Rickie Fowler at 20/1 ew looks a decent bet For the Masters. Going to be windy first two days and he won't mind. He's also 25/1 to be leader after day 1 when wind is strongest.

Sky paying 8 places ew on overall.

11/1 @Paddy Power is the only bookmaker price I can see at the moment. Was tiny amount at 14.0 on Betfair...........now tiny amount at 10.0...............obviously thin market at the moment but keep an eye on it.


Thanks for this. :thup:
Just had an hour long look at this race and was left with the all to familiar "no selection".
A tough race to sort out tbh.
I did notice the sire stats of Network though and then read your post so feck it a 20/80 win/place on Betty, and a small win bet in running.
Should stop me worrying about 3 o'clock for 10 minutes or so.

Not a tip, just my own dumb ass race reading, my only other bet (price permitting) is 6.20 Wolves - Blue Bahia.
Market to yet get any liquidity into it but anything over 5/1 and I'll have a small win bet.

Is anyone having a go at the Bet365 offer? Thinking about using it as a free way to have a bet, not sure if I'm getting this worked out right...

Looking at Last Samuri @ 21.0 with bet365 - £20 E/W

Lay in the place market on Betfair @ 6.0 or thereabouts - £100 liability

If it wins = total return in Bet365 is £540, loss in betfair is £100 = £400 profit

If it places = bet365 return is £120 + £20 refund, loss in betfair is £100 = break even

If it loses = £20 loss in Bet365 (after £20 refund), £20 win in betfair = break even

Am I figuring this out right (give or take commission) or am I missing something fundamental?!

-5pts (-5.4)

Big hit to the bank as Cue Card fell again at the same fence as last year, but unlike the last trip he looked all but beaten and well out of it.

I haven't put up 2 of my last choices as I'm not sure if this thread is dying a bit. I had RB Leipzig as a home win last Saturday, evens and Juve were 6-4 to win on Tuesday.
I still managed to talk myself out of Palarse to beat l'Arse at 7-2 and unforgivably for taking a small punt on Crotone to beat Inter which they did 2-1, they were 11-1!

Barnsley are are 21-10 at my local bookies to win at Wigan tonight.
Forest to beat Blackburn at home are 5-4 and Notts Co are 6-4 to win at Crewe.

I think I'm going to go big on the Luton handicap.

This type of bet wont be available on Orient games after this weekend I suspect so the opportunity is now or never.

Will probably cover -2 -3 and -4.

Just came on here to post about Luton as well
-2 @ 13/8 is free money

I've got £30 on -4 @9/1
And £30 on -5 @ 22/1

Both bets dropped 3 points as soon as the news broke about no wages being paid
I can see the odds dropping again come 2pm tomorrow when the team sheets are announced
If the 13/8 is still available lunchtime tomorrow I might go big on that
I reckon -2 might end up being about 5/6 if they keep the markets alive

Put a bet on tonight, a Wigan, Rochdale double.

As I was selecting Wigan, and placing the bet they had gone 0-1 down.

Luckily got the odds at 0-1and they ended up winning 3-2 and Rochdale won 0-1.

Don't know what the odds were at 0-0 but £140 back from £10 ain't bad :thup

Well done. I thought about doing Rochdale but for me they're a bit like Gillingham and Peterboro', always let me down.I did Ajax at 7-5 but in a treble with Barnsley and Lyon, will just about cover my stake and only a tenner on Barnsley single, I never usually put my single selection in an accumulator.

Tip for the 2000 Guineas (which is 2 weeks this Saturday) at Newmarket

Available at 10-1 in a few places. (Lads, Boyles, Betfred)

Eminent .......E/W

Be shocked if he out of the first three. Think he will shorten up in price so worth getting involved now.
