And they are on…By
Ah you have to love it. For today only, every man, woman and bulldog, sorry, child, becomes a gambler.
As sweepstake fever takes over the UK, I have only one recommendation. Enjoy it – but don’t invest too much of your hard earnt roubles into it.
I always reccommend to people to treat it as they treat the lottery. If you normally have £2 on the lottery, then do that.
If you can afford to put £20 on the lottery each week, you can afford to lose the same on the horses once a year.
I suggest you spread it around at least two horses, maybe even three, and weight your stakes to line you up for a balanced outcome (i.e £0.50p each way on the 66/1 shots and £2 each way if you choose one of the more favoured nags.)
Oh, and always always always back everything each way.
For those that are here for the “real” bets, I suggest getting on Norwich and Millwall today for a very nice odds against home double. It’s not fancy, but the best bets rarely are. I managed to get this one at 2.2 yesterday when Norwich were offfered at a very silly 8/13. That has gone for now, with the same site now going with a more sensible 8/15.
Apologies for not having spent an hour giving you every rhyme and reason this week. But if I am honest, the sun is out and I have better things to do with my life.
And if you haven’t yet got to the point you can see that Norwich are a good price today then I think you need to stop relying on me so much and do some groundwork yourself!
