At Newcastle on 8/2/18 in the 5th race in the placepot(4.20) there was a withdrawal, horse would not enter the stalls, so the race was reduced in number from 5 to 4,from 2 selections to 1 for the p/p.

My selection came 2nd so I assume that I had lost, as my 6th selection lost.

What is the Tote position as nothing would be lost as there would be more winners taken from the pool.

Answer: The Tote rules regarding non runners state:

Any bets placed on a non-runner will be replaced by the Starting Price favourite.

Where there are joint favourites, the joint favourite with the lowest racecard number will be taken.

If the favourite is withdrawn before coming under Starters Orders and too late for a new favourite to be made, the horse returned at the next shortest price will be taken.

Where two or more horses are returned at the next shortest price, the one with the lowest racecard number will be taken.

If no Starting Price is returned the first actual runner quoted in the Racing Post betting forecast will be taken.

Should the Racing Post not publish a betting forecast, settlement will be made in line with Tote Racecourse Cash Rules.
