    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.

    Might Bite - 1
    Delta Work - 1

    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).

    I suppose it's because this far out the markets that are most formed are the 4 championship races.

    It's to early to be anything more than a 'fun' bet and to be fair Altior is the worst value of the lot despite his incredibly obvious chance and big fan base

    Good idea to keep on top of it

    Yeah I just found it interesting tbh Kev. I certainly won’t be reading too much into it.

    I think Altior probably is value at 7/4 personally.

    If he’s fully fit, he’d be odds on against everything else that could run against him (including footpad). I believe he’d beat footpad by 4 lengths at Cheltenham on any ground.

    What a coincidence M.O.M , I made a list yesterday of the horses we've selected so far ,
    and the races we've selected them for . Thought it might help
    to highlight other selections we've not picked so far.

    I've been away and only just got round to doing this, I have very few online options but the same acca with Sky pays just 5279/1, for those who are able to get the 15209/1 well done !
