How to Bet

Putting on a bet at the races is all part of the experience and we challenge anyone to not scream with frustration or delight as their horse approaches the winning line!

You can put as little as £2 on a horse and to help you chose a horse our raceday programme will give you tips for picking your fancy and details on how to read the form. However, you may have as much luck picking the horse because you like its name or you like the colour of the jockeys silks.

There are 2 ways to bet – either with the tote or with the ‘bookies’ that can be found in front of the viewing grandstands.


Follow the flag…


If you are new to betting with the ‘bookies’ at the ringside try to look out for the Follow the Flag logo, which is our on course customer charter making sure you are beinglooked after and offering you the best terms in betting.
