My blog post of the week this Monday described a method of laying the whole field in a horse race, so that you would profit if at least two horses reached the lay price you set.
I was so impressed with the concept that I decided to do a fourteen day trial where I would pick one race a day to put the method into action.
Today was the first day where I have put the method into action and as you can see from the screen shot above, I have got off to a profitable start.
I picked a 5 furlong handicap race at Wolverhampton where there were 12 runners in the race and a fairly warm favourite.
I decided to set my maximum liability at £2.00 and my lay odds at 1.33 so that if I did win I would be paid out at odds of nearly two to one.
My reasoning was that Wolverhampton is in my opinion a compact course and with a fairly large field in a sprint, there could be quite a lot of volatility in the in play markets.
As you can see from the highlighted portions of the screen shot above, the race was won by Flying Applause and there was also over a thousand pounds traded at or below 1.33 on another horse in the field called Mata Hari Blue, ensuring a profit of £3.86.
