The aching transition

14/10/2010 | By More

It’s that time of year in horse racing where the flat gives way to the jumps.

Some good flat races left, but a lot of lower quality and end of season stuff too. On the other side, the jumps now also have a number of novice races. So you end up with some really thin betting markets around at this time of year and things get tougher. However, it’s not new it’s been the same for years, it just a seasonal shift.

When I first ran into this period quite a few years ago, I thought I had lost it. It can be difficult to cope with, but if you are struggling during this time it’s nothing to worry about; it’s just the normal transition from one market type to another. This is usually the last big month I get before we descend into the winter malaise. So I’m going to do my best to put in a good month and start collecting some firewood to keep me warm over the winter!

I left a good job in the consumer technology industry to go a trade on Betfair for a living way back in June 2000. I've been here ever since pushing very boundaries of what's possible on betting exchanges and loved every minute of it.
