pro-longed purple patch ? not many of those
The front of the market has well proven long term accuracy and this is where the majority of punters play but we know that the majority will not make any long term profit. There is a perverse contradiction in this.?In my personal setup I can test dutching n horses in a race according xyz criteria, but just doing a blanket dutch of the top 5 in the market in every race where there's >=6 runners showed on average just how on fiendishly accurate the market is on the exchange.
Basically just further showed how to 'beat the market'/'obtain value' one needs an edge/info other people don't have in a chosen subset of races over the year.
on the exchange it appears that the further away from the top of the market you get the more out of sync it can be with bookies in general i.e. possibly indicates a lot more potential unknowns for those runners and ergo possibilities for some to derive/obtain info for them that is not generally known.The front of the market has well proven long term accuracy and this is where the majority of punters play but we know that the majority will not make any long term profit.
