Gary - I seldom bet with high street bookmakers and I dont know what the acronym stands for. (The SP bit could be 'starting price'..)
Not every bookie pays the same number of places. Most of the majors paid first six. Again, I never bet each way.

We had our usual family flutter of e/w bets on a random selection of no hopers but lucked out this time as two of them were placed - Delta Work and Santini, so over all we had a clear profit of a magnificent £5 🤣

Despite saying 'Paying 6 places instead of 4' they have returned nothing.

Did you bet to win or each way? If it was a win bet, they won't pay - your horse didn't win.

I had my usual result, ie still running.

A long way from the heady days of me picking the 1-2 of Maori Venture (28/1) and The Tsaravich (20/1) in 1987. The fact I didn't have a forecast as well still grates to this day.

I just want them all to clear the fences and not fall. I hate seeing the hastily erected tents while the race is still in progress.
Correct - the horses have no choice in the matter.

I backed Escaria Ten Jack and thought he ran a great race, in fact thought he might be a winner two out, just didn't seem to stay, maybe one for next year.

I had a bet on Liverpool to win the FA Cup or I thought I did. I placed £5.00 and got nothing back so I really do not know what I'm doing.
