TAB’s Three French Meetings Today

Tellytrack screening two flat meetings only

TAB will offer betting on three race meetings from France today, although Tellytrack will be screening the two flat race meetings only – the afternoon meeting at Saint Cloud and the evening event from Pont De Vivaux.

Online and telephone betting into commingled pools will be available on the harness race meeting at Vincennes.

Saint-Cloud hosts an excellent 11-race card. The Prix Tourbillion tops the programme and looks especially interesting with impressive debut winners Enzel and Dawn Intello clashing, while Alfareeq and Mare Australis add further intrigue.

The first is off 11h10 and all races will offer commingled Win, Place, Quinella and Swinger pools (if there are less than seven runners, an Exacta pool is offered instead of the Swinger and Quinella).

There will be a Place Accumulator on the meeting starting on Race 5 and running through to Race 11, and a Jackpot on Races 8 to 11.

The meeting at Pont De Vivaux comprises eight races with Race 1 off at 17h10. The same range of commingled pools will be offered with a Place Accumulator on Races 2 to 8 and a Jackpot from Races 5 to 8.

The harness meeting at Vincennes also comprises eight races with Race 1 scheduled for 16h25.

Of course, for the early risers there were nine Australian meetings on which to bet.

Wednesday holds some great opportunities for bettors with a fantastic meeting at Chantilly in France and a nine-race card at Happy Valley.

Chantilly, one of France’s most picturesque tracks, stages the pick of the action. The Gr3 Prix Texanita, moved from Maisons-Laffitte, is the standout event of a 10-race card.

Keep an eye out for Alocasia, who looks a smart prospect.

    It’s nice to have these bets but again what’s happening to the carryovers from these meetings and for goodness sake why can’t the carryovers go on to the next race, is it their inability to think that has got us into this mess

      This is an ongoing bone of contention, as you know, Rian
      TAB response to us last month:
      In terms of carryovers currently, TAB’s policy remains unchanged. They are accumulated in same bet-type stockpiles until the amounts are big enough to get the interest of customers and then used around month-end, when customer participation is at a peak. That simultaneously gives us the opportunity to ensure such carryovers are fully marketed and communicated.

    I know Ed thx, been following this argument for long now, but with the rescue plan will this remain the same, old same old
    What is the data on the success of this rescue plan

    1. Editor says:

      We have tried to get some intelligent comment from various sources
      Seems like its way too early to tell. Pure speculation.
      Your guess as good as ours, Rian
