Well that's it - another year over.
The stats collection on better class races now rises to 31 years of data.
The trainer data on computer will be 19 years when this years input is completed.
Does it pay? Probably not, especially when you take into account Raceform Interactive and newpaper costs.
Any hobby is costly though but this years betting has not been at a loss.
Using the Express & Mirror spot data landed me a £20 ew double in October which was quite amazing considering the small amount
of data input at the time. I rarely back in doubles and was just testing the data. The £800+ win ensured a good Christmas.
The November Hcp stats landed a 20/1 winner and £300 profit on the race.
Overall I'm only about £300 in profit on the season though.
Now it's a case of finishing the data input and evaluating each trainer file to ascertain the positives and negatives.
Then there's the Express & Mirror spot data to incorporate and evaluate plus the addition of speed figures.
Also having cut n pasted the 10 year trends for all races from June there is the exploration of those race trends.
The filing cabinets will be sorted into order to allow an easy daily pull out.
All in all I want an easy pull out of the positive and negative daily data, without the laborious searching via computer and paperwork.
I've been attempting to get to that position for a few years but usually get distracted with AW racing and bumper races.
This winter I'm giving the bumpers a miss and will stick to a small Mark Johnston AW database prepared last year.
That's the plan anyway!!!
