Markets: Winning Distances

Last Updated: Nov 16, 2015 11:44PM CET
Winning Distances markets relate to the total winning margins (distance between first and second placed runners) of each race at a particular meeting. For races won by less than half a length, the following is awarded:
Nose 0.05 lengths
Short head 0.1 lengths
Head 0.2 lengths
Neck 0.3 lengths

The maximum winning distance awarded for a National Hunt race is 30 lengths (including National Hunt Flat races). The maximum winning distance awarded for a flat race is 12 lengths. In the event of a walkover, the 5 lengths will be awarded for a Flat race and 12 lengths for a National Hunt race.

If a meeting has one or two races abandoned or declared void, then bets will be settled with a default distance used for each abandoned or void race: 2 lengths for a Flat race and 10 lengths for a National Hunt race. If more than two races are abandoned or void, then all bets will be void, unless a winning market has already been established.

Any runner subsequently disqualified for taking the wrong course or carrying an incorrect weight will be ignored when the winning distance is calculated. The winning distance in such a race will be settled on the officially declared distance between the first two horses past the post that have followed the correct course and carried the correct weight.

This only includes races on the regular card, it does not include charity races or any other race not run under the Rules of Racing.
