Wasnít breathtaking today. I really think Cheltenham to Aintree takes a lot out of horses these days. Most of them have been on the go for 7 months and most of the good ones run so little thereís almost a mini bounce factor.

Was a serious case of Seconditis for me today, 3 seconds. Would definitely look for some good ground horses in the National.

Anyone else getting bookies account restrictions.
They are really tightening up. 2 closed inside a couple of months ive had for years. it's not as if am cleaning up, just ticking over more than anything.

My Ladcrookes account was limited to pennies years ago. My Betfred account I use for small bets and throw a few big priced no hopers in .  I use different shops at different times of day as I know a couple of lads who have bets referred to traders for having the cheek to win. Apparently some shops use facial recognition now as well

I know some bets get flagged so steer clear of them. had WH for over 20yrs restricted to coppers a few weeks ago, now bet365, over 20yrs with them as well. I think some of the bookies are in trouble, cutting right down on promotions and chopping accounts who don't deposit regularly.

If you only use certain accounts when they do some sort of special offers and boosted prices, rather than betting daily with them tend to do that sort of thing. Had that happen to me with a Betway account.

I have about 10 accounts so I can always take the best odds and extra places etc. I know what you mean, I dont just use these bookies when they give me a free bet. just mentioned they've chopped the promotions as it shows they are tightening up.

I had 3 or 4 accounts closed in the space of a few months a couple of years ago.

Advice online was to bet direct on the bookie's website rather than via an odd comparison site (I was betting through the Racing Post site)

Seems to have helped.  Only the one closed since.

Like you, my accounts are just ticking over.  Never put money in or take any out

Very informative conversations there. I hate the online mechanism purely because I rarely withdraw my winnings. I had accounts years ago but closed them for that reason. I had to go back during the pandemic and have stayed with it for the moment. Don't bet so much theses days which helps.

Hadn't realised b365 only applied best odds guaranteed if bets were placed after 10am on the day, put my bets on last night and just had 9/4 on Pic D'Orhy as opposed to the 4/1 it went off at, how annoying.

They used to have it on bets the day before, maybe they are getting tighter, like some of the other bookies.  :no

Question for you racing enthusiasts- what software do you use when looking through form, h2h, pedigree etc? Iíve always used RI which I find quite clunky, especially for the price! Thereís that many different sites/systems to access itís hard to chose.

As Gerry said.

However, Raceadvisor.co.uk is really useful IMO for general form reading and other data.

Cheers gents, I have the ones youíve mentioned other than Raceadvisor.co.uk but still always go back to RI, Iíll check that website out as Iíve not heard of it before.

RI being Raceform Interactive, Racing Postís paid for version. It takes some getting used to (as I said before, quite clunky) but once you have the hang of itís not bad - much quicker than Racing Post site but it just feels a bit outdated (especially considering you have to fork out for it).

Ah ok thought it was that just couldnít remember the name. Iíve looked at it a few times over the years, so interesting to hear from someone who has it. Always seemed like it was quite a clever tool for putting together some of your own queries such as quickly being able to identify things like if their are any runners who love soft/heavy for example running that day, or is it not as intuitive as that?

I mostly use the info supplied on the betting sites which is from the Racing post/Sporting life originally.  Then search an individual horse on the Racing Post if I want to find out more.

You can get info such as % wins on all grounds, which I always found strange you canít on RP! Itís definitely better than RP IMO as you can get the same info and more but to be honest I donít think it justifies the fee, hence why Iím looking at changing. It feels like they havenít invested into it for years, all the form is there but itís like running a program from a floppy disk!  :lmao

Quite interesting that all of you are just mentioning the free sites, RP, ATR etc. I think Iíll have to try getting used to doing this too, save my money for the betting  ;D

Any reason you get the info from the betting sites as opposed to Racing Post, if ultimately you end up back at RP anyway to delve into a certain horse? Itís never really crossed my mind to look at the info on bookies sites, maybe somewhere else to look into

Mostly familiarity for me with the betting sites and having info in one place so I can judge the market at the same time. Sky Bet are my preferred choice for easy and clear content under each horse. Even if I don't actually place the bet with them 😉 I don't actually spend too much time researching so it's just quick and easy for me.
