The First Four bet requires you to select the First Four finishers in correct order.

There are four different types of First Four betting – Straight, Box, Standout and Multiple First Four’s.

 Straight First Four Requires you to select the placing’s of the first 4 runners in the correct order.

 A Box First 4 bet allows your selections to finish first, second, third and fourth in ANY order.

Boxing four selections gives you 24 combinations with which you can win a First four.

 With a Standout First Four, One runner is selected to finish 1st (ie a standout)

And is coupled with three or more runners to finish second, third and fourth.

 A multiple First four is where two or more runners are selected to finish 1st with a number of other runners to finish 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
