my view are the same that within 5-10 bets you can expect you to be limited not just on horse racing but on every sport.

5-10 years ago, you could differentiate which bookies took good bets for a long period of time on horse racing but unfortunately, I believe it is a redundant argument to be discussing which bookies take good bets on horse racing arbs without limiting quickly as they have all now become so similar in this regard. Ultra quick limiting of accounts seems to be worse than it has ever been in general with any sport, but the bookmakers seem to be more risk averse in horse racing than any other sport.
