Hello everyone.

I've a couple of Acca's on at the moment and wanted to ask some questions as I'm close-ish to moving on to reloads.

I've placed a five fold acca as guided by PA, hoping for one leg to lose to trigger the free bet. I'm placing all my acca's with the refund lock in method, so i'll profit either way. I can certainly see how income is made through acca's, the only issue I'm having at the moment, is losing money from the exchange, which halt's the amount of offers I can do as my bank roll isn't huge. Steady progress will obviously change that in time.

I've also started reading in to underlaying and overlaying.

Now on to Horse Refunds. I know that people make money off this as evident on here. But I literally have no clue about horse racing and I am reluctant to place even a standard bet on a horse because I don't understand what the risks are and what starting price means over the lifetime of a bet. Non runners, non starters and fallers also worry me. So if anyone can help me out and give me some info on how best to approach this and when to place bets that would be super. I literally need a dummies guide lol

Thanks in advance !

I place the odd horse bet but not many. Horse odds tend to be over 4, which means you're gonna need more liability, therefore a bigger bank. Combine that with a few accas on the go, and all ya cash is taken up. Best to stick to what you're doing espesh if you haven't touched the reload section yet :)

I've been watching the horse racing markets and the odds seem to swing quite a bit even a little bit before the event.

Definitely going to stick with what I am doing for now and may come back to it once I'm sitting at about £1000 up.

Good plan. Horse odds can be scary sometimes. Although I did do Cheltenham I must admit. I don't normally touch them but I couldn't let all that free cash go by lol

Free cash is free cash, I don't blame you for jumping on that ;)

I took an early offer at ladbrokes this morning on their acca boost, first 5000 customers. Through that offer I have learnt how to lay all at betfair which is a nice little trick for future reference, £7.91 up for 5 mins work. Think I'll place a few mugs once my cash is where it needs to be as it seems like one of the bookies I want to keep in good order.

For the most part, I'm starting to realise that MB'ing is all about being highly organised and breaking the offers down into managable chunks, well at least for me lol.

Where's the best place to learn about accas and lock-ins? I assume there's some vids on PA?

Is it better to Lay All for an acca or do the lays 'live'?

Make sure if you're a beginner that you do horse offers well before the off, otherwise you'll be in a right pickle. Also, rule 4 after withdrawals can wreak havoc with horse bets. So best stick to small stakes at first.
