  1. I think this was the first racing book I bought. It recorded the performance of the maximum rated (13 points) over the course of a year and it showed a reasonable profit. I checked it once over a number of following years and needless to say it showed a loss. If only racing was that easy !
  2. Picking the top prizemoney race of the day is a bit of a random selection protection. Normally the top rated race may be a class 3 or 4 race. Whilst on a quality card at Royal Ascot most of the races would be class 1 or 2. I can understand the logic of concentrating on class 1 races but not the best race on a particular day.
  3. I would argue that they are not a complete waste of time. If the average POI is -23% then a return of -48% for horses wearing a hood 1st time is significant. I do agree though that you need to dig deeper to find an edge, there are no easy ways to make a profit in this game.
  4. Thanks, also looks like horses wearing head gear for the 1st time should be avoided. I must admit I don't like a selection to be wearing head-gear.
  5. Thanks for that, doesn't seem to make much difference then. Out of interest, where do you get your data from?
  6. It probably is a good way to limit damages but I am mostly in it for the enjoyment of watching and I find I don't enjoy it the same if I am following more than one horse.

  8. Excellent tips again, only like to back one horse in a race and managed to pick the wrong ones but these things even themselves out.

  13. Thanks. I did have a look at this but I was also after historical data to do some testing and I don't think this was available. I ended up using DATAFORM for the historical data but it is quite expensive (about £10 per week).
  14. I use a spreadsheet to produce my bets so it's quite an easy task to add the results to this. Out of interest what service do you use to get the data for the days runners etc.
  15. I've been betting for over 30 years and have not found anything better than level stakes.
