this is not necessarily true. if there are fewer than 8 starters in a race, but the field was reduced due to scratchings, some bookies will not pay a 3rd dividend, others always will, and other will depending on when the bet was made, and how late the scratching was.

There weren't any scratchings in the 1st race at Belmont though, there was always going to be 6 or less horses starting on the day and if Betfair made a mistake, id be very surprised. Even if they did make a mistake (which doesnt seem likely) why would you still record the tip as a win on this forum? Whoever follows your tips will not have won - so Im guessing you just recorded the win in order to keep your betting record in the positives? Just cop it on the chin mate and admit you made a mistake, i dont think anyone cares mate. Nobody is perfect.

What happened to the 20 units on Swick? Did you change your mind after the race?

lol... it was a mistake, I never put 20 units on a horse race. Have a look over this thread, and last week's one.

Re: On the punt - winners are grinners.

Would you have changed the 20 to 5 units if Swick had placed???
Lets just hope your bookie gave you back the 15 units you took from your bet after the race mate
