With the national less than 2 weeks away…I’m thinking of backing a couple of horses this week towards the bottom of the weights. Anyone have an idea where the eventual cut-off point will be? With a max of 40 runners what weight will get in to the race?
Jonjo reckond Drombeag will be pushed to get in and he’s like 60 from the top………..but nothing stopping you from betting anything as if they don’t get in you should get your money back……..check with you bookie but I think all are the same
NRNB is a stunningly brainless option for those worried about their fancy missing the cut. Those bookies going NRNB tend to slash their prices accordingly. As FoF states, you will get your stake refunded if your selection misses the cut. ALL Bookies abide by this rule.
thanks for the advice lads…was looking to nick a few big prices on betfair before the final 40 are announced..so the NRNB lecture doesnt really help
Why not? Betfair are bookmakers and the same rules apply. It’s also true that layers with half a clue won’t be laying horses which may be balloted out at inflated prices. You might be able to work out which of the higher weighted runners will be taken out judging by their Betfair prices though.
