Horse Racing Discussion and Information Weekly Thread - Mon 8th Jan - Sun 14th Jan

Postby Gman84 » Sun Jan 07, 2018 4:40 pm

Another exciting week of racing to come. Lets hope the weather doesn't play too much havoc although I suspect the cold snap might claim one or two jumps fixtures. The AW can keep things going. Any thoughts on Southwell looking to change surfaces and also install floodlights?

Saturday sees the Lanzarote Hurdle at Kempton and also some listed and graded action from Warwick making up the ITV racing.

As always, your tips, thoughts, discussion points are more than welcome regarding the weeks racing.

Does anyone know, who or where do you write to, if you have a problem with a bet concerning a bookmaker to find out if I am getting the right answer.
Not with OLBG set up, just got an answer back from my problem and not happy with the reply.

Right folks, here is the wee problem, I would like an answer to if anyone can

Bet played 12.50 points Each Way horse wins, price taken 33/1 price won at 7/1
Returns of 105 points, this is less stake due to free bet.
Three non runners Drums Of War (self certificate), Espoir De Teillee (vet's certificate), Outback Blue (unsuitable ground)
Also one non runner from night before, which was favourite at time when bet was placed.

Rule four has come into play.

The question I want to know, how do you work the rule four and what prices were these non runners to bring in a 90% deduction, which I think is a lot.

I have wrote to the company and they have half answered the question, so I wrote back asking for the half of the answer, would like to read some of your views about a bet of this nature.

try and ring another bookmaker and ask what the rule 4 was it will be hard to try and find out for a race that long back a couple of days would be okay but not the 19th of december

I've always seen the fibresand at Southwell to be old school and so singular that it's harder to pick winners. Consequently I've looked forward to the day they replace it.
It's interesting to read the various trainers thoughts though with some saying it's more forgiving on horses joints and others saying there's little point in changing to tapeta with lights and having another all weather that's going to clone what we already have.
Perhaps the most interesting solution, can't remember who suggested it, is to have a dirt track.
