The volumes today are too low to be believed. Obviously some technical issues.

Derek, you probably already know this - sorry if this is a captain obvious comment, but main action is the Gold Coast Magic Millions meeting today.

It is unbelievable what has happened to the in-play market in Australia.

It is near impossible to get a bet matched anywhere near SP now for a horse near the front. It used to be easy. There's no movement now.

I suppose it's the market becoming more efficient? But how is an expected leader which SPs at $10 reaching $3 before you can even get to the horse (i.e within seconds)? Or is the market now just dominated by people with quick vision who shape the market to their whim?

Edit: Further to what I was saying, there's just not laying pressure now to push prices back towards sane levels, so it just sits there. Take horse this week which jumped at $200 and it lead and the price fell to $6 with plenty of money there to lay at that stupid price. But why is no one taking it? I am assuming the layers have been wiped out.

Saturday starts early down-under, all excited with Randwick and Flemington being on. :D
Probably a bit late for me to add this, but main action at Gold Coast today.
I have mixed results at the big meetings but Rosehill's usually effortless for me. It's not playing ball today.
