delicious and bite-sized!

Hi everyone,

With the imminent return of UK racing, we are very busy putting the wheels back on the Cleeve members service, so this week's wrap is short but we hope still sweet!

This week's FF pod is really worth a listen, it's not just about how an exchange works, but a much wider look at where Betfair sits in racing landscape and posits a time where on-course bookmakers may even disappear completely. There's free entry to the Tote's Flat Season Ten to Follow and the form doyens at Timeform give you four high profile horses and why they should be treated with caution.

A three-part video preview of the season with Kevin Blake and Matt 'yeehaa' Chapman will get your juices flowing as they look at the Classic generation and top older horses and there's plenty they disagree on... and there's plenty more!

We're advocating a cautious punting return to the action, I've already noticed a big ramp-up in bookies advertising, and I would have thought the offers and incentives they will be pushing at you to land your business could be of 'Cheltenham Festival' proportions. But with interrupted training schedules and unclear running plans and race dates, the first few weeks could see plenty of upsets.

We have decided to keep the Cleeve service free for everyone until at least July 1st so if you are reading this and if you're not currently a member you can sign up for free here

Bring on the action!!

Stay safe and well
The team at Cleeve
