One of my all-time favourite horses Big Buck's was at it again today and has now won 17 races on the trot. Unbelievable. Of course, he always goes off at short prices but had you put a tenner on him every one of his 34 races, you'd be up €265.
He's just a joy to watch and long may he continue winning.
It was a decent day on the inplay trades today and following a little spell of going nowhere, I'm back within three points of the all-time high. If I can kick on past that all time high on Friday, I'll be one happy man. Starting to hit these with bigger stakes now and I'll be using €25 on these, laying back with €50. The big meetings like Aintree have a lot of liquidity so it's proved easy to get matched. And with a lot of punters betting at Aintree, it has a knock-on effect in the other markets too which are a bit busier than normal. All good news for us traders.
