I’ve just put the finishing touches to February’s edition of What Really Wins Money, which is traditionally the Cheltenham edition – and there are loads of angles for readers to investigate in good time for March’s extravaganza.
Andrew David (he of the Little Acorns and Legacy and Saver systems) takes us through all of the major races, and with a specific each way focus.
And for those of you still unconvinced that each way betting is a real potential money-maker, well I bagged another 18.74-odds winner this week to add to last week’s superb run for my own each way selections (free to readers of What Really Wins Money at www.whatreallywinsmoney.co.uk).
Andrew rightly argues that Cheltenham is a great festival for each way betting because of its big field handicap races, the knowledge that each horse will be there on merit and not just making up the numbers, and the icing on the cake: some bookmakers will be paying out for five places in some races (if you read last week’s eletter you’ll know each way terms are typically for three places).
The Statman concludes that it’s the Irish we should side with in March’s festival, but you’ll have to get a copy of February’s WRWM to find out which races and at what specific distances the Irish-trained horses excel.
The Patriarch puts his years of experience to good use and offers some sagely advice for how to tackle the festival, and the key piece of advice: choose your battles.
I go in depth in February’s newsletter into the phenomenon I spoke about last week: that of penalised horses being potentially good laying bets.
Lucy Collins continues her Seven Pillars to Betting Success (she’s on Pillar Five this February) with a specific look at what she calls ‘psychology trading’ of the markets at www.betfair.com. She takes us through potentially profitable swing trading and trend trading examples. It’s all very unique and interesting stuff.
So there’s plenty to get your teeth into in February’s Guinness-soaked Cheltenham Special (it comes with a free empty can of Guinness for every reader).
Fulham are my new favourite football team!
What an interesting set of matches mid-week. Myself, and my Delay React Trade (DRT) live chatters embarked upon a profitable DRT session, the highlight being Fulham’s exploits against Liverpool.
This really is a great example of DRT in action…
Liverpool were 1.4 shots to win this match.
But Fulham score first. We lay Fulham…
Liverpool make it 1-1 and we trade out for a nice profit.
Hang on a sec: Fulham score again. We lay Fulham (again)…
Liverpool equalise (again) and we trade out for a nice profit (again).
The icing on the cake was the stat that we uncovered: Fulham had only had two draws all season. So what do you do when it’s 2-2 coming up to the 90th minute?
You lay the 2-2, of course!
My new best mate Steven ‘Stevie G’ Gerrard pops up with a 90th-minute winner to make it 2-3 to Liverpool and another match to remember for DRT trading.
Try it out for yourself this weekend (or better yet, come on board the DRT train, where I’ll do all of the footy research for you, and guide you to the best in-play stats during my live chats).
I’m off now to place my Cheltenham Bets early on (thanks Andrew, Statman and Patriarch).
Have a great weekend.
