Friday afternoons in the office after 4.30pm are usually a bit of a write-off for me as my mind wanders onto Saturday's racing!
Today, Andrew dropped me a note to see if I fancied any to trade for this afternoon. I'd have to trade on my Mobile though, so I needed to be sure they would run well or shorten pre-race.
I had a quick look at 3 races.
4.35 - I fancied Averoo. Horse was heavily backed pre-race giving me £57 riskfree bet for a £20 stake and the horse bolted in. Nice start!
4.45 - I fancied Icannshift. I put £10 on at 19, laid £10 off at 14 and the horse traded at below 3 in running before finishing 3rd. I didn't leave a low lay!
5.15 - I was really sweet on Shabahar. It went on a massive drift with 15 minutes to race time. I put £100 on at 8.4 and laid £100 at 7.2. Easy.
It then drifted to 11.5 before the off. I put another £20 on at 11.5 and laid of at 9.
I had £200 riskfree on it to win. The horse was very, very unlucky and finished 4th after not getting a run in the last 2f. I made £7 in running by leaving a large lay at 5.2 and I got partly matched.
Overall, 3 races, 3 riskfree bets and 3 horses that ran really well. Easy as ABC.....
To meet my target of of setting a new monthly P&L record, I'll only need to aim for £50 of profit tomorrow! Bring it on....
