    Looks like Stan James has stopped offering ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’..No mention of the concession on their website.

    More business for Bet365 then. If confirmed hopefully Oddschecker will remove the selling point as soon as possible.

    Maybe it’s just their website then, because they are still offering bog over the phone.

    My brother (Petski on here), received a letter from Stan James advising him that they were no longer offering him best odds guaranteed because they had noticed that lots of his winners started at bigger odds. They had previously written to him preventing him betting through the website because lots of his winners started shorter than the price he had taken. They didn’t think there was anything absurd about the complete condradiction of those two positions.

    So it is alright to take a bigger price as long as it loses? Seriously, I can only imagine this has something to do with the amount being staked – the majority of the horses I back go off at shorter odds (with some success) and I have never had any problems.

    I used to use Stan James all the time but when I started having a spell of winning bets they would only let me have £25 or £50 at most on a bet. They forgot all the losing runs I had and now I won’t use them, short sighted I think

    Let me guess – dogs at Crayford?

    I got the same letter. Luckily it doesn’t make much difference if your £3.50 each-way is at guaranteed odds or not.
