Matchbook Traders Workshops

After the runaway success of the inaugural Matchbook Traders Conference in October, the realisation of a dream I had several years ago after finding like minds who had a similar idea in mind, the sponsors are understandably keen to keep the momentum running with a series of smaller events.





One of the topics which struck a chord with many in the audience was Programming in R. The conference session, Intro to R, was delivered by Tom Heslop, @UTVilla, a self-taught R programmer, and there was plenty of feedback wanting to take that knowledge to a higher level.

So now it's here...

Matchbook is pleased to present the Matchbook Trader Workshops - the same spirit and fun as the Matchbook Traders Conference condensed into one evening of accelerated learning.



Focusing on six trading topics, workshop series will offer in-depth education, analysis and focus on hands-on and practical takeaways.

The first of the six series will be held this December 8th at the St. Ermin’s Hotel in Central London.

Workshop #1 - A Statistical Football Model in R lead by Luigi Colombo, the Head of the Quantitative Team at Smartodds.

lay the field - my favourite racing strategy

Dabbling with laying the field in-running at various prices today, not just one price, but several in the same race. Got several matched in the previous race at Brighton, then this race came along at Nottingham. Such a long straight at Nottingham makes punters often over-react and think the finish line is closer than it actually is. As you can see by the number of bets matched, there was plenty of volatility in this in-play market. It's rare you'll get a complete wipe-out with one horse getting matched at all levels, but it can happen, so don't give yourself too much risk...

The Melbourne Cup preview 2019

Once again a fine international field has been assembled and it's worth a deep look at the race. So get a cuppa and find a comfortable seat to plough your way through my preview!

Last year's impressive winner who doesn't get the 3yo weight advantage this time. Won first up at Meydan in March but has run fourth, third, fourth in the big set weights staying races in England and Ireland, never quite making it as the next big staying star. While running close behind Stradivar…

Westow Stakes - York 16/5/19

The sun was out for a glorious opening day of the meeting, and races down the straight appeared to have no concerns about draw bias. Thursday's card has a few higher profile races but this 3yo sprint is worth watching closely, tomorrow and for future form.

Soldier's Call - flying machine, winning four of six starts in Britain last season, running third in the Prix L'Abbaye, beaten a neck at WFA then finished sixth as joint favourite in the BC Juvenile Turf Sprint. Has plenty on these on ratings, but life's rarely that simple with unexposed 3yos early in the season.

Broken Spear - more exposed than most of these and well beaten by Garrus first up. Missed Chester last week, probably due to the rain (or a poor draw). Pass.

Charming Kid - won at this meeting last season but has been a little erratic ever since. Well beaten on AW Championships Day, appears to be a few lengths off these.

Garrus -…
