I have done a TON of reading while laid up after the hernia op and something i came across that stuck in my mind was this:See, 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.
In a race we are not actually looking for a winner.... its very very hard to find a winner. What we should be doing is finding the contenders of that race ... those that could win. By narrowing down the field you are able to pick a couple of contenders to back. That's when dutching would come in to cover those contenders.
One thing I do hate thought is when you get those bigger price horses coming in 2nd and whish you had the place!
Suppose the main thing is at the end of the month your bank balance is up Many ways to skin a cat .... but the end result should be no skin on the cat!
