Please can you tell me what percentage Coral are betting to in their Coral Challenge ante post betting (Saturday, Sandown). There are 38 horses entered and they have a 3/1, 5/1, 6/1, and three horses at 8/1. Was expecting 10/1 the field pretty much so can someone just confirm that they are taking the absolute p1ss with that book?

Thanks

mid 200s which is not even acceptable for a market with two winners

Correct me if I am wrong but don't u just work out how much u need to put on each horse to get back £100?
I.e 3/1 is 25
9/1 is 10 etc etc
Then add them all up

Start with a six dog race, doesn't take long to learn.
Report stridingedge July 1, 2013 5:12 PM BST
each horses chance

is 100/ decimal odds then add them up
Report siralex July 1, 2013 5:13 PM BST
Yep,dog races are normally about 130% and horses about 110%. And yet still the bookies won't take a bet.
Report TheDoc July 1, 2013 5:18 PM BST
Thanks, thought it looked pretty disgraceful. Hopefully someone else will price up shortly and put them to shame but there is also the risk that others will follow suit. Shouldn't there be a minimum percentage they can bet to as that is just awful?

Don't forget ante-post books always look bad because of the likely non-runners (as well as bookies taking the proverbial).
Report harry2.1 July 2, 2013 11:14 AM BST
They have cut the favourite to 5/2ExcitedCry
Report thearchmeister July 2, 2013 11:20 AM BST
easiest way i remeber is do 100 divided the betfair price and obviously an even money shot would be 50%
or if you struggle this link will do you for 15 runners or less
THE FAVS BEEN CUT THAT IS CLASSIC GrinGrinGrin
