First 4 – How to play our new (Fecta) Horse Racing pool

First 4

A Finishing Order pool in Horse Racing (also known as a ‘Fecta’) is a bet type where the player must predict a stated number of horses to place in the correct order. For example, a ‘First 4’ pool requires players to select 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in their correct places. We may also offer a First 5 pool from time-to-time.

Here is an example of a ticket in the 2019 National Hunt Chase First 4 at Cheltenham Festival:


In the above picture, the customer is predicting Ballyward to finish 1st, Jerrysback 2nd, Discorama 3rd and Impulsive Star 4th.

It is also possible to pick multiple selections (or outcomes) for each position to increase your chances of winning. Beware of the rising cost of the ticket with the more selections you pick. 

See the below example where the customer has a 12 line ticket (covering 12 different combinations of places 1-4):



As with all of our pools customers can create and join Syndicates into our Fecta pools. Crowdfunding tickets allows players to play bigger tickets (with more lines) that have a higher chance of winning
