It's an interesting time to be involved in horse racing. We have never before experienced anything like it, with no frame of reference. Post lockdown racing is very different, but steadily returning to some recognisable normality.
Like everyone in the racing business I have opinions regarding the new race schedule, the effect its had on racing, and how its impacted betting on UK horse racing.
With any major event that occurs within all industry sectors and has a financial impact, there will be winners and losers.
If the stock market crashes and businesses go under, you can bet someone is at the other end of that disaster rubbing their hands making money.
That is just part of living in a capitalist society, whether we like it or not right or wrong, when someone wins typically someone else loses. Never more so than on the Betfair exchange, which is set up for that very purpose, you're betting against another member at all times, and when you win they lose.
My goals for Exponential Bet over the coming weeks and months as we uncover deeper patterns emerging with the new racing schedule, is to exploit this for our members, both with the automated strategies Remote Daily Betting and JV MK2 Betting System which are trend based anyway, but also turning my attention back to the Trading Service looking to introduce a new pattern of swing trading available for members.
The original Trading update will be added either along side or shortly afterwards, as the timing has to be right given that was created while trading the pre lockdown racing.
We have an opportunity to make the most out of this shift in racing, and instead of seeing it as just this huge disruption it obviously was to the industry, to instead look at what we have to work with right now, and capitalise on the trends as they adapt over the coming weeks and months seems the better way to look at it.
I'll have more information on this soon asap, as we've just finished expanding Researcher to do what I need it to in order to assess larger areas of the current race card.
I'll be able to look ahead with more clarity over the immediate few months, and have a deeper analysis of race trend based information to then tune up the automated betting systems as things develop over time, while closing down trading opportunities I'll include in the swing trade update.
It's just been a week since we restarted betting for Exponential Bet, but we've been working over lockdown, and also since racing restarted on the 1st June, but it's finally starting to feel like a clearer image is forming for how we can take the best steps forward with what we have to work with.
I will come back to this very soon and expand on this a lot more, as this is my primary focus for Exponential Bet members for the remainder of this year.
As it needs my full attention, and has the potential to massively improve the returns for RDB and JV MK2, while delivering a very smart profitable Trading Service. If we can settle on this as we wrap up this very weird 2020, I'll be satisfied.
