These are the only selections that came up for me after most tracks were very slow or very heavy. With a 25%/50% win place record these selections while quite profitable over time can easily have long lapses inbetween. Sandown for example , if further downgraded , would not be worth the investment.
Ascot is probably okay but at this stage we do not have the fianl scratchings. Obviously if the track is okay and they are running then go ahead.
Interesting thing is that there are relatively few scratcjhings at Randwick. Most of the runners in the Black Type races would have been aimed at todays events. The Sydney Cup for example, could qualify a horse for the Melbourne Cup. You can’t qualify if you’re not in it in the first place. And the Sydney Cup is contested by better horses these days.
Be careful today and take fewer risks. Mostly I would suggest dont invest onheavy tracks at all.
SPORTSBET was forced to admit in a Seante enquiry that it did in fact stop many punters from investing on their platform. Reasons given were “investing for others” “having an intimate knowledge of certain horses. e.g owners or trainers etc. but only of course if they are winners.” In other words if they detect you are a dumb mug punter you are welcome but if not, e.g. “a regular winner” they have little interest in you.
It was suggested in the enquiry that Sportsbet had 2.2 million punters on thier books. Australia owned Bluebet, which is a late comer, has only just over 100,00.
