    Just received the above-named leaflet from the Tote. It’s an offer for racehorse owners to enjoy ‘preferential’ terms for backing their own horses. The deal is:

    1. ‘Exclusive’ telephone number to allow you to ‘get on’ more quickly
    2. Guaranteed to lay your horse to lose £2,000 at the best price offered by any of the big four at the time of the bet.
    3. 10% cashback off all pool bets.
    4. Entry into ‘prize draws’

    3 & 4 sound like a complete waste of time. 2 sounds OK except the big four’s prices rarely differ by enough to make this much of an offer.

    It’s 1 that makes me laugh however. How kind of them to offer to give you a ‘special’ number so that as soon as you’ve backed your own horse they are alerted to the fact and can alter the price accordingly.

    I think I’ll stick to Betfair.

    Is that 10% cashback off all pool bets or just the exotics? Does it include the win pool and place pool?

    Placepot, super7, jackpot, quadpot and scoop6. They even limit the duration of the ‘offer’ to all bets between 6th July and 4 th October this year.

    I’ll have to buy another horse- I’d get the training fees back in Scoop 6 rebates!

    You can get 10% cashback on scoop6 bets just about anywhere if you ask nicely. No owners badge required.

    Another example of what’s wrong with our system.

    This could be interesting. My experience with the Tote is if I want a monkey or anything serious on one of mine or just one I fancy,at a published price,they keep you holding on for ten minutes,while your mobile looses signal,and then tell you they will lay you £200 at the price and the reat at SP. Rubbish firm in my book.
