CALCULATION OF CHANCES,
WE have much pleasure in presenting to such of our readers as
may be at all interested in Turf speculations, the following Table, which contains the odds on a far greater variety of cases in one race than any other ever before published.
From the Examples selected it will be shewn how to find the odds between single horses, or between any one number and any
other; also between any number and the field : likewise the sums to be given to receive 1001. on the event of any specified horse, or one of any number selected, winning the race.
The Table is composed of the fractional parts of 1001., and the divisions made to an eighth of a pound, or 2s. Od. Where it would not divide exactly, the last complete eighth is only stated : for instance at 5 to 4 against a horse, his chance is stated at 143, whereas it is found, by continuing the operation, to be Is. 4!,d., and nearly onefourth of a farthing more. These small fractions not being considered in practical betting, we have left them out.-It is to be observed that the odds stated in the Table are against the horse, and of course on the field,
