What to look out for in the TTF this Flat Season

Smart Pick Auto-Fill Algorithm:

  • Smart pick auto-fill algorithm intelligently designed to select the best horses for your stable
  • Whether you just want the algo to pick 1, 2, or up to all 10 horses, it will pick a balanced stable of horses optimised to score the most points across the season
  • Using historical data and TTF performance, the algorithm has been fine-tuned to select the optimum balance of stable. This includes targeting bonus races, selecting “bankers” that could sink you if leaving them out, and picking wildcard horses that can make the all-important difference

More information on horses to help your selection:

  • See how popular each horse is: Horse list can be sorted by “percentage picked” highlighting the percentage of stables with that horse in
  • As usual see the Racing Post verdict on each horse, sort by bonus races, expected distance, RPR, and race types to get all the info you need to pick the perfect 10 horses

How does Ten to Follow work?

  • Racing Post and Tote compile a list of over 500 horses, from which players will pick a stable of ten horses to follow for each stable they enter.
  • Points are awarded to horses for winning and placing in their races throughout the season. The better the grade of race, the more points on offer.
  • There will be 23 “Bonus” races across the season, finishing at Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday 21st October 2023.
  • Each paid entry costs £5 (or €5.50 if playing in Ireland).
  • The paid entry prize pool is determined by the total entries and prize structure as set out in the terms and conditions with a minimum of 60% of the total net prize pool going to the winning stable and money down to 10th place.
  • A 10% commission is taken by the Tote to cover costs of running the game, with the remaining net pool redistributed in prizes.
  • There is a free to play competition (maximum one entry per person) where people can play for tote credit prizes. Bonus races and Scoring
  • Regular Points:
    Group 1 win
    25 points, Group 2 win 20 points, Group 3 win 15 points, Listed win 12 points,
    Any other race win - 10 points.
  • Points will be awarded for all races in UK and Ireland, Group/Graded races only in France, as well as Group/Grade 1s only in other countries (eg: USA, Germany etc)
  • Points will also be awarded from returns of a £1 each-way bet on the Tote in each race a horse runs in. Example: £1 win at 5.50 + £1 place at 1.20 = 6.70 points awarded.
