An interesting set up for racing today. It’s a shame Ripon is off and Chester is only 5 minutes in front of Newmarket.
I’ve picked off a few good results from the Cambridgshire in the past but I will remember this race forever for the disaster of last year.
As we approached the key race of the day people started posting in the forum about performance issues with Betfair, we have a specific thread for this. Having done well on this race in the past, I was keen to press on but should have heeded the warnings as Betfair ground to an almost complete halt during the run up to race and stopped completely in-play; I was left hopelessly exposed. Needless to say the right horse didn’t win and I took a bit of a thumping. Betfair didn’t apologise or offer any recompense, but did dutifully continue to take 60% PC the following Wednesday, a nice gesture.
On reflection it appeared to be a heavy schedule of football and a big field / betting race that kicked off the crash last year. So this year I will be well prepared. Spare copies of everything will be running and I’ll be logged in using different connection modes.
Hopefully I can replicate results from years prior, but this is one time I am not hoping for a repeat of last year!
