A is one of the 6 horses entered for a race and is to be ridden by one of two jockeys B and C.

It is  2 to 1 that B rides A. In which case all the horses are equal likely to win .If C  rides A, his chance is trebled.

### Re: probability

Is it the odd against C winning or A winning?
"his chance is trebled" Is it relative to B or overall against other 5?
