Yesterday I was dutching a few races at the lay price to 75% book, I would not normally trade this way.

I was only playing with £10 stakes.

So basically I took approx 1/2 the number of runners in the field and guess what the next in the betting market won which I did not include.

This happened a couple of times yesterday, maybe when dutching include a rule = ( dutch the number of selections + the next in the betting you were going to miss out )

:D

Have you tried 'Variable Dutching'?

The simple rule is if you dutch half the selections in the field you can expect to lose quite often!

You haven't explained how you chose the selections you dutched or why you felt you had an edge.

A little reading to fill a quiet day...for those who don't know where the term 'Dutching' came from.

I dutch horses everyday that in races that have Favourites win % at 40% or more (found in Racing Post). I dutch the number of horses to odds of 1.5 and win about 77% of the time, so I use a PRO staking plan and stop when I've made 5% profit of my bank and restart every day. I usually have about 2 debit days a months but the staking still makes a profit every month (though I did have 1 debit month last June at -22.54%) but on average I made about 120% per month.

What exactly is the point of stopping for the day at 5% ?

By restricting your betting, losers are better of, winners are worse off!

The old Dawson system was a so-called professional (Martingale) staking plan designed to earn a living from betting.

I hope it's not one of those Mark ?
