any of you guys on here ever fell into a habit of getting involved in a market when you shouldn’t have, then look back & think why the bobbins did I pull the trigger there

:) Reminds me of a quote I saw the other day that I can imagine my automation saying in a few years.....

HAL9000: I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission.

(btw 2001 A Space Odyssey...the book it's based on was written in 1948!!!)

Yes, quite often, when I'm bored. I have come to terms with it, seems like it's a part of me.
But nothing serious, it's like visiting a casino on a vacation, pure relaxation gambling.

I think his lawyer said that. 26yrs inside looks like losing from Mr Mandela's perspective.

That's a weird angle at Down Royal, I wonder how many thought Marelly won there.

The BFSP of one of the runners in Ireland today was "Infinity". I watched it being formed at the time and there were no back bets at all. I've never seen that before.

This reminded me of a race from many years ago when I was purely a punter. I'd had a bet in an Irish race at Gowran I think. My horse a 12/1 shot had wandered a bit in the closing stages but looked in the photo to have won just like here. It was 1/10 in-running to win the photo. I couldn't believe it when the result went to the other horse.

Marelly was 1.14 when it crossed the line.

Then £1000's traded between 1.10 to a low of 1.02.

Bonkers, though bet some clever ones figured out the bias in the angle and coined in...
