# Math Probability

If you have 3 horses in a race, A (price 6/4), B (7/4) and C (7/2). For a stake of £1000 how do i get the maximum return by backing all 3 (if they have the same chance)?

Bet the minimum allowed bet on A and B and the rest on horse C - if as you say they all have equal chance of actually winning and the odds are unrepresentative, then put it all on the odds that offer the highest return - in this case 7/2.
