I am convinced more than ever this game is a guessing game.

That's racing Bilbo, sounds like you may not be the best judge.

Oh, and don't back odds on on a Sunday.

Know the feeling. Recover on the football, go back for more racing, and lose it all again...back a fave, it loses, lay a fave, it wins. Just can't get out of that pattern!  Sad

Once you get on the wrong zigzag it's almost impossible to get back on track.

Get it back with Cheeky Rascal.
By:

When: 28 Oct 18 15:52
I think Cheeky Rascal likely winner, but as we saw earlier hurdle experience can be an advantage.

Think Powerful Society odds against three places the bet (and small win)

"I am convinced more than ever this game is a guessing game." Not wrong. Guess when your selection is "trying"(spotting a weak, winnable race is a good pointer) and only shoot if&when the odds are worthy.

The stewards should be asking way more questions of the bent batards instead of enjoying 3 course meals and expensive wine tawats lol

pointless backing odds on imo. the only way to win, and it is very difficult to win on horse racing make no mistake, is to try and take some sort of value angle. I know a lot of people will answer with the counter "odds on shots are often value" which of course is true, but in my view for the average punter (and I would put myself in that category) then identifying value at longer odds is easier than finding ones at very short prices.

In response to BornToWin: SP odds on shots on a Sunday since 2008 resulted in 58.76% winners as opposed to 59.18% winners for all days combined.

The best day was Thursday with 60.6%, and the worst was  Friday with 57.41%. There appears to be no advantage to backing... or laying, all odds on shots on
any given day as losses would have occurred doing either. Maybe backing particular trainers odds on shots would be more fruitful!

So what you are saying is Sharapour, I was right.


It was just a flippant remark, as usual this can be misconstrued in print.


It is hard to pick 3 odds on losers on the trot. It would appear they have been purely selected as 'certs' due to their prices. No one ever won anything on racing with this approach.

Yep BTW is right - taking any category of 'odds' as an indicator of success or failure is pretty much pointless.

Every selection will have it's merits/demerits regardless of odds, so it's all about being selective in each case.

Personally, I love the fact that some days plenty odds-on shots get beaten. If it was as easy as looking at the price on selections gambling would not exist.
By:
Sharapour
When: 29 Oct 18 12:25
Yeah, I was just laying out the facts. No more, no less. Odds on shots are a good starting point as losing runs will be short, and a lot
of them can be ruled out as selections so that a small profit can be made, but selections are dramatically reduced, and those with a predisposition
to gamble...and I'm one of them, get bored and end up looking for bigger prices.

I agree MJK, that was a very poor ride on Youcantcallherthat. I actually had a back in place on it but changed my mind at the last minute.
