I like dutching......it's my way of doing 'each ways' ( of which I am not a fan ).
Pete Think that I might have been me - love a dutch bet - best everSee, i'm the opposite.
With an each way you don't have "dead money" in a race.
If you back two to win, one of your bets has already lost.
I can't get my head round that.
There used to be a guy on here a few years ago now that would back two in handicap races, he got some great results from it. Can't remember the guys name now else i'd go look up one of his threads ... any of the old-timers remember who i'm talking about ? I want to say Tony .. but I have no idea where I pulled that name from ??
It seems to work for you, and I do like that there are so many different angles into races. If we all did it the same way, the game would be very boring. Still watching with interest. I like your approach.

I always think that either horses are going to win, or drop off out of the places,
If you can get the best odds you can about two horses in the race then the extra SP will out-do any place returns I feel. I did read a study a long time ago into this but cannot remember who by. ( I seem to recall Clive Holt touching upon it.......not sure ).
Well, think of it this way then.
You're dutching all the other runners in the race to win!!
The traditional place part of an each way bet with bookmakers, I believe, is such poor value at mostly 1/5 the odds that it doesn't warrant being bet that way. I always think that either horses are going to win, or drop off out of the places, to enhance race future odds.
