Thanks. For a minute I thought I had somehow logged on to someone else's profile!

Glad I read this 不不不

When I first saw it I did think:

  1. Did I get drunk and do this and I just don't remember?
  2. Now would be a great time to split all my strategies into race types and do a deep dive into pattern formations

@john-folan I did the 18.50 and the 19.50 Wolverhampton. Did you only do one of them? .

For some reason my bot didn't fire on the 19:50. Nothing in the conditions, so can only assume the price was trading below 1.8 before the off. I know it was at one point.

Lingfield and Musselburgh are now showing as profitable. Again, if this continues, I will be looking to add them in at a later date. Musselburgh needs more trades and Lingfield is only showing a 2.73% return

-1 point today

1/1. Doubt the last one will get anywhere near matching. A nice positive start since Ive been posting these.

Slim pickings today!! As a side note, I do keep the course filters under review as I think long term they won't be needed. I would rather be adding stuff in though than taking it away so better to err on the side of caution. Fairyhouse for example, has moved into profitable territory. As long as that continues, I will eventually add it in.

Martin's Back the Favourite 3.0

Very interesting Philip, looks very solid, I've done a deep dive and there's no real day of the week that's poor, the drawdowns are acceptable, if you look at the last six months in particular results have been very strong. Can I ask are you currently testing this strategy? and what kind of results are you getting? are they similar to the results that you're getting with the software? I take it the premise behind the strategy is exactly the same as the first Martin backed the favourite, so on your daily selection that you will be given races to trade and all you do is put a back bet on the favourite just before race start?

can i also ask why its not showing any indiviudal trades on the software results?

You need to go into tailor your results and pick the columns you want/need. They will show then if you run the strategy again. Then save the version and you will always have individual results with those columns for that strategy

None from me today as I dont do them on a Saturday. Good luck if you do.

Do you do no horse trading whatsoever on a Saturday or just the short odds lays? Are all types of trades significantly worse on Saturdays in your opinion?

I do no scalping and no short odds lays. Saturdays are a day for backing favourites which is profitable(posted a few weeks back). The short odds lays are profitable on a Saturday but only to the tune of 6-8 points since March 21. So not really worth it.

I still lay beaten favourites on a Saturday and still back the flat pace if there are any as the software shows those are ok.

Hope that helps.
