I don't bother too much with automation but this week I have been having my usual fun with the in-running markets. I use nothing more than offsets really but a few times this week I have seen some strange results.
The weirdest one came today where I manually laid Red Rocco for £100 at an average of 1.96 in running. I had placed my closing order manually at 3.5 as my reading of the race suggested that he would be challenged by Find a Key who to my eyes was travelling better.
Sure enough the price started to drift out and it hit a high well above my order at 3.5. You can imagine my
when I wasn't matched for a single penny and I was facing an unwelcome and unnecessary loss. I quickly managed to lay both horses at low prices but I simply lessened the liability, I still lost on the race.
I have seen this happen a few times of late and I cannot understand what is happening. I contacted Betfair and they simply told me it wasn't possible
Really helpful as ever. I told the Muppet on the phone it was possible and it had happened and I had the time of the bet etc to prove it. He put me on hold and then said they would investigate and get back to me.
I will not be holding my breath whilst awaiting their reply!
Anyone else noticed this?
