How to Place a Bet

If you are new to racing and betting, follow these easy steps to enjoy a ‘flutter’ at the races.

1. Look through the Racecard, the Racing Post or any national paper to select which horse you fancy for the win.

2. Decide whether you want to bet ‘To Win’ (the horse has to finish first) or ‘Each Way’ (the horse must be ‘placed’ - finish in the first two, three or four, depending on how many runners there are in the race). ‘Each Way’ is twice the cost, as you are placing one bet on the horse to win and another bet on the horse to be placed.

3. Choose from the three different ways to place a bet at Ascot: at one of our Bet With Ascot outlets, Betting Shops and the Betting Ring - find out more.
