    Well done MoM.

    Glad we’re spreading out the liabilities amongst the bookmakers - wouldn’t want to bankrupt the industry when we clean up

    Good idea this MoM.
    Allows to track price changes and, god forbid, any scratches.....

    No problem lads. Happy to help.

    Imagine the scenes if we get the first three land in one of these. If 50 people on here have backed these, the bookies possible liabilities for the Yankee if the fourth was to win would be all over the racing news.

    Interesting to see we have three different horses in these Yankees already for the Gold Cup and the season hasn’t yet started. Also surprising to see that of the four major races, it’s Altior and the Champion Chase with the least entries from us with just one (March).

    Don't forget there are 10 festival handicaps where markets are not formed until well into the season and finding a fancy for one of these races is just about impossible 7 months out, so I expect every monthly yankee to focus on the championship and novice events until the New Year.
    This will mean duplication and contradiction but that's unavoidable...

    As ridiculous as it may sound, I have an early fancy for the handicaps on day 1. Even asked for a price on one of them.

    It's certainly not ridiculous to have a view but a horse rated 145 now may well be 160 come March and either doesn't qualify for the 'caps or connections have a stab at a championship race.
    And we know horses will be declared for multiple races and picking out a likely target this far out is riddled with risk...

    Totally agree Ista, that's why I haven't pulled the trigger at 33/1.
