Don’t chase this – see if we can get matched at 3.6 If it doesn’t hit 3.6 it’s NO BET
Review of Day:
1st up was Flamborough Breeze we Layed very short at 1.61. These are the type of prices that give massive returns if you get it right……..I didn’t. It moved very little either way. I closed at scratch( Jargon)
The second race was at Doncaster and the horse was Frank The Slink. This sailed close to the stop loss, but came in a bit. There was strong opposition to it and I bailed out at the first opportunity. I closed at 5.3 for a small loss.
The 2nd Lay Cockney Sparrow was a trade I advised not to chase above 3.6. This was at the top end of prices I Lay, and in hindsight was too big. As I tuned in to start trading the race my money was still sitting there at 3.6, only £1.18 had been matched, but this was soon taken and the horse started being backed….and backed……and backed. Once it became very obvious this wasn’t coming back I closed at 3. I think I recorded this so I hope to put it up later. Like the Jump City trade from yesterday I switched sides and traded it down. I managed to make some of the loss back, but still ended in a loss, although substantially less than it was if I had stood and watched it move in even further.
The last trade of a very poor day was Lady Charisma. Backed at 6.2 this was still around that price come the live show. It moved in a few ticks, then back out. When the Hokey Cokey starts I usually bail out. I managed to scratch on this. It then drifted in the face of the strong favourite.
Overall today poor – questioning the wisdom of changing the time I pick the selections – I would really appreciate your feedback about this.
This is the Cockney Sparrow Trade
