Manic Monday

29/08/2016 | By | Reply More

It’s that day of the year that you either love or hate. The August bank holiday in the UK brings  a whole bunch of racing, all on the same day. Then as we drift into the late afternoon, the US Open tennis gets underway. Not exactly a relaxing Bank Holiday!

Today there will be 483 runners over 51 races. This may seem like heaven for some, but it’s a nightmare for others. Quite a few races will attract little liquidity, a lot isn’t of quality and many races will clash meaning that you can’t do much on them. Probably 8 of those races will clash today I reckon.

I must admit to actually liking this day. It’s easier than the holidays in the winter, as we are still on that flat and that should help me build a rhythm. I’ve often picked off some good trades on this day so I’ll be here plugging away. A few years have passed since my best Bank Holiday result, but you never know! I’d be happy with much less today and that’s probably what I’ll get.

Whether you choose to enjoy the sun, the racing or the Tennis, good luck whatever your choice.

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.
