Cheltenham – Treading Water

Posted on Posted in Cheltenham Festival

Day two of the festival and for myself it started quite well but soon ended up being rather poor yet again…. 2 steps forward and 2 back! very frustrating…. you’ll see below in a few of the Cheltenham races I had pathetic small profits, I cant help but feel I could do with a bigger bank! reason being at the prices they constantly are I just cant get the cue positions I want on the lay side…. often I end up with say £500 on the back side and a pathetic £100 on the lay… by the time my £500 gets gobbled up my lay has been matched but the way the market has changed have to scratch the remaining £400… on the races I didn’t really suffer with this you can see I did a bit better, also a few times I found myself frantically clicking and scratching because of the liability problem meaning a few times I started to do stupid stuff and only just dug myself out of a big hole.

Hey ho, who knows what tomorrow will bring!!

  1. Yeah, I’ve learnt that having a bigger bank is a necessity when trading these big meets. At times, it takes so long to get matched that bigger stakes are the only way to compensate.

    I’ve flung everything I’ve got at it this year (about 3.5k). Of course, the risks are bigger too, I lost -£45 in the last race *groan*

    All the best tomorrow 🙂
