Jackpot bets take place daily at one selected meeting (except Saturday – see Scoop 6). The aim is to select the winners of all 6 Jackpot races at the Jackpot meeting. The Jackpot races are always races 1 – 6 unless otherwise stated.
Bets must be placed before the first race and dividends are declared after the last Jackpot race.
Stakes: Stake line entries are accepted with a minimum stake of £1, rising thereafter in multiples of 10p. Permutation entries are accepted with a minimum stake of 50p, rising thereafter in multiples of 10p, providing a minimum total of £2 is staked.
Horses can be selected by racecard number, horse name or un-named favourite. Should the racecard number of an overnight declared runner be allocated to a reserve horse, the reserve horse(s) will be re-numbered sequentially in line with Tote Racecourse Cash Rules.
Should a Jackpot race become a walkover or a specified race is not run or is declared void, the pool(s) will operate on the remaining Jackpot races. In this event total stakes on permutation entries are applied in full to the remaining races.
Where a selection becomes a non-runner it will be replaced by the Starting Price favourite.
Where there are joint favourites, the joint favourite with the lowest racecard number will be taken. Should the favourite be withdrawn before coming under Starters Orders and too late for a new favourite to be made, the horse returned at the next shortest price will be taken. Where two or more horses are returned at the next shortest price, the one with the lowest racecard number will be taken. If no Starting Price is returned the first actual runner quoted in the Racing Post betting forecast will be taken. Should the Racing Post not publish a betting forecast, settlement will be made in line with Tote Racecourse Cash Rules. In the event of a Jackpot pool being cancelled bets for the pool concerned will be void.
