Riding it Out:
Day two of the festival and for myself it started quite well but soon ended up being rather poor yet again. Two 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 sit at. I just cant get the cue positions I want on the lay side of the book.
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. This means I then have to scratch the remaining £400 when I don’t really want to.
On some races it wasn’t quite the case as quite fortunately I got the opportune fill. There’s a really clear different in the results for sure! A few times, I found myself frantically clicking and scratching because of the liability problem. Unfortunately it meant I started to do stupid stuff and only just about dug myself out of a big hole before the end. Far from perfect.
Hey ho, who knows what tomorrow will bring! It’s all a learning curve at this stage, at least I made some money. Surely if I continue to persevere like this it can only end in success?
I hope so…
