On TvN Dr Turf ( John Rothfield ) made an interesting comment about midweek country meetings in Victoria. He suggested at some of the lesser meetings , where only two or three bookies turn up, that their opening markets might be "set up" so that the bookies themselves and/ or their associates can "get on" with the corporates. I have often noted thar IAS is the last of the corporates to bet on those obscure meetings..maybe IAS is a "little shy" in betting those early prices because they have been caught out ."Pitching" is obviously alive and well today as it was in the old SP days of the last century.
Dr Turf speaks a bit of sense whereas Jason Richardson, a co-host on TvN, is clueless ( see my previous posts on JR ).
