Daily Profit £22.00
I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry about today to be honest. I had my little brother's birthday party today, so I knew I'd be out of the house all day and unable to bet on the horse-racing. He's only 11, so I was asked to go along and help organise things.
Last night, I was browsing our discussion site (http://handicaps.caramboo.com) and Andrew asked me to look at a horse at Hamilton today as he thought it would run well. Against my better judgement, I looked at the race and low and behold, I agreed 100% with what he said and I really, really fancied the horse to run well.
After letting Andrew know, I said he should get steamed into it today as it was a cert. I also quoted on the site that it was a cert and would win. Anyway, I left in numerous backs on Betfair over night for about £40 and none were matched by this morning.
I managed to get £4 matched this morning and I queued up another £40 at prices I thought would get matched. When I left the house at lunchtime, I had to cancel all my backs as I didn't want to risk having £40 on the horse to win and not being able to lay off.
Overall, all I could get on the horse was £4 at 14.5. I left in a lay at 8 or so, to give me my riskfree bet in running. Anyway, I just returned home to see that the horse won at 10/1.
I sent a message to a work colleague to back the horse today also, so I hope he picked up the message and did what I said.
I've just checked the discussion site and all Andrew said is 'we are fu**ing good!' Being honest, that's probably an understatement.....
If I was in the house today, I've no doubt that this would have been a £100+ win from me on that one race alone as I would have traded the horse the whole day to get a massive riskfree bet on it.
