    We all know that getting on a Pricewise selection at the advised prices is next to impossible, but I am under the impression he has put up Colorado Rapid today and quoted the 7/1 available at Ladbrokes.

    I happened to be looking at the prices Ladbrokes had up for today at just after midnight, and the Johnston horse was already in to 5/1.

    So what is the point of Segal quoting prices at which, evidently, it’s less than impossible to get?

    The bookies will push their prices out again this morning.

    Also, the web prices the night before are virtually irrelevant re Pricewise in the sense that the prices with which he operates will be available to early-morning telephone punters and then from 10am-10.15 for betting shop punters.

    I have something like 16 internet accounts but still occasionally find I have to jump into the car to get a price in a shop knowing it’s contracted during the course of the previous evening.

    It’s a b*gger but at least I’m still getting the price.

    Apparently there was 12s generally and 14s with stan james last night about Lion Sands. Complete and utter b*****ks
    , the horse never above 8/1 with any of the bookies.

    I wouldn’t say it’s a waste of time following Tom.  But it is a waste of time expecting the bookies to have the quoted price up for anyone other than their most intrepid early morning customers.  Joe Bloggs has to drink the dregs.  I wouldn’t even bother personally, there has to be more play in finding something to beat the selection.

    Actually its my understanding that Ladbrokes don’t hold many of their prices now due to shops opening at different times. None of their Saturday prcies are guaranteed beyond 9:00AM – my boss rang up to ask if this was unfair to customers but they said now that shops open up at 9:00am and even 8:30am it wouldn’t amke sense to hold them to a particular time.

    Ladbrokes, don’t bother their ass putting morning prices on their text service, an obvious ploy to get punters to go to their shops, by putting the prices up on their text service, punters would realise that their prices are even worse than Corals {and that takes some doing} and go elsewhere.<br>You can’t beat Ladbrokes when it comes to try and fool the punter.<br>You don’t fool me, but by golly you fool most of them, you assholes.

    Coral’s aren’t bad. They were big and bold on a few selections in the pricewise table today.

    As always, I followed these blindly and copped a nice profit, including 25/1 and 33/1 winners.:cool:

    Lion Sand’s was 11’s with us early on.  Thing with Pricewise is there are so many mugs who follow in blindly that the price is only available for 10 or 15 minutes at most in the mornings – particularly on a Saturday.  You really can’t get up at 9.20am and expect to still see the quoted prices when you call up.

    My apologies then but by about 8pm he was no bigger than 8s on BF. The thing is still the price isnt there when lemmings are buying there papers or checking it on the RP.

    The people who want the 11/1 have to get up early Money On.  Say like many you get the paper at 7.30-8am there’s plenty of time to check out the Pricewise horse and back it when the call centres open at 8.30-9am

    The trouble with Pricewise is that it is inevitable, I guess, that the bookies are going to see money for his selections which unbalance their books. No surprise then that they should adjust them.

    As far as the RP goes – very difficult for them also. Pricewise is clearly a popular aspect of the paper but it is also clear that the prices quoted are often unnattainable. Victims of it’s own success over the years I suppose. It’s definitely been the predominant tipping column in racing history. hasn’t it?

    Hi gang

    What’s that… "how did PRICEWISE do last year?"

    http://www.horseracinginformation.co.uk … sindex.htm<br>Certain respected tipsters are worth listening to, but ultimately one must make your mind up.
