St Leger Meeting

St Leger Meeting

For some background to this meeting have a read of this wiki link. I must admit, from a trading perspective, I haven’t got a great deal out of this meeting in the past. So I tend to not set high expectations only be disappointed. I tend to treat it as a decent meeting, but not […]

Laying on the beach

Laying on the beach

Laytown – Sounds like a small town where people favour only one side of the book. But its actually a racecourse in Ireland. Since 1876 Laytown has hosted a single annual horse racing meeting on its beach – one of only a couple on sand (held on the beach) race meetings run under official rules […]

All weather, all change

All weather, all change

It’s the 1st of September and Monday evenings at Windsor and a thing of the past for another year. I mourn the passing of the summer, but it’s not all bad news on the racing front. In the summer you will find that with so many races on the liquidity dilutes itself across many races. […]

Marmite Monday

Marmite Monday

It’s that day of the year that you either love or hate. The August bank holiday in the UK brings  a whole bunch of racing, all on the same day. There will be lots of meetings on today and about a billion races. This may seem like heaven for some, but it’s a nightmare for […]

Summer has almost gone

Summer has almost gone

Seeing Wolverhampton on the card again made me realise another summer has almost passed into the spreadsheet of history. One of the realities of sports trading is that summer is peak season across a number of sports for me, so it’s a valuable time to get into top gear. I mourn it’s passing. But my […]

Two horse races

Two horse races

Here are three two horse races for you: – (1) A two horse race yesterday at Epsom, utterly depressing. Difficult to trade, I made a loss. (2) A Tennis match, a joy of uncertainty and volatility. Currently occurring daily in NY at the US Open Tennis at the moment. Lovely to trade. (3) The ensuing premier […]

US Open Tennis – Scoreline statistics

A short into to a regular new feature For some time I’ve been analysing various aspects of a number of key sports, but one thing that is the enemy of that is time, I don’t have any! So I’ve taken to surrounding myself with people who do and who are specialist in those areas I can’t devote […]

Sweet spots

Sweet spots

Every market has a sweet sport. Odds that will be reached more often than others, a score. This also applies to trading. Depending on how you chose to enter and exit, there is a sweet spot in terms of when it’s best to trade in and out. When I model a market I’m looking for sweet […]
