• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.
  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Hi SilverBlaze and welcome. I don't understand the point of SAW. Surely the horses AFTER the winner have just as much chance of winning than the horses BEFORE the winner.
Some systems are SAW because they are Fibonaci type staking ie 1pt/2pt/3pt/5pt etc

Thanks, MartinK. The reason for SAW is that I'll be operating a staking plan with stake adjustments after the days results. The ideal approach would be race to race, but I'm not able to update the stake in running.

Oh dear. Loss recovery. A bad run and the bank goes bang.

1pt each win only. SAW. No bet if SP less than 5/1.

1.10 - Doncaster - CEPHEUS - Lost @ 9/2
2.20 - Doncaster - CAME FROM THE DARK - Lost @ 4/1
4.42 - Chelmsford - CAPTAIN RYAN - 3rd @ 9/1
5.15 - Chelmsford - ROCKETEER - 3rd @ 11/4

Profit/Loss: - 1 point [1 day]

I mean. I understand the point of having the price restrictions, but it is impossible to know the SP until it is too late to make the bet unfortunately.
Years ago in betting shops you could write 5/1 up on the slip so if the SP was less the bet was void win or lose, but I do not know if any still allow this. ? You could also do it with the BFSP min price facility.

Hi Pete. If you're in the bookies [that's assuming you can find one still open], you would write the selections out in full with the instruction 'no bet if SP less than 5/1'. However, if you're betting online, you would need to monitor the current price near the off. I accept that on some occasions this will result in striking a bet that may return a loser at less than 5/1, but conversely, it will also at times result in a winner. Swings and roundabouts.

Absolutely, Mick.
