John Thanks for the update. Forum Mark Forums Read. I inadvertently added an additional SUM term to both equations in my original repy – apologies – never post mathematical equations to forum late at night!

These are totally harivlle assumptions but they do give reasonable values. Michael, Apologies for not replying sooner but I have not logged on to the forum for a couple of days.

Based on your location, we recommend that you select: This calculates the probability of finishing 2nd for each horse. The sum of these probabilities adds to one. And we only need all permutations of the first 3 hraville for betting purposes.

See the paper by D. Given every horse’s probability of winning a race, what is the probability that a specific horse will finish 2nd and 3rd?

Looks like you are in error using the prob of 2nd place when computing prob of 3rd. Michael, As you say, it does not make any sense. Is anybody able to tell me these formulas or point me somewhere I can get them?
