Today we have our regular Wednesday column from Malcolm Pett (http://greyhorsebot.com)
We do a lot of “open” testing at the Grey Horse Bot web site sometimes just to see how a particular idea will work out (high strike rate favourites) and sometimes to test a new system idea that looks like it could work.
Although it’s nice to see a profit from the testing sometimes the goal is just to see if a system is performing as expected.
As you know not every system will make a profit every month so a trial period may not be profitable but if the system performs as it has in the past then that is a good sign.
We started testing “Elision” back at the end of August.
This was planned as a 3 month test just to see if the ratings system we were using to help find the selections did actually continue to work as expected.
Elision is a Handicap Hurdle system and although the ratings picked the selections we added in a few other filters to help whittle down the field…
…Although because of the ratings we can still end up with more than one selection in a race.
The test has been quite revealing which you can see if you study the results page.
We have recently started to increase the amount of statistical information we supply on our results and have now added…
Longest Losing run
Predicted Longest losing Run.
Highest Bank draw down.
These along with the month by month and day by day results and the visual graph give you a good understanding of how the system is performing.
Another thing we give our customers from time to time is a report about the test which includes information about how we feel the system had performed and there is also one of these available on the results page.
I am not sure if Elision will appeal to everyone. But the fact that it made over 500 points last year and has still managed over 400 points this year should tempt you to at least have a look.
You can get all this information here.
Thank you as always for reading I really do appreciate it.
The Grey Horse Bot.
