Don't overlook the BF commission, on NSW 10% unless you qualify for a reduction, 8% WA, 6% others. 10% from your winnings is a hard figure to overcome; I don't even try.

Yes, thanks Len, a good warning.

Does anyone have any opinions on taking Betfair SP? I started using it recently and have cost myself  a bit by not taking an offered price. 

It appears that Betfair SP is better than the tote and my exchange prices on the losers,  but down a bit when they win. Very annoying.

I don't know if these screen shots will be readable in Ausrace (they were in my test sending to myself), but the first shows a price for #12, Frosty Olaf of 251/26,. I clicked and filled in $50/100 (no prices shown on the ticket). Then clicked Place Bet and the following appeared.


Yes it does show that the price I would take by clicking "Confirm" is 126/14, BUT the odds displayed in the book are still 251/26, and still were when I looked again 5 minutes later. Would some at least just click without noticing the discrepancy? OF COURSE.




In the next case, #7 was scratched  at 7:38 according to Sportingbet.com (remember when Sportsbet also used to show scratching time so you could check deductions? No longer)

At 8:32 I clicked on #8, and it appeared in the ticket, but as above without prices, but still showing $2.50 place in the book.





But the ticket fills at $1.70 with $2.50 still showing in the book, and it was still showing $2.50 4 minutes later.




VERY caveat emptor, as I have warned - yes I picked up the scam, but would everyone, every time?
