dont know where people get £14.38 from its a £15!, you get a quarter of the odds a place so in this case you would get a quarter of 20/1 which is 5/1, you would then say whats 2.5 x 5 which is £12.50 + your origanal £2.50 stake which you get back on top to make the £15.
if the horse had won you would of got £68.50!

It did'nt win, it come second

You win £12.50 + you get your £2.50 place stake only back total £15 you layed out £5 on the race so your winnings on this bet are £10.From 25yrs in the game this is what you will get back.

where did you get that from :thinking:

20-1 / 4 = 5-1

5 x £2.50 = £12.50 + £2.50 stake = £15.00

number of selections=1

odds=20/1

each way-1/4

result=placed

enter stake=£2.50

winnings=£14.38
