Lay Of The Day - Sept 2015

Lay Of The Day - Sept 2015
Another month gone and the Lay Of The Day selections continue to perform well.

With over 31pts acrued since the start of the trial, the lays are averaging a tad over 10pts per month. If that sort of return continues over the coming months I will be delighted.

Sept saw a profit of 10.84pts after 5% commission was taken into account. In all there were 18 lays with only 3 of those winning their respective races. This is a particularly pleasing figure as there were a few days were, due to other commitments, I was unable to submit a selection.

In addition, there were 7 selections that did not qualify as their BSP was into double figures. Having said that, one of those selections won at BSP of 11.29 so something of a lucky escape there - but that's why the criteria is there in the first place. This tends to happen primarily at the bigger meetings of which there were a couple during the month.

As we move firmly into the realms of the national hunt season, it will be interesting to see how the lays progress. More of the same will be most welcome.

As ever, you can follow the announcements on Twitter and you can review a spreadsheet of all selections and results by clicking on the image.

Time For A Break

One of the benefits of trading as a hobby is the lack of pressure to earn a living from it. As such I have no worries of missing opportunities in order to pay the bills. I can walk away from it for periods without any issues.

My annual subscription to Fairbot just expired which presents a very convenient opportunity to take a break. Why? Well, one of my New Year resolutions for this year was to finally get around to building myself a new hifi amp - something I've been wanting to do for years but never seemed to find the time. Well, I've now collected virtually all the parts I need so it's time to start building.

I'll be constructing something called a Gainclone. Most of the work will revolve around creating a decent looking enclosure - the cost of buying a quality, attractive case can double the cost of the project. So the plan is to re-use and re-purpose an existing box with modifications as required.

I've no idea how long it will take me as I haven't done any electronics since University in the early 80s. So, assuming I haven't blown myself up, burned the house down or electrocuted myself I'll be back trading once it is done.

In the meantime, I still plan to post the Value Home Football Lays on the blog as well as the Lay Of The Day horse selections on Twitter.

Home Lay Value Picks - 4th-7th Sept 2015
