    After failing again with the placepot and seeing that it paid £500 odd quid I am going to have a rethink for tomorrow. What strategy does everyone use for the placepot. Is there a place banker for tomorrow because I can’t see one.

    3 of the races look horrible as well; help desperately needed; I’ll show you mine if you show me yours;) .

    I’d bank this one, FSL, and that’s Mine.  

    I’m not MJ Kinane’s greatest fan, (he cost me a fortune when he contrived to get Statue of Liberty beaten in the Sussex a few years back), but he has some choice rides later today.

    Mine was mighty impressive in the Bunbury, is a well drawn specialist at the trip, who loves Ascot. Simple enough.:biggrin: (He says!)

    What effect does pricewise have on the placepot? The two in the international stakes he’s gone for were going to be two of mine but mug punters will pile into them for their placepot will they?

    I never use anymore than 64 bets in the placepot and I tend to keep them to small stakes, I landed the Thirsk one today…

    <br>see my website for details :)

    Pricewise has gone for Mine and Dabbers Ridge in the big handicap:( , Hearts Cry in the KG and Steel Blue in the 3:15 at York.

    I’ve decided Armigerent is my banker for the placepot because he’s proven over the distance, is from in form stable that is +93pts to level stakes at Ascot, ground should be fine and has the best form. If this does not place i will be fit to explode. My placepot is lined up as so:

    4x1x2x5x2x4

    I don’t want to take any chances in the big handicaps or the tricky looking 2yo race. If anyone can save me money here post/pm me beofre 9:30 as I’ve got a shift at Ladbrokes (today) while 3:30.

    Maxilon Mine is in my placepot for that race – 2,5,9,13,17. I’m not totally convinced it will place though becuase it needs look in running, may not run two good races in a row and every other bugger will be on him.:o

    Sorry – only just seen this!

    Played 48 x 10p lines – just in case you are interested in taking these into account for your Quadpot, my perm was…

    2:00 – Mo, Paceman, To The Max<br>2:35 – Norisan (?!)<br>3:10 – Love On Sight, Scarlet Runner<br>3:45 – Just James, King’s Caprice (???)<br>4:20 – Electrocutionist, Maraahel<br>4:55 – Blue Java, Royal Dignitary

    Good Luck!

    I did have a bet on Dabbers Ridge yes though it was a mad rush to get it on.:cool:

    Sadly my "banker" for the placepot disappointed me and that was that. At least Be The Tops won – Hannon always seems to win with his so called second string.

    I haven’t done a placepot since William Hills switched to those pathetic lottery style betting slips, but I did my first ever placepot online today, and I thought I was bloody unlucky.:biggrin: <br>I banked on Hurricane run, doubled up in the first leg with Dijeer and To The Max, and doubled up again in the 4th leg with Dabbers Ridge and Marching Song.<br>In the second leg I had the 10/1 winner Satulagi, and in the last I had the joint fav Roman Maze.

    The only leg I failed on was the third leg, and my two horses finished 4th and 5th.

    Unfortunately that is what often happens with the placepot, and you only need one leg to go wrong to do your money. But I thought I did most of the hard work.
