I am really getting to grips with the horse trading. If I take out my lucky escape I managed to sensibly build up £200. There were about 4 races where I purposely went in play and made some controlled trades. The Goodwood race really shook me up. Once the lay was taken and I realised what I had done, I just froze almost in disbelief. The price continued to shorten before it finally drifted out and I gave a huge sigh of relief. I was quite shaken up and it affected me over the next couple of races before I managed to regain my composure. Unfortunately I didn't do too well on the football but can't complain at £256.
