• 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.

Paddy power merged with BF and it is now Paddy Power Betfair.
Ladbrokes own Betdaq
Quite few members like to take early odds with Bookmakers.

Hi Chesam,
Blooming Ada...I have just finished reading the wikpedia history of betfair.I had wondered about BF when it started all that casino bollocks on site.I wonder how a genuine exchange would fair in the UK and Ireland if somebody had enough pennies to make it happen.

I think when the Exchanges came on the scene a lot of people thought it was easy to play bookie......not so much these days.
Very little money in a lot of races early on. Most of the money late on these days is the traders' money.

"enough pennies"
It's a shame the racing authorities don't own a exchange themselves as a way of funding the sport, if that makes any sense.

The Tote should have morphed into a racing owned exhange, but even then they would be as they've always been and wouldn't have been able to keep their fingers out of the till re take out.
