Best Lay Staking Plan?

Recommended Posts

I recently got into a system that lays horses (yeah, I know, exciting), and the system has an expected strike rate of 86%, with odds varying between 3.00 and 16.0, and I am wondering what the best approach or staking plan would be for this kind of system. I was thinking of doing either the Lay 1-4 or the 1% daily compounding, my worry would be that during the 1-4 sequence I would lose while in recovery mode things could go south fast, as for the 1% stake landing 2-3 winning horses in a row could kill 4-5 days of work.

Not sure we have many layers on here but have a look at the thread regarding staking plans:ok

Staking Plans 

First and foremost thank you. :ok

 

And I will have a look into that thread, I use laying because I am terrible with selecting winners and laying just tickles my fancy because I like having the odds on my side, in this case having 5, 6, 10 horses racing for me.

If I was into laying, I wouldn't even contemplate horses priced in the region of 16.00. It's far better to back at these odds because they regularly win on a daily basis. If you do decide to lay them, expect a few nasty visits  from the devil at some point. By that I mean, randomization - and randomization regularly upsets the formbook.

Actually, I wouldn't lay over 4.00 on horses. That's because the corridor between.4.00 and 16.00 (approx.), in my opinion, favours the backer.

I would go with level stakes also because one can never know when the rot may set in and then gradually increase as the year's tick by on method or system that has stayed constant with fair profits. I myself do up my stakes on single bets occasionally ew or place mainly if all the factors I use are very high in my favor, and is a good value price maybe around 10 times each year.

    • Ayr 4.10 Scots Sonnet - 33/1 WH e/w Thanks 

      Scots Sonnet - from Jim Goldie yard who also owns it with W M Johnstone who's had a few horses with Jim the 5yo gets his first run at Jim's local track. His first three run for yard where NHF races with no success and he's been placed twice in six starts both were on Newcastle AW 2nd at 1m and 3rd at 7f he's also had two runs on turf flat in Hcp company but not successful but his first mark of 72 on AW has dropped to 65 for todays race over the 1m, I would expect the going could be good to GF in places as it was poring of rain on Sunday but from this morning its been scorching on the West Coast of Scotland 23 Degrees , Anyway take a chance on Jim's horse with Phil Dennis in saddle to find a place
