Scoring

Whenever one of your horses wins or places, you will be awarded points determined by the quality of the race - the higher the grade of the race, the higher the points allocated.

Here is a breakdown of how points will be awarded this season:

  • Grade 1 win - 25 points
  • Grade 2 win - 20 points
  • Grade 3 win - 15 points
  • Listed win - 12 points
  • Any other race win - 10 points

Additionally, horses will receive the equivalent points returned to a £1 Win and Place bet on the Tote. For example, a £1 win at 10.00 and £1 place at 2.50 would see an additional 12.50 points awarded.

For races run in the UK and Ireland, the returns will be based on the declared Tote dividend. For races run overseas, the local tote return will be used (as published in the Racing Post).
