Goodwood System

You know I'm a fan of systems.

Mainly that's because I can follow some strict rules and the system can make betting decisions for me.

Most of the systems I create can be automated by a racing database and once I've created them then the selections are just sent to me each day.

But I'm aware that I could probably be making more money if I used systems that were not created from data that is available to everybody.

In the old days I would spend hours, days even weeks back checking a system idea with my old copies of the Racing Post or Sporting Life.

And in some ways winning was easier then, because by putting in the hours with old papers I was doing something that was too much effort for many punters.

And that is always the way. If you put in more work, or if you use data that is not available to the betting public then you are more likely to win because you can exploit an angle that is not being used by the majority of bettors.

Another way to create winning systems is from years of experience and record keeping of winning bets.

Analysing past records can show you where your profit comes from and allow you to simplify the selection method and boil it down into a winning system.

There will always be more profit in a system like this because it is bloody hard and relies on the initial skill to select winners and on the patience to analyse years of real bets.

I've been reminded of all of this recently by Carl Nicholson of Value Backing who has put together a selection of what he is calling Pro Grade Betting Systems (including a Glorious Goodwood system)

Galway 7:15 Expensive Taste – each way bet 12\1

Take Advantage of the Frankie Factor

Do you remember the day that Frankie Dettori went through the card at Ascot?

If you don't remember then you have surely heard of it.

As the meeting progressed the bookies realised that they had 50p and £1 accumulators running into 6 figure liabilities.

And so they slashed the prices on Frankie's mounts.

In the last Fujiyama Crest should have been a 12/1 shot, but the weight of money from the big bookmaker chains forced that in to 2/1 to limit their liabilities.

And in reality the money they sent to the course should have shortened it to odds on, but for the brave on course bookies who decided a 7 timer was impossible and to lay it for all they had.

Barry Dennis stood it for £23,000 (this was 1996) when his previous biggest losing day had been £5,000.

He was convinced he had done the right thing. He was laying a 12/1 shot at 2/1, you can't get better value than that!

Gary Wiltshire was much bolder about taking the value and faced liabilities of £800,000 and a very difficult few years, having had to sell his house and cars.

Of course things have changed since then, with everybody linked up to Betfair.

But small stake accumulators still have an impact on betting markets and today I have details of a free system which exploits this situation to make us regular profits.
