AIM OF THE BET
To select the winning horse in each of 2 specific races at the same meeting as nominated by Tote.
POOL DEDUCTION RATE
UK Tote pools 20% (The net pool is therefore 80% of the gross pool).
CALCULATION OF DIVIDENDS
The total of the funds invested plus any funds brought forward form the gross pool. If the gross pool is guaranteed to a particular amount, then this amount forms the gross pool unless the total of the funds invested plus any funds brought forward is greater than the guarantee.
The net pool is divided by the total winning stakes to obtain a calculated dividend. The calculated dividend is then rounded down to the next 10 pence to obtain the payable dividend declared to a £1 stake. In any event, the minimum totedouble dividend will be £1.10.
Holders of winning tickets are then paid in proportion to their stakes.
If the pool is not fully won, i.e. there is less than £1 of winning tickets in the pool, then the net pool is the calculated dividend. In accordance with the rules above, this is then rounded down to the next 10 pence to obtain the payable dividend to a £1 stake. The balance of the gross pool which has not been won will be carried forward to another totedouble as decided by Tote. The deduction from any pool is only taken at the time the funds are won, so this is added back to the net rollover to be included within a subsequent pool.
If there are no winning tickets in the pool, then the entire gross pool will be carried forward to the next totedouble pool, unless otherwise stated.
Note that any guarantee is disregarded for the purposes of carryforwards.
WALKOVERS/VOID/ABANDONED RACES/MEETINGS
If either leg of the totedouble is a walkover, or is void, or is abandoned, or there is no official result declared for any reason, and is not reran on the same day, then the pool will be settled on the remaining leg, i.e. every selection in that leg is deemed to have been successful, provided the other leg of the bet takes place.
If neither of the legs of the totedouble take place, the pool will be declared void and all stakes refunded.
Provided at least one leg takes place, a dividend will be declared, subject to Tote rules.
MULTIPLE SELECTIONS, BANKERS & PERMUTATIONS
Permutations are permitted. To calculate the number of permutations, customers should multiply together the number of selections in each leg.
INSUFFICIENT FINISHERS
If in either leg the official result is that there are no finishers, the pool will be settled on the remaining leg, i.e. every selection is deemed to have been successful.
DEAD HEATS
In the event of a deadheat for first place in either leg of the bet, all such deadheating horses are considered to be full winners in that race.
