Are you using Mark Litttlewoods Software to research your NN PicKS???These are neural network ratings for flat hcaps based on 8 years of data. Highest the best. I have put these on and will do for a couple of weeks . becuause its about time I put something on. Tony
Thanks Tony.No I have been using AI for thirty years , I use Neuroshell 2 which is very advanced pierce of software and does a lot of the hard work for you. Tony
I think even though Benter knew the model would work, once he realised that he needed the Tote Pool Betting to be fed into the model, he had the finances to have multiple tickets going into the exotic bets . That is where one would really have to have the nerve to believe in whatever model that you were using.An article you posted about Bill Benter is probably the best thing I've read on this forum to date Chesham
I hadn't heard of the fellow (or story) before that. It has swayed my betting approach towards forecasts and the like....an uphill challenge I have to admit though.
Some nice results in there T tony spencer for the top-rated.
Bentner won because of over generous rebates from Hong Kong jockey club, he was clever enough to realise he could break even or even lose and if he put in enough volume would get rich from rebates, rebates go away so do the opportunity, nobody can beat the tote with the huge takeouts unless they are getting handouts .This still goes on today I know people who have rebates but no where near as generous.I think even though Benter knew the model would work, once he realised that he needed the Tote Pool Betting to be fed into the model, he had the finances to have multiple tickets going into the exotic bets .

I found that with Premium Bonds if you have the Maximum amount you have a payout nearly every month of the year , (as long as your luck is average) , but I have not hit the Million pay out yet. I like to think that I am in the queue and as far as I know, no one has won the Million payout more than once. Just A question of waiting to get to the front of the queue then LOL. Nice thing about Bonds is that you don’t lose your stake And I look forward to checking just after the first of the month , to See how lucky that I have been.(Or not)
It was my grandad who got me started as he bought £2 worth for me, when they first came out In the fifties . In 1974 I bought a £50 Block and it was around 2007 when one from that Block paid out £50 , so the Old Bonds still stand as much chance as the newer purchased ones.
I have never really give much study to the Exotic Bets , apart from the Place Pot if I am at a race meeting.
Looking at the chart and the Chi Score the Hot Spot looks to be those top rated who are between 10 and 20 higher rated than the nextHow do you use the ratings and the results of how they have performed Tony? Be interested to hear your approach.....thank you, Steve
Yes thats correctThank you for posting this up Tony. Very interesting. Just taking today as a sample, (and if I understand it right) taking those 6 or more clear, then its a profit of almost 11 points at SP at 1pt level stakes. Be following to see how this develops.
