What is a Reverse
Reverse Forecast is where two selections are chosen in a
race, they are to finish either 1st and 2nd in
either order. Therefore a reverse forecast is two
straight forecast bets and is actually two stakes.
If you didn't understand the top one, then I will explain it
A forecast is a where the gambler tries to pick
the 1st and 2nd horse in a particular race in
the correct order: the gambler quite literally tries to
forecast what will happen.
A reverse forecast, therefore, is selecting the first and
second horses, but in can be in either order - it doesn’t
matter which is first and which is second.
This is not unlike an “Each Way” bet - where there are in
effect two bets placed, one to win and one to place -
similarly, reverse forecast bets cost double the stake, as one
is placing two bets. For example, I think horse A and horse B
will finish first and second, but am not sure what order, so I
place a Reverse Forecast on A and B. I would have the following
Horse A to beat horse B and Horse B to beat Horse A
The Tote used to do a bet called the Dual Forecast, which
was the same as a reverse forecast that carried one price for
either result, however, they switched to the Exacta (another
name for a forecast) a number of years ago. Each result (A
beats B and B beats A) therefore now has a different price -
some people like only to place single exactas.
A reverse forecast on the Tote is therefore called a
