Short priced favourites

22/10/2011 | By More

I have a tendency to look to lay short priced favourites but this weekend there are two that appear nailed on to win. First up this morning was Black Caviar, 14 wins out of 14 and going for the 15th at just 1.05. A bloodless victory saw her romp home and send her forward to Flemington next where she is likely to encounter more opposition. I think this is the shortest price I have ever seen a horse go off in a group race.

Next up will be New Zealand in the Rugby world up final. I’ve really enjoy the Rugby this year and learnt a lot from it. I’ve never traded it much before and the world cup was an opportunity to experiment and learn. The key element for me was that points are constructed in a slower manner than other sports and that makes it interesting.

The final looks very similar to the last final in 1997 between South Africa and England. France have stumbled to the final in unconvincing fashion and New Zealand should be able to dispatch them easily. Though it’s worth nothing that only two previous hosts have won the competition and England only lost 15-6 in 2007. It’s still hard to see beyond New Zealand at 1.13 however, the tournament is theirs to lose. Betdaq are offering commission back if New Zealand win by 15 points or more. Worth a look.
