TAB Place payouts for the first six past the post in the recent Vodacom Durban July proved such a big hit with horseplayers that TAB will also pay Place dividends for the first six finishers in this Saturday’s Canon Gold Cup at Greyville.
Paying six places in the Durban July revitalised Place betting on the race with the Place pool accomplishing a massive 30 percent increase on 2010.\

“We had a hugely positive response to the first-six Place payouts in the Durban July, both in terms of the size of the pool and comments from selected customers we spoke to afterwards,” said Phumelela Betting Executive Vee Moodley. “So we are going to stick to the same formula in the Gold Cup and will drop the takeout rate again to ensure there’s good value to be had.”
And as with the Durban July, TAB customers can take an All To Come on any race meeting from today Monday 25 July until Friday 29 July (excluding France, Italy, Macau, Sweden and Turkey) and make the last selection either a Win or Place bet on a horse of their choice in the Gold Cup.
For example, a TAB customer can take an All To Come comprising a Win bet on Race 3 and a Place bet on Race 5 at the Vaal tomorrow (Tuesday 26 July) with the third and final selection being a Win or Place bet on a runner in the Gold Cup.
The All To Come bet form must be filled out in the normal way except the player must utilise the FUTURE OPTION 1 section at the bottom of the form to indicate your choice in the Gold Cup and whether a Win or Place bet is being selected.
TAB customers must note that the FUTURE OPTION 1 for the Gold Cup must only be used for All To Come bets into the race from Monday to Friday this week. On the day of the race the All To Come betting form must be completed as for a normal race meeting and the FUTURE OPTION 1 must not be used.
