  1. Thanks for that, Freddie. It does make life easier.
  2. Hya Freddie, glad you’re still doing this. I’ve been following it with interest. Just one thing, mate. It was easier to track the results when you just numbered the games and then gave us a synopsis of the results. You know, Bet 123 Won, etc. Any chance of reverting to the previous format, please? Cheers, Yal
  3. It was a very poor day, but you’ve had lots of very good days. Days like yesterday happen. Ride it out. Your selection procedure seems sound. Stick with it.
  4. Freddie boy, these are amazing results. Are they the product of a system or form study? Whatever, thanks for the thread and keep ‘em coming. Yalwen
  5. Thanks for the posts. It’s been an interesting ride. See you next time.
  6. Thanks for your reply Pirate. As always, good to hear from you. This conundrum is still confusing me. What I don’t understand is that if a horse is backed to place in a 6 horse race, ignoring form for the moment, then it has 2 chances to get you the money, in the 3TBP market it has 3 chances to get you the money albeit at reduced odds. I was just thinking that there maybe a formula to determine the fair odds vis a vis each other. However, your reply makes sense. I’ll put this on one side and move on. Back to the drawing board, looking for an edge - again. Monty.
  7. The Dail Mail’s Formcast top rating is always 78, but aren’t the SF and F annotations from the Daily Mirror?
  8. Thanks for your replies. skylark2009, I am still trying to get my head round your detailed explanation which I appreciate, thank you. Billy, I have not tried this particular angle as last year I had my knuckles rapped by Betfair and it took me some time to restore the status quo in my account. I don’t really want to go down that path again without the certainty that I know what I am doing and it's ok with Betfair. Regards Yalwen
  9. I am confused and wonder if someone could assist, please. My question is regarding laying to a liability on Betfair and what is the minimum stake required. Suppose I want to lay a horse at 100 for a liability of £100, winning me the princely sum of £1.00 if the horse loses, less commission of course. Is this bet acceptable to Betfair as my ‘winnings’ of £1.00 would be below the Betfair minimum stake of £2.00 or would I need to lay for a liability of £200 to win the Betfair minimum stake of £2.00, again less commission. I’ve been trying to get my head roun
  10. Hello F.A.B. Well, you'll find no bigger sceptic than me when it comes to horse racing systems - been burnt far too many times. However, looking at today's results - I make it 5 winning races out of 7. That's a 71% strike rate - you suggested 50%. Betting at BOG bookies I get a return of 245 points against an outlay of 221 points. A profit of 24 points - not to be sneezed at. I hope the figures I have produced are correct - I've had a busy day! Once again thank you, well done and let's hope it continues. With your 50+ years experience I'm sure you've learned plenty. Regard
  11. F.A.B. Thanks for your system idea and credit to you for putting your selections up here before racing. This is an area that I have explored before without success and I must say that to take money off the bookies you are going to need a far higher strike rate than 50% as the selections are all at the front end of the market and at least two of them must lose. I am confused where you get your prices from. Is it from a newspaper betting forecast or from the bookies, in this case Paddypower? Anyway, thanks once again for opening up on your system rules and also the qualifiers for
  12. I appreciate your spread sheets, too, Bubbles. There's a lot of work gone into collecting and presenting the data and I thank you. Should give me an interesting day or two looking through the stats. Cheers.
  13. It’s been an interesting ride. Thanks for the effort that you’ve put in and massive congratulations on the results. Look forward to you doing it all again next time. Enjoy spending the winnings!
