Cox Plate Bet Types: Ways you can bet on the 2017 Cox Plate

  • What kind of bets can you place on the Cox Plate?

Cox Plate

Most punters like a flutter on the Cox Plate. But did you know there are many different ways to bet on the race than simply backing a horse to win?

Whether you're staking a couple bucks on the race because you like a name or the colour of the jockey silks, or you've got a tip for the horse that will win at Moonee Valley, you don't have to place your hard-earned on just to be first past the post.

You could turn a small amount into a big win by picking out the Exacta, Trifecta or First4 or add your Cox Plate selection into a multibet across other races.

You can place a variety of horse racing bets on the 2017 Cox Plate. Here is a guide to the different options:

SINGLE: The most common bet. The single bet involves betting on your selection to win, place, or both (each-way). If betting each-way, the stake is doubled as you are betting on your selection to win, and also to place.

QUINELLA: A Quinella bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least three or more runners. To win a Quinella, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in any order. 

EXACTA: An exacta is exactly the same as a quinella. However, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in the correct order. 

TRIFECTA: A Trifecta bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a Trifecta, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placegetters in a given race.

FIRST4: A First4 bet is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a First4, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placegetters in a given race. 

MYSTERY BET: A Mystery Bet takes the guess work out of picking a Trifecta and is generated by the betting agency’s computer. The computer system will randomly select three runners and if they fill the placings you win the Trifecta. 

QUADDIE: A Quaddie bet, or Quadrella bet as it is fully known, is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race meetings. A quaddie is betting on the winners of four nominated races, which are typically the last four races of any meeting, and is a very popular bet. 

MULTIBET: Multibets offer a great way to secure big winning returns on your bets as you combine various bets into one, and are proving to be an extremely popular way to bet. A multibet combines any number of bets from two to 25 into one single bet and dramatically increases the odds. 

PATENT BET: A Patent bet is similar to a three-leg multibet but is made up of seven separate bets: three singles, three doubles and a trio. Where a multibet requires all selections to win for a return, a patent bet will yield a return from just one winner.

ALL-IN BETTING: All-In betting involves a bookmaker offering fixed odds on selected feature races prior to the declaration of the final field. All-In betting on the Melbourne Cup, for example, is available for the better part of 12 months leading into the event. The risk with All-In Betting is that you will not receive your stake back if your horse is scratched before the final field is announced.

The bet types listed above can be placed with a variety of bookmakers including LadbrokesCrownBet and Sportsbet.
