• 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!

  • 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.

Thanks Sean Sean, the number of 2nds I've had is amazing. I was thinking of going each-way, but isn't win-only the most profitable long-term? So I've heard, anyway. Good luck with your thread :)

Re: EW or what/not?

I was a big believer in EW for decades, especially the old EW Double.
Looking back, I think it was a mistaken policy.

My latest fad is for backing two in the race , win only. My selection, plus the one I fear as the biggest danger - prices permitting.
At the start of the trial, my selections kept winning, so the second bet was a total waste.
Then, just when I thought I'd cracked it, the rag won at double figures in a five runner race, with my two both unplaced! :D

It had to happen, I guess, but, EW would not have helped.

Best of the lot is when my selection is the big-priced rag ( win only). The saver bet is lost, but that's only there to reduce possible losses. Doing both EW didn't return enough to warrant my continuing with that idea ( four bets in a race).

So, I favour two win bets in the same race. Proper mathematical "dutching" would probably be good, but, I often just do equally split stakes ( as I'm lazy).
 
Another option is to have a small wager on the second selection on the exchanges, laying it in running at a price that wins your original full stake back. Again, obviously not guaranteed if the second selection runs too poorly to lay IR, but often works out alright.

I believe an old e/w double trick was to back the 2nd fav in 2 different 5 runner races even better if the fav & 2nd fav were well clear of 3rd in the market
