    Melanna 155 Doncaster. Was 40/1 with Paddy's and Betfair Sportsbook (same people) last night - now as low as 7/2. There have been some non runners but nothing to justify that kind of movement. No doubt we'll see the price bounce as the people who were on at bigger prices put in lays on the exchanges to lock in profits, and the bookies realise that they have overreacted by slashing their odds to a ridiculous extent.

    "Melanna 155 Doncaster. Was 40/1 with Paddy's and Betfair Sportsbook (same people)"

    But if they were the same people you would think they would have the same system and therefore have the same prices and price changes. But if you look at their prices either at night or the following morning there are differing prices on the same horse. I've just looked at 7 random races and only one had the same prices for every horse.
    There will obviously be a perfectly good excuse for this.

    Yeah, you get the same with Coral and Ladbrokes, and Betfred and Totesport, you get a certain amount of variation so it looks like whoever's putting up the odds has a certain amount of licence but in instances where they are either the standout biggest price or standout shortest price they will almost always be the same as their partner site. Almost as if there's a three-line-whip that gets on the phone and says "righto chaps, you've had your fun but so and so needs to be 6/4 now so make it happen.

    Paddys and Bfair sportsbook were showing 40s last night and the next highest price was 25s (forget who it was) with the rest at 20s and 16s.

    As a live example, just looking at the first race today (in England anyway)
    Loughview laddie - as low as 5/1 with one firm, 4 firms showing 9/1 on oddschecker, two of those firms are PP and BF sportsbook.
    Spinning scooter is 14 or 16 to one with every firm but two who are 20/1 - Paddy Power and Bf Sportsbook

    Ladbrokes and Coral are exactly the same price for all but three of the 19 runners in the Derby. Betfred and Totesport are exactly the same price for EVERY runner in the Derby.

    So yeah, there is some variation but where there is a big variation from the market norm, or a lot of money on a race you'll usually find the partners locked together on prices

    The US Postal Service honored legendary race horse champion Secretariat with his own postage stamp. That shows you how strange life is for racehorses. You win the race, you wind up on the front of the stamp. Lose a race, you wind up on the back.

    No dice but travelled very well for a long time. Might be worth a second chance
