Cow muck

Today was cow muck.

Ol' banana fingers here goes to type in a £2 stake but doesn't clear the 5 that's in the box already. £52 plonked on a nag just as it falls out of the leading pack. Result = £52 gone.

"What a slip up!"

Next up was an in-running lay of some Ruby Walsh nag for a nice 20 English groats. I was already planning what I was going to spend this fortune on when...what's that? The leading 3 horses have all tripped over each other? Result = Walsh wins, Mets hands back the groats plus more besides.

What else have we got? Oh yes, the £200 lay I put on a horse at Fairyhouse just as "Billy Big Stakes" comes crashing in with a back for 97k....what the hell? Not a couple of grand, 97 grand!! Result = -£25 red across the field.

It wasn't this hard yesterday


  1. Hello Mets,
    could you tell me what's the use of watching live horse racing?
    do you use it for inplay racing or for Preracing?
    can you tell me the pro's of your watching of the live horse racing?
    Thank you for your reply. I'm just a beginner.

  2. Hi,

    It's useful to watch before the start of the race to see if anything is "playing up" - you could get caught out otherwise.

    If you trade up to the off then it's also useful to have pictures to see how many are left to go into the stalls, as you can sometimes squeeze in a few last second trades if you're brave/stupid enough!

    Finally, it's useful to watch for in-play trading so you can get an idea of how the field is shaping up - you can't always gleen this from a commentary alone.
