Six today

Six today, but no double stakers. William Hill are an absolute joke - offered me just £10 on Diddums in the 7.20 at Folkestone, a pathetic amount even by their standards. Funny to think they weren't restricting bets a while ago when all I was backing with them was losers. This is the same bookmaker which claims to lay horses to tens of thousands of pounds every time they're interviewed on bbc1 or c4. Pathetic.

Anyway good luck to:

Rosko Hamilton 15:40 5/1 bet365

Singeur York 16:05 4/1 bet365

Requisite Carlisle 16:25 15/2 coral

Shifting Gold Hamilton 16:50 9/2 ladbrokes

My Best Bet Folkestone 18:50 9/2 ladbrokes

Diddums Folkestone 19:20 £10 9/1 will hill £72.58 skybet 8/1

A blank today although quite a few ran pretty well, with the usual tale of photo finish defeats and horses a bit unlucky in running, as seems to be the way for poor runs,

Here's confirmation with sps:

Rosko, 11th, 9/2

Singeur, 4th, 7/2

Requisite, 4th, 13/2

Shifting Gold, 2nd, 3/1

My Best Bet, 4th, 7/1

Diddums, 3rd, 6/1


  1. It is amazing how bookmakers seem to operate. I used to be under the impression they only banned or restricted punters who won thousnad a day off them. but it seems if you are moderately succesful they will prevent you betting. What justification did they use to only lay £10 ? Did you bet online or by phone ? If they are win bets why not just use betfair ?

  2. may be they are running scared today cd lol

  3. Hi chaps

    BM yep that's just the sort of thing I'm talking about! Fantismo - I just did it online, like normal. Every bet with them for the last few weeks has been instantly "referred to trader" but today was the smallest amount yet its come back with. I genuinely had a really bad run with them, by chance, over quite a few months so the way they're now restricting me after a few pretty minor wins is really very poor in my opinion.
