Hi everyone, was just wondering do you ever have a bet on the horses?? We do but only on the big races like the national!!

Well its the Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday so me gonna have a little bet (usually 1-2 eachway)
Havent chose which horse yet, depends on what the jockeys wearing Smile (ladies way of determining how well it will do lol!!)

Is anyone else having a little flutter??

It sounds like you choose your horses the same way that FT chose her first car........
Q) What type of car do you want love?
A) A green one!

There is a mathematical way of reducing your probability of losing, though nothing can ever guarantee a win.
(Basic Rules)
1) If you are betting each way then never bet in a race with less than 8 horses. Races with 4 or less runners the horse has to win, 5, 6 or 7 horses, it has to come first or second, 8 and more it can come in 3rd and you will still get something back.
2) Only bet on Hurdles races...your horse is less likely to fall.
3) Assume a 1 each way bet....that costs you 2. If it wins then you make a profit.
If it comes second then you get a quarter of the odds...example the horse is 4 to 1, you get 1 x a quarter of 4 to 1 which is 1 to 1 or evens. That means that you would get your 2 back.
If it comes third then you get a fifth of the odds, so to get your money back it has to be at least 5 to 1.

So back a horse at 5 to 1 in a 8 horse hurdle race......and statistically, the longer distance races are won by the most favoured horses, e.g. favourites or second favourites, though don't discount that old cart horse that was trained by Chubby Brown jumping over piles of rubbish in the local tip....

Good luck!!! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!
