Betting Beginners Guide

If you are a beginner to racing here is a helpful guide about the different types of bets available to you.

THE SINGLE

This is the most common type of bet consisting of a single wager on a horse, dog or event. The single bet can be Win, Each Way or Win and Place.

Win single – £10 win Horse A – £10 staked

Each Way (E/W) –£10 E/W Horse A – £20 staked.

Effectively 2 bets, £10 Horse A to win and £10 Horse A to be placed in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th place depending on the type of race. (See below. Each Way Terms Explained).

Win and Place – £10 win Horse A / £5 place Horse A – £15 staked.

Similar to E/W bet with the exception that the place part of the bet could be staked at less than the win part of the bet. The place stake can never be greater than the win stake.

DOUBLE

Wager on 2 horses, dogs or events with a single stake.

Win Double – £10 double Horse A and Horse B – £10 staked.

If Horse A wins, the winnings plus the £10 stake, are put on to Horse B to win. If either horse loses, the bet is a loser. Again, if you are backing E/W the stake is doubled i.e. £20 staked

TREBLE

Wager on 3 horses, dogs or events with a single stake. Win Treble – £10 treble Horses A, B, C. As with the double the accumulated winnings from each horse are all put onto the next horse. If any one horse loses, the bet is a loser.

ACCUMULATOR

Single stake wager consisting of 4 or more selections where the stake plus winnings from each selection is put onto the next selection each time a winner is selected. If any selection loses, the bet is a loser. (Accumulators are also known as fourfolds, fivefolds, sixfolds, etc., depending on the amount of selections)

EACH WAY TERMS EXPLAINED

2-4 runners No Place Betting 5-7 runners 1st and 2nd one quarter the odds 8+ runners 1st, 2nd and 3rd one fifth odds 12-15 runners (handicaps) 1st, 2nd and 3rd one quarter odds 16 + runners (handicaps) 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th one quarter odds For certain popular race meetings bookmakers may offer better terms (e.g. 1/4 the odds on all races), these offers will be advertised in the national press. It is also worth remembering that if the favourite in a given race is returned at odds on (e.g. 4/6, 1/2 etc), the place odds for that race will be amended one place, so that 1/4 becomes 1/5 the odds and 1/5 becomes 1/6 the odds.

MULTIPLE/SPECIALITY BETS

There are a variety of multiple and speciality bets available from most bookmakers, that enable you to cover various combinations of singles, doubles, trebles and accumulators in one bet. The following are descriptions of the most popular bets.

PATENT

Three selections covering 7 bets: 3 singles/ 3 doubles/ 1 treble. 1 winner ensures a return.

YANKEE

Four selections covering 11 bets: 6 doubles/ 4 trebles/ 1 accumulator 2 winners are required for a return.

SUPER YANKEE/CANADIAN

LUCKY 31

Five selections covering 31 bets: 5 singles/ 10 doubles/ 10 trebles/ 5 fourfolds/ 1 accumulator. 1 winner ensures a return.

Albion Racing a look back in time

26/12/11: Kauto Star created history with a fifth King George VI Chase victory in a perfect performance at Kempton Park. The ever-popular 11-year-old, ridden by Ruby Walsh, won the race on four successive occasions from 2006 before being beaten by Long Run last season. But the two-time Cheltenham Gold Cup champion gained revenge on this year’s Gold Cup winner in spectacular style. The 3-1 chance jumped superbly to finish a length and a quarter ahead of the evens favourite Long Run. He quickened the pace heading down the back straight and his jumping kept him at the head of affairs as Long Run had some less than comfortable moments with his jumping under Sam Waley-Cohen. Although Long Run stayed on strongly in the home straight, he was unable to catch up on the winner.

The Great DenmanOwner Paul Barber hailed Denman as “one of the greats” after injury forced connections to call time on the legendary staying chaser’s career. The Paul Nicholls-trained 11-year-old was embarking upon what was likely to be his final campaign, which was due to begin in the Lexus Chase, a race he won four years ago, at Leopardstown on December 28 2011. But once a tendon injury was discovered after a routine piece of work earlier this week, Barber and Nicholls had no hesitation in retiring the 2008 Cheltenham Gold Cup and dual Hennessy Gold Cup winner.

FRANKEL

Unbeaten Frankel cruised to his ninth successive victory as he landed the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on the inaugural British Champions Day at Ascot. The three-year-old colt, trained by Sir Henry Cecil and ridden by Tom Queally, was a comfortable winner on the country’s richest ever raceday. Frankel took up the running from pacemaker Bullet Train approaching the final furlong and sauntered clear to win by four lengths from Excelebration, with Immortal Verse a further three and a half lengths back in third.

IMPERIAL CALL OUT FOR SEASON

Imperial Commander has been ruled out for the season after suffering a tendon injury. The 2010 Cheltenham Gold Cup hero was last seen pulling up in the Prestbury Park blue riband after suffering a broken blood vessel, but had been under going a pre-training regime at Mount Top Stud in Ireland. The 10-year-old was due to return to trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies in the near future but now looks set for an extended holiday after a tear was found in a foreleg tendon following light exercise earlier this week. Twiston-Davies said: “I’d imagine we won’t see him back until next year now, but I would hope he will return. “I haven’t seen it myself but the injury sounds very slight and he should be fine for next season.”

POUR MOI

The French-trained Pour Moi won a thrilling 2011 Epsom Derby as the Queen was denied a first victory in the race with her horse Carlton House third behind runner-up Treasure Beach. Derby debutant Mickael Barzalona, 19, stood up and saluted the crowd as he passed the winning line in the dying strides to triumph by a head on the 4-1 second favourite, trained by Andre Fabre. He just denied Treasure Beach in a photo finish with Carlton House three quarters of a length behind as a crowd of 100,000 roared the leaders on in a tight finale.

KAUTO STAR

Dec 2009 – Kauto Star became the first horse to claim a record four consecutive victories in the King George VI Chase.  The 8-13 favourite was never challenged. Ruby Walsh safely guided the dual Cheltenham Gold Cup hero over the last three fences for a great win. Madison du Berlais edged out Barbers Shop in a race for second. The triumph for Kauto Star sees him eclipse the achievements of Desert Orchid, who won Christmas showpiece 4 times in 5 years.

TONY MCCOY 10/04/10: Tony McCoy ended his Grand National jinx in superb style as he claimed victory at the 15th attempt on board the 10-1 Don’t Push It.  He jumped the last with Black Apalachi but pulled away to give Jonjo O’Neill and JP McManus their first wins. Black Apalachi (14-1) was five lengths behind, ahead of State of Play (16-1). Joint favourite Big Fella Thanks finished 4th. McCoy, the 14-time champion jockey, has ridden more than 3,000 winners, but Grand National victory had remained frustratingly elusive before Saturday.

SEA THE STARS

October 2009……….Sea The Stars the first horse in history to win the 2000 Guineas, The Derby, Juddmonte, The Eclipse and the Arc in the same season has been retired. The 3 year old was beaten once in 9 starts and that was on his debut. He amassed nearly £4.5million in prize money. His performance sparked comparisons with the likes of Dancing Brave, Mill Reef and Sea Bird.

SILVER BIRCH

The biggest win for MEMBERS came in the 2007 Grand National when Silver Birch won at odds of 33/1. Touted up weeks before at 60/1 + and all rates down this was the best bet of the season.
