    And the rivally with Kauto and the larger than life Harry Findlay made for a great period of racing
  2. Greyhound Derby

    What a mess the sport is in! There's an article in today's Daily Mail. Anyway, tonight is Greyhound Derby night from Towcester (9.07pm). Sky nights seems to have ended. [I wish VirginMedia would carry RPGTV.] To watch go to: You Tube "Towcester TV". The 6/4 fav, Droopy's Veve was only 2 yesterday! Only 15 races, 11 wins 4 seconds.
  3. Sky Sports Racing vs R-UK

    I expect we all know about the ATR rebrand to Sky Sports Racing, and getting Bangor and Chester. This mornings Daily Mail says that the SSR channel is going after Ascot, and the extra exposure on SSR will be an Ascot consideration when bids are considered. It's a pity ATR wasn't a bit more aggressive sooner. Racing needs a free outlet, rather than a niche audience.

    Baracca, I recall hearing in the early days of PL tips that 3 doubles was working better than 1 treble. I don't know about recently. It should impove the strike rate (if not ROI) which keeps up interest. I'm interested to know myself as I was going to advise this as an automatic system bet for the other half to get into this game.
  5. stake size in proportion of the odds

    VT is surely correct if you bet ~ Even money chances and ~ 33/1 chances. However my bets tend to be either ~6/4-2/1 or ~7/2-5/1 (that's what my systems produce). I used to bet 1pt the shorter ones, 0.8pt the longer ones. I have done better since changing to level stakes. Books like "Betting for a Living" - Nick Mordon and "Against the Odds" - Alan Potts even suggest you should have more on the longer prices. I can't bring myself to that. [Digressing from staking, The worst value often lies between 4/6 and 6/4 as those are the horses the public love to back - per bookmaker Geoff Banks.]
  6. Racing Chat -Thurs 12th April (Aintree day 1)

    Bronxie, You are correct about the offer, but it is for new customers and there are restrictions on use of the free bet. Good luck.
  7. Racing Chat -Thurs 12th April (Aintree day 1)

    Bronxie, I use PP, and don't see that offer. I see: "Money Back as a Free Bet on All Losers on the First 5 Races at Aintree on Thursday and Friday if the SP favourite Wins! Pre-race singles only. Max Free Bet €/£10. (T&Cs apply)" Maybe your offer is to buy new customers ??? Of course the fav may not win. But if you fancy it, might as well have a couple of extra bets. I think that offer is often made when the bookie feels he has a good chance fo getting the fav beat.
  8. My little value method

    I know how you feel. On the occasions when back Place Only, if it goes and wins, it feels like backing a loser.
  9. My little value method

    Your results are very impressive at finding big price placed horses. Have you considered backing Place Only, rather than EW? Just a thought. Keep 'em coming.
  10. Bob, (some more), I agree with you that bookies are not stupid. You are wrong saying the bet is not allowed. I take exception to you calling me an idiot. Was that necessary - even if you were right?
  11. Bob, When I last checked, Paddy's betslip seemed to be setting it up just right - giving the right number of lines with different numbers of selections in each race. (eg 1,2,3 per race). And you don't have to make a selection on races you deem too tough. Try it on your online accounts.
  12. Seeing as you mention the Placepot, I've often thought a Place Only acca would probably give a better return - espec if the fav and 2nd fav keep making the frame.
  13. Racing Chat - Friday March 2nd

    Bumpers for Jumpers: Apparantly the rules state a horse can only run in so many bumpers. But the rule doesn't apply to these hastily arranged fixtures in bad weather. Our addiction and fodder for the betting shops has to be filled.
  14. ATR loses Irish Racing from 2019

    The pain continues. Chelmsford moving to R-UK from 2019.
  15. I suppose most of you know this by now: It doesn't leave much else but the ARC tracks and a few of the small jump tracks. [Yesterday's Leopardstown meeting was excellent.] I hope we don't get lots of European racing and Meydan
