how to beat the bookmaker

He was 25/1 and went off 25/1 so you should get best odds guarantee and be paid at those odds. You should get £6.25 back per £1 bet.

Purple Bay at 16s in that Galway race (may well struggle under the stone extra it was raised for dotting up at Market Rasen a couple of weeks ago, though).

 

Ran a fair race to be 7th given he was 11-10 + claimer.

Indeed.

I caught the replay on Sporting Life (need a skybet ID to access the replays). He was going pretty well until about 3 out and then the weight told.

Took him at 20/1 on Skybet after reading your post, should've chosen SP!

Skybet are one of the only bookies that don't offer best odds gaurantee I think. What that means is whatever is higher the sp or the odds you took is the price they pay out on. 80% of bookies give that concession.

 

Skybet are the worst of all bookies, followed by Coral who's business model is don't take any real bets just have loads of shops with fixed odds betting machines and make the money that way. Ladbrokes used to be bad but I saw they upped their limits which is decent as I got factored by B365 earlier this year.

 

doesn't matter really as my younger brother has given me all his accounts. I'll be using them this season.

So true  :). There are 2 Coral shops in Sheldon within 1000 yards of each other here in Sheldon!

Think Djokovic will be a profitable proposition back on his favourite surface. So going to back him for the two masters and the US open. 

 

First up Toronto £100 @ 5/4

Ouch this clearly hasn't gone too well.

On that note Robredo has been playing some really good tennis lately, he can be backed at 500/1 on betfair but I'm actually looking for a normal bookie to back him each way, don't think he will win but be could easily get to quarters or semis the way he is playing.

Backed Scottish Independence vote %

Yes vote 45-50% - £100 @ 6/4

Yes vote 40-45% - £40 @ 11/4

Defo a No vote. We've experience of these types of votes in Ireland. Where a portion of people will say they will vote yes but in the quiet solitude of the booth the vote for status quo.

For the benefit of fellow Villa fans, prior to posting on my site (which I'm redeveloping at the moment)

 

Cheltenham antepost :)

 

Last season I told you to back Faugheen @ 12/1 for the Neptune and he won doing handstands.

 

This year we have Allez Colombieres @ 16/1 for the Supreme Novices Hurdle. Rich Ricci's most expensive purchase ever at €300,000

 

While Pont Alexandre is back after missing a season through a small injury. He will be going for the RSA and is also 16/1. Ruby called him the next Denman. 

 

Doing a cheeky double wouldn't hurt anyone either ;)
