A market is offered on which runner will win the race without a nominated runner, generally the favourite, being included. For the purpose of settlement, the nominated runner’s finishing position is ignored.
The “nominated runner” is clearly defined and does not change throughout betting.
In the event the nominated runner is scratched, the market will be suspended with any wagers placed prior to the withdrawal to stand. If any other runner is scratched, wagers placed on that runner will be refunded with winning wagers subject to deductions.
Dead heat rules apply.
