If you are looking for horses to lay a good strategy is to look at favourites.
Look for horses that have been made favourite that are false.
False Favourites pop up everyday for a number of reasons.
As Sam Ringsell says
These are the horses that the Racing Post odds setters consider to be the horses most likely to win the race, but in the races that we select they are wrong around 85% of the time. Trainers are placing these horses in races that they just can't win and these are the favourites that we use to our advantage.
A great way to get started with your own laying strategy is to look at the short favourites for the days racing.
And then look for reasons why they can't win. Things like unproven on the ground or at the distance.
Look at the competition to see if there is a horse that might improve or that is unexposed.
If you follow along with the racing and especially the performance of short favourites for just a few weeks you will get a feel for what is a good bet and what should be layed. It isn't that hard but just needs application of your little grey matter as Poiret would say.
