More action from the tipping services today, which I will come to shortly.
Managed to make £69 trading the favourites after commission, but I should have done better. Lost £130 on one race because I didn't get out for a small loss before the off and had to take a much bigger one in running when the favourite immediately traded much shorter. Should have had at least £180 from my trades today, because I played well again apart from this one blunder.
I do trade in running on the horses from time to time, but theses trades are purely price movement trades and I need to be out green or red before the off. Schoolboy error !
A total of seven horses were advised to me by the various services I subscribe to, more than I would like on one day really but that will reduce when Isiris change their operations from the beginning of next month.
Summary of results as follows:-
The 4 Isiris horses included an 11/2 second and an 8/1 each way bet which finished a staying on 4th.
Elsewhere I backed Sturbury each way at Wincanton, who was hampered by two fallers half way round and eventually finished 5th, beaten only a length for a place.
Finally at Kempton I was on Inside Story each way at 13/2, and the horse got no run at all, finally getting out far too late and finishing 5th, beaten a length by the winner. Would probably have won with a clear run, but not to be.
A loss on the advised horses of £450, could have been so much better with any luck at all but thats the way things go.
Loss on day of £381
