Here's a strange one or I thought it was anyway. Went into Lads to have a 100 ew on Knock Stars @ 12's in Cork a while back. Ran docket thru the computer and then waited for a trader to allow the bet. 3 min(i'd say) later I was told I could have 100 win and 25 place. So I thought about it for about 3 mins, looked up oddschecker on the phone and eventually said no and walked away. My da was with me and I was saying it to him(while cursing at the same time) cos I had drove 20 miles to have the bet on, which is annoying. So I said we'll head down to another Lads the other side of the town and split the bet into two 50e/w. He was waiting 5 mins for the trader and so was I but both bets were laid. So tell me this wats the difference between 100 e/w and 2 bets of 50e/w. Wasting my ****g time is wat the difference is. Knock Stars finishing unplaced put the tin hat on it. I didn't think this was a bad e/w as the books call them. They just had her overpriced is all.

Bookies refuse to lay in bed of own making

By Pat Keane

Saturday, November 06, 2010

HAVE a glance at this e-mail that I, along with many others, received from William Hill some days ago.


a d v e r t i s e m e n t


According to the company, David Yu’s first interview as chief executive of the betting exchange, Betfair, has revealed that his firm has a serious identity crisis.

Yu, they say, claims that Betfair is a bookmaker. According to William Hill: "Up to now that is an assertion that his company has angrily refuted, claiming instead to be just a simple technology platform. On that basis it has avoided paying around three times less in tax and levy than traditional UK bookmakers — like William Hill.

"The technology claim has enabled Betfair to pay tax and levy only on the commission it charges backers and layers operating through its UK exchange. It seems David Yu has now stopped believing his own propaganda."

Ralph Topping, William Hill’s chief executive, said: "The emergence of Betfair has distorted the UK betting market and led to very significant tax and levy leakage. The taxpayer and the racing industry have been the losers.

"Most expert observers believe that Betfair has many unidentified big layers on its platform paying no tax and no levy. It is ridiculous for Betfair to claim to be the injured party when in fact other operators, like William Hill, have had to go offshore in the face of a company which has gamed the system to secure a competitive advantage."

You know, I’m sure, there is plenty in what William Hill and Ralph Topping claim, but on reading their message the overwhelming feeling was one of sheer cynicism.

I mean, can you actually accuse the likes of William Hill and Ladbrokes of being so-called traditional UK bookmakers? Well, if traditional means they behave in England in the same manner as they do in Ireland then definitely. There’s "a serious identity crisis" all right.

In Ireland, all these firms are short of doing is putting up signs which say "only mugs wanted", or "thou shalt not win". Listen, essentially you can lump all of the off-course bookmakers in Ireland into the exact same box, except that one, two at a real push, are a bit more accommodating.

William Hill and the others are entitled to worry about the effect Betfair continues to have on their businesses.

But they don’t get it and are still failing to come to terms with the reasons why Betfair has attracted so many thousands of punters. And, indeed, why Betfair is likely to continue to grow and grow.

It’s quite simple, off-course bookmakers no longer offer a service which is acceptable to many punters.

If standing at a counter with the possibility of being kept waiting and, ultimately, humiliated is for you then you know where to go.

I could fill this column every week with stories of punters being knocked back when attempting to wager relatively small amounts.

The off-course layers don’t seem to realise that every time they refuse to take a bet they are driving that punter closer to opening a Betfair account.

The beauty of Betfair is that, on most occasions at least, you can have a proper lump on, free from the worry of being told to take your custom elsewhere.

That e-mail from William Hill is one of many racing correspondents receive every day from the off-course bookmakers’ PR agents.

They waffle on about this bet and that bet and for how much they have laid such and such a horse.

We take it all with the proverbial grain of salt. And then, of course, there is Ladbrokes’ Hayley O’Connor and her appearances on Attheraces.

She is repeatedly given an audience, but never asked a serious question. She’s merely doing her job, of course, and more power to her. Meanwhile, however, you have numerous viewers screaming at the television, "but Ladbrokes wouldn’t lay eggs".

LET me give you a personal example. On Sunday, October 24, Ladbrokes were going 7-4 on a horse called Dylan Ross in a bumper at Galway.

I wandered into their Midleton office in Co Cork as I wanted a decent few quid on and decided €600 would be a start and unlikely to raise the hare.

I handed the cash and the docket to the clerk, who began to play with his computer. Everything was going smoothly, until his head arched in my direction.

"You can only have €100 on," he said. I politely declined his kind offer and shuffled away. Yes, another possible Betfair candidate had just been born.

William Hill, Ladbrokes and the rest can behave as they like, sadly there is no legislation in place to force them to treat people properly.

But when the likes of William Hill think they should e-mail the press, questioning the behaviour of another organisation, then excuse me if I consign such utterings to the nearest bin.

So Keane wanted to have €600 on?, well talk about a big pink elephant walking into a betting shop!, these PLC's simply don't take that sort of money in shops anymore, and haven't done for years. Anyone that comes in wanting to have that sort of cash on will automatically set alarm bells ringing, putting all your eggs in one basket almost guarantees you to get knocked back, spread the bet around in non suspicious amounts in different shops, you'll probably get it all on without causing any suspicion, another thing is never bet with the same firm all the time, if you have a consistent winning run you are automatically logged as a dangerous customer and guaranteed to get knocked back eventually.
These are so obvious yet people still go in looking for hundreds on in the one shop?

All bookies have their VIP's sinndar, their cards are well and truely marked for them before the prices hit the shops, the shop punters are picking up the scraps.

Yet the bookies on course still have huge margins in their favour, supposedly its to protect them from insiders, that might have been true years ago where morning prices were thin on the ground and the internet betting was non existent, now they're aware of whats fancied before they even go to bed the night before.
Maybe Keane might mention that tomorrow if interviewed?.
The margins are not as bad as usual at Punchestown this week, tough still bloody awful, as there is strong markets through weight of money, but ordinary midweek fare has often seen margins tipping over the 170% mark, almost unheard of, only in Ireland could you get on-course margins as high as that.

Well lets just say they'd get a lot more on than most, of course they have limits, the horse is then ducked by the firm, so they'll take more on other horses in the race to balance their books, and lay off the bet with other bookmakers who are going bigger odds than they are.

GANT007..Unlike you to get a story wrong but Paddy Power swore vengeance after the Punchestown debacle.Punchestown did a covert deal with Ladbrooks over the betting shop and never told Powers,both sets of staff turned up and there was a stand off,Powers were in situ and refused Ladbrooks access,the manager came down and got Powers to leave.Powers complaint was they never got a chance to match or better Ladbrooks offer so they declared war,the greyhound Derby was the first casualty.Ousting Ladbrooks from the Curragh is another manifestation of it,nothing to do with acceptance of bets.
Some years ago this happened the other way round at Leopardstown,Ladbrooks had the shop, Powers used influence to acquire the franchise leading to Ladbrooks abandoning their sponsorship.This caused Leopardstown some hardship as what was the old Sweeps Hurdle had no sponsor indeed Jed Pearse personally put up the money one year after his firm hit stormy weather.
This row is bitter.

Anyone that deal with PPs on a professional capacity (i.e provides services to them or supplies them or does business with them knows all too well that they are terrible to deal with. They are ruthless and would leave you in the halfpenny place.
I have the height fro Punchestown and if they gaves Paddies the road there was a good reason for it. Punchestown is the nest run course in the Country by a mile great to do business with.

AS for Pat Keane I do not have an issue with him raising the fact that the morning price fiasco is nothing more than a ready up and a marketing tool for bookmakers but any professional to come on TV moaning he could not have €600 at 7/4 on a 4/5 shot or €300ew at 7/2 a 6/4 shot does not deserve to be laid. Bookmakers are not going to hand money over to you. I bet if "cool" Pat had got off his ass and tried to break his bets into 3 or stuck someone else in like everyone else does he would have been laid. Point I am making is grow up Pat you clown and give over your moaning because bookies will nor line your pockets. Get over it.

Finally I have to make a comment about the Totty at the races yesterday. What a day out. For an old perv like me it was lik dying and going to heaven. Never enjoyed a day so much despite not winning.

I work in IT by the way Kavvie not a bookmaker although one of the major firms were customers of ours until we fell out with them

lustrumm  -  if they considered it a 4/5 shot - they should have marked that up, not 7/4.

it is mind-boggling to think that an outfit with over 2000 shops would not stand a liability of 1050.

If one person walked into each of their shops and had 30p on - it would be the same thing  -  I just do not understand the business-thinking behind it.

lustrumm i find you're rant there quite amazing to be totally honest. Fair enough he maybe should know what they are like and try and get it on in smaller amounts but why the hell should he have too? They employ odds compilers to price up races and other events, these people are supposed to know what they are doing. If a horse is a 4/5 shot and their compiler made him a 7/4 shot it's time to ask is this man / women the right person for the job. Whats the point in them hiring people as odds compilers as they obviously do not believe they can do the job properly.

I don't like criticising Keane as to be fair to him at least he tries to swim some way against the tide. Even our own Johnny W has gone native it would appear so any voice for ther plebs is to be creditted. But fair is fair. To come on live TV moaning why he cannot get on a rick when he is a known racing professional is pathetic. For Jaysus sake I could have told that would happen 20 years ago when Cashmans were in their pomp.
There is normally at least 5 meetings on a Sunday. That is 35 or so races and PAt moans that he cannot have a lump on the most uncompetitive race he can find after no doubt checking the price with every other firm and betfair before moving.
Ground control to Major Tom I say.

As for Punchy point taken. Perhaps I boiled over with the sight of all that flesh yesterday but I have to admit it was as good a session and a day out as I ever had and fair play to them. I would be more referring to the event organisers rather than the executive here

Is it in the interest of the bookie to go a good price about the fav but not really want to lay it. U see it all the time on oddschecker. Bookies like sid james have happy hour where they push out the price of a fancied horse but will only lay it for a certain amount. For example they go 5's about a general 4/1 shot, People open an account to take the 5's as obviously its better than anywhere else. They're allowed 50 quid on it. Thats it. Sid James have got another potential customers/losers to open up an account by going a better price than anyone else. JOB DONE.

its a joke!! why should anyone have to go to several of the same shop to place bits and pieces in each in order to get their entire stake on. it shows exactly whats wrong with the firms and is laughable!
