Are they allowed to back or lay a selection when they see a consistant winning account holder having a bet on that selection?December 28, 2006 at 19:43 #34674bluechariotMember

I doubt it very muchDecember 28, 2006 at 20:14 #34675
They are not allowed to bet now. They were allowed for the first couple of years. I actually got to know one of their phone guys well when calling from the course. He would call me back to check early market prices and tell me about commission bets he had to place.December 28, 2006 at 20:14 #34676barry dennisMember

is the pope a catholic?December 28, 2006 at 20:20 #34677
We can always rely on some people to know of anything dodgy. Some people only play for big money when its bent.December 28, 2006 at 20:26 #34678
Reason I ask…I have an 87% strike rate on my last 300 lays all at SP 10/1 and below. My last 18 lays I couldnt get matched for love nor money at my usual requested overlay price. If BF employees are laying what I’m trying to lay I will give up at his game for good. I hope its just a blip we’ll see……..December 28, 2006 at 20:44 #34679
I really dont think the Betfair staff will be involved in this unless your are playing for big money.December 28, 2006 at 20:47 #34680
If you were getting a few quid an hour and you spotted someone being successful
Would you be jumping in front of that person?December 28, 2006 at 20:50 #34681yeatsParticipant

Have you ever noticed the late suspension of races when there’s possibility of stewards to enable someone to mop up all the big prices about the runner up, who else could it be?December 28, 2006 at 20:50 #34682
Barry Dennis, could you expand on your comment please…December 28, 2006 at 21:24 #34683
Take no notice of BD – he has his own agenda
<br>Don’t know if your stake size will allow, but if you think BF employees are doing this, withdraw your funds and use other exchanges
<br>I didDecember 28, 2006 at 21:40 #34684
Thanks EW, I’ll continue to monitor closely for a while, I lay in running quite a bit and in fairness a lot of those 18 were held up although not all of them!
As for Barry Dennis, what a pity a so called professional cant put more than 2 sentences of commonsense together in the off moments when he’s not shooting his smart alec mouth off. Thank God I dont have to bet with the likes of that any more.December 28, 2006 at 21:58 #34685
In running, your up against the fast pic guys, on course guys, on course bookies etc,
BF have now a new system i believe, where if you bet 3k plus, they will place your bets for you, so these will probably have priority of getting into the system over you or i
<br>They seem to be looking after the big guys at the expense of the small, but i’m afraid the big guys can’t operate without the small fry
Hence you see people like H Findlay asking for smaller commish for everyoneDecember 28, 2006 at 22:12 #34686barry dennisMember

Just like the TV appearances, plenty of bluster and little substance.
