For those that like a flutter
 
I am told that Flying Bear 6.00 Doncaster will not get beat

3-1 still available

LB, I don't know anything about horse racing, just looking at the odds, which would never be in my favour.

Having said that, on the 6:35 or either or both the 9:10 race card at Doncaster, with such a small field of horses, what would the [win/lose] odds be putting one-pound (or in multiples) bet each-way on every horse in the race, say 6 horses out of the gate?

Would it be throwing money away, or a chance of a small net percentage return?

Will see what the pay out is after the race

You are guaranteed to lose. Bookmakers odds are set so that the bookies always win. If you could bet on everything and make a positive return, everyone would do it, and the bookies would go bankrupt.
