Will try and answer your question about whether my betting evolved -Yes. Mostly through necessity. When I started betting seriously it was pre-Betfair and hence I was betting with bookmakers. In those days the early price opportunities with bookmakers gave you MUCH better value because the Betfair markets didn't exist and cause the prices to be slashed before you could bet. Can recall plenty of times backing horses (average stake at the time 200-500 quid) at more than double the SP. You could win more before you got your accounts closed in those days. On Betfair I didn't intentionally change my strategy but basically gave up with large sections of the racing partly due to not wanting to put the same level of effort in and partly due to declining liqudity. Cheers for your Lion Hearted comments. No surprise the TF was so poor last time given the ridiculously slow pace they went. Still maintain he's done well to win given how hard he pulled. Should be back next week at Chelmsford.
exactly being able to win off that slow pace last time out and the previous win, when lion hearted achieved that TS 76, were all positives. well done to yourself and connections.
