About Larryk

Hi all, my name is Laurence and I'm a 23 year old 'student' I've done the whole law in college thing and the masters and now I'm basically back in 6th year deciding what I want to do and still have at least three years ahead of me before I do anything, be it legal or not. I'm a big sports fan from horse racing to basketball and most things in between, bar cricket. I guess out of boredom I like to look for places where bookies have things priced up differently than the odds I myself would put them at. This is a risky proposition in horse racing more than any other field in my opinion so excusing any strong hunches I have I will steer clear of the ponies and bet on the human sports for the next while. Bonne chance.

Right then, I suppose it’s only fair to start with the negatives. Every single horse I put up in yesterday’s post lost. In fairness two finished second and Holywell’s jumping cost him big time and is probably one to keep an eye one, but that’s just sugar coating the issue. At the end of the [read more]

Back in college, Kickon and I used to occasionally-ish kill an hour or two in the bookies when we were too lazy to go to class. In our unjustified optimism we used often say it was bad luck to win your first bet. Obviously the reasoning behind this was to attempt some very basic reverse [read more]
