Adelaide/Brisbane bookmakers smarten up your act
There is absolutely no excuse for having starting
prices consistently totalling 120% to 130% like at the Doomben and Victoria
Park meetings last Saturday. Those sort of markets are far too tight. For reasonably fair markets starting prices should total a maximum,
I repeat, a maximum of 115%.
Have a look at the table below showing starting prices for Saturday, May 26. There is no way possible starting prices totalling 130% can be justified in the seventh race at Doomben, a Group 3 Handicap with all horses having disclosed form.
Similarly what are the Victoria Park bookmakers doing with a starting price market totalling 130% in the sixth race, an Open Handicap, with once again all horses having disclosed form?
Adelaide and Brisbane bookmakers, if your aim is to lose business you're doing a fine job. Smarten up your act and put up better prices.
