    Will you be having a flutter?

    I'll be putting a bet on for me and one for the dog tomorrow. It's the only time we will bet on a horse.

    I reckon, after his experience this morning, Dayvo should have a flutter on Cloudy Lane :evil:

    Don't know what the odds are, Noodley, but could you put a tenner on it for me! I'll pay you back: honest! xx(

    I've never really gambled, although when I was in Australia, my mate had a greyhound, Sir Packer, which kept me comfortably in beer money for six months. :evil:

    Don't generally bother to put a bet on, but I have a couple of nags in the works sweepstake. Then again, looking at their form, they're probably three legged donkeys:sad:

    Having just had a look at the field, Snowy Morning would have been more appropriate! :evil:

    Aye, I saw that as well - I may have a punt on that :smile:

    I have quite a good record to carry over from C+.

    First two years ago and second and third last year...but don't listen to me - no don't :smile:

    Its the only horse bet we put on,we go 50 pence each way on one each,i think that means if it comes in the first three,my wife puts em on for us,as i havnt got a clue how to,but its become a yearly ritual:smile:

    Did you do the £5 each way on Snowy Morning as I requested nicely?
    Don't know what the odds were, but I bloody hope you did! ;)

    Just saw them on BBC's webpage. 16-1.
    Hmmm, that's a tidy sum. I'll pm you with my bank acct. details so you can pay it in; keep £25 for yourself! ;)
