I'm off to the dogs at Belle Vue tomorrow. I don't have the foggiest idea when it comes to betting on the dogs. Anyone have any hints/tips?

Are you doing the whole shebang by dining too?



I enjoyed eating there to it was a really good night
Forecast/tricast reverse way to go at the dogs. Thats how I've always done it anyway. I tend to stick to the tote but you're meant to get better value from the men with the boards.
Is there any open races on? I used to race and breed greyhounds.

Always a good laugh at the dogs.

Front row seats, served at the table for bets and beer...can't go wrong!

Yeah pretty awesome wasnt dear either dont think
Its all abit of a game, the previous form in the program is pretty much pointless
Its more or less pot luck, Just have a laugh and keep your bets small.

Going in two couples. Not doing the eating thing, just the drinking and betting business. Looking forward to it though!

T'was only a bit of fun for my brothers stag do.

do the eating well worth it not having to move to eat, drink or bet
Best tip i ever got was 'don't get off a bus while its moving' It's served me well over the years as i have not sustained a moving bus injury since.

Been a couple of times, pretty crap really the hare won every race........

Best tip ive got is get into the city centre as soon as you can.
Place your bets on red as you have a 50 50 chance of winning X)
i have a biased view because of my 1 experience of actually going to the dogs, but i would say bet on trap 1 nearly all of the time.

the dog in trap 1 won like 70% of the races when i went, if you think about it it actually has the least distance to travel aswell as it starts on the inside, even though the acceleration of things means thats negated in about a second...

Ah, sorry. A forecast is when you pick the dogs that you think will come first and second in a particular order. Ask for it reversed is to come in any order. Same with tricast only thats 3 dogs.

I've not been to the dogs for a few years but it used to be that all the betting offices were tote which means it's pool betting.

You tend to see a line of guys with boards like this

who tend to offer better odds.

don't fall for a sob story & come home with one like my son did last time he went with his gf, arrived on my doorstep with a fully grown huge greyhound tied to his wheelchair late one night, he is a sweetie though & apart from being sexually attracted to motorbikes & park benches, chewing anything soft he can get his paws on, chasing cats, birds & rabbits, insisting on sharing the bed @ night, wanting sardines daily & barking at men with beards, he's an absolute gem

Yes they usually are X)


Have a great time Mike - haven't been to "the dugs" for years. My dad used to take us as kids and we loved it. We had no clue about them and used to just pick name or number - I'd advise you just to do the same

That's the method I'm going for Kaks, or the ones that poo before they run x
I won £500 there last year... weirdly it was on the william hill £1 touch screen bandits instead haha.
