Unaware of any set formula and i think its discretionary but both list the deduction as 7 cents for the place.Tabtouch were 7 and Sportsbet 6 for Bet 365 announced early they were deducting 6 cents. It appears that the deduction was 6% of the winnings on...

The stakes at GP midweek have dropped to "sub prime" levels so perhaps it is time to end the pretense and end the "prime" furphy totally. In order to fill programs at GP & Pinjarra regularly with 9 races of fields approaching capacity the races at the...
