Happy Xmas, New Year and all that Bollox!

Well that was a pretty quiet, expensive and yet enjoyable Xmas! Visted a couple of local boozers on Xmas eve (and there's pretty much not many left around these parts) and partook of a few sherberts but didn't go too mad and was back in bed before midnight.

I took the opportunity to cook Xmas dinner this year and it all went rather well, if somewhat delayed. A few bottles of Hoegaarden were then consumed on Xmas day and it was all pretty civilised. Unfortunately I've been like a human dustbin over the last few days and I'm starting to get that 'Big Daddy' kind of physique.

The racing kicked back into action on Boxing Day and it's always a bit of a nightmare with races clashing and non-existant liquidity in some of the wankier meetings. Unfortunately I then picked up the lurgi so I'm hoping to shift that before 31/12 as we're supposed to be off to the coast for a monster beer session.


+£52.71. Now although my daily total was nothing to write home about I did feel a lot more aggressive today so I felt relatively happy and if I continue in the same way then the increase in profits should materialise.


+£113.48 I started off very poorly today but then had a nice win in a race at Kempton which put me back in profit. The only downside was the loss in the last race of the day which is always a bit of a bummer.


+£564.68. I think that I might change the way in which I do my blog next year and maybe just do weekly updates on my P&L? I'll also try and make it more lighthearted and try not to moan so much!

After my nice win I was giving it 'whos the fucking daddy' (appropriately see above) at the top of my voice and later in the day my missus said 'I could hear you screaming from upstairs ..... so did you have nice win' .... doh!


Suffering a bit from a cold today and I'm hoping that I can shift it over the next couple of days in time for our coastal New Year celebrations. 

All I need to do now is search for one of those websites that has erotic audio recordings and find one that has a script along the lines of 'give it to me big boy, harder, faster, deeper, etc'. From now on it's going to be 'just going for an early night tonight darling' as I wander off and lock myself in my bedroom with my Ipod, plastic minge, a copy of Razzle ...

... and copious amounts of lube!!

Alright viewers, I'm ready for my close-up ...

Yep it's time for a few more videos! I got myself a new webcam and I've had some emails recently asking me to be a bit more specific about how I trade so I thought that I'd do my daily vid again.

I've mentioned previously that I've become a lazy bum over the last few weeks, so something has to change! I've been missing gym sessions, eating all the wrong stuff and haven't even been bothered to keep my horse notes up to date, which is a very poor effort.

So once again I need to get my ass into gear and sort my life out! Right, where do I start:

horse notes: now this study proved invaluable during the summer as I had one or two nice wins which came as a direct result of my notes. So each morning I'll be spending some time watching the replays and getting my notes back up-to-date.

gym & diet: it's back to a regular gym routine and decent diet. I want to be in half decent shape before we get to the start of 2015 so that I have a decent chance of being super ripped for next summer. 

increased stakes & aggression: I've pretty much fallen back to lower stakes instead of kicking-on. Now that's just fucking stupid and I need to grow some balls and start winning some decent cash (fuck I remember posting the exact same goal fucking ages ago).

So happy Xmas and all that bollox and lets's go .....


+£82.43. Would have been a better day if I hadn't lost the £60+ in the 3 runner race at Kempton, but in hindsight there wasn't much that I could do about it ...

It's 10:39 so I should just have about enough time to watch the replays of yesterday's racing and update my notes. Oh deep joy!


+£66.23. I pretty much had only one trade of note today, but with only three really poor meetings on ATR any kind of profit was a bonus ...


+£269.74. A good result today and probably no co-incidence that it was three meetings on RUK today! If the wankers at ATR could improve the picture speed then we might all have a chance but they obviously have some hidden agenda as to why they want to keep the ludicrous delay?


+£107.44. A pretty steady day today and scraped into three figures. More RUK goodness and generally I can stomach the ATR/BF Live pics from any of the Irish courses as the markets are slightly different ... it's just that it's practically impossible to get anything from the GB based tracks that are on ATR.


+£88.23. I did kind of OK during the day but managed fuck-all, unsurprisingly, trying to play Wolverhampton and Dundalk in the evening.


+£45.70. A day of ups and downs but just managed to scrape into a profit through some late wins at Wolverhampton of all places!!


-£146.04. One bad bet and one bad trade destroyed the day, which was otherwise very un-inspiring!


-£87.69 Oh fucking deep joy! Couldn't do a thing right today and following yesterday's poor effort that kinda made me FUCKING MAD!!


+£41.83. Today's mission was to get any sort of winning score on the board. The racing was a fucking useless bag of shite and all on ATR so that was easier said than done. To be quite honest I felt quite happy with the result as another losing day would have seeen me jumping off a very high bridge!


-£71.95. Oh dear! These losing days are becoming a habit! It's funny how a few losing trades/bets can affect your confidence. It seemed that everything that I touched turned to shite. Now in hindsight the fact is that yes I did have a bit of bad luck once or twice but all of the other losing trades were probably a result of bad decisions.

The racing has been poor this week and most of the coverage has been on ATR and this has meant that I've maybe tried to force opportunities in order to try and win some cash. It's obvious that this type of trading erodes any edge that you may normally have and therefore puts you in much riskier positions.


So the simple answer is to re-group and look to trade effectively as opposed to trying to force the issue. When you have bad days then it's really important to identify where you went wrong as this helps you to become a much better trader and therefore helps turn that negative feeling into a positive one.   


+£52.58. A nice steady day where I played cautiously and importantly only experienced 2 minor losses so I'll settle for that after my poor results this week ...


+£152.77. The ironic thing about today's win was that I was playing off much smaller stakes than normal following my poor efforts earlier in the week. However, it's still satisying to get back into 3 figure territory, especially when it's a win as opposed to a loss!


+£87.43. I kept my stakes low again today and avoided any big losses. So although it wasn't a brilliant total for a Saturday once again it was OK as I was just looking to get another green day under my belt ...


+£13.35. Gloomy Sunday indeed!

Felt like slitting my wrists while listening to a bit of Sinead O Connor ....


+£59.97. There's no better way than to follow a boring Sunday with an exciting Monday with racing from Ffos, Plumpton and Wolves! I almost cum im my pants!! Thank fuck for the £70 win halfway through the day!

... and some more Sinead O'Connor with a classic Pink Floyd track ..... enjoy ...


+£33.92. Just never got going today ...


+£142.40. Getting back into 3 figure profit territory is always nice even though most of it came from an early race at Newbury.


+£39.55. I was heading for another losing day today until I had a late win at Kempton which saved me from having to highlight another day's total in bold red!


+£78.81. A few small wins and no losses meant that I could take my £70+ and go out on the piss with my great mates who I have known since I was 8 or 9 years old.


+£43.68. Was feeling slightly jaded after last night's beerathon so I played quite cautiously and once again avoided any losses but still only made fuck all!


-£3.27. What a dozy cunt I am! I sat here all fucking afternoon nicking a few quid each race and then go and blow it all on the last fucking race of the day! I'm fucking useless!

I'm fucked-off with winning fuck all every fucking day. I've had enough and from now on I'm going to give it fucking large every fucking day. No more pussy footing about. This blog is about to go fucking mental with some fucking huge wins .... so bollox fuck wank tits wank bollox here I come!

I think that from now on before I sit down to trade every day I need to get myself into 'the zone' with a positive mental attitude with a hint of aggressiveness. I've just done a quick bit of research and having an attitude somewhat like this should do the trick I think ...
