For the third Carnival day running our High Strikers had a bad day, not even the option to quit when in front but in hindsight you can imagine why. Big fields, varying track conditions. It follows a run of very good success for a couple of months. But everything that can happen in Racing does.
Yesterday only 30% of favourites won and at a crippling loss of 30% but both HR2D Top Two and Winform Top Two had winning days…why? The average dividend was much higher than average with the much smaller number of favourites winning. Winform scored a $49 winner but that wasn’t the only relative longshot HR2D won with the 2nd 3rd 4th and 5th favourite options with Winform it was 3rd to 7th that produced the winnings. I imagine Amelias method from her book Punting In The New Millenium would have killed it. David M actually purchased a copy yesterday and this is a book that was printed twice and ran out in hard copy in 2003 yest it is still winning.. We dont sell as many books these days because they are all old yet people still look for punting publications from the 80’s..why? Because knowledge is precious and never goes out of style.
I invented Winform Ratings in the late 60’s and never published it to the public until the late 80’s but it still works today and it has been used in Europe, America, New Zealand and the UK ,Hong Kong and Singapore with success. Yet we still get dickheads who ask about our credentials…where have they been hiding?
Someone actually said the other day on YouTUbe because Prince Of Arran didnt win (we recommended it each way so successful selection in any language) that we were hopeless and as bad as Tom Waterhouse. Golly Tom wasn’t even born when we started out.
You know where the money is? Professional form assessments and professional staking. Recently I have teamed up with David using our ratings and his form assessments and staking ideas to attack the Quaddie over the carnival, well by adding our ideas together we collected $20,000, $50,000 and Saturday $12,000, there were others a lot less notable. It compares favourably with last years 6 Quaddies up to $11,000 over the Carnival. Davids startegy included taking one or two standouts in one leg, sometimes two, and taking the field in races that any form expert would call a lottery. Basically we were spending about $500 to $600 on average and some nice payouts.
Our stats say we get 67% winning races in our top 5 but for Quaddie legs it is less than that simply because the quaddie legs mostly have the biggest fields of the day. So expect 15% collects is about right.
