All bets were off yesterday at Southwark Crown Court after Neil Taylor, 22, of Harlow in Essex was found guilty of fiddling with computers at The Racing Post to show that he had won at the dogs. The scam -- a mini modern-day version of the con made famous in The Sting -- could have netted Taylor the grand sum of £800 if he hadn't been found out, the court was told. Taylor targeted greyhound races running at tracks where no bookmakers were present. The results should have been fed directly to The Racing Post -- then the sole source of results of these minor races for punters and bookies -- and entered into its main computer before being printed in the paper the next day. But Taylor managed to intercept these files before they reached the paper's central system, editing them so that it looked like his dogs had won. A spokesman for the The Racing Post said that he had no knowledge of anything like this happening before and said that security procedures had been tightened up. Taylor was sentenced to 180 hours' community service. Register Tip: That's Life, 2:40 at Lingfield ®
