Today was the three legged donkey day for me.I backed five of my own selections they all drifted in the markets and then all lost. What a surprise.
I had to laugh when the first Punters Profits nag won and then the second fell at the last fence after being gifted the race. Luckily for me i laid it to cover my stake as it came to the final fence at 1.08 so no damage done but still a sickener. Still looking forward to some proper racing with Cheltenham starting tomorrow. I looked at trading the horse markets but was really shocked by the lack of liquidity and i thought better of it.
So to tennis and only traded two games both posted below. Just to prove it can go wrong the Clement game was so poor i think the guy only held his serve three times in the match and i just couldnt get any worthwhile trade out of that, but at least i cut my losses for a fairly small loss.
The Simon game i didnt bother with as he was injured and i think he should have just pulled out of the tournament because you could have had a chance of getting your money back from the bookies but watching him try to run around reminded me of watching some of the nags i had backed that very same afternoon. The second game was Mr Murray who won the first set 6/1 and then proceeded to go AWOL so that was OK for me. So a loss on the day of £100 with just one bet tonight on the NFL i have backed the 49ers with a -3 handicap.
Wish me luck .....
