Just reacting to an observation simonlofc made earlier about how annoying it is when you back a horse in running and the bet is suddenly matched at 1000 because the horse fell: just an annecdoal story: some years ago it was reported a punter was placing an in running bet on a horse only for it to be matched at 1000 just as he placed it because the commentator said it had fallen, a few seconds later the commentator corrected himself as it was in fact a horse with similar colours that had actually fallen. I believe the punter ended up winning around £40k. Not good for the layer/s though!
I remember that. :)

Very much in favour of removing the delay for in-play racing.

Hopefully the day when we have TV pictures for all sports with delays measured in milliseconds is not too far away.
what about a super premium charge let's say for more than 10 bets in running. Bf is capable of that too.

They're capable of scrapping the premium charge too. What's your point?

the point is that they do whatever they want. And if by chance removing delay will prove successful they will take their lion share.

This is great news as one of my systems places bets in gaps when LTP > LAY PRICE + 20 TICKS which corresponds to backers pulling their money out of the market.
You know there are all sorts of profitable systems that exploit the fact people naturally like round numbers...

Has nothing to-do with round numbers in-running, its when the horse looks like losing and the backers start pulling their money, hence the LTP is far greater than the odds on offer.

The same happens when the horse looks like winning and the LTP < BACK PRICE - 20 ticks which corresponds to layers trying to pull their money out of the market.
