Which particular sites are you referring to?

Personally I prefer to make my own ratings rather than follow somebody else.

I get ratings from a site advancedratings.net

 

If I knew how to make my own ratings I would, any tips on how you do this would be appreciated..

What apps or websites, apart from Racing Post, do you use? 

I am very keen to learn. 

Thanks!

1/4 shots have an implied probability of 80% therefore should  lose approx 20% of the time
In 1000 bets there will be approx 200 losers not 4
Its the 200 losers that have an Implied probability losing sequence ratio of 4 (4.29) in 1000 bets
 

I believe that's the same advice advocated by Dave Nevison (Failed Gambler,failed tipster) in one of his books who now sells his wares on Racing TV as some sort of expert mustn't be paying him that much as he looks like a tramp whose just slept in a skip when Ive seen him on tv.
Mind you John McCririck made a decent living out of talking crap and he was a failed bookie as well so couldn't do it as a pundit a poacher or a gamekeeper.

 

Many thanks for putting me straight 🙂

Please don't put me in the same bracket as Nevison 😂😂

I’ve just started trying to do my own. All I can say is that you’ll probably have a few unsuccessful attempts before you hit on to something. I’m not saying I’m on to something now, but I feel I’ve progressed since earlier in the year. Mine are pretty basic but there’s some great advice on here from the people that post on here , although it can be mind boggling.

Is there anyone on tv who talks sense? I find most of them less informative  than old man joe in the bookies

YES Jason Weaver

He gives a jockey/horseman's view rather than actual tips but does make sense

To be honest i like the itv set up and think the panel/experts  do a  good job.

Chapman  asks some probing questions and some tounge and cheek ones  i  don't mind him at all.

 

I enjoy the show(morning show) and the actual racing in the afternoon. I like chapman, and enjoy watching him wind up people, especially on those Cheltenham preview nights.

Anyway he said never be put off by the price no matter how big the odds, never bet odds on, and never go E/W. 

Generally due to the longshot / favourite bias it is difficult to make long term profits backing big priced selections.

Many of my best bets have been odds on.

In certain situations each way bets make sense, often when there is an odds on favourite. It all depends on the shape of the betting and the number of runners. My most profitable strategy over the last few years has been taking advantage of the extra place races offered by bookmakers. Sadly due to restrictions these opportunities are now few and far between.

Barry Hills is the man in question. I’d find  it hard not to go ew on a certain price.
