Good profits more than wiped out in 1 race.
Started off well backing a fav and gained 2 ticks. Then backed another fav for another 2 ticks (could have left it for several ticks).
Backed a fav at 2.64 for 1 tick. Only hedged at 2.74 because it had drifted, but still 17p profit. Almost £2 up at this stage.
Then the big loss came. It was in the 15:10 at Lingfield. Often on Saturdays, favs get backed heavily. I backed it at 3.3
All of a sudden, it was getting layed strongly. At the time, I was thinking: why? I tried hedging for a loss a couple of times, but it wasn't getting matched (the sudden drift was just too quick).
The lay matched at 3.85 which is an 11 tick loss. Huge loss of £3.57. This type of event is rare on a Saturday, so maybe just bad luck?
Managed to win in the next 3 races, to end with a small loss for the day.
Overall, I am well in profit for the month. But always disappointed to have a losing day.
6 wins, 0 scratches, 1 loss. Lost 51p
