Q: What are coupled or bracketed runners?
A: Coupled/Bracketed runners are horses owned or trained by the same individual running in the same race. If you bet on coupled runners they always share the same betting number. You can identify the horses in the program based on their program number, eg „1“ and „1A“. Both would run under betting number „1“.
