• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Ten point profit per month

mick

Sire
retriever retriever Re your above i did not wish to post negative at the start of your new thread but my thoughts where that 10pts per month is a difficult ask and perhaps attempting to average same over the longer term would prove a more comfortable objective. ? Race dist my area is 5 - 10 fur and i do not use speed figs other than to check the time based going against the official version when looking at an animals past races.

I feel a case of each to there own because we have members who do good work via race times and ratings obtained from same. :)

Yes, I think a longer term perspective regarding the 10pts per month is going to be needed. I wanted to involve other sports but my time is limited to study the various fields. Finding a balance between staking and potential returns is the key here I think.
I think I will observe the good folks speed figures, that are made available here, whether pre-race or post-race, and see if I can add to my 'race visualisation' and learning, so to speak.

That's a nice surprise to get home to!!
Two things I did right today....one.....a winner.....and two.....left my ( personal ) bet to BFSP......I very nearly took a price this morning, on each, around half that....( BFSP 20.00 )

Captain Ryan - oldest boy in the race wins. That's not part of my selection method, btw.....just coincidence again.
Hard Solution ran 4th at 11/1.


Horse racing ( 5f - 5½f ).........-0.50, +9.31

Total for today......................+8.81
Running total........................+1.625

1.45 Musselburgh.........5f
Mansfield
Corton Lass
0.5pt on each BFSP

8.35 Lingfield...........5f
Lethal Blast
Spurofthemoment
0.5pt on each BFSP


When I looked at these races last night I felt I wanted to avoid both.

Mansfield has a chance and I am happy with that one.....just. Corton Lass, still a maiden after 34 runs could be a foolish pick but there is something about her C & D run race before last that make me feel this grey is capable of being in the mix of these. If she can only get her head down.

Lethal Blast, although I opposed last time, ran a blinder as most of you will know, and from Stall 1 will be probably be hard to peg back. Probably the fastest breaker from the gates I've seen in recent times. The only problem is the shortish price and my habit of wishing to lay such. Spurofthemoment looks the best of the rest.

I am going to try something for the remainder of the month.
I am going to take on all 5f races - disregarding the number of runners.

I have done some preliminary testing with a very basic selection process using the tools within HRB.
Hopefully I can establish a base for next months attempt at a 10 points profit.
I will draw a line under this month whether I finish up or down.

All races are 5f - 5½f.
Each selection will be 1pt at BFSP ( less 2% comm. )

I think today was one of those 'stupid' days with the results. Favourites winning at silly prices and my only winner was one of them.

Beverley abandoned. So from ten bets - 5 non-runners - 1 winner ( BFSP 1.55 ) - 4 losers.

Horse racing ( 5f - 5½f ).........-4.00, +0.54

14 point outlay today barring non-runners. Could be a total disaster!! Some bigger priced selections in the mix.....at least 5 >10/1.......hopefully one will oblige.
Incidentally, picks are listed by order of racecard numbers, not necessarily a preference.
I do realise that operating at this much higher level ( outlay ) that the bank, and the correct amount per point, will have to be ascertained.
