What is a Straight Tricast Bet

A straight tricast bet is a bet containing three selections for a race in a specific order (i.e. the bet on a top three in a horse race only pays out if you predict the specific order of the top three). What sets them apart from combination tricast bets are that you have to get the order exactly right.
