Can anyone tell me, if there is a 3 runner race and mine comes second out of the 3, does this still count in a tote placepot? i know in fields with 7 runners or less the first 2 places only count but does this get lower if the field only contains 3 runners? i’ve been round to my local bookmaker only to find one of the staff saying the machine says there is nothing on my slip and it doesn’t help with the member of staff having his first day there. Any help would be great people! Thanks!
There are occasional variations normally involving 4 places counting in some big field non-handicaps, but there are literally only one or two of these each year, and I don’t know whether this has happened recently.
For Irish placepots, all 16+ runner fields have 4 placepot places.
