Who is the best horse racing tipster?
I never tend to follow tipsters much after working around trainers and owners for years and their tips falling flat. I've never been a big spender anyhow prefering to stick to 4-5 horse combo bets for small stakes knowing that if they all come in I will win big anyhoo and if I lose I've lost nothing much.
Tamper Bay and Will Rogers Downs will keep me entertained this evening with my lucky 15's :)

Never advise people to gamble.

But Los Alamitos 2.47am tonight

SANTALUZ DREAMIN 8/1

This horse is massively overpriced imo. It won its first 2 races at Los al in good style and then ran solid 4th in a allowance race. 2nd and 3rd from that have won 20k+ claimers. Drops back down to a 6k claimer tonight.

Will go off nuch shorter come post time.

I'm surprised at how big the prize money generally is in France. If the UK doesn't start racing soon we will probably see quite a few UK horses racing in France

I'm not a fan of Ladbrokes so I just took the money and ran. But if your looking for to stick a bet on anyway then its worth adding a few quid to your bet.
PS. The list of excluded slots is extensive so check the terms carefully

Ladbokes are giving a £5 bonus if you wager £5 on selected slots. Only 1x wagering on the £5 bonus so you cant go far wrong
And welcome back to UK racing from Monday :D
I sort of miss Ladbrokes.

Account been locked for 2 years now due to their mistake. Seeing your post about them made me try logging in again.

By some shock it now let me log in. Saw my balance and went well don't think i will be logging in again. Sitting at -£119.22 :eek: :laugh:

Ha ha. I've never seen a online account in the red before! Feck them. I don't like Ladbrokes but they owe me so I have no issues with taking advantage of their occasional generosity :D

Had the account for like 20 years. Then 2 years ago they had settled some bets wrong. Took days 2 fix then they ended up settling them wrong again but this time they paid too much on those bets.

The next day money was still in account so i withdrew it in the shop. Then that night my account was blocked. Now i was not even sure how much i owed them and they would not tell me on Live Chat. Tried a few times and they would not say. They said if i wanted account unlocked i needed to phone.

Also sent a few emails saying that if they had screwed up they should not have blocked account as it was their fault and for the amount i use them i would pay it back since i liked using them. They would not say how much so i went oh well plenty other sites i use .

Tried many times to check account over last 2 years last night was first ever time it let me log in.

Happen in Betfair quite often these days, mostly due to VAR decision in my cases, have few times withdrawn my balance to get it negative for a while, just to hope they would pick it up from their reporting and would wait these VAR decisions like anyone else. It's annoying enough to get goal disallowed after few mins and end up you to lose but top of that paying your winnings and then take it off don't make the moment any happier...

This VAR thing these days is so bloody annoying.

I like to bet over under goals in matches in play. See the amount of times now you get a goal. Betting gets suspended then after minute or 2 it restarts. Place a bet again then a couple minutes later it then updates again disallowing goal. So your new bet is then waiting on an extra goal for that game with way lower odds.

Does it stop me betting tho. No lol.

Imagine winning any of those Jackpots at Ladbrokes, at that stake, and only getting £1000!

I can not remember why I don't much like Ladbrokes now because its been so long. But like with most things once I am done I am done.
I'm sure that someone could remind me because it is related to a few issues highlighted in here?

I stopped using Ladbrokes about 17 years ago when they limited my SFC's to 10p after I did 3 x £10 ones which all lost. Bear in mind my account was showing a massive loss at the time, as I was trading off using betfair on a lot of races, back in the days when you could make money from Betfair ;)
I spoke to one of the traders and they told me it was because I had put the bets on the all weather and, I quote, they are easy to fix races. I pointed out I had massive losses in the past year on all weather races (was over £10k at the time) and surely if I had the ability to fix races, I would be at least close to level or in profit. I asked if that meant I couldn't play in shop for higher stakes, and he said no, you can do them in shop for £100 without having to go through security, but as online was easier 'to fix' then I was limited there lol.

Did you have your own racing site at the time? I can't see any logic in their reasoning?

I only bet at Paddy Power and I find it frustrating to have to go to Corals or Ladbrokes to find the form of horses because PP do not display any for the French racing. How are PP expecting punters to bet when they don't display such things?

yes but it was fairly new, and they didn't know about it. There wasn't, I checked about 5 years ago and was still limited to the same stake haha.

Welcome back to the UK racing. My bets will be small because I expect the results will be even less predictable than normal due to varying fitness levels.
I suspect when the football starts it may be the same story

Having a bet today for the first time since before lockdown.

2.45K Host
5.05K Malika I Jahan
2.30N Glen Shiel
6.00N Big Country

Big Country usually runs in Class 1 and 2 races, this is the first time he's been dropped to a class 3 for a while now, previously won and placed in most. Been over in Dubai recently where he didn't do well, but a lot of horses don't adapt to Meydan, so not letting that put me off.
