  • Plan is, put on several bets at once (in this instance, totalling 10 points.) I only expect to make any winnings on maybe 2 or 3 or them, maybe even only 1. But the aim is to win back my 10 points.

    Going to try this for a few days and see if I end up with a net profit or loss.




  • Goal for the day acheived already. :)




  • Since I've more than tripled my original deposit (:D) and was only really hoping to at least break even, I've decided to stick on a few more for later today. I don't mind if I win none of them as I'm still at a profit.

    17.30 Wolverhampton - Meddling 1pt win @ 13/2
    LOSE (but oh-so-close!)

    18.40 Ripon - Flying Pursuit 1pt e/w @ 16/1
    Place 2pt

    19.00 Punchestown - Jansboy 1pt e/w @ 12/1
    LOSE

    19.10 Ripon - Dominada 1pt win @ 4/1
    LOSE

    20.10 Ripon - Mississippi 1pt e/w @ 12/1
    WIN - 12.8pt




  • And finally, two for the 20.30 in Punchestown.

    Mrs Mac Veale 1.6pt e/w @ 12/1
    LOSE

    Erlkonig 2.4pt, SUPPOSED to be e/w but my fat fingers pressed the confirm button too soon. So it's 2.4pt to win, 14/1 - unlikely. :( May still put on an e/w.
    LOSE

    Actually, you know what, I'm going to put 2.5pt e/w on Vive La France in the 20.30 at 9/1.
    LOSE


    I think I cursed this race - two of my three fell! :o :eek:




  • Day one and I've turned 10pt into 44.8pt.

    Not bad going. :) If tomorrow is as successful, I'll be delighted!

    (Although chances are it was just beginners luck!)

    17.20 Wolverhampton - Sixties Queen 1.5pt e/w @ 8/1
    LOSE



    So that's 29.8pt total in bets. That leaves me with a balance of just 15pt! I will update for wins and losses as I go along. Oh well, even if I lose every single one, I still have 1.5 times what I started with. ;)

    If things go well, maybe I'll do a few more this evening.




  • Last minute .2pt e/w on both Jesse Allen @ 40/1 and Disushe Star @ 50/1 in the 3.00 ...
    LOSE!




  • OK today has not been stellar so far, but things can still pick up! I'm going to stick on some more money for this evening. Will update later with final account balance!

  • Yes, I went a little bit crazy today, leaving me with a balance of only 6pt! :D Will be interesting to see how this pans out. As per the title, it's only an experiment. I'm sure I'll at least get back up to my original 10pt ... hopefully!!!!! Will update as the day goes on. (I'm bedbound for a few days, hence all the extra time to be messing around with horse betting!)




  • You know what, I'll go for broke.

    Seeing as PP are paying out an extra place on the 15.45 at Epsom, I'll put on two more bets ...

  • A late 1.4pt on Fattsota to win at 8/1
    LOSE ... but jesus that was close. :(




  • Well, thanks to Al Bandar, balance right now is 37.32pt.

    I'm probably going to stick on a few more for this evening. Because why not? :)




  • And my balance is back at zero again ... for now!

    Tomorrow's another day. :)




  • Well, I've 24pt, and I'm going to go with my usual style of throwing on the lot and hoping for the best! If I have any winnings, I'll probably put a few more bets on later today, we'll see how these go first. However for some reason I'm not feeling very lucky today. :/ Time will tell! Here goes.

  • So that brings my balance up to 37.1pt. Quit while I'm ahead? Never! :D

    Will throw down a few more bets. As mentioned, I'm bedbound and bored. This is just a way of entertaining myself, I'm not even aiming to make money out of it. For the entertainment I've gotten the past couple of days, it's well worth the original tenner I put down. (By the way, in case it's not obvious, I know nothing about horses and my bets are pure guesswork!)

    More bets coming soon. :)

  • Last minute impulse bet on the Newcastle 21.10.

    I had 9 pts left, so put 5pt on Eland Alley at 3/1, and 4pt on Roys Legacy at 8/1.

    Not really sure why, or if it even makes mathematical sense, but there you go!

    My plan is to start with the same amount tomorrow, do some more of the same, and see if I can make it last any longer. :)




  • Well, here goes. More of the same, but starting with 20pt this time. I'm still going to do multiple bets at a time, expecting to lose most of them but get lucky on a couple of them. I might do a little bit more research, and less impulsive last minute gambles! We'll see how long it lasts for this time.

I decided to lodge an extra 19.27pt to bring my starting balance for tomorrrow afternoon to 50pt even. So I've used up the whole 50 pts, 18 bets altogether! :eek: It'll be a nailbiting afternoon. Whether or not I put on more bets for the evening races will depend on whether I make any money on these ones! We shall see.

  • Since I've started this little experiment of mine, I've lodged €49.27 altogether from the start, and my current account balance is €167.75. Not bad over five days, I think. :)

    I'm now going to withdraw €49.27, leaving my balance as my winnings only, i.e. €118.48. I'll then post up my bets for tomorrow.
