    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

    On a back-of-the-envelope calculation I’d say 10-7 will be borderline.

    Judging by today’s RP, I wasn’t far out- I’d say Joe’s Edge is 50-50 to get in, those below him are struggling.

    Paddy Power are NRNB. Best option if you’re worried about your selection getting in.

    Edit – I see FoF has already mentioned NRNB – I should have read this less than extensive thread more carefully :oops:

    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.

    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.

    It is if the horse is declared at the final declaration stage. You can usually read which ones missed the cut in the racing press a few days after decs.
