It was always going to be a case of, “after the lord mayor’s show” when Ascot finished: From The Dragon’s Mouth

It was always going to be a case of, “after the lord mayor’s show” when Ascot finished.

It takes a while for the adrenaline to re-settle, but you need everyday sport to appreciate the really special events.

So, as far as DragonBet are concerned, like they are fond of saying in Premier League football, “We go again.”

The emphasis is turning towards what we can do better and bigger. There’s major work going on with the site itself and in the near future you’ll be able to see the fruits of our labour.

Beyond that, we’re asking ourselves what we’re all about.

“Always a fair Bet” was a strapline used by our father, John Lovell, and it’s something we want to carry forward in spirit and in practice.

For too long, the bigger companies haven’t been fair in the size of bet they offer or the manner in which they offer it.

As a small company, one born in the betting ring, we want to bring on-course values to on-line.

That means honouring the old-fashioned spirit between punters and bookmakers. It’s a battle, but it should be fun with give-and-take on both sides.

We’re also working on our prices. DragonBet is the place you should go to bet on Welsh sport, be that your local team – because no-one else covers them – or Gerwyn Price in the darts, because he’s Welsh, so you know we’ll be the best odds.

We’ve got the best Welsh football product there is. No-one else offers the same range of markets – like first goalscorers in the Cymru Premier – or the breadth of teams that we do.

We are the first to market with early prices and have the best odds. 

In rugby, we’ll be offering outright betting on the leagues, all the way down to WRU Division Six. So, you can back “your” boys and get behind your team. 

Because that’s what gambling should be, right? Backing your opinion, playing with your head, but also cheering with your heart.

We’re here for that and we love it!

Talking of backing your opinion, we did that on Tuesday at Ffos Las.

The first race was a 4-year-old handicap. Favourites have a horrendous record in these types of races.

This time, the market leader was a horse called The Cola Kid, trained by Chepstow’s Grace Harris.

Given the record in this kind of race, and the fact that we thought he’d struggle to back up his last run over the shorter trip, we stuck our chin out.

Well, we got chinned good and proper.

The horse bolted up as did every other favourite on the night.

It was a 6-0 drubbing and as much as Ffos is a lovely place to be on a summer’s evening, it wasn’t the most fun we’ve ever had on a racecourse.

But that’s the game. We go again.

This time, it’s on-course at Leicester for their Ladies’ Night this Saturday.

We don’t yet know how the results will fall, but we do know that we’ll be offering a fair bet for anyone who wants one.

Pob lwc, whatever and wherever you’re punting on the weekend and thanks for betting with us.
