Just when we thought there could be nothing left to try us, Tattsbet have started the DOUBLE TRIO bet.

It's operating on the last two at Sunshine Coast today.

I doubt there'll be enough in the pool to cover the expected/deserved divvy.

Let's see how things go.

I guess if we have 5 x 5, that's 5C3 squared.  shy

Not a lot of interest from punters.

$1800 in the pool and it paid $1k. Sad

Tatts ran this again yesterday.

The divvy was $10.5k.  unsure

Just a double trio, Zoro.

No of trio combos in first leg by no in second leg.

N horses = n x (n-1) x (n-2) / !3

So for 5, it's 5x4x3 / 6 = 10

For 6, it's 6x5x4 /6 = 20

And so on....

No, a trio is first 3 in any order.

Isn't that a boxed trifecta?

There are 6 trios in a boxed trifecta (of 3).

I would have said one trio in a trifecta box of 3 runners (6 trifecta combinations)

So to take 4 runners in each leg of the T2 for 100% would cost you $16, and as long as the placegetters came from your 4 picks in each leg you would collect.

What I mean is that we can take 6 trios for the cost of 1 boxed trifecta.

Yep the difference between a trifecta and a trio is the same as the difference between an exacta and a quinella.
The trio just involves selecting the first 3 to pass the post, in any order, instead of the first 2 for a quinella.

For the trio you nominate 3 horses to finish in the first 3 in any order.
This costs $1 for 100% of the dividend.

If you box 4 horses in the trio, there are four different combinations of 3 horses available so the trio bet will cost you $4 for 100% of the dividend.

To win the new "double trio" you have to correctly nominate the first 3 past the post in each of 2 nominated races.
If you successfully nominate the winning combination in 1 race but not the other you get zero; you have to nominate the correct combination in both races to get a collect.

To calculate the cost of a "double trio" you multiply the number of different combinations in your first leg by the number of different combinations in your 2nd leg.

For example, if you take 3 horses in the first leg, there is only 1 combination.
If you take 4 horse in your 2nd leg there are 4 different combinations of 3 horses in that leg.
1x4=4, your investment is $4 for 100%.

If you took 4 horses in each leg the cost would be 4x4=16 combinations; $16 for 100%.
You can take any ticket for as little as 1%.
