What was the result of your tips then and how much did you win?
One of his horses came in 2nd @14/1 (£1.25 EW stake)
One of his horses was out of the prices (£1.25 EW stake)
Total of £5 bet.
EW at 1/4 = £3.50 return (14/4 x 1.25) plus stake of £1.25 =£4.75 a total loss of 25p
If (I know, I know) he had spent his £5 on a £2.50 Forecast on that race, (picking the first two horses) he would have pocketed £335.73. Which is why I prefer forecast betting.
