Lay The Field Fourteen Day Trial – Day fourteen Result- The Best Was Saved To Last!

My Blog post of the week two weeks ago 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 today’s 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 fourteenth and final 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 the biggest  winning day of the whole trial.

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 decided to take on the Supreme Novice Hurdle (13:30) at the Cheltenham festival.

The race consisted of 15 the top novice hurlers running over a distance of just over 2 miles.

My logic was that this would be a very competitive race and with Cheltenham’s long final run in to the finishing line there would be plenty of scope to find value in my lays.  

The race panned out perfectly with both Spirit Son and Sprinter Sacre trading below 1.33 before a late charge from Al Ferof sealed the victory for Ruby Walsh and also sealed the biggest profit of the trial so far.

As an added bonus the profits were also boosted by the fact that because of the problems on Saturday, Betfair were offering 100% of any commission back on the race as a form of apology.
