I got off to a good start today, and then the wheels fell off the trolley.
I had done a good trade on this race and decided to have a go at in running trading, big mistake I should have been happy with what I had.
My mentor says always put a lay bet on first just in case the horse falls, this horse had taken up the running at the start of the race.
And after putting my lay bet in the price went in the opposite direction, and I lost out, it was not all bad because I was using reduced stakes so I did not lose a lot.
There is another lesson to be learned here, and that is not to trade races under 1 mile as the price movements move very quickly.
And in shorter races the front runner has a better chance of winning, but this does not mean it always will.
