Yeah, I did question it as well but I'm a bit of YouGov fan so assumed they'd complied well. Which poll was closest in the end?

In hindsight seems obvious really - audience is TV viewers - TV polls?

Ah! That pretty well explains it then - shows the importance of key information.

Have i not learnt a think from last week :(
I think you have to remember these things:
1) Never bet more than you are comfortable losing.
2) Find an edge (whatever this may be) - for me it's backing short odds - others hate doing this - whatever works for you.
3) Ultimately though it is gambling which can be very addictive and the lows feel so much worse than the highs.

That's never been my method. Building a big position on runner and then laying when the price tumbles (hopefully) has always been my way.
