Evening Review – Racing Trades
Easter Monday is the busiest racing day of the year. I am knackered! But it’s not the same as being knackered after doing a 12 hour shift in a factory or Hospital, so no moaning here.
First up was Risk in the 3:05 Plumpton. As you will see in my preview video (part 1) I have my money up in the queue at 5.3. It was not taken, except for a few quid. When I got to the live show Risk was trading at 4.3. I cancelled the trade. I have said quiet often, but am happy to repeat myself. We are momentum trading a trend with these trades. If the price drops that far, then swings around so the momentum is against us, when the trade gets taken we are in a bad place. That’s why I cancelled. It goes down as a no trade. Just as it would if it had steamed into 2.1. In fact we had a horse like that last week.
Second up was Riddlestown at Fakenham. We were on at 6. A great start to the month, as it was nicely backed into 4.1 for an ace profit (does anyone say “Ace” these days???) of £44. It won too!
Next was Huntingdons’ 3:40 and Ardmaddy. early doors was 6.8 I closed at 5.1 for a nice £33. So far so good…….
Lady MacDuff in the 4:00 at Redcar was a horse I had high hopes for, I bigged it up this morning. Backed at 8.8 (Did you spot the 10/1 on offer at a couple of bookies?) it actually went as low as 6, before bouncing. There was a non runner with a reduction factor of 3.3% reducing our price to 8.5. I could have got out at 8 but messed it up and ended up closing at scratch.
The last runner was 30 mins later in the 4:30 at Redcar. Morocco. It didn’t really move very far all day. I eneded up closing as it started to drift at 5.6 for a £5 loss.
Overall a good day with a profit of just over £70.
Video Previews – Highs and lows
I think it’s a worthwhile exercise to quickly go back and look at what I said this morning and see what actually happened. This is good practice. I have done this since I started betting seriously. What it does is refines your technique. If you think one thing and something completely different happens you need to go back and put it right so it doesn’t happen again. Of course it’s not a simple as that, but it defiantly helps. If you are doing stuff right. Do it again!
