For the uninitiated, dobbing, or double or bust, is a technique to profit from the price movement of a horse between its pre-race price and price in the in-play market, once the race is under way. In an ideal world, dobbers look to profit from a 50% or bigger drop in the odds. I thought […]

Let’s face it – it’s so tempting to find amazing entry points for trades… But how much time do you spend considering your management of open positions? The management of your trades is where you’ll almost always find (or lose) the discipline that makes or breaks your campaign. But we don’t always go into each […]
York’s ebor meeting will be with us this week and it’s a fine time to look at the 10-year trends, beginning with favourites. In the last 10 years, had you layed all favourites at the Ebor meeting, you’d have made a whopping 3.61 points profit ( don’t spend it all at once). It does look […]

Once upon a time I made myself a ‘million-pound spreadsheet’. It was a beauty to behold. I plotted a graph projecting a (theoretical) rapidly growing trading bank and I virtually worshipped the thing. I could probably dig it up on an old hard drive somewhere. And you know what, for my very first 8 weeks […]
How do you learn to be a really good trader? A typical experience might be to learn a trading strategy, apply it to a demo account (or paper trade it) and then take it live once some virtual profits have been seen. And that’s a perfectly sensible way to go about things. Problems can arise, […]
It’s August, and there is one sport which eclipses all others….the football. So this week I take a departure from horse racing to discuss this new season up and coming. Do you have a plan for the football season? Are you a bet-and-go football punter? If so , what’s your niche? Here are a few […]

I did receive some questioning emails this week in answer to my eletter last week. I really don’t understand objections to backing horses based on their odds, particularly in an 8 runner race where we can narrow down the likely winners by logically excluding 2/3 ( or more) outsiders. I’m keeping a track of qualifying […]

Remember the classic 80’s film Trading Places? Two rich old brothers swap the lifestyles of a beggar and a fancy commodities broker to settle a twisted $1 bet. They set out to prove once and for all whether nature or nurture dictates how successful a person can be. Needless to say, the whole thing blows […]
I’ve been doing a bit more number crunching looking for added profit for 4th favourites in 8 runner races. What did we learn from last week’s eletter? Well, a focus on the all-weather was a key aspect. If we focus on 4th favourites in 8 runner races on the all-weather, only when these 4th favourites […]

I set off hacking my way through the trading ‘jungle’… I bought the books, followed the ‘gurus’, set about looking for the Holy Grail. You know, the ‘one system to rule them all!’ But it was only when I stepped back and took a good long look at what I was really trying to achieve […]
