Centreracing have scrapped their best tab (Ctote) product on country/provincial racing. I could understand the need to change if they were being taken for $100 of thousands, but given the maximum win on this product was only $1500, it seems they have become really big bean counters.
Centreracing have replaced the best tab price with a middle tote product. Effectively they get to pick the two lowest tabs. A vastly inferior product.
When betting on provincial racing, use Sportsbet, who offer 'Country Best' - best of Supertab and NSWtab. The important aspect about this product is they don't choose which tab price they will give you. Another alternative is IASbet's Super Price product - which is effectively the middle tote, but with a nice addition of a small bonus on top. For example If a horse paid $3 supertab, $2.90 nswtab and $2.80 unitab, IAS would probably pay $2.95.
Centreracing have also scrapped their Ctote Plus product on metropolitan racing - Centreracing will still off best tab on metropolitan racing now call CTote - but the important difference is the Plus SP (Starting Price) addition has also been scrapped.
Use Sportsbet and or Sportingbet who continue to offer best tab PLUS SP (City Best Plus and Maxi div). This addition of SP can be very handy on occasions. Thus if a horse paid $4 Supertab $4.20 NSWtab $3.90 Unitab and the Starting Price was $4.50, Centreracing would pay you $4, while Sportsbet and Sportingbet would pay $4.50.
Centreracing didn't even have the courtesy of notifying customers of these changes. It just happened on Saturday.
Centreracing have gone from being one of the best corporates to next to useless.
I guess this is not surprising given that centreracing were recently bought out by Unitab.
To all Centreracing customers, I implore you to take as much of your business away from them.
