Thank you for your quick reply heres a screenshot. My balance is 2.98, but I put in £75, so the liability has been deducted. I just cant seem to find the bets2.jpg

If you go back to the exchange and go to that rate and click on Open Bets on the right does it appear then?

If not then it's worth jumping on LiveChat

No.

Why have you backed them on betfair? You back at the bookie (coral) and lay at Betfair. It also looks like you have laid the bet twice for some reason

Yeah I layed the bet, but because I didnt see anything on my history, and my liability went back up. I assumed it didnt go through. I layed the bet. the guy on the phone said I could exchange the back bet.

You were lucky there. Kommander Kirkup finished 4th in the 12.50 race at Southwell. If it had won, you'd be £70 odd quid down.

Next time on Betfair, if you've placed a lay bet on there - it will show up in the race under "open bets(1)" showing the number of bets placed on that particular race.

Also, Coral welcome offer is "bet £5 get £20 in free bets (4 x £5 free bets)".

You appear to have laid too much at Betfair for this offer.
