Had a good day. Normally, during the week, favourites have a tendency to initially drift, but there doesn't seem to be many layers this week.
Anyone know why this might be?
I took advantage of that fact by backing the favourites at the right times. Could have had several more ticks, by placing more trades (but expecting more of a drift to happen made me wary of not entering the market). Also, could have gained 4 ticks instead of 1 a couple of times (if I had waited a second or two longer).
In the 16.35 at Fontwell, I offered a back bet at 3.25 It didn't match and the market crashed down to about 2.64
Therefore a missed opportunity, but at least I correctly anticipated when the correction occurred.
In the 16.55 at Newmarket, couldn't believe it when a spoofer layed 5k at odds of 4.4 - Madness to me, especially when it had already drifted to a fairly high point.
