Lay The Field Fourteen Day Trial – Day Six Result

You may need to double click on the screen shot for a better view

My Blog post of the week last 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.

Before I start todays round up,  I would just like to thank Scott Ferguson of the Sport is made for betting  blog, for originally posting up this method and bringing it to our attention.

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 sixth day that I have had the time to put the method into action and as you can see from the screen shot above, it was a losing day.

I decided to set my lay odds at 1.33 again, so that if I did win I would be paid out at odds of nearly two to one.

I picked a 2 mile  6 furlong handicap chase with 13 runners at Ffos Las. My reasoning was slightly different to the previous  two days races that I have trialled.  Whereas the other two races were quite open this one had a warm favourite  (BSP odds 3.9)  I thought that if the favourite was in contention later in the race his price could fall too much and possibly include some value. All it would take then would be for the favourite not to win and it could be another pay day.

Although the favourite, Border Lad finished third he was well beaten. The race was won by The Composer with Gleannacreim finishing second and trading down as low as 1.53 in running.

Trial Summary

Number of bets: 6
