    Limbo Trading

    Here is my May 2020 Betfair trading update. Away from trading I’ve suddenly got incredibly busy with my online business so doing the US races early evenings has suited me well throughout May. Although I’ve enjoyed the US racing and had “fun” with it, it has felt like I’m in limbo just passing time, waiting for the UK & Irish racing to return. Bottom line for May A very disappointing 6 Red days and an overall Red month of £61.89 After a couple of bad reds, I dropped my liability dramatically on the 11th May, and that virtually locked in a red for the month. I wasn’t interested in chasing…

    Record Breaker

    My April Trading Update The headline news is that April was a record-breaking trading month for me. Sounds great but I only won £94.98 so I’m not getting over excited. *For the youngsters reading this who have no idea who the guy in the image above is I’ll tell you at the bottom of the post. (You’ll have to read it all now) After 16 months of trading it’s only my 2nd ever green month so a win is a win as they say. I switched to In-Running (IR) about a year ago on 26th April 2019. I’ve used trial and error and switched and tweaked strategies over the last…

    Trading Milestone

    I bought Tony Hargraves’s “In-Running Guide” on the 26th April 2019 and barring holiday’s, the odd day off for a poker tournament and days with no racing I’ve traded In-Running (IR) almost every day since. Prior to IR I tried pre-race scalping for about four months. Happy Birthday So I’ve completed a year now and so far I’ve had one green month. This month though barring late slip ups should be my second green month. That should be proof enough to show it’s not easy, regardless of what people might tell you. It requires some skill (race reading ability) which takes a lot of screen time to master, it requires…

    Hunting for Profit

    On the 4th November I attended the latest “Hunting for Profit” (HFP) In-Running trading course run by Matt Gibson. The course was from 9.30 am till about 5.00 pm and I didn’t fancy driving all the way to Doncaster very early in the morning, so I went up the evening before and stayed one night in a hotel nearby. A large percentage of the other attendees did the same and we all met Matt in the hotel bar for a drink and a chat which was nice. Everyone on the course that I spoke to was nice and friendly. I think we were all pretty much in the same boat…

    My In-Running Trading Set Up

    You’d be surprised how often I get asked on Twitter questions like “what stakes do you use” or what’s your set up like etc. So rather than replying to everyone individually I thought I’d just do a quick video. It will take longer than a reply but I’ll only have to do it once! 13th Feb 2020: Update OK so this post is now out of date so I will do a new post and video shortly. Bet Angel software you can access it here. Free 14 Day Trial. Summary So whichever software you use if you are starting out with In-Running trading on horse races my best advice is…
