Gambled to the end......

Daily Profit £161.56

I thought I’d do a quick post tonight. I traded 2 horse races tonight and won £14.42. I was annoyed with the way I traded my first race back as I ‘bottled’ it when my horse went on a drift. I gave up backing it at 13 after having £200 win at average odds of 12. I laid off at 11 and it went off at 7 at the off.

If I had followed my instincts, I would have had over £1,000 riskfree on it and I would have won £100 at least. As it turned out, I managed to win £14. The other race had a small riskfree bet which I got quite easily but it ran poorly, so it was a break-even race.

I managed to win £147 from Tiger Woods winning the golf. As you’ll see from the photo below, I stayed true to my principles and gambled to the end. I was determined to stick with Rocco all day long and I didn’t lay off anything until he was 1.5, so I have no complaints.

I feel like it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster over the past week and I’m looking forward to getting back into a routine of trading a few races at night if possible.

Thanks for the recent comments by the way and it’s nice to see that some people are reading the blog and enjoying it.
