Hello,

I'm new to match betting and after completing the coral offer successfully on profit accumulator have moved on to betfred but seem to have messed up.

I placed the bet on River Wylde on today's 2.40 Aintree and following the instructions lay the same horse on betfair but I have lost on both accounts, any idea what I've done wrong?

I'm very new to betting to still learning a lot!

Thanks

Look like he ran and came 5th

You did use betfair on the EXCHANGE side didn't you and not Sportsbook?

You also did you the LAY box (pink one)?

I don't think so he came 5th out of 9?

Thinking I should've stuck with football which I understand more!

So seems i layed river wylde to loose against moon racer but river wylde beat moon racer so the bet lost.

Thought I had followed the instructor to a third but must've picked the wrong bet on odds matcher or the wrong bet on betfair, still have lots to learn it seems!

Thanks for your help

Also think about using Smarkets as the exchange - do have less markets (but also less chances to mess up - they didn't have the market you used on Betfair), but 60% less commission.
