Looking back over recent weeks, it seems that, in general, I am much more consistent in the evening race meetings than those in the afternoon. This is amply illustrating in the following graph for today's results.
I'm not sure why this would be the case, though the obvious answer may lie in my past experience of the thinner greyhound and place markets. I'm not so sure it is as simple as that though. However, irrespective of the reason, it is clearly something I have to work on.
The good news is that the afternoon meetings are not seeing me make huge losses. It is just that I am very inconsistent. Further progress will not be forthcoming until I learn to control these losses on a regular basis.
This evening's racing was interesting in that, to a large extent, I concentrated on the favourite of all things and managed to catch some good swings to boot.
I noticed over the past couple of days that as I tried to avoid the favourite, I was frequently missing significant swings as I traded one of the lesser fancied runners. I wanted to see if I could pick up on some of them, whilst at the same time being very wary of what some might describe as my nemesis in recent times.
I didn't trade all favourites. Only those that had showed persistent moves in one direction or the other. This seemed to work well allowing me not only to recover from this afternoon's minor loss, but post a reasonable profit as well.
More of that tomorrow will do very nicely thank you.
