 By Randy Rann in Horse Racing

17 December 2014 22:49

Three longshots to hopefully bring a bit of festive cheer. Well it's that time of year when giving rather than receiving is the right thing to do, and that giving comes at a price! The real festive period is nearly upon us and after a last minute present shopping spree, enough food purchased to feed an army, a booze run and the dreaded tax bill that needs attention. . . . . . .... more

Laying Experiment - Analysis

 By garethp1981 in Horse Racing

15 December 2014 20:31

One problem I have here is that I do not have details of all the market prices at various stages on Betfair, I only recorded the prices for the horses that I layed. What I do have are the SPs according to the website Sporting Life. The prices of the horses on Betfair are of course not the same as this, so I can’t compare apples with oranges.... more

 By garethp1981 in Horse Racing

7 December 2014 13:11

Although I actually started the experiment proper on Tuesday (on Monday I outlined how it would work but didn’t make any selections), circumstances now dictate that I will have to finish the experiment today. I now have a commitment on Monday morning which means that I won’t be in a position to make my selections then, using the market prices from Betfair.... more

Balder Success - Lay Selection For Saturday

 By garethp1981 in Horse Racing

6 December 2014 13:46

Friday’s laying pick was called Xaarcet (pronounced Ex-Are-Set apparently) in the 14. 50 at Exeter; I layed the horse at 5 and although the price to back initially went out as far as 5. 4, it then went in below 5 and I was eventually forced to trade out at odds of 4. 5, resulting in a loss.... more

Blandoun And Quite By Chance - Horses To Lay Thursday

 By garethp1981 in Horse Racing

4 December 2014 13:59

Yesterday I posted about two horses which were favourites but which I thought there was value in laying. I layed Mac Bertie at 5 at about 12. 20 and then watched the market right up until two minute before the race. For a long time there was very little movement, the back price remaining at 4. 9 where it had started moving only a tick in either direction and always returning home pretty soon afterwards.... more
