It is a known fact that the people who make the biggest profits from betting are those who go against the crowd. That is they have a unique angle that the main stream punters do not use or consider significant.

Or more likely the regular punter isn't prepared to put in the work required to use the alternate angle.

One such alternate angle is using the Dosage Index to calculate the likely performance of a horse from it's breeding.

Here's how Wikipedia define the Dosage Index…

The Dosage Index is a mathematical figure used by breeders of Thoroughbred race horses, and sometimes by bettors handicapping horse races, to quantify a horse's ability, or inability, to negotiate the various distances at which horse races are run. It is calculated based on an analysis of the horse's pedigree.

There are a lot of people around the world who use Dosage figures to work out the likely performance of the top flat racing horses.

But there are very few people who use it to rate the big National Hunt races. In fact there is only one person that I know of who takes this contrary view and his name is Ben ‘Contrary Mary' Aitken and he has been very successful with this approach.

Today Ben launches his National Hunt service, where he shares his full analysis of the top National Hunt races over the coming season.

This full analysis means you can use his data to find your own selections or you can take the easier route and follow Ben's own selections.

You can also download a whole host of free guides that will help you to make your own Dosage calculation.
