Giving you the opportunity to back anywhere from two to four horses in the same race, this gives you some higher odds due to the lower likelihood of winning.
One of the most popular options is the Quinella, which sees you back two horses to finish in the top two places. A key feature of this is that it doesn’t matter which order the horses finish in, as long as they’re first or second you win.

The Exacta then sees you pick the horses you believe will finish first and second, but for you to win you must get the order correct.
Another keenly used option is the Trifecta. To come out trumps in this category you need to accurately pick the top three in correct order, which is obviously very difficult but it pays highly.
The last selection type on our list is the First Four, which is extremely easy to understand, as it requires you to get the first four runners in order to triumph.
