Back a horse at 1/9, even if you got 93% winners it's a small percentage profit with large potential losses. At odds of 3/1 a 20% profit from 30% winners is achievable with far less risk.
Not sure giving a small edge to laying 9/1 shots versus backing 3/1 shots with a large edge really backs up your argument
From my limited experience I've always found any edges are usually better at the extremes of the odds ladder rather than the middle, maybe that's down to the way the crowd are happier to offer better value at those prices due to the likely risks of a) It winning, i.e underestimating long shots or b) the losses involved laying shorties c) the limited increments lower down the ladder to offer true value, who can say.
