I just saw this video throw back to a 'dead cert' from a couple of years back, and thought I'd post it here as a timely reminder that there's no such thing as free money in betting. There are good bets and bad bets based on value of course, and as it happens, unfortunately for some (and fortunately for others!) this one certainly falls into the latter category!
On 15th March 2015, in the Median Auction Maiden Fillies' Stakes at Lingfield 'Triple Dip' no doubt had some super confident favourite loving punters tearing out their hair and tearing up their betting slips as the horse faded into second place. There's no such thing as a certainty! Mercy Me won the race at 16-1.
