It is possible to win big from a small stake at Glorious Goodwood by putting a bet on a Placepot with the Tote.
You must choose a minimum of one horse from the first six races at the meeting, and if they all place you win your bet!
Below you can find our selections for Day 2 of the Glorious Goodwood Festival:
Race 1 – 1.10 British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies’ Handicap (2) – 1m 1f 197y (RTV)
David Menuisier has saddled four winners from his last five runners and DEAN STREET DOLL can add to the trainers tally in the opener. Ryan Moore has been booked for the ride and this horse has some smart form in the book, finishing 5th in the Irish 1000 Guineas when trained across the water. She ran a brilliant race at Royal Ascot when drawn on the wrong side of the track and is lurking off a dangerous mark.
Race 2 – 1.45 Unibet You’Re On Goodwood Handicap (2) – 2m 4f 134y (ITV)
Mark Johnston farms the Goodwood handicaps on an annual basis and ROCHESTER HOUSE fits the bill as one who can go on to land this race in the hands of Silvestre De Sousa. He has run three solid races off this mark of late and when last seen finished a gallant 5th in the Marsh Cup at Newbury. There should be more to come.
Race 3 – 2.15 Unibet 3 Boosts A Day Handicap (2) – 1m 3f 218y (ITV)
CARLOS FELIX, who is owned by Darren Yates, was an expensive €700,000 purchase and the recent step up in distance brought out much-improved form when scoring at Ascot in impressive fashion 18 days ago. This is a tougher race but the manner of that win was pretty eye-catching so there should be more to come over this trip.
Race 4 – 2.45 Markel Insurance Molecomb Stakes (Group 3) – 5f (ITV)
SIGNIFICANTLY is fast becoming a frustrating horse, now a bridesmaid three times from his three starts to date. However, he is worth another go and will be much better suited to a sharper track over the downhill 5f given his high cruising speed. This looks a weak enough race for the level and he should take some pegging back at the business end.
Race 5 – 3.15 Qatar Sussex Stakes (Group 1) – 1m (ITV)
Juddmonte Farms homebred SISKIN gave trainer Ger Lyons and jockey Colin Keane a day to remember as the trio teamed up to land a first classic-race success when scoring in the Irish 2000 Guineas. He receives 8lb from the four-year-olds which is massive and that should be a big enough allowance to see him shrug off Mohaather and Circus Maximus.
Race 6 – 3.45 British Stallion Studs Alice Keppel EBF Fillies’ Conditions Stakes (2) – 5f (ITV)
Godolphin don’t send too many runners to the Glorious meeting but when they do they usually mean business and MISS JINGLES can go on to taste success for the second time in her career here. She improved massively from first to second run when running out a nice winner at Sandown over a week ago, the drop back to 5f working the oracle.

What is a Placepot and how does it work?
The Tote Placepot is a pool bet where a punter has to pick out a horse in each of the first six races at particular meeting and in order to be successful, all six runners must place.
Everything runs through the Tote pool betting operation. The size of the pool is determined by how many people play so naturally the more money bet on the Placepot the larger the pool will be.
That pool is divided among the winner so the more winners there are the smaller the winning dividend will be.

- Go to the Multibets page, click Tote Placepot and select your meeting.
- You will be directed to the racecard for the first leg of the day. Add your selections to that leg and continue until you have at least one horse in all six races.
- If you are happy with your selections, add your stake to the betslip and click “place bet”.
- Remember, your stake will be multiplied by the number of lines in your Placepot.
When you are putting on your Tote Placepot bet, you can choose how brave or safe you would like to be. You can choose one horse in each race or you can choose multiple in a race. There selections are referred to as ‘lines’ in Placepot terminology.
If you do decide to add multiple lines in each race, this of course will increase your chances of picking a horse that will place. However, the more lines you place the higher the stake will be.
In order to calculate how many lines in total you have, multiply the number of lines in race one by the number of lines in race two by the number of lines in race three and so on until you get to race six.
How much does a Placepot cost?
The minimum stake per line is generally 10p. The minimum total stake is £1 so you will need a minimum of 10 lines at 10p to meet minimum requirements.
For example, if you bet £1 lines on a 36-line Tote Placepot, the total stake would amount to £36.
How are the Tote Placepot places determined?
The place rules are the same across the industry and are as follows:
- 1-4 runners: Win Only
- 5-7 runners: 2 Places
- 8+ runners: 3 Places
- Handicap 12-15 runners: 3 Places
- Handicap 16+ runners: 4 Places
How is the Tote Placepot prize pool worked out and shared?
Tote have to make their money somehow so 27% is taken out of the total pool and then the remaining 73% will be divided among the winners of the Placepot.
For example, if the pool is £200,000, the amount taken out of the pool will be £54,000. This means £146,000 will be split among the winners and each winner may have a different return based on how many lines they have.
The best payouts tend to be on days where favourites struggle to reach the frame as favourites are very popular choices for Placepot bettors.
How to work out Tote Placepot winnings
At the end of a meeting, Tote will publish the dividend which will show what a punter would win in return for a £1 staked winning bet. Your return will be determined by the amount you stake per line and also by how many of your lines were successful.
You can work this out by multiplying the amount of winning lines in each leg together to get your total winning lines.
To then work out how much you have won, simply multiply your stake per line by the amount of winning lines you have.
If the Placepot has a dividend of £1,000 to a £1 stake and you have three winning 20p lines then you have a total of 60p going on the dividend so you win £600.
If the Placepot pays £150 to a £1 stake and you have three winning £1 lines, your total of £3 of winning bets means you win £450.
What happens if one of your legs is a non-runner?
If one of your runners turns out to be a non-runner, it will automatically go on the SP (Starting price) favourite. If there are joint or co-favourites, the lowest racecard number will count.
