Perth races tomorrow. Looking forward to a good day out. Anyone have any fancies?

I've always found that shiteloads of booze is an excellent bet at Perth races.

Gun to my head I'd be backing Got Away in 3:15 and Guy e/w in the 4:45, Got away showing nice form of late only slight concern would be it just had a big run last week however it wouldn't be a surprise if it goes one better here.
Just fuck off and die.

Liking the look of Steve Clarke to be next permanent Scotland manager at 5/1.

Never normally bet on these kind of markets but this one looks pretty good value and worth a punt.

Well got out of jail alive in Perth. Disappointing with withdrawals thus reducing fields to seven runners and e/w 1-2

The fav in the 11:30 won by some distance..

John Higgins 8-4 down in semi final of snooker.

Get your money on him at 31/20.  Only a matter of time.

10-6 now and he played like a dog....should really have been 11-5 down. Dramatic improvement required, as it stands I think the bookies have got him underpriced

I backed Holland to win in 90 minutes @ 10/1 when they were 1-0 down. Slightly bittersweet to see that goal just now in extra time.





Was it fuck. Fucking lurveley. GIRFUY Engerlund. This commentator kills me.

I did myself over on the horses yesterday. 

Was going to do a 25p e/w Lucky 15 on four ITV Racing televised races at Sandown. I'd picked three (6/1) shots in Caspian Prince which drifted to (11/1) and was placed third, then Hidden Message which came into (9/4) FAV in the morning but wasn't allowed to take 6's as wasn't in till apparently and he won his race, plus Regal Reality who also went out in betting to (17/2) before placing third and finally took Escobar at (20/1) that finished no less than a length behind winner in 2nd after being backed into (12/1).

I did 50p Win Lucky 15 meaning only Hidden Message at (9/4) will be paid out on!!!!  If I'd have done e/w like I intended with (20/1) Escobar, been given (6/1) on Hidden Message yesterday morning that I saw on screen in shop, then got given the drifted prices of Regal Reality and Caspian Prince regarding best odds guaranteed I believe I'd have got an extra £70 on top of our single selections. Even if I had the prices given in two (6/1) 3rd's the (20/1) second and (9/4) FAV winner still talking a top up of £31ish.

The bookies aren't stupid. 800/1 now isn't even good value.

My 3/1 on Brooks placed on Friday should've been stronger but for him missing putts all day. Finally got one at 14 though but Shane the man in pole position.

A guy in our local cashed out a £5 sixfold tonight for £517.26. If he had not, he would've lost a fiver as MK Dons conceded in the 94th minute. Remind me how the cash out function favours the bookies?

Aye, but what would he hypothetically have got if MK Dons hadn't scored? Because that's the really important number.
