Boyles you should be ashamed

    of yourselves! :mad:

    The SP Favs Placepot at Aintree today.

    Boyles are 66/1 for all 7 SP Favs to be placed (they are paying 5 places
    in the 3.40 today).
    Taking Paddy Powers place only prices for the current shortest priced horses which wouldn't be great, it works out at 145/1 :eek::eek:.
    PP are 5 places in the 3.40 as well.
    Yes, you have to back a named horse instead of the Fav but the odds do not reflect this.
    I've had previous conversations with Boyles about their pricing on this market.
    They are always lowest in the market and the answer back was "it's a trader decision and they work it out based on what they expect the SP of the horses in the races to be!"
    How do they know (a) what horse will be the Fav & (b) what price it will be?
    Even taking the prices after the races have finished, it nearly always works out bigger.
    It's a joke and they are taking their punters for a ride.
    The problem is most of their punters won't know it.
    If they follow their previous quotes, the price will be cut before
    the off of the 1st race as well.

    Rant over.....................(for the moment).

    Same again today.

    Boyles 66/1 Aintree SP favs.
    The lowest priced horse in all 7 races on PP works out at 90/1.
    Guessing the Boyles calculator has a max price of 66/1 on it.

    "The problem is most of their punters won't know it."
