A Tote Jackpot pool of over pounds 335,000 was only partially won at Ascot yesterday, leaving a carryover of pounds 238,492.58 brought forward to today's Ascot card.

Those wishing to try a permutation on the Jackpot races - the first six races - should simply decide how many selections that want to include in each of the six races and then multiply the numbers of selections in each race together to calculate the number of bets they wish to have.

For example, if a punter wishes to have two selections running in each race, the calculation is two x two x two x two x two x two = 64 bets. It will cost pounds 64 to have such a permutation to a full pounds 1 stake but most bookmakers will accept perms starting at 10 pence per line, which would cost pounds 6.40.
