+:constraints+ takes regular expressions with the restriction that regexp anchors can't be used. For example, the following route will not work:
<ruby>
-get '/:id' => 'posts#show', :constraints => {:id => /^\d/}
+get '/:id' => 'posts#show', :constraints => {:id => /\d/}
</ruby>
However, note that you don't need to use anchors because all routes are anchored at the start.
