Had a three leg place multi yesterday at the tab on Newcastle and Donald. $50 quid at about $9.50. Get the first two legs and get to the last leg at Donald in the last race and have the 4 for the place in a 8 horse field. There is a late scratching, reducing the field too 7 and the horse runs 3rd. You guess it no dividend. I would expect a least a partial dividend or a refund of original bet. Is this normal practice amongst tabs? It just seems like Robbery too me.

If there's a late scratching at the gates and the field is reduced to 7, they still pay third dividend on the tote. Of course the dividends get slashed considerably but l'm sure they still pay for 1,2,3. I don't think fixed odds is any different? You would just cop a deduction on the price you've taken. And in your case, a multi bet shouldn't affect anything. I don't understand why you haven't been paid.

I would definitely keep hold of the ticket and try and get some clarification. There's a tab twitter help page where you can fire in the questions and they respond usually within the hour. I can shoot through a question for you if need be.

Ive had a look at the rules of fixed odds and they don't specifically cover this scenario.

I'm not sure how to post pictures on here so let's see if the following link works.

Keep an eye on that page. The tab will reply by the end of the day.

Thanks for that MJB, I'm in WA so not sure if they use the same bookie as Melbourne for their fixed odds. The TAB normally try to distance themselves from the Bookie they use and say sorry cant help you its not us but the bookie.

Oh of course. That would make things tricky.

Who operates the betting over there? Is it Ozbet?
