Racing Trades, Preview Video & Evening Review: 5th April

I have money in the queues at all these prices. If ALL of my money is not matched the trade goes down as no trade. If it goes significantly lower, I will cancel the trade if the momentum goes against it.

Back Trades

2:10 Leicester Posh Bounty: 3/1 4.1 – stop loss 5.1

4:05 Leicester: Greensward 11/2: 6.4  stop loss 8

4:30 Sedgefield: Favourable Fellow 11/2: 5.5 stop loss 7

That’s all the trades

Evening review:
I am really so this is a very quick review. Mrs MG has insisted I take her out tonight.
Absolute nightmare with both the trades that were matched. Unfortunately Favourable Fellow was not and it was a big mover. Typical. Apologies for the rubbish advice.
On the positive side there were a few good movers in the video preview.

The warning about Scargill proved right in the Posh Bounty trade. Wish I had listened to myself! Grrrrrr

The highlights were:
Super Duty 6.4 to 5.4
Ballymartin King traded below the 8.6 before bouncing back out.
Heyward Boy drifted badly during the live show. It was overbet and the price bounced.
Croco Bay went from 10.5 to 8.8. It won! Formulation was about where it started
Smoothtalkingrascal went off at 9.5, it drifted slightly. But it won as well.
Mists of Time 4.5 after the withdrawal of Azelle into 2.90
Exotic Man 6.6 into 4.2
Mombassa 4.2 – 3.7 – The “weak” fav High Troja came in too. 3.15 into 2.9 – it won
West End Lad 6.6 – eventually drifted slightly to 7.2 – but it won.

Shame I wasn’t trying to pick winners!

Back Trades

4:10 Wetherby: The Panama Kid: 7/1 8.4 stop loss 10.5 AMENDMENT 7.4 stop loss 9.2

5:30 Kempton: Silver Fawn 7/1 8.4 stop loss 10.5

Preview Video:

There are a couple of things so say about the first runner. After yesterdays great results my over confidence bought me straight back down to earth. I broke one of my own rules about chasing down prices. I amended the original 8.4 to 7.4. This was a mistake as it soon bounced back. However, in the end it didn’t make too much difference as the runner drifted back past our original stop anyway. One to forget, but a lesson retaught.

The 2nd runner Silver Fawn in the 5:30 at Kempton looked ok, but 10 minutes out stated to drift. The market was very thin at this point, it did rally and I managed to close at 8. There was a non runner in this race which reduced our price to 7.34 once the reduction factor had been applied. It went on to win the race in a photo, the 2nd placed horse being matched at 1.02 in play. It takes £27 off the total, but still £144 up for the week.

You may notice in the results table I have started to add the place SP. I did some back testing of the placed results since the beginning of March. Backing every selection in the Betfair place market at SP gave a profit of 21.29 points. The April total is within the Stats section in the bottom of the result. Currently + 0.28 pts. I am not recommending you back them or anything like that. But it’s worth keeping an eye on.

Weekly review

Bloody hell – That was a week and a half!

We started the week well with £150 worth of wins on the racing trades. On Wednesday I added the subscription box and launched what I am calling “The Inside Track” (swanky eh?) In case you missed the post I made earlier in the week, I decided to create something that enabled me to keep my readers up to date with some trades I did not want to plaster all over the internet. These “updates” are only going out when I have something worthwhile to say. You’ll all know by now I am a terrible waffler. If you watched my videos you will be sick of my West Midlands accent, constant sniffing and listening to the drivel that I speak (and type). I don’t want to sending out junk into your inbox. I sent out 2 messages this week highlighting potential market moves in some Football matches. On Thursday morning I said that Spurs looked like they would come in further against Inter. Also to watch the Over 2.5 price. There were 9 ticks profit in that. My (late) Friday night update said I fancied Liverpool and Newcastle to move in. A 2 tick loss on the Liverpool price was made up for by Newcastles’ 7 tick gain. I have over 100 who have subscribed so far. That has really shocked me. Have you signed up yet? If not why not!

The 2nd part of the week started on Wednesday with a bad day for the racing trades, a loss of £50 and a small gain of £8 on Thursday. Friday’s £70 got us back on track.

All through the week I have been adding to my trading videos. The feedback I am getting from these is phenomenal. I will be carrying on with these as long as you guys want to see them. Many are telling me that they are learning lots. I’m so chuffed about that. Thursday and Friday are busy days for me preparing my Football trades for the weekend. I had added another couple to my Portfolio bets during the week. BTTS and DNB. I will be adding more and more of Portfolio trades as we go along. As I type this on Sunday evening with 1 3pt trade to go (Lazio DNB 3pts) this weeks trades will make a minimum of 4.82 pts and a potential of 10.22 pts if Lazio win and 7.82 if it’s a draw. Adding to the 4.1 pts profit from last week. It’s ticking along nicely.

Saturday bought some reality to everything. I have already said too much about Saturday’s site crash and want to draw a line under it. Like I said I will not be posting up my racing trades daily anymore, but if I fancy something I’ll certainly give you the heads up. A couple of great suggestions have come from my followers about putting something together to help some of the newer traders protect themselves form disasters like this. I’ll have it as a priority. I took out a complete loss for the Racing trade while Betfair was down. It seemed like the fair thing to do. Even with that the trades made £80 for the week. I never wanted to be a tipster, but I hope you can see what is possible with some bank management and discipline. We will be visiting this in some detail soon.

Moving forward. The best week of the year for many of us. It’s Christmas everyday for us Racing traders. I never do as well as i should do. But I love everything about the festival. So a busy old week ahead.

I just want to say I do this for free. There is no agenda, no charges, no catch. I have a couple of affiliate links that give me a small commission if you click on them and then decide to subscribe. If you want the products and don’t want me to profit to help pay for the upkeep of the blog, just google the product and go there from google. I couldn’t care less. I will only endorse products and services that I use myself. You can clearly see that from my posts. My integrity is something that is  scared. I will not sell out just to get a few quid.

Have a great week, come back soon. Thanks so much to all of you that have taken the time to make comments. They are a real inspiration to me to deliver even better content for you.

Cheers MG
