Not far away

Monday 25 May


Was a relatively quiet day considering it was a Bank Holiday Monday. Obviouly when Chris, The Form Guru takes the day off then there is a big reduction in the number of bets and so it was today.

SLH advised a place lay on his exchange line on Crossguard, but the liquidity on the market was non-existant for most of the day and so I left a bet in there to be matched near the off if possible. As it was the horse continued to drift and I wasn't matched - decided not to try and get matched in-running which proved a good decision as the horse was placed.

theformguru.com advised a 3 point win bet on Knockara Beau @ 4/5. Now this is not my sort of bet at all - odds-on for a start and the horse's first run over fences. As it was Knockara Beau did win, just, but I've no regrets on sitting this one out.

As for the bets I did place, there was just one winner but with two seconds at 16/1 and 10/1, as well as places at 10/1 and 7/1 it was a small losing day which might have been a lot better.

Interesting development at Optimum Racing where they have now scrapped their nonsense 1-10 pt staking plan, and also they are no longer going to include the "extra" information on the account bets. Probably a sensible change, but it doesn't inspire any confidence with all the chopping and changing that is going on. Having said that more than 6 months of losses now so they have to do something. But I'm staying out, and will not be following any of their bets in the remaining 5 weeks of my subscription.
