Come on Snap.  Time to get back on the horse, so to speak.

You only have to look at today's Navan thread to see that tipping horses is a tough game.  There is no shame in tipping 16 straight losers.

Snap, if in future your tip is an each way selection kindly indicate this in advance.

17th straight losers means that on the law of probabilities you are about to hit the Mother of all winning streaks,  You know it.  Magic MD knows it.

So Man Up and throw up  handful of NAPS for tomorrow please.

I couldn't win on the horses Pa even when I had a (relatively) decent supply of information.

Tryng to pick them purely on form and coming out ahead is way beyond my capabilities I'm afraid. I enjoy trying now and again but sharing my selections with others would help nobody I am afraid.

I can keep my head above water, usually, on football, tennis or rugby.

galway man you seem to assume a lot.are you vertically challenged by any chance?i backed the first 4 winners he gave(based on last yrs good tipping from md)i then missed a few.i backed a few losers.any that were ew prices i done ew.i then took a pull.i backed last 2 ew to neutral results.so over all id say im still slightly up but not a lot.why do you think im backing them blindly?is it beacause i support anyone who has the balls to come on here and tip a few?with the result when he hits a few losers he faces getting slagged?i know md gets good info and id say when he hits winner the floodgates could open.

Fair play, Snap.  Most men quit just when they are about to succeed.
Report db1974 October 26, 2012 1:22 PM BST
Surely with the each-way betting you have to take a long-term view as opposed to trying to save your stake on every race. IMO you shouldn't be backing horses that short each-way regularly. The only circumstances I could justify backing them each-way are

1. If there is an odds-on favourite in the race and there are 5 or 8-10 runners in the race
2. If you really fancy something and are having a good cut at something and don't want to wipe out your bank.

After that I believe that it is as hard (if not harder) to make money on the place side of things as the win side so you're better off backing win only

Suppose you back 5 horses and they are all 5/1

1 wins and 4 lose so you have made a profit on the win part of the bet irrespective of how the losers actually run (ie it doesn't matter if they are beaten a head or a distance)

If you are backing each-way you need at least 2 of the other 4 horses to place in order to not lose money on the place part of the bet, and that's at 1/4 the odds

I know the counter argument is that if there are no winners from the 5 then you have saved money but again, IMO in the long term most competent punters will eventually be profitable on the win-part of backing the 5/1 shots

I'm not against each-way betting by any stretch but in the long run I believe that punters are better off saving it for the longer-priced runners (16/1+). I have to admit it has taken me years to come to this conclusion and I often regret not backing each-way (eg Aiken at 10/1 last Saturday) but I just have to keep reminding myself that it'll all come good in the end (I hope)!

Each to their own though and if it works for you then don't let me stop you
