Lay The Field Fourteen Day Trial – Day Ten Result

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 tenth 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 winning 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 experimented with another new tactic today; The race that I took on was the 14:10 at Ayr, which comprised of a  maiden hurdle over a distance of  2 miles 4 furlongs with a fairly large field of 12 runners. The market was dominated by the favourite (SP 5/4) and second favourite (SP 2/1) with all of the other runners at relatively long odds.

The logic that I approached the race with was that in a maiden hurdle anything can happen due to the inexperience of the participants, also if either of the two market leaders were doing reasonably well early on in the race, the price of that selection would plummet so hopefully hitting my lay odds target, all it would take then would be for another horse to either win or hit my lay target odds and I would be in an all green situation for the race.

The race panned out perfectly for my plan, the favourite ‘Realt Mor’ ran well from the start and was trading as low as 1.6 with a circuit to go. With only a few fences to go ‘Realt Mor’ traded as low as 1.11 only to take a fall at one of the penultimate fences.  The race was then won by the second favourite ‘Drumbaloo’ ensuring a profit for the day.
