    I am leaving the forum.

    Partly because of certain members and partly to do with having tunnel (wrist complaint)

    I wish all of you the very best of punting and hope you have a great Cheltenham

    Take care all

    Just before you go – do you have an opinion on the Gold Cup at all?

    CH, there were a few independant shops my way that used to lay Racing Post forcast prices. That was a several years ago though, pre exchanges and when bookmakers only priced up a few races a day. I’m sure they would not have laid huge bets, but you could get a £10-£20 bet on, even in maidens & novice hurdles.

    Not sure if it would be possible now, as almost all of the markets are formed so much earlier.

    Sorry to hi-jack the FoF leaving thread !

    I have also bet a Sporting Life sp forecasts, back in the days when the paper was still going. Have also bet at Hills prices with Ladbrokes; it all depends on who you know.
    Also sorry to see FoF leave – nothing wrong with having an opinion, and he always made his pretty clear.

    Best of luck FoF – hope you’re leaving more for the tunnel and not other members. Always enjoyed your posts.

    In fact, thinking about the above, I’m fairly sure that I could bet at newspaper prices only about 10 years ago with the prices available nationwide to telephone punters..
    With a firm called Napoleon’s bookmakers, a Sheffield firm I believe; didn’t last long and were quickly taken over by another obscure outfit, but fairly certain the facility was available to all-comers if they required it?
