The only race cards that I have found that can be pasted into Excel is from HRB. My sheet has got rather complicated over the last few months but I seem to be just treading water. I have been looking into ways of just backing the top rated if it is at least 12 points clear.

The only one of your races that I have looked at today is 4:50 Chester.

Probably risking failure again but here's 2 races for tomorrow

Catterick 3.45
Medahim
Raselasad
Hell's babe won 9/2

Ballinrobe 7.10
Lever du soliel
Smiling Eliza
Humaniste 2nd 11/2

When I give the spreadsheet, after sufficient testing but an 80ish% strike rate and about a 25% roi at SP means I'd be happy to if it continues, to the old boy I'll also post it here. I doubt there will be much interest but I think it worthy if things continue.

Good luck tomorrow

Well done @hedgehog

I had Humaniste, who was a close second, so unlucky there!

Thanks @giuseppe_esq, close but not good enough. Ireland seems particularly hard to get a winner from. Saturday Mrs lovett fell at the last when in the lead and being pressed, would have got me a profit on the day. Hard luck but it happens though it does seem to happen more across the water.

Thanks again and good luck tomorrow

As long as you are getting more winning days than losing days, then that's a start i suppose. It's great when we have a big winning day, though disheartening when we have a big losing day.

The key thing is that you are finding winners!

Good luck!!

If this continues this way I may add it to what I normally do. I use a number of ratings but this is looking like it will have a better strike rate than a couple of them and it's making a nice profit.

Good luck tomorrow

I've had 6 losing days on the trot though got at least one winner a day which was ended yesterday with an 8.5pt profit on the day. I'm now in 2 minds about giving this to the old boy as a 15pt drawdown would need nerves of steel given he's thinking of betting a tenner a point. He'd definitely need a healthy bank to weather that kind of losing run and I'm not sure he has the resources to put that kind of money into a betting bank. I know I don't. Thankfully back into double figures for overall profit.

Sorry about your bet @Ferdy, another day, another race. You'll get it back

6pts loss today.

I've given the spreadsheet to the old boy with a significant wealth warning and advice to put together a good betting bank. Still just in double figures profit after about 50 races from this very simple idea.

I'll try to post the spreadsheet sometime this weekend if anybody is interested?

Good luck tomorrow

Will be interested to see it, I like tinkering with Excel.
