Good day all round

While the afternoon racing yesterday was a complete farce – shame on you racing, the evening card was much more interesting, enjoyable and full of opportunity. On the horses I managed more than double yesterday, which was a good result.

At Roland Garros the tennis was proving brilliant yesterday as well. With the wind howling around the courts it threw up lots of oppotunity. Some high profile slip ups generated some excellent opportunties. Congratulations to the person who backed Rus at 980 on her way to defeating Clijsters!! My back at 23 is piddling in comparison.

I am experimenting with a new strategy at Roland Garros on top of my normal activity and that is proving very insightful. I am using Tennis trader to look up odds offset from the starting price but at scorelines that are not unreasonable to expect. I am then asking for those odds before the match has started, meaning I am in front of the queue when the time comes. I am hitting around a 70% strike rate at the moment and achieving pretty reasonable trading results. It’s looking promising.
