  • Once the race has finished there will be a replay of the Horses crossing the line followed by a display of the top 3 (or 4) finishers.
  • All bets will be settled at the fractional odds stated
  • We will strive to settle your bet immediately after the event has finished, but please bear in mind there may be a short delay in settlement.
  • After the Result has been shown the introduction of the next race will start. The result of each will be shown on the website for a short of period of time.
  • When a virtual race starts, betting markets will be refreshed to show the next event’s betting options.
