Lesson Number 1…. Avoid wet tracks.
Statistically the odds are all against it but there are some horses that race consistently on wet tracks but baulk at firmer tracks. Over the past few years wet tracks have been few and in between. January and February are probably the two driest months of the year and that is why John Furgals results have been as high as 60% winners at that time almost every year. But because that can’t be relied on to extend into the year itself, John has switched to the sort of horses that provide lower strike rates but all year around, and many good e/w selections, so that in the worst ,wettest months, of the year the near 60% place strike keeps us in the game.
Lesson Number 2….Always use Money Factory. So on the busiest days there might be 8 or 10 selections but mostly 3 or 4 except Saturdays of course. I know many subscribers simply cannot be there everyday to place the selections in time order to take advantage of the staking. This is why there is a built in ability to have multiple banks so for example the first plan could be called Race1, then Race 2 , Race 3 etc. so at the beginning of the day all selections can be backed at once. And Yes! It does mean you either have a lot more money (each Bank requires the same amount) OR you divide your available cash between the plans you have.
My ideal would be 5 Plans as most days have fewer than this number of selections except perhaps Saturdays and on those days you can place selections one to five and then for the extra selections add them in after the early results are known.
Psychologically it manes you have to be prepared for the longterm. Initially you may well have four winning banks and one losing bank which is continually losing. It is just a fluke of where the selections fall but ultimately ALL Banks will produce a profit.
A strategy some Members use is to add a good win to a Bank that is struggling and the Money Factory is set up so you can amend both the outlay and result. It produces a flatter result but makes the journey more comfortable.
John Furgals average 30% win rate at near $4 average provides some fabulous Bank clearing winners. Money Factory users will know what I mean. So using his selections would require a minimum Bank of $5,000 in my view and then adding to the Bank as wins come in would get you eventually to $50,000 which could produce a result of $1,000 or more a week for the investment of a few minutes each day but even a $100 or $200 a week on a lower Bank easily covers your annual cost of $2200 or monthly $220. The Money Factory program costs $25 a month so negligible.
Our other current service is hitting at 30% @ $3+ average but provides around 500 selections a month compared to John Furgals service @ 80 to a 100 selections a month. It obviously requires more attention to operate but with a far bigger turnover more actual dollars can land in your pocket.
The truth is you can operate a number of plans that my many books have revealed over the years including my latest one How To Win @ HorseRacing2Day, the key thing in all plans is that the Money Factory can provide a far better return than level stakes most of the time and the only reason to ever drop out is if the user fails to have the patience and persistence to use it’s power.
