A Dundee shuffle. I've copied this!Select four horses in four full stake singles bets Any-To-Come a half-stake Trixie on the other three, six half stake doubles Any-To-Come a full stake Double on the other two, four half stake Trebles and each way half stake Accumulator. (Totalling sixteen bets, four at full stake and twelve at half stake. For example 4 x £1 plus 12 at 50pence, totalling £10 stake.) It would be interesting to find out the author of this excruciatingly elaborate bet, and whether anyone has ever won any substantial amount with it. My best guess is that it was invented by a quasi mathematical genius with too much time on his hands in the 1930s.
Stewarts rise, that brings back memories. The settler in my local independant always maintained that he could settle a 'Dundee Shuffle' in his head. He was such a brilliant settler and totally above board that nobody ever questioned him!
