One of Tote’s latest innovations – the World Pool – will be available this weekend for Ascot’s QIPCO King George Day. World Pool gives global bettors access to Tote pools that would usually only be available in the UK and Ireland. This results in huge sums being staked on each race by visitors of the sports betting site site and has proved to be a huge success on previous World Pool days.
We’re entering an incredibly busy period for UK and Irish horse racing. With Glorious Goodwood and the Galway Festival just days away, King George Day at Ascot is the perfect way for bettors to warm up, with top class action throughout the day.
Some bettors at horse racing betting sites might be familiar with World Pool, as it was available on all five days of Royal Ascot. All popular single race bets that have Tote pools available will be available on King George Day this Saturday. World Pool bets can be placed on the following markets: Win, Place, Quinella, Swinger, Exacta and Trifecta. Treble bets will also be accepted as part of World Pool.
The most convenient way to place a World Pool bet is by signing up with Tote via Bookmakers. Once you have opened your new account, placing a World Pool bet is the same as any other bet at a horse racing betting site. Make your selection(s), enter your stake and confirm your bet. If you win, your dividend will be declared after the race and the winnings added to your account balance.
Saturday, July 23rd is the date for the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes, or the King George VI as it’s known for short. The feature race is due at 15:35 (UK time), but it’s a high-quality meeting throughout. Here’s the full schedule for the day:
13:50 – Princess Margaret Keeneland Stakes (Group 3)
14:25 – Longines Valiant Stakes (Group 3)
15:00 – Moet & Chandon International Stakes (Cl2 Handicap)
15:35 – King George VI and Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes (Group 1)
16:10 – Flexjet Pat Eddery Stakes (Listed)
16:45 – Porsche Handicap (Cl2 Handicap)
17:20 – Garrard Handicap (Cl2 Handicap)
One of the many great things about Tote’s World Pool is that it gives bettors from all around the world a chance to get involved. Because your returns are a dividend based on the amount of money staked on a particular selection, there’s a chance many of the domestic bettors won’t know a huge amount the international runners. As such, if you are in the know, you could be duly rewarded with some excellent dividends.
While King George Day doesn’t have the same volume of international runners as Royal Ascot, there are still some raiders who will be looking to make an impact. Peter Schiergen’s Novemba (14:25) and Marcel Weiss’ Torquator Tasso (15:35) are two German runners who will spark up a lot of interest for those getting involved with the World Pool. Despite being relative unknowns to many UK and Irish bettors, they bring some top-class form with them to Ascot and could just reward their backers.
Whether you choose a favourite or an outsider, home favorite or a visiting challenger, you’re sure to get the best value with the World Pool from the Tote. Their Tote+ offer, which adds a 10% bonus to winnings, and Tote Guarantee matching the starting price if that’s greater ensures the best possible value for bettors.
