I'm going to post a daily nap lay to a level stake until the end of the month. I'll keep the prices short enough to make it interesting, and only use this thread to monitor progress. 

18.00 Navan Washington DC

One of the stables global travellers and won this race last year after a prep race in Meydan. AOB taking the same route this year after finishing 4th there, but all wins have been on good or firm. Will be soft today and showers are forecast for this afternoon. I also feel WDC needs 6f to be at his best these days, certainly his style of running would support it. The top 3 in the betting are close on ratings, and the English runner Final Venture is not out of it, but i think Son of Rest (who is probably better than his form would suggest) will win it. Good luck all.

Lay at 2.60

Thanks a Swedish Shakespeare no less Grin

Mttt and flukes,

Thank you for your comments.

AOB let me down last night (or maybe it should be the other way around) but i sense he could have a good day at The Curragh today. Mount Tabora has been touted since the spring, but oddly enough he's drifted. I think Saxon Warrior will win the big one (Latrobe could be a lively outsider) and although RM has chosen the favourite i prefer Land Force with Donnacha riding.

Mount Tabora wont have a hard ride from what I'm hearing, he is nice but there is NOTHING between him and U S S Michigan at home, but the latter will want further than 6f. I would not be surprised if U S S got a more vigorous ride to win today. But I expect them to be 1st and 2nd. I will be laying All The Kings Men, he is not in the same league as the other two and despite having experience, he should not be good enough to beat them, even with the other two having tender rides.

Throwing the office at them basically means the full workload , as in the offices workload. If someone threw that at you, you would have to work real hard to get the job done.

So not having the office thrown at them, means to not have a full workload thrown at them and not be put under serious pressure.

Hope you now understand :)

A fantastic thread - showcasing your ability and earning followers a good profit - very well done indeed.

On top of that the success of this thread has been the lack of negativity - the naysayers have gone into hiding with their tails between their legs.

That is some achievement on here these days.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the details of your daily lay - that was always the interesting part for me!

I hope you enjoy your break spending time with your daughter - money cannot but that .......

Hi Guys,

Most, if not all of you know today will the last selection of the Saturday/Sunday thread and the last per se. I will post it later (on that thread).

You're also probably aware of why i started this 'project' in the first place (if that's the correct description, i'm an engineer after all) but here's a run down anyway.

I was convalescing at home, reviewing race cards and decided to lay an AOB runner later in the day. It was at this point i thought why don't i start a dedicated lay thread until the end of the month, a period of 8 days. Laying wasn't new to me anyway, it would be a bit of fun and give me something to concentrate on during my home stay.

Several posters have/had lay threads, but generally they're simple posts with the name of the horse, meeting and time of race. I don't mean any disrespect to these posters in any way whatsoever, but i wanted to make mine a little different, more interesting to read for real racing enthusiasts, so i decided on a specific format.

I thought a maximum limit of 5/2 (high st bookie odds) would be a good challenge - only one lay a day - an aim to win a level £50 per day that i felt was a comfortable stake using my own money - post copy of the matched bet - give reasoning for the lay - occasionally select one i thought could win the race - and most important, a running P/L so everyone could see the progress and transparency. I also added humour into the posts on occasion.

This i did, and reached a record of 8/8, therefore making a profit of £400 (8 x £50). I thought this was going to be the end but a couple of posters asked me to continue so i thought why not, i was still at home anyway and i enjoyed doing it. I even got very positive comments from the forum daddy, Mr Willie Shafter himself, i think i ought to frame them. Laugh

I stated i would continue until i hit a loser/winner depending which ever way you look at it. Several days later, a new poster called Blank Blank, erm, sorry, Domino (only kidding Dom Laugh) entered the fray and a rivalry started, albeit friendly enough. He's not everyones cup of tea, but he's knowledgable on some aspects, and i did like reading his posts, even if i didn't necessarily act on them.

I got up to a perfect 14/14, but then my lucky pin deserted me, i got done on a head bob by a well backed favourite (I could have been 18/18 if not for this). C'est la vie, 14/15 was not bad, a decent profit had been made and the thread had become interesting to others, so to me it was a good result and i more or less accepted the inevitable thread closure.

Lampus was the first one who requested i continue, a couple of others followed, so yet again i thought why not, and for the same reasons as before.

My record increased to 23/25 and the thread was attracting attention. I actually reached 32/36 at a later stage and had been doing some work from home during this latter period, but i was ready to return to the office full time. I was even thinking to stop as it takes time to choose the selection and type the write ups, so as as an alternative, thought i could create a new Saturday/Sunday thread for a period of 8 weekends only as i knew i was starting vacation on July 1st and wouldn't be able to post from where i was going. Well to cut a long story short i managed to keep both threads going anyway, even though i was back working full time.

I don't think it's coincidence my form dipped a little from this point, i simply wasn't able to review form, watch videos etc and put in the same level of effort i had been able to at home, i can't access Betfair or the forum on the company PC/mobile phone anyway. This could sound like an excuse, although it's not intended to be, but irrespective of this, i went from 32/36 to 54/65 (4 void) at close of play yesterday.

Without looking to make my head swell, i'm quite proud of the daily lay record of 44/50 (88% strike rate) although the Saturday/Sunday one (10/15 - 67%) lets me down a little, but if i'm successful today at least both threads will end in profit. This was always the ultimate goal as intimated in the early days.

There were days when i was unlucky, but equally days where i got lucky, hampered horses, photo finish head bobs and last flight mistakes being the reasons in both cases. These things tend to balance out in the long run anyway, so no hard luck stories. I feel i made significant misjudgement in 4 or 5 of the winning lays (Justify a typical example) but it's easy to say that in hindsight.

I never thought for one minute the threads would grow to the level of interest they are today. I've really enjoyed the ride and it was actually beneficial during my home stay, giving me something to get involved in rather than watch Discovery Channel (that's what we call porn over here Grin) or The Chase/Eggheads, although i actually like these.

The threads were not only about the lay, many on here contributed posts in whatever form at some stage or another, some names i had never even seen before. The well dones and back slapping was welcoming, although some of the comments elevated me to a status that wasn't warranted, but there was something else on the thread that was far more important, the fact there was no abuse, bickering, hostility or antaganism.

This wasn't my doing, it was equally shared by everyone who posted on my threads and i would like to thank every single person that did, whether it was a positive or a critique. So many thanks, the threads would not have been anywhere near as interestng without your input. It's very much appreciated and proves sensible racing debate is possible on here with just a little effort by all of us. There are a few kn@bs on the forum, but thankfully they avoided the threads.

I don't have plans to continue the threads, so my deluded followers Laugh Lampus and Ghost will have to rely on the true Messiah who i challenged to start such a lay thread yesterday (albeit more in fun). Mart (Burkey) is as mad as a box of frogs, but he's harmless and probably the most read poster on the entire forum. We all know the score with him, even if he doesn't, but he really makes me laugh sometimes. 

I've mentioned on here that i may consider a weekend thread, or maybe even a random day, but i'll decide in August and it's not a given by any means. Just typng something that makes it interesting and readable takes time. 

The full  summary of lays will be posted below, although i doubt i will be able to update it with todays selection (my airport taxi arrives at 16.00) and it's not important anyway.

Most of you are aware i'm travelling to West Java, Indonesia (3 flights Sad to spend time with my daughter (studying at Uni) and i can't post from there, but i don't need to. There's a window of opportunity when we go to Singapore for a few days, although only in certain areas (oddly enough) where i can post, but again it's very doubtful. The weeks i spend with her are quality time, and i can live without betting when i need to. I know everyone will understand this.

Finally, good luck to all and many thanks for all the kind and wonderful comments. For those that are also taking vacation, enjoy it.

See you in August Grin

Summary of Losses

Expensive Liaison - heavily backed and won on a head bob in a photo finish. I could have been 18/18 but for this result. Last of 7, beaten 16L next time out (albeit in a fillies group 3).

Glory Fighter - heavily backed. I liked the 2nd fav, Tin Hat but maybe i placed too much confidence in him (ran well in a good race since). A poor lay.

Threading - 2 NR's, 8/1 and the heavily backed 13/8f, although she wouldn't have won if her next run is a good guide. The 7L winner was impressive. A poor lay.

Luchador - 3 NR's, 6/1, 8/1 and 14/1. Won by 3/4L and a neck. 3 NR's can change complexity of a race. A tad unlucky maybe, who knows, but a loser nevertheless.

Elerfaan - I thought his previous run flattered him, once raced on very soft going, 66/1, cheap purchase etc. I under-estimated him, he was clearly the best horse and won easily by 4L, although the form is questionable. The one i thought might have won must be 'distinctly average'. A poor choice.

No Lippy - A messy race and maybe layers were unlucky with 2 runners badly hampered including the heavily backed favourite.

Roo Roo - Selected in haste due to abandonement of Kilbeggan. No excuse. A poor decision.

Justify - I didn't think he was good enough to win the Belmont stakes (3rd leg of triple crown) even though it was a poor field. In hindsight i should have left the race alone, but i'm convinced he's not the superstar he's made out to be, at least not yet.

Ravenshill - A very lucky winner. Turbo had led all the way, was travelling well, and 2L up when he made a hash of the last flight (traded at 1.05 before the mistake). Ravenshill was under strong driving at the time. The race cost layers £130 + the £50 that would have been won.

Pallaskenry - Won on a head bob in a very close photo. I thought the other one had won it. A bad lay at the office.

Lucius Tiberious - I under estimated him even though he was top rated. I should have stopped at the winner yesterday, but easy to say in hindsight. A poor lay.

The end Laugh

Has anyone worked out how Andrew picks out the race and selection in it yet?

I certainly haven’t because one day I selected 4 horses under 5/2 in small fields with the Fav on my side and 2 lost and 2 Won at 7/2 each.

Lucky I didn’t bet on them.

I showed this thread to an old friend who was a small independent bookmaker (retired) in Romford on the last day Andrew posted and he would not believe me until he read through the thread.

He said very much the same as  ‘flash bookie’ Ed Thompson had posted and these are a couple of his gems : -

“staggering is an understatement to be honest it is bloody hard to consistently find 8 and 10 chances to lay to get beat but the majesty of Andrew and this thread is that these are all very well fancied horses at the top of the market !!!!bravo”

“Andrew in Sweden although this is my first post on your thread I have followed it from the beginning and although I havn't laid all your selections (wish I had)I have laid a good few.i have been an oncourse bookmaker for over 20yrs and create my own tissues and create my own opinion on every race at each racecourse I work at on a daily basis spending between 3 and 4 hrs study on each days racing.i just want to point out it is nothing short of a miracle what you have achieved over a long period of could get a job at the BHA as an assistant handicapper or odds compiler with any big firm.what you have achieved thus far belies belief quite frankly .as a footnote I am sure your football betting is only recreational however stick to the horses please please and the sky is the limit for you regards Ed Thompson”

@flash bookie

Keep posting your input it gives us an insight from the other side and  your posts, although short, are always very interesting.

Just slip in the odd Loser now and then to let us know your human. Laugh

The last lay on this thread, so i'm hoping it bows out on a successful note to compliment the first one. I started it on April 23rd with a AOB runner, Washington DC and i'm going to finish it with a stablemate, albeit not a sprinter.8.20 The Curragh Lucius TiberiusA 3 year old 60-100 handicap with 6 runners, although only 5 can be seriously considered. Excluding the favourite, the field is quite closely knit with only 6lb between them, but the higher of these, Bucky Larsson is rated 8lb below the top weight (the lay).Ran in a couple of ordinary maidens as a 2 year old finishing 6th and 3rd, but let's ignore them, and they were run oin heavy going. On debut as a 3 year old he was 2nd of 14 in an average maiden over 10f at Navan that initially looks good on paper, but only one winner has come out of the race.His next run, again a maiden was over 10f at The Curragh that he won cosily enough, but as before, only one winner has come out of the race.He's since run 3rd of 5 in a 12f listed race at Leopardstown and 13th of 18 in a handicap at Royal Ascot.Trip, course and going should all suit, so what's not to like ?To start with he's Coolmore owned, AOB trained with Ryan Moore riding at Irelands premier course. This is going to take at least 0.5 points off the odds without even looking at form. The form figures of 03-2130 may look fine, but are they that good ?. A poor run on debut. The next run was an improvement (as you would expect) but the winner (Whirling Dervish) aside, the rest were poor. His next 2 runs, although a runner up and a win, were only average at best. The listed race was better, although the winner (joint favourite) looked useful at the time, but didn't advertise the form at Royal Ascot. The other joint favourite couldn't get into the race and was eased. This leaves the class 2 handicap at Royal Ascot where he finished down the field, albeit after a slow start.He's top rated for a reason and the obvious favourtite, but the other 4 running for the layers are not snails, are lightly raced, could improve and receive plenty of weight. I think his rating of 93 actually flatters his ability and coupled with the high profile connections will distort the true odds somewhat.I like Night Of Power who's lightly raced and ran well enough LTO trying to give 20 lbs to the winner and was beaten 1L, although has to prove himself on good to firm. The others are closely matched and anything could win, the rank outsider excepted of course. The lay is a risk, this can clearly be seen, but i don't consider it as a high risk, and based on my comments above are reasons for the lay of the day. Good luck.

I too have not had a bet since 1st July.

With Andrew having an overall profit  of £1607 @ £50 a lay  = 32.14 points profit.

Or in your case just 1.14 Cornish Pasties left.

Is that correct or have I miscalculated? Laugh Laugh

Apparently the last leg of his journey home was on a Ryanair flight and we can only assume that was for a stop-over at Ballydoyle to check on a few fairy stories and have his photo taken. Laugh

Arrived home late last night, stayed with my daughter a few extra days.

A long trek home, made worse by a delayed flight.

Thanks for all the comments, i'm still in jet lag mode but will pop by later

Welcome back Andrew, I think we can all breathe a sigh of relief in the knowledge that some much needed sanity will now be restored to the forum.

Thank you guys Laugh

From what i hear Lampus has been keeping the Cornish Pasty industry alive without any limited laying assistance from me during my absence.


sanity is something that shouldn't be mentioned on a forum post. I don't recognise the ID, but suspect it's an alter ego Wink

Thanks, I flipped through quite a few threads earlier but missed this one, surprising considering the last 3 words in the title.

Our domino is certainly one for making a statement.
