Not in 5f, 6f, 7f handicap races without odds on favourites.
IF the handicapper has done his/her job properly then in theory they should all finish together. Obviously that doesn't happen very often but coming off the bend with a short run in will cause on-course traders and fast picture punters to cause havoc in the markets by pulling monies one side or the other. By laying the field pre-off at pre-determined odds means you will get matched quicker than trying to do it in-play with a slow feed.
Like I said, blindly laying all runners, every race will lead to no advantage and the poor house.
- 5f, 6f, 7f
- Short run in off the bend
- No odds on favourites
- Lay the field pre-off @ 50% of the favourites price
So, if the favourites price is 3 lay @ 1.5, 4 Lay @ 2.0, 5 Lay @ 2.5 etc.
Forget about trying to lay the field below 1.5. Yes it can be profitable but there is another twist which you need to take into account and if I give that away then I will be hurting my bottom line.
Use small stakes to start with until you are confident in the above. You only need about 10 races per week to make some good money once you start upsizing. But one step at a time. Pick your races, start small. Forget about becoming rich overnight. There are patterns, you need to find them and then before long you will be kicking yourself as to why you didn't think of it before!!!!!!
