Monaco Grand Prix

The Gym I belong to had a new joiner that I started speaking to last year, he is an ex-racing driver. He has given me some valuable insight into the racing world from behind the wheel!  He told me Hamilton would struggle this year and that Red Bull stood a good chance of pole position at Monaco. I’m all ears now when I chat to him now!!!

For a view of the race from behind a spreadsheet, read on…

Tennis vs Football

Some of the overriding factors in trading are opportunity, position placement and money management. Get any of these out of kilter and your trading strategy goes up in smoke.

Let’s look at Tennis and Football to understand what I mean.

Skill differences are slight across a lot of sport, but have you noticed how there can be some wildly uncompetitive matches in Tennis but in Football the opponents always seem to have a chance?

Football

Football is a game dominated by two factors. One …

Its Not Just Women Who Can Multi-Task

As we steam head on into the summer months some of the hardest choices you’re going to be faced with this time of year is deciding where to focus your attention and which sport or markets to trade, with the Horse Racing’s flat season now in full flow the Derby and the summers big festival meetings like Royal Ascot are just around the corner, we have Tennis also in full swing this time of year as the European circuit gets …

York Dante Meeting

After a successful Chester meeting we roll onto York for the Dante meeting this week.

The York card looks good with plenty of group racing, but the other stuff on the card today looks a little ‘testing’. For a direct comparison look at the prize money. Kempton has a grand total of £18.4k, York £191.5k. I’ll be cautious and use small stakes at the smaller meetings as a result.

As we move through the early part of the flat turf season, the

The losers game

Ever felt like somebody is deliberately trying to coax you into a mistake when you trade?

When I first started trading

When I first started trading I wasn’t sure why the market did what it did, but my response to this was was quite simple and something I have always done in any market I have participated in. I started keeping detailed records of everything I did.

That sounds incredibly dull and uninteresting, but it’s actually the core of any …

Chester May Festival

Chester May festival starts today and it’s a welcome addition to the card, but based upon previous years it’s nothing amazing from a trading viewpoint.

Obviously we all love some extra liquidity that the quality racing will bring, but it’s never been a meeting that I’ve got really good amounts from. By that I mean I’m not banging in three figure results a race. Just the odd one or two a day. The thing to note about Chester is its

Manic Monday

It’s one of a handful of manic trading sessions you see during the year today.

There are 620 runners on the card today and 54 races. Sounds like heaven, but it can be hell. The markets are just often not strong enough to do anything with. You often get a lot of donkeys out and therefore you end up with some competitive handicaps at the lower end of the scale, but little money and little time to trade them.

Will Leicester really stuff the bookies?

Lot’s of PR, sorry, I mean talk, from the bookies recently about how much they will pay out if Leicester win the title. But is that a reality?

My worst bet ever!

Here is a confession – I will lose money if, when, Leicester win the title. But I have to say it will be one of the most enjoyable losses of my career! Why, because it’s great to see a competitive season in the premiership. As a supporter of

Good Luck to all runners today

If you are running the London marathon today then, I’m jealous! But I’d like to wish you the best of luck and hope you have a really good run.

If I can stay injury free for a few years I may try once more, but I’m getting old and decrepit; so it gets less likely each year. Nothing’s impossible though as I could always enter the wheelchair race! I was a good 1/2 marathon runner, but couldn’t transfer that form to the
