Don't think the voting will change much over last few shows. Charlie Brooks withstanding

Market order would certainly be more than palatable.

The money is not really giving a clue that Jac is any more popular, but I would sense the edit will have benefited Jac the most tonight.

Sorry, JOT, last night was my annual night of having to socialise, missed this and the SCD semi.

FAO; loui and keynes
Great to see irregular posters, a hearty hello, do join us more often! You`ve both asked questions on horse`s ever-fantastic `Pricewatch` thread; rather than clutter that factual thread up with chatter, let me give you an answer on this thread, hoping you`re both reading it

Before the elimination votes started, there was plenty of volatility in the market; nobody, insiders or us, knew anything. For First Eviction, Adele was matched up to 30, lowest 2.26, and at suspension was 6.2 (copyright, as always, horse); this was the last clean market, as the insiders now how solid info, we saw their ever-increasing confidence in each subsequent market, and it was these elimination prices that drove the Outright market prices.

Given all that^, there`s no doubt it`s real-time knowledge of the on-going voting that`s behind this, not manipulation nor producers who know what`s in the edit.

All very sad.

Thanks tim. Its the brazenness of it that's utterly distasteful. The continual multi thousand bets lined up to back the underwhelming "favourite" is shameless. To pick another example, "the market" pushed Nadine from almost second fav at 7.2 to 40 over the space of two days for no apparent reason. True to form, Nadine was dutifully evicted. Ditto for Roman's move from second fav to longshot.
