Our newly formed Strategy Team picked a perfect day to head to Haydock Races to see if their strategy skills could bring them success on the betting front.
One half of our maroon trousered Northern duo, Nico Sarti, started the day in fine fettle by winning the first race, the less said about the other half, Chris Hughes’ betting performance the better, the closest he got was by backing Bold Sir Brian in honour of our Director of Operations, Bryan Sayle.
Nicola Drury, high on confidence after impressing with her grasp of the Italian language earlier on in the day, religiously stuck to the tips she had been given by her horse racing expert contact (the rumours are that he goes by the name of Bernard, this cannot be confirmed).
The final two members of the team, Stacey Birkett and Nick Bazley went for the strategy of low stake, high winnings by backing a number of long shots.
After a brilliant day of sun, beer and horse racing it was back to Manchester to reflect and decide upon the next day out. But for now it’s back to work to create unique consumer experiences.
