What is a Quinella? – how to place a Quinella bet

Greyhounds in action during the Sandown Greyhound midweek meet at Sandown Park

A Quinella bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least three or more runners.

To win a Quinella, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in any order.

There are several ways to place a Quinella bet, with punters being able to pick from a minimum of two runners up to a maximum of the field size.

WHERE TO PLACE A QUINELLA BET

You can place Quinella bets with most bookmakers such as BetEasy, Sportingbet, Bet365, Unibet and Luxbet, while some bookmakers also offer fixed odds Quinella bets.

Here are some Quinella bet options:

BASIC QUINELLA
Placing a Standard Quinella involves choosing the first two placegetters past the post, in any order. 

BOX QUINELLA
A Box Quinella enables punters to combine as many selections as they deem fit to their Quinella bet. As long as two of your selections finish 1st and 2nd you win the Quinella.


BANKER QUINELLA
If you are keen on one runner in a race, then a Banker Quinella may prove more profitable. Simply stand out your 'Banker' for 1st place and choose as many selection as you like for 2nd. As long as your Banker runs 1st or 2nd and any one of your other selections finishes 1st or 2nd with your 'Banker', you win the Quinella. 

MULTIPLE QUINELLA
In a Multiple Quinella, you are able to select as many runners as you like for each placing. For example, you can take five runners for 1st or 2nd, and seven runners to fill the other placing. The more selections taken, the more the total cost for a 100 percent unit.

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