The prevailing thought for a long time especially when bookies were standing en masse was that 25% of the win div for a place was approaching value....... Chariots ?

Correct Rocket 300% for a place percentage is the equivalent of a 100% win market.Gilga in my opinion there is no formula that relates the place price to the win price. On many occasions by virtue of the barrier a draw a horse may be a strong place chance but ...

He is number 1 ruckman for receival of free kicks as well Det. He needs to be careful he is turning into a Sonny Walters playing for frees and we all know what’s happened there. Think he got 3 maybe four on the weekend. Still a champion player though.
