Traders of the Prix De L’Arc

Traders of the Prix De L’Arc

It’s that time of year that I turn my attention to a few overseas Racing markets. On Friday, I posted up a bit of evening racing at Moonee Valley in Australia and returned today to have a look at some of the other group racing. It’s with a view to gearing up to the Melbourne Cup […]

Trading the Ryder Cup

Trading the Ryder Cup

Once every two years, the sporting world turns its attention to what is turning into a classic sporting Rivalry, the Ryder Cup. Many years ago it didn’t have anything like the profile it does now. Post war it was a chance of US golfers to show how much better they were than UK players. Then […]

Manual or automated?

Manual or automated?

It was with interest this week that somebody pointed me to a blog post debating, or should I say justifying a stance on automated trading vs manual trading. Here is my angle on it: – Financial markets If you look to financial markets you have many aspects to it. High-frequency traders, slamming in positions in […]

Calamity Cambridgeshire

Calamity Cambridgeshire

I’ve picked off a few good results from the Cambridgeshire in the past and hope to this weekend. But I will remember this race forever for a disaster I had in 2011. Perhaps appropriate given the Betfair outage earlier this week, which I doubt that will be repeated. But is right at the forefront of my […]

Newmarket – Behind the scenes at the home of British horse racing

Newmarket – Behind the scenes at the home of British horse racing

A few weeks ago I was fortunate to be invited to Newmarket (the birthplace and spiritual home of British horseracing) by a fellow Bet Angel forum member who is an ex-jockey that rode for Sir Mark Prescott for many years. Newmarket itself is steeped in history and is built around horse racing with approx. 3000 […]

September Salisbury and it’s importance

September Salisbury and it’s importance

Today we had a meeting at Salisbury, that’s not unusual in the summer. But the last meeting has some significance for me. The reason that race is important to me is that way back in 2003 Betfair published information on a specific race. The information published, which was available in the public domain, was the feature […]

Ebor or Ebore?

Ebor or Ebore?

Summer racing isn’t over quite yet and today kicks of the Ebor meeting at York. I’ve traditionally done OK at this festival each year so I am looking for something above average this week. The Ebor meeting can yield some good results, but nothing is ever guaranteed and this meeting can be a bit random […]

Anomaly It always seemed pretty anomalous to me, but I would always feel that I would do well on a Monday evening, But Tuesdays would often be terrible.

Trading Betfair Tennis markets automatically

My (automated) Tennis trading journey When I first looked to trade tennis with automation my initial mistake was trying to create a single automation file and apply it to all the day’s matches.

Are England just unlucky? No!

Are England just unlucky? No!

When brushing up for the Euro’s I had a good look at prior records to see if there were any trends. One of things that stood out was England’s terrible opening game record. Since this Euro’s started in 1960 England have never won their opening game, a proud record that was upheld yesterday. So in […]
