    OK – so excuse my ignorance :? :oops:

    When I’m looking on oddschecker – the odds for individual horses are shown and then there is a % for the race (e.g 148% for the 12.35 at Haydock tomorrow).

    I know that this is related to overall value of the odds for the race but could anyone explain exactly what it is?

    If you scroll down further on that link you’ll discover just how generous Irish on-course bookmakers are.

    No wonder Ellens always smiling. :shock:
