    Bad luck Tooting; it always "sod’s law" that when you actually put your money down it goes wrong.

    Stick with it though as you should win in the long run.

    tooting, Matron is right… even if you actually miss the favourite, but you get the shortest odds you can – you will still win in the end, stick with it.  Remember the probability is on your side ;)  As for switching between windows.. I do this constantly when I’m betting on sports events in running, usually with 3/4 bookies open at the same time.  You’ll get quicker with practice!  Another thing to consider is opening a window and resizing / repositioning it so that it is displayed at the side of the betfair screen, to refresh just right mouse click then click refresh. ;)  This is what I do with ftse / dow jones betting – u can constantly keep an eye on it.  You also have sites like smartbet which automatically update and show you the odds shortening/lengthing in different colours.  Very helpful.

    Thanks larry – especially about smartbet – very useful.

    Don’t worry – I’ll stick with it every day I’m not working – at least until I’m in profit!!!

    I’m having a dogdy time too at the moment! 5pts down.

    I can’t play every day – when I do play, the favourites bolt in, and… well you can guess the rest :cheesy:

    I would say definitely sit out a race if you can’t get close to what you think the SP is going to be.  I didn’t lay Cambrian Dawn at all, and felt very smug when he bolted in – only to have my smug grin wiped with the last result. Bah.

    Smartbet is definitely a useful tool.

    Thats the key, if you can’t get on at a short enough price, sit it out.. profit will come in time.

    A quick way to switch between windows – ctrl + shift.  Very useful when switching between oddschecker and betfair!<br>

    This deserves to be brought back to the top for a looksee.

    I was talking to my good friend Bricoman about last races & how tough they can be and it put me in mind of this thread.

    Larry kept it going for quite a while and his last posting gave the following results starting with a £1000 bank:-

    203 Plays, BANK UP £1189.83.  154 Wins, 49 Losses.  

    Don’t forget that’s a bank up BY figure NOT a bank up TO ie his bank had risen to £2189.83 !!

    If I remember correctly (I havn’t been all the way through the thread) there was some discussion either on the thread itself or on rules for monthly prizes about whether it should be allowed being a laying system as opposed to a backing one.

    Anyway there it is Bricoman in all it’s glory have a look, see what you think.<br>  <br>

    A very interesting observation snowman. I must confess, when ever I have a sure fire Banker and it’s in the last race of the meeting, it generally loses.

    I bet this would still reap rewards in the present racing climate.

    Regards

    Bricoman
