Horse Tip

One horse tip today:

15:20 Yarmouth:  Virginia Galilei

Have backed him at 5.9 and have put a lay bet in @ 1.8

Should be held up 3/4 of the way back, then do all its running in the last 3 furlongs.

Learning the Tennis trade

Managed to trade about 3 days this week, mainly on Wimbledon but managed to get some horse races in to.

I haven't really traded tennis "properly" before, it was more guess work than anything but this week I've managed to learn the trade (as much as you can in a week).

Here's a few rules that have helped me:

  • If trading on woman's tennis and the match goes to a third set don't trade on it, unless you have been watching from the start, and with half stakes. As there are much bigger swings towards the end of the match, which is understandable.
  • Men's tennis definitely favour's backing the server.
  • A lot of people fancy laying the first set winner, so far I haven't seen anything wrong with this. You can sometimes take advantage of this by laying the winner straight after the set point, the price usually gets pushed up 2-3 ticks by people trying to lay the winner of the set, so you can definitely capitalise on this.

Hopefully manage to trade on the rest of Wimbledon to learn a few more tricks of the trade! Won't manage to trade tomorrow as I've got a simulator session, I'm currently completing my Instrument Rating down in Waterford (Ireland). 

Right and on to tonight.......I have no idea what is going to happen (Spain v's Italy) 
I've just had one cheeky bet....on......Italy....first corner! 
And i've also managed to get a free bet on Italy 2-1, so will see what happens!

So you think....

Pure and utter class! I tried to get more matched but he was getting backed like crazy during the race! Also had a nice winner with Joviality earlier on to. No trading today just pure punting!

England V's Ukraine

Here's my screen at Half-time. The only bet I have placed is £4 on 1-0 England, the others I managed to trade them.
England are playing shocking at the minute (or Ukraine are playing really well, it's arguable) "Wayne" look's like he hasn't touched a ball in a long time......

If England come out parking the bus again Ukraine might be able to knick one.

Trading wise: I'm going to stick with what I have set up at the minute, I may top up the 1-1 and 1-0 but that's about it.

Ciao back to the game!

Blog is back....

Right it's been awhile......

I've spent the last year living in Florida completing my Private Pilot's License, Commercial Pilot's License and ATPL exam's. (excuse me if that's all jiberish to you). Basically, everything went swimmingly!
Now I'm out the other side, back in Ireland, I'm just in the middle of doing my Instrument Rating. Which i should have completed by the end of August (weather permitting!)
But the "bad" side is I currently have a lot of down time. So to keep myself occupied i have deposited a nice round figure into Betfair of £200 and as of today i have started trading again.

Day One: Overall went very well, just getting into the swing of things again. I've got a bit of a new preference regarding graphs and my set up but I will talk about that in later post's.

If anyone is still following the blog just give me a quick comment below to let me know your there :)

Ciao for now.
