I've been looking thru' my betting returns of recent weeks and outside those selections that I've been posting on Betting League, I've been squandering decent profits on silly wagers. I'm sure most horse-players have had this sort of problem - low quality racing not firing-up the belly and a growing "itch" to have a wager that needs scratching.
What usually happens in my case is that mid-afternoon I'll log-on to Betfair and peruse the next race or two before settling on some dodge-pot that the "devil" on my shoulder tells me I can make a quick profit from.
Sure enough, 10 minutes later I'm down £50 and thinking "what the hell am I doing?"
So, for the next few months up till Christmas Day, I'm going to try and avoid all "silly" strategies such as back-2-lay, place-laying, and laying-the-fav. Not, I'm not going to try and avoid; I'm going to make sure I don't go anywhere near these sort of wagers by avoiding using my Betfair account and relying solely on traditional bookies.
I've noted a few "jumpers" that you may want to enter in your notebooks, they are:-
WEST WITH THE WIND
The last-named looks very exciting.
