These maximum amounts will apply even if, by taking a price, the level of potential winnings exceeds these amounts. Where selections are taken from different categories listed below and are combined in multiple or accumulative bets, the lowest maximum payout limit will apply. Where bets have been placed on different days the maximum amount which can be won in one days betting is determined by the day on which the final event on each slip is resolved rather than the day on which each individual bet is placed.

You must then hand the slip, together with the full stake, to a member of staff who will process your bet by scanning it through our EPoS system.
The bet number and image or printed bet details must be registered on our EPoS system and be printed on your receipt for the bet to be valid. No bet is accepted until we have provided you with a valid receipt that the bet has been accepted by us. We reserve the right to refuse to accept the whole, or any part of any bet.
We reserve the right to void any accepted bets and withhold settlement if we have reason to believe:. We also reserve the right to void a bet if required to do so by the Gambling Commission. We reserve the right to void any bet accepted by us and withhold settlement if we become aware that the bet breaches the governing rules of the relevant sport or event in question.
Where we have taken steps to void a bet for one of the above reasons, your actions leading to that shall be considered a breach of our Terms and Conditions and entitle us to terminate our relationship with immediate effect. In such circumstances we may use the monies we hold as winnings on any bets placed by you with us in order to settle any liabilities we may incur as a result of your actions. Telephone bets, postal bets or bets put through letterboxes are not accepted in our licensed betting offices.
In the event of any difference between the original slip presented by the customer and the customer receipt, the selections as they appear on the receipt as captured by our EPoS system will determine settlement. It is the responsibility of the customer to check the receipt carefully as mistakes cannot be rectified after the event. It is your responsibility to ensure your bets are written clearly and also that your timing, instructions, spelling and stakes are correct.

Any bet accepted in error and contrary to these provisions relating to the time of acceptance, will be void even if you have been provided with a valid printed receipt.
We reserve the right to refuse payment on any bet where we are unable to substantiate the selections and the instructions on our EPoS system. We do not accept any responsibility for a bet not being placed for any reason, including but not limited to; computer or till malfunction, electricity failure, failure of telecommunications systems or services.
A betting shop is, by its very nature, a fast moving environment. Odds move rapidly and bets are taken continuously, consequently mistakes can occur. We will do all that we can to avoid this but we cannot accept responsibility for any obvious errors or omissions in respect of the announcing, publishing or marking of prices, handicaps, place terms, runners or results despite our every effort to ensure total accuracy.
If we do make an obvious error then the following rules will apply:. If a bet is accepted in error by us at a price or market condition, as indicated above, that is:. Bets are settled in accordance with the rules that govern the particular bet made.
If a bet is inadvertently accepted with any prices not written by or endorsed by our staff, the prices will stand provided they are clearly written and were available at the time the bet was processed. Bets placed on horse racing will be settled in accordance with the official Weighed In Result. Where a result is amended after the Weigh In, for example, further to a successful appeal, the amendment will be ignored for settlement purposes.
In accumulative wagers where bet contingencies are related or where the same selection is taken to win more than one event, a combined price that reflects the relativity will be applied for settlement, regardless of any individual prices marked on the betting slip. In instances where a combined price cannot be applied the bet will be settled as singles dividing the total stake available proportionately amongst the selections.
If no combined price is quoted then the bet will be settled as two half stake singles. In the event of a dead heat for first place, the stake money on a winning selection is divided by the number of winners in the dead heat, and the full odds paid to the reduced stake, with the remainder of the stake money being lost. A similar rule applies to the place part of a bet where, as a result of a dead heat, more than the required number of selections are placed. This offer applies to winning single and multiple bets and the win part of each-way bets.
The exceptions where First Past the Post does not apply and bets are only settled according to the official result are;. If a winner is disqualified after the official result is announced, the disqualification will not affect the settlement of bets. Bets placed on Greyhound racing are settled on the official result announced at the conclusion of the event.
Football and other sports. If the PA amends its decision afterwards all bets will stand on their originally announced result. Any subsequent corrections or amendments will not apply for settlement purposes. Bets are acceptable win or each-way. Where we are not offering special each-way terms on a race the place part of a n each-way b et at Starting Price or displayed price is settled in the following manner:. In handicap races of 16 or more runners we pay one quarter of the win odds for first, second, third and fourth places.
In handicap races of runners we pay one quarter of the win odds for first, second and third places. In all other races races of 8 or more runners we pay one fifth of the win odds for first, second and third places. In races of 5, 6 or 7 runners we pay one quarter of the win odds for first and second places. In races of less than five runners the place money goes on to win. In races of 8 or more runners we pay one fifth of the win odds for first, second and third places.
Special Offers. From time to time we may offer special each-way terms on individual races. When this occurs we reserve the right to alter the standard place terms detailed above e. Customers should check the place terms of a race whenever the number of places paid changes, particularly when we offer additional places. Where there are an insufficient number of finishers for the placed terms advertised only those runners officially placed will be treated as successful selections and bets on all non-finishers will be lost.
O ther than where Place Only betting is available, where a place stake is in excess of the amount staked to win, the difference will be equally apportioned win and place to the selection s. For events other than horse and greyhound racing on which bets are accepted, settlement will be based on the odds and place terms advertised and applicable at the time the bet was taken. When special place only betting is returned for a race this will rule settlement of all place only bets on the race.
Starting price bets will be accepted, win only, on absolute, first and second favourites, in both horse and greyhound racing. If each-way is taken in error the place part of any such bet will be void win or lose.
If two horses are quoted at the same odds, and those odds are shorter than those quoted for any others, then those two are equal first favourite and equal second favourite. However, if such joint favourites are returned at a price whereby irrespective of result, no profit could accrue to a backer of the favourite, the un-named favourite will be treated as a non-runner. This section and the one preceding will apply equally to greyhound racing.
The only exception to this is in speciality bets, such as The Place etc. If a named selection is wrongly written so that more than one horse could conceivably be intended, the stake will be equally divided between or among the selections involved. A named selection which is not doubly engaged but is timed for the wrong race or a different meeting stands for the race in which it runs. If a horse and dog of the same name run on the same day, and it is not clear which is the selection, the bet will be settled as on the horse.
If the bet is placed after one of the two has run, it will be on the one still to run. When the only difference in name between two runners engaged on the same day is the suffix of the country of origin, bets will be settled as on the one without the suffix, unless the suffix or a determining race time is shown on the slip. If, however, one of the horses has already run that day, the bet will be considered as being for the horse still to run.
Where a single stake and name of a selection are given with no instructions, the bet will be taken as for a win single. Where there is more than one selection in different horse or dog races and no instructions are given, with no indication being given by stake unit of the clients intention, the stake will be divided equally on win singles. If the two selections are in the same race it will be settled as a straight forecast.
In all cases, bets will be settled as win bets, unless each way is specified. Where the same selection is included more than once in a multiple bet, or where selections from the same race are included, stakes will be divided equally in those parts of the bet where the selections clash.
If, however, one of the selections is also entered for another race on the day, the bet will be settled as for the races in which they do not clash. Where instructions are so illegible that they cannot be understood, the bet will be void. Where an incorrect number of doubles is stated to cover the selections given, the total amount staked on the doubles is divided and invested equally among the correct number of doubles.
A similar rule applies to singles, trebles etc. However, where a double, treble, fourfold etc. Where too many selections appear in a multiple type bet it will be settled in the following manner:. Where there are too few selections in a multiple type bet, then a non-runner or non-runners will be added. Thus, four selections with a Canadian instructed and staked, will have one non-runner added. Unless covered by the preceding section of this rule:.
No overstaking will be returned. However, if there is more than one bet involved and it is clear to which bet the overstaking applies, then that bet only will be apportioned. If a selection is not thereby defined, the stakes will be divided equally between those favourites whose race times continue to coincide. Where a favourite bet has no meeting, race time or any other indication of the race intended, it will stand for the earliest advertised race, horse or greyhound, still to be run.
When a favourite bet does not have the meeting nominated, the bet will stand for the races timed, providing those times do not clash with other races with the same advertised race time. Where times of such races clash, the stake will be divided equally between those races having the same advertised times, whose results are being transmitted race-by-race to our offices. The same applies to numbered selections except that the stake is only divided over those races where the times clash and the numbered selections appear.
Where a race card number is stated and no such number appears in the race then that selection will be treated as a non-runner. Where combination or accumulative bets are involved and the client makes clear by the exact times given, that only one meeting can be intended, he will be on that meeting, even if some race times clash with races at other meetings.
Thus if a bet is a Yankee 2. Where meeting and time are given, but no selection, it will be taken as for the SP favourite. Where a selection is doubly engaged and is timed by the client, it will be settled as a bet for that timed race only. Where it is untimed, or incorrectly timed, the bet will be on the first race where it runs, after the time of acceptance. If two selections, one of which is doubly engaged, are included in an accumulative bet, and run in the same race, the one which is double engaged will be deemed to be timed for the race where they do not clash.
If both are doubly engaged, the selection written first on the slip will be timed for the race in which it runs, and the other timed for the race where they do not clash. This does not apply to single wagers, which will be treated as entirely separate bets.
When there has not been time to re-form the market, deductions are made from winning returns on the race, exclusive of stake, according to the table shown below. When there has been time to re-form the market, the deductions if any, will apply only to bets at screen or board prices struck prior to the announcement of the withdrawal. Price of the non-runner at the time of withdrawal.
In the event of two or more horses being withdrawn before coming under starter's orders, the total deduction will be the sum of the individual deductions, up to a maximum of 90 pence in the pound. Where a single 5p Rule 4 deduction applies to any one betting show or the SP market in the UK or Ireland , as a concession, the deduction will be waived.
If the total Rule 4 deductions exceed 5p, then all deductions will be applied. In such circumstances, the appropriate level of deduction will be determined by reference to the prices on offer at the time of withdrawal. When a greyhound is withdrawn In the event of a NO RACE being re-run, all bets for that race stand at starting price for the re-run race unless previously cancelled by the customer.
We reserve the right to apply a Rule 4 deduction to outright bets on sporting events when a player, contestant or team is withdrawn from the betting after having been declared to play. For betting purposes we consider a player to have been declared to play if he is included in a first round draw for sports like tennis, snooker and darts or its equivalent in other sports. Early Prices are prices advertised for a race after the final declarations have been made.
They are available each day for selected races up to the first show of prices from the on-course market or the first show of prices from our service provider transmitted to our shops. Board Show Prices are generally available minutes before the start of horse and greyhound races and are transmitted to our shops from the on-course market or are collated by our service provider.
In events with 2 or more runners, we will lay the current quoted price at the time the bet is accepted. Clients who request a price should ensure that the quoted price has been written on the betting slip. If there are any palpable errors in the Board Prices laid, transmitted or marked-up, the bet will be settled at the corrected price for the time the bet was made or at SP, whichever is the greater.
Any such bets taken in error will be settled at starting price. Place terms on each-way bets at displayed odds are governed by the number of starters in the race and not by the number of declared runners at the time the price was taken. Should a horse be withdrawn, whereby Tattersalls Rule 4 c would apply, no prices can be laid after the withdrawal, unless there has been time for a new market to be formed.
For horses, a bet placed after the final declarations have been made generally 10am the previous day is not an ante-post bet and in the event of any withdrawals, the withdrawn horse will be treated as a non-runner. Returns from bets on other horses in the event will be subject to deductions on the Rule 4 c scale, depending on the price of the withdrawn horse or horses at the time of withdrawal. Where a race contains reserves at the final declaration stage we will offer an early price for all of the declared runners including the reserves.
When a declared runner is announced as a non-runner we will revise the market and all bets struck prior to the announcement of the non-runner will be subject to a Rule 4 c deduction where the price of the non-runner is such that a Rule 4 c deduction applies.
If a reserve becomes a non-runner prior to the racecourse declaration stage i. If, at the racecourse declaration stage a reserve becomes an official runner by taking the place of a withdrawn horse then Rule 4 c will apply to the reserve horse if it is subsequently withdrawn. In the event of a dead-heat for first place, the stake money on the winning selection will be divided by the number of winners in the dead-heat and full odds will be paid to the divided stake with the remainder of the stake being lost.
A similar rule applies in place betting where, as a result of a dead-heat, more than the required number of selections occupy the place position s. Where bets have been placed at ante-post prices then different rules apply, see section 1. If a race is re-run, then bets at board prices or early prices in the original race will be settled at SP. When a race is declared a no-race and is re-run, all bets will stand for the greyhounds which take part in the re-run, but single bets may be cancelled by mutual agreement before the re-run starts.
Selections in multiple bets will stand for the re-run race. The starting prices returned on the re-run will rule settlement, board prices from the original race will stand unless there is a non-runner in which case they will not be valid and such bets will be settled at starting price.
If betting is suspended bets may be cancelled by mutual consent prior to the market being reformed. A re-run race is taken as in the order it was originally placed on the programme, and no notice is taken of the time of the re-run.
When a race is declared void and is not re-run, all bets on that race will be void, and will not count for any additional reserve race. Ante-post bets are accepted on horse races at quoted prices up to the time that the overnight declarations are known 10 a.
Ante-post bets are accepted on the basis of all-in, run-or-not, entered-or-not, so long as entry was not precluded by the conditions of the race. Returns for accumulative bets will be settled in the same manner as SP bets. Unless otherwise provided for, the following rules apply:. If the original overnight declarations do not stand then bets will be void. In any such cases, accumulative and combination ante-post bets will stand on the remaining legs, at the prices laid on the selections in those races, with the void selection counting as a non-runner throughout the bet.
In the event of horses being balloted out, the liabilities of layers against the horses remaining will be reduced on both win and place parts of such bets, in accordance with the rate to be announced before the race by Tattersalls Committee, in accordance with Tattersalls Rule 4 c , dependant upon the odds currently available against the withdrawn horses at the time of the official withdrawal.
When prices are offered to win a greyhound competition, bets accepted before the draw for the penultimate round semi-final has been made will be on an 'all in run or not' basis, and non-runners will be treated as losers. If the re-introduced greyhound goes on to win or be placed in the race all bets will stand.
Bets accepted at prices issued after the draw for the penultimate round semi final but prior to the draw for the final will not be subject to Ante-Post rules, and any non-runner will be treated as void for settlement purposes. Tattersalls' Rule 4 c will apply to bets on the remaining greyhounds, with the amount of the deduction based on the price of the withdrawn greyhound at the time that the bet was struck.
When a greyhound is withdrawn after the draw for the final is made all bets struck after the draw but prior to withdrawal at our prices will be settled at starting price, and bets on the withdrawn greyhound will be void. Bets are executed at the price ruling at the time the bet is accepted by us.
We reserve the right to correct any palpable errors. Each-way bets are calculated win-to-win, place-to-place, and for the place part the fractional odds and number of places relating to each event will be those pertaining at the time of acceptance. When the same selection is taken to win two or more races in ante-post doubles or trebles, special odds may be laid and those will govern settlement. Cash-in-hand from one selection cannot go on to the same selection or any selection in the same race.
Bets will be executed in strict rotation until the stake plus winnings are exhausted. Should there be insufficient cash-in-hand to cover all selections, the bet will be settled so far as the cash-in-hand will allow, in accordance with written instructions, but, where an each-way bet cannot be fully covered, the win and place parts will be given equal preference.
Where this is not specified, the stake on the immediately preceding selection will be taken as the amount intended. If double stakes are required this must be written in the instructions. Settlement is then governed by the result first given by the racecourse judge as transmitted by the course betting service provided the winner has completed the correct course. This does not include void races or where the race is determined by incorrect weights carried. It also does not include bets which rely on dividends being declared e.
Pari-Mutuel, Tote betting, Tricasts, etc. Bets are accepted only for selections in different races. Selections will be settled in the order written on the slip. If 15 doubles are instructed and the jockey rides in only 4 races the bet will be settled as on 4 mounts plus 2 non-runners. Where a meeting is not specified and a jockey rides at more than one meeting, doubles, trebles, etc.
Where it is only a single bet and the race is not timed, it will be on the next race to be run in which the jockey has a mount. If two or more start at the same lowest price then stakes will be divided equally between them. Where specific races are requested and the jockey has no mount in a specified race, this will be treated as a non-runner. This also applies to owners and trainers selected. Subject to the following rules, forecasts are accepted in singles, doubles and trebles only.
Accumulators are not accepted, unless in speciality bets available in our offices. If otherwise accepted they will be settled as trebles with the stakes being equally apportioned. Forecasts are available in races of 3 or more runners and will be settled in accordance with the computer straight forecast dividend. Any forecast accepted in error on races with less than 3 runners or where a race is reduced to less than three runners will be void.
If a forecast contains a non-runner, the same selection is repeated, a racecard number is specified which does not appear on the racecard or a lone selection is specified, the forecast will be settled as a single. If the selections run in different races then the stake will be split as two half stake singles on each selection. Returns for forecast doubles or trebles will be calculated by multiplying the appropriate return for each forecast.
Written instructions for a selection with the field or a selection against the field will be taken as for the selection to win. Instructions for the field with, or the field against, will be taken as for the selection to finish second. Where 3 or more selections are given, settlement will be made as a full combination of forecasts. If a smaller number of combinations than the full permutation is required, the slip must make this clear. Where a permutation is used which could apply either to forecasts or tricasts and neither is specified, the bet will be settled on forecasts.
If neither is returned bets will be void for settlement purposes. In all circumstances where a Greyhound Computer Forecast is not declared settlement will be based on the N. Straight Forecast Chart. Tricasts, in which selections must finish first, second and third in correct order, in races for which an official computer tricast return is declared, are accepted in singles only.
Stakes for tricast doubles or trebles, where taken in error, will be divided equally to cover each tricast race in singles only. Tricasts may be declared on certain greyhound races not transmitted live into our offices. Bets accepted for races not specified, or for which no tricast dividend is declared, will be settled as computer straight forecasts on the selections nominated to finish first and second, with the selection nominated for third place disregarded. Only named selections or racecard numbers will be accepted in tricasts, with name taking precedence where both are used.
In the event of any ambiguity, the tricast will be declared void, as will any tricast which contains an unnamed favourite. Where the same selection is repeated the stake will be invested as a CSF on the two different selections in the order written. Should a tricast contain a non-runner or a racecard number is specified which does not appear on the racecard the total stake will be invested on a straight forecast on the remaining selections in the order written.
In the case of a full cover combination, the total stake will be divided equally as a reverse forecast on the remaining 2 selections. Should there be 2 non-runners or 2 racecard numbers are specified which do not appear on the racecard then the total stake will be invested on a win single at SP on the remaining runner. For the purposes of settlement, a permutation is considered as a series of straight tricasts. Tricasts will be settled in accordance with the official computer return.
If fewer than 3 finish in a race, a dividend will be declared on those that finish. We are authorised by Totepool to accept bets for settlement at Totalisator odds. We do not accept bets on unnamed favourites at Tote odds except in bets such as the Jackpot and Placepot.

If a Scoop6 is taken in error, and not fed into the Tote Direct pool it will be settled as an each-way accumulator at starting price odds. A Tote Jackpot taken outside the pool will be settled as a win accumulator at starting price odds.

If accepted in error related bet rules will apply. A fixed odds bet is available at selected Horse Race meetings using a points system based on the finishing position of favourites in all races at that meeting excluding charity races and Arab races.

If the favourite is withdrawn then 10 points are awarded for that race. If there are joint or co favourites then the selection will be the one with the lowest race card number.

If a trap number has been taken then the bet will be settled on the trap regardless of whether or not a reserve is running and regardless of which trap the reserve runs from.

Where two meetings are held at the same track on one day, the particular meeting for which the bet is intended must be clearly shown. When it is not indicated, the bet will be deemed to be for the first meeting, after time of acceptance, at which all the selections have still to run.
In such cases, where there are two meetings and one of them is nominated, the bet will be on the next race at that meeting. A bet is not incorrectly timed where the race time written corresponds exactly to the time of a race already resolved.
Such a bet is void. If two meetings are on schedule and the bet is accepted in time for both, stakes will be equally distributed to cover each meeting individually. When two meetings are scheduled, the stakes will be equally divided to cover each of them individually. However, if race times given correspond to only one meeting, the bets will stand for that meeting.

The lower the house edge, the better your odds. The favourite is the horse considered most likely to win the race based on who has the shortest odds. If a horse is in the frame it means they have finished in one of the top four places. The reason this is so important is that many markets allow you to bet on more than just the winners of a race.
However, we would advise that there are no sure things in the world of gambling. There is also a form guide, which provides information in this regard. This is another slang term for the state of the ground , for example, whether the ground is firm or soft. Both the characteristics of the racetrack and the weather can significantly affect a race. This is when a horse is considered very unlikely to win. It would generally have one of, if not the, longest odds of all racers.
This is another easy-to-understand slang term, it means you are only backing your horse to win the race. In some races, the result is so close that photographic evidence is used to determine a winner, hence, a photo finish. A return is the amount of money you receive for a bet , meaning both winnings and stake.
It means that a bookmaker has decided to reduce the odds of one market due to a large number of bets being placed in one direction. Put simply, tote is a form of pool betting where your winnings are calculated by the amount you have entered in the pool alongside the number of winners. It is exceedingly popular in British horse racing. To continue our horse racing betting explained guide, we have listed the different types of races out there so you can get a full picture of the diversity horse racing can offer.
Flat races traditionally take place during the summer and are run over distances between 5 furlongs and 2 and a bit miles on courses without obstacles. As the name would suggest, they are run on flat, level ground. They are a test of speed, stamina, and skill. The lack of obstacles means that many consider this to be the purest form of horse racing.
National Hunt can also be referred to as jump racing and traditionally takes place during the Autumn, Winter and Spring months, culminating in or around The Grand National which is usually held on the first Saturday in April. A unique form of racing, the most striking visual distinction is that the horse also has to pull a sulky alongside their weight and a jockey.
But even more unusual is that the goal is not to go as fast as possible, but instead to maintain a pace without breaking stride. It is an incredibly intense, disciplined, and strategic form of this sport.
So distinct is Harness Racing that some of our horse racing betting explained advice does not apply. But that just shows just how versatile a sport horse racing is. Almost the polar opposite of our previous pick, quarter horse racing is all about speed.
This can be thought of as the horse racing equivalent of a sprint, taking place in a quarter of a mile or less. To give you an idea of just how fast these races can be, the world record is held by Winning Brew, who completed a quarter of a mile in Once again, we go from one extreme to another. As the name would suggest, Endurance Races take place over much larger tracks. The Mongol Derby, for instance, takes place over an eye-watering kilometres.
To put that in perspective, It is around times the length of a quarter horse race. If that sounds impossible, do note that they must change horses every 40 kilometres. The race lasts ten days. This is an extreme example, but it is still common for an endurance race to last 12 hours and go over miles. An astounding test of willpower as well as ability. The speed at which a horse can gallop is affected by the amount of weight it carries. Handicap weights are calculated based on the official ratings published by the British Horse Racing Authority and are expressed in imperial pounds.
Horse ratings represent a horse's level of ability in relation to the weight carried and are expressed in pounds lb. The bigger the number assigned to a horse, the more capable it is considered to be. For example, a horse with a rating of would carry a total weight including jockey, saddle and irons of pounds 10stn. In both Flat and National Hunt racing, there are a series of classifications that are designed to help indicate the prestige, prize money and quality of the race. Both are split into classes from Group 1 — Races of major international importance.
Group 2 — Major international races but of slightly less importance than Group 1 races. Group 3 — Important domestic races. Listed Races — Just below group races. Grade 1 — The best championship races where the weight a horse carries is determined by age and sex. Grade 2 — The weight a horse carries is determined by age and sex but they are also made to carry more for any races they may have previously run. Listed Races — Just below graded races.
After Class 1 races, we then have Class 2 through to 7 which apply to both Flat and National Hunt Racing and are based on a horses handicap rating as follows:. Class 2 — Heritage Handicaps, Handicap rating of , and Class 3 — Handicap rating of and Class 4 — Handicap rating of and Class 5 — Handicap rating of and Class 6 — Handicap rating of and Class 7 — Handicap rating of Before placing your horse racing bets, you need to familiarise yourself with odds.
We'll explain the basics below but for a comprehensive explanation you can read our ultimate guide to understanding how betting odds work. Once you have an understanding of horse racing, the next natural step is to learn is how to read racing form cards. Racingpost cards, for instance, are a good place to start. A horse racing form card, or race card, has a deliberate structure and gives you information about each race.
Being able to read a horse racing form card is, understandably, very important if you want to be successful. Below we explain the different aspects of the card along with other factors you should consider before placing your bets.
You can use the image below of a fairly standard online UK racecard as reference. These numbers are always displayed on a racecard in order of the amount of weight the horse is carrying. The smaller number to the right of the horses number represents the draw that the horse has got in the stalls.
The lower the number, the closer the horse will be to the rails which can be an advantage on certain tracks and distances. Below the horses NO. Form runs from left to right, with the oldest races on the left and the most recent on the right. The second column displays the name of the horse along with the shirt known as silks that the jockey will wear. You will also see a number which shows how many days it was since the horse last ran and some abbreviations. This is the amount of weight the horse will carry including the jockey and the saddle as decreed by the conditions of the race.
You may also see some more abbreviations depending on whether the horse is wearing or using any equipment. This shows both the name of the jockey and the trainer of the horse. If a jockey has a number in brackets to the side of his name then it means he is an apprentice jockey and is claiming a weight allowance. The table below features basic going descriptions along with their abbreviations that you may come across.
If you have never placed a bet on horse racing before, especially if you have never placed a bet online before, then the process may seem intimidating.

Hopefully, you have now got a sense of what horse racing is about, and you are ready to approach these markets with confidence thanks to our horse racing guide. But to do so, you will need to know what you can bet on. Here, we are going to break down the two main categorisations of horse racing bets alongside the actual markets.
These are thus called because they are the most straightforward option here. That makes them perfect for those of you who are just learning the ropes. Here are some examples of horse racing straight bets. To Win Bet — Exactly what it sounds like, back your preferred horse to win the race.
They win, you win. Place Bet — Increase your chance of winning with a place bet. Here you win if your selected horse finishes in first or second place. Show Bet — Same as a place but here your pick can finish up to third place.
Each Way Bet — A slight variation on the place bet here you are essentially putting on two bets , one to win and the other to place, meaning there are different pay-outs for each result. Also known as exotic bets, system bets are a great deal more complicated than their straight bet equivalents. They are, as the name suggests, a systemic, strategic approach requiring a wide number of different bets.
Because they are so convoluted and because the number of bets involved often means they require high stakes , they can seem intimidating. However, when you break them down, they are quite easy to understand once you get used to the concept. With that in mind, check out some of the most popular system bets out there. There are a range of different wagers you can place when it comes to horse racing.
Below we'll explain each in detail. The UK is one of the best places in the world to bet on horse racing. Check out our detailed sports events calendar to find out when each race takes place.
