To cliam your winnings you do not have to have the docket.  You can go to the bookmaker and tell him what day you placed the bet.  They will probably ask you to rewrite it and if it matches will pay you.

Lads i backed 5th place in the Irish National (25/1 so done it each way) i ripped up the docket as i was always under the impression that only first 4 places are paid out. However, some guys were telling me that bookies pay out on 5th on the National is there any truth in it or does it depend who the bookie is????

Which bookie was it?

"Frenche's Bookies in Lurgan. Just found out there that he will not be paying out on 5th place but other bookies in the town did. I thought he might have even returned the stake >:(

With a handicap of 16 runners or more the normal with all bookies is to 1/4 the odds e/w on the first four. Paying 5 places is just something that some of the larger firms have brought is an incentive for big races like the nationals. There may be some firms paying first 6 on the english national!! so it is always worth a wee look at oddschecker.com before doing any bets in the big races to see what specials there are

Is Hardy still about?  Haven't seen any posts from him in a while.  Anyone remember the research he did on the English grand National Last year, that was brillant.
