Easy Come, Easy Go

This laying lark is proving to be a bit of a roller coaster this month as yesterdays gains are wiped out and I'm back to square one. Go to Jail, do not pass Go and do not collect £200. You've got to laugh.

The same thing happened today as did yesterday. I tried building some green on the runners I intended to lay. Not once did I managed to build some insurance on those picks that went on to win. Indeed, I made things worse. I'm going going off Baldrick's cunning plan.

Hello Alistair,
Mayhap Rabbie Burns had something like trading lays when he wrote, (not quite but near enough):-

But, Ali, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain;
The best-laid schemes o' mice an 'men
Gang aft agley,
An'lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!

Wise words indeed Phil
