One of the most popular ways to have a flutter at the races, is at the tote, and one of the most popular bets is the place pot.
A place pot is a bet where you have to predict a horse to finish placed in every single race. The first six races of any race meeting.
Unlike any traditional bet that you might have with a bookmaker where there are fixed odds, it's different with the tote placed pot because the dividend of what it will pay is unknown to the end, the more people that play the place pot obviously bigger the pot.
Try and avoid putting favourites into your place pot because of course that's what most people will do, you've got to swim against the tide.
To show what I mean, did you know that the average place pot paid 407 pound for just once pound stake.
