now if the romford bookmakers laid bets and stopped knocking people back all the time i would not put this thread up but no you can't keep knocking people back and expect to get away with this sh1t the romford betting ring was one of the best but now its a laughing stock especially on a friday night they have ruined a once very good betting ring.

the track bookmakers have a record for years not going big prices the rags on betfair and suddenly go 20t1 2 dogs in a race it will stand out like today that's why it was a red flag job with bookmakers

In today's RP Jonathan Kay reports that bookmakers were reacting to the Betfair market. There was no unusual betting activity with the off course bookies and the winner actually hit 80 on here at one stage. The Romford racing manager Peter O'Dowd did query the markets as he said he was not in the habit of grading 20/1 chances.

here are the industry SPs and the BSP for the race

T1 6/4 3.4
T2 20/1 23
T3 2/1 3.9
T4 3/1 6.6
T5 20/1 18
T6 3/1 5.6

industry 132% betfair 98%

a crooked show is probably stretching it a bit imo (see a sprint race at another track the other day for 1 of those lol)
however laying 20/1 for 2&5 is madness, realistically 10s is the biggest both 2&5 should have been

at the dogs, The 80 was just a price that was reported to have been offered on here. It wasn't anything to do with what anyone thought it should be.

the reason why the show in my eyes was crooked they never go these prices at romford suddenly they went 20t1 trap 2 and 20t1 trap 5 when the dogs are 4.3 for 2pound and the show is 3t1 they cut it to 11t4

Report dr . atkins July 5, 2018 7:11 PM BST
