Day 21 +85.5%

Wednesday's Result
Palomar was unplaced in the first race at Musselbrough.
£8.55 in the bank

The bank has now gone past £180, so the ante rises to £9 -- actually £9.50 to cover the commission charged by Betfair.


Bank
The bank is at £185.50, up +85.50%


Thursday's Selections
There are only two definite picks today, with 4 other possibles.
If there is no movement by the first race - either the 12.30 at Southwell with Stanley George currently at 1.66 or the 12.40 at Ludlow with Princess of Aeneas currently at 3.0 - I shall not be laying today.

However, I have come across an interesting placing system which I may be trying out. I'll keep you posted.

I haven't been betting for a while, mainly because the Christmas too-ing and fro-ing hasn't really been conducive to following the rollover ladder to its conclusion.

Day 17: +60%

Thursday's Result
Player came 2nd in the first race at Market Rasen. It wasn't actually the favourite by the time the race started, but as the favourite, Henchman, came 3rd it doesn't really matter.

Unfortunately, I made a bit of a boo-boo. I had layed the bet at odds below what was on offer, intending to make the adjustment, if necessary, nearer racetime. Unfortunately, I forgot to check, my layed bet offer wasn't accepted, and so I had no money on the race.

However, the system worked, so I didn't risk the pot by setting up another rollover ladder.

The bank is now up to £160 (after adjustments for commissions on my winnings), so the daily target goes up to £8. I will actually be increasing the bet to cover for the commission payments.

Today's selections
12.50 Lingfield: Shade Cozy @ 2.70
13.40 Exeter: Tidal Fury @ 2.00
14.05 Sandown: Grant Jack @ 1.79
14.15 Exeter: Minella Tipperary @ 2.58
15.40 Sandown: My Turn Now @ 2.14

Day 16

Wednesday's Result
Marcel came first in the first race but
Alexander Exchange sneaked in second at 2.50 in the second race at Plumpton for another £7 in the bank.

After adjustment, mainly for commissions on the wins, the bank is actually standing at £160 - so the daily target goes up to £8. I will be increasing the bet slightly (to £8.50) to allow for the commission payment.

Today's Selections
12.50 Market Rasen: Player @ 1.86
14.30 Leicester: Nobelix @ 1.72
14.50 Market Rasen: Camden George @ 2.56
15.00 Leicester: An Accordian @ 1.73
