To win an Any2, you must select two runners that are placed firstsecond or third in any order.

An Any2 bet is available on every race at every meeting where there are eight (8) or more runners. If there are Late Scratchings, and the number of actual starters is reduced to 7, an Any2 pool will still operate on that race. However if there are further Late Scratchings, and the field is reduced to 6 or less actual starters, then the Any2 pool will be abandoned and all monies refunded.

With an Any2 you can specify the Maximum Spend you wish to make. The minimum investment per combination is 1% and the Maximum Spend per ticket must be in multiples of a $1. The minimum Spend is $3 unless your investment per combination is 100%. Dividends are calculated and declared on a $1 basis. For further details, see the Fractional Betting page.

There are four ways to take an Any2 bet:


For a Standard Any2, just choose two of the first three placegetters past the post, in any order. As long as your two selections finish first, second or third, you collect the Any2 dividend.


With a Box Any2 you can choose as many runners as you like, providing two of your selections finish first, second or third, in any order. The more runners you 'Box' in a Any2 the more combinations you get. For example, if you 'Box' four (4) runners, say numbers 1,2,3 and 4, you get six (6) combinations: 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 2-3, 2-4 and 3-4. Four (4) runners 'Boxed' in a Any2 will cost $6 for a $1 investment.


If you feel there's a 'sure thing' in a race that looks certain to run 1st, 2nd or 3rd, then a Banker Any2 is a perfect type of bet. Your 'Banker' would be the 'sure thing' and you can group it with any number of other runners in the race. Providing your 'Banker' runs 1st, 2nd or 3rd and one of your other selections finishes 1st, 2nd or 3rd with your 'Banker', you win the Any2. The more 'other' selections you take, the more combinations you get. For example, if you took a 'Banker' with six (6) other runners you would get six (6) combinations. This bet would cost $6 for a $1 investment on each combination.


A Multiple Any2 allows you take as many runners as you like for each placing. For example, you can take three (3) runners for first and five (5) runners for second. Provided that one of your runners selected in the first leg places either first, second or third, and one of your runners selected for the second leg fills any of the other two placings (third, second or first), then you win the Any2.


If one of your runners is declared a 'non-runner' or is scratched after you have placed your bet, your money will be refunded on every combination that includes the scratched runner.
