We head to Hereford on Monday for the day’s feature meeting where we’re hoping to win big for a small stake by playing the Tote Placepot at the main Monday feature fixture. Check out our Monday Hereford placepot tips!

To play the Tote Placepot, simply pick one or more horses in each of the first six races to make the frame according to the number of runners in the race.

The beauty of the Tote Placepot is that selections don’t have to win the race; but if they finish in the places in each of the six races then a big slice of the winning pie could be waiting! Our Tote Placepot tips for Monday are below.


2.20 Hereford – Race 1: (3) Imperial Icon, (4) K’Chou Du Pecos AA
2.50 Hereford – Race 2: (1) Sackett, (3) No No Juliet
3.20 Hereford – Race 3: (1) Demachine, (5) Sastruga
3.50 Hereford – Race 4: (5) Ballybreen
4.20 Hereford – Race 5: (4) Scartare, (6) Angel’s Envy
4.50 Hereford – Race 6: (5) The Edgar Wallace

Permutation: 2x2x2x1x2x1 = 16 bets

To work out stakes, simply multiply the number of selections in each race together. Remember though, minimum cost per line is 10p and a minimum of £1 total needs to be staked.

In addition to the Tote Placepot, punters can also bet Tote singles and we’ve picked out a couple of individual runners in our Placepot perm who could post big runs in their respective races.

Bear in mind that The Tote will match the winners’ starting price if it returns bigger than the declared single win dividend so punters are guaranteed to get the best value.

2.20 Hereford – Race 1: 3 places

(3) IMPERIAL ICON – shaped well at Huntingdon on his hurdling debut despite being beaten almost 15 lengths into second. He was booked for third in that race before the leader blundered and he might have needed the experience and outing.

He can do better with that run under his belt and can make his presence felt.

(4) K’CHOU DU PECOS AA – Didn’t show a great deal in four starts for Willie Mullins and has since joined Henry Oliver so could be worth a second look starting out for his new yard.

This isn’t a great race to make his introduction and he probably wouldn’t need to improve too much on his Irish form to take a hand here.

2.50 Hereford – Race 2: 2 places

(1) SACKETT – Won over fences last term at Cartmel and might have needed his reappearance back over hurdles at Chepstow in November. Subsequently found the Sussex National too much of a test but should find this easier and can bounce back with a better effort.

(Bet SACKETT as a win single with The Tote and if the SP is bigger than the Tote win dividend, get paid out at SP!)

(3) NO NO JULIET – Has shaped with some promise in three chase starts, winning at Southwell in December. The Scorpion mare has finished third on her other two starts either side of that success, shaping as if amiss last time.

She’s had a break since that run, and if back to her best has the ability to go close off this mark.

3.20 Hereford – Race 3: 2 places

(1) DEMACHINE – Placed on both starts over hurdles since returning from a short break having shaped with some promise on his debut at Chepstow in November.

The Flemensfirth gelding finished third latest at Warwick and could improve switching to a handicap in a first-time tonguetie where a mark of 120 could underestimate him.

(5) SASTRUGA – Had improved with each run – albeit only moderately – and found only one too strong at Uttoxeter in December.

Subsequently disappointed at Warwick following a short break but given another chance back on a more testing surface with the step up in trip a possible sourde of improvement.

3.50 Hereford – Race 4: 2 places

(5) BALLYBREEN – Has improved markedly since the application of blinkers, winning three of four starts over fences having been disappointing previously.

Evan Williams’ charge has also won over hurdles latest in a change of headgear, sporting a visor to win at Taunton last time. Won readily that day and only 3lbs higher here so can make his mark again despite a slight step up in class.

(Bet BALLYBREEN as a win single with The Tote and if the SP is bigger than the Tote win dividend, get paid out at SP!)

4.20 Hereford – Race 5: 3 places

(4) SCARTARE – Generally consistent sort, but still a maiden after 28 starts in all disciplines.

However he faced a tough ask last time from out of the weights in a stronger race than this and the Trans Island gelding can make his presence felt back down in class.

(6) ANGEL’S ENVY – Showed some fair form over hurdles for Ian Jardine and shaped with promise following six months off switched to fences on debut for Laur Morgan.

Finished then lengths’ third that day to Shougar, but should learn from that experience and is likely to be sharper here. She can improve for that run and this longer trip allied with cheekpieces could help.

4.50 Hereford – Race 6: 2 places

(5) THE EDGAR WALLACE – Has placed in both starts in bumpers to date and is likely to be hard to beat from getting off the mark.

Finished third on debut at Exeter before being beaten just over one length latest behind Adrimel at Doncaster in February. That one ran in the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival and the front pair were well clear of the rest.

He should prove hard to topple here and can open his account.

(Bet THE EDGAR WALLACE as a win single with The Tote and if the SP is bigger than the Tote win dividend, get paid out at SP!)
