  1. The points weren’t solely about getting on- the value has been smashed up the night before and limited amounts of cash have formed markets – so in theory Bookmakers should have more confidence to lay bets -but they don’t! Punters aren’t stupid when they feel any sort of value has been sucked out of the game they will walk away – The In running markets are still thriving on other sports, but punters still have issues with exchange charges if they are very successful. This is ultimately leading to less liquidity (Especially on Horse Racing bread & butter markets) – many would argue it’s tot
  2. It’s been coming for many years but the restrictions and majority of Bookmakers unwilling to lay any volume of money especially on Horse Racing is starting to having a dramatic affect. Let’s Name and shame the biggest culprits! William Hill – won’t lay any reasonable bets Betfred – Should be re-named Bet Restrictions Ladbrokes – Become such a back number these days – restrictions galore Stan James – does anyone ever even try with these clowns anymore? Victor Chandler – pointless even asking for a price let alone a bet- pt –pt Bookmakers lay more than these lot! Paddy Power – Pathetic cut
  3. Re: BBOTD Saturday 19th January Cant wait to see if Tony Newcombe withdraws 'Spellmaker' now 'Valdaw' been smashed up - the booking of William Carson suggests hes a 1/33 shot to be pulled out. Has anyone got any stats on how many horses with Carson booked are pulled out on the day. Prehaps the spread firms could open a book daily 'Sexton House' is the first of the day - of course they will use the weather as a genuine excuse which of course maybe true makes a change from the horse box breaking down.

  6. Re: Flat Racing; Saturday 10th June Lingfield 8.10 On the Feather looks over priced at 9/2 hes put two decent back to back runs together and the form is working out well, with Danvilla winning again. While hes still a maiden the stable is going well and this looks a good opotuinty to get off the mark with doubts avout the Favourite staying the trip and the likes of The Blue Dog who rarely pass wind hes worth a punt at the price.
  7. Re: Binocular out of Champion Hurdle If you owned a Horse with Paul Nicholls would you want him telling every Tom . Dick & Harry knowing what was really going on! Take what any trainer tells you with a pinch of salt, its all right wanting all information in the public domain but its not going to happen when it costs £15,000 a year minimum to keep these animals in training! The well being and targets for horses is what the general public need to know!
  8. Re: Binocular out of Champion Hurdle Correct me if i am wrong, but didn’t this bloke get done for some illegal substance in one of Queens horses? Wasn’t he warned off for a period which didn’t affect him at all, as the period was summer jumping were he has very few runners anyway! I suggest anyone else would have got slaughtered! Secondly wasn’t this the bloke who told the general public Binocular wasn’t well enough to race in the Champion Hurdle last year and sent him back to JP stud in Ireland? This is the bloke who looks at this horse every single day and no one would know more
  9. Re: The Jockey Thread Having watched ATR today i did see the Cathy Gannon ride its a good job its wasn’t Jamie Spencer the emails would have been blocked for hours. To be fair the horse in question needs to be covered up and travels well and you will find that he will always need to be ridden with balls of steel. if the gap would have opened 100 yards out she would have been hailed a hero, such is life and a punters curse. For me much worst was Matthew Cosham ride on Captain Dimitrios ! Firstly he’s on the best horse in the race, he has ideal draw but allows two horses from the outside to s
  10. Re: Harbinger finished!??!?? Reported to be a fracture on ssn so looks the end of his racing career. Its always higher profile when its a good one, but its worth bearing in mind this happens regular its part and parcel of Racing all be it very sad.
  11. Re: Victor C Can't see why bookmakers have not started an exchange themselves.:ok Very good point Ginge I would suggest it would be too big a risk, and is there room for another exchange? B----q have tried to get a share of the market but the truth is B----f are the daddy of exchanges. You are right on several points, the novelty will wear off at some point but the 'Modern' punters will always need a platform to trade from.
  12. Re: Glorious Goodwood (Day 4) - Friday 30th July Interesting that Paul Hanagan (Stable Jockey) takes an outside ride on one for Ruth Carr, i would be very surprised if Sunrise Safari won, in fact i am very surprised Fahey hasnt insisted Hanagan rides his horse!
  13. You have to love Bookmakers , they have milked the game for years and ripped punters off and made hay in the good times. Now the industry has had a major shakeup and new blood has appeared in the form of the betting exchanges, bookmakers are squealing. The suggestion that the leading exchange should charge layers 10% to lay horses is absurd and clearly not going to happen secondly the exchange is not going to swallow the charge. The sponsorship this exchange puts into racing along with other sports is phenomenal, yes is raking it in but that’s because it was a fantastic idea and it’s been
