Yeah, that podcast is a fantastic listen, Neil…very funny in places, as well. It was mentioned in the recent blog on the topic. With regard to backing at BOG to lay on the exchanges, I guess that if you choose your selections wisely (and the approach seems best with short priced favourites) they are more likely to drift before the off, so you “win” by also not beating the odds. I haven’t got the ability to do that myself, so haven’t followed up my initial few selections. I basically rely on one of the services I follow saying that they are taking on a favourite where they can’t believe the price, but haven’t had one recently (should have got on Highland Lodge in the 3.40 at Sedgefield yesterday, but missed the 6/4 it was advised at…finished 2nd of 5 at an sp of 2/1).
Haven’t had too many issues recently, but that’s probably because I’ve had a shite few days haha. I was asked to take part in a market research session, via Stan James, last week (did it for the £60 and to see if I could take anything useful from the other punters who turned up), but it was very low rent and I didn’t learn anything. The main topic seemed to be how Unibet were going to brand the UK horse racing operation, and how to manage the transition from Stan James to Unibet, if indeed they were going to ditch the Stan James name completely.
