Have you ever seen these kind of statements before “We all know there is no such thing as a certainty in racing, but Thursday’s Multi-bet is about as close as you get.

Why say there is no such thing as a certainty and then give out selections as a certainty.  And combining odds on tips as a Multi in my opinion is just giving you a bigger chance of losing.

What were these non certainties today and what were the comments?

Two outstanding, short-priced favourites look unbeatable in their respective races at Wyong and Seymour, and although their odds are prohibitive, combine them in a Multi-bet and hopefully get a decent return.
WYONG Race 3 – BJ HOWES METALAND LISAROW (C2) – 1100m – 2:50pm
The Joe Pride-trained CWMBRAN looks untouchable here.
After two impressive 3rd placings in tougher races than this, the speedy son of More Than Ready drops in grade and distance and is ready to peak.  He won at this track when dropping back in distance at his third run last campaign and from barrier 1 in a six-horse field it’s hard to see him losing.

An odds on favourite in a small field, losing? Who ever heard of such a thing?  An Odds On Favourite in a small field is almost a guaranteed loss.  The race won’t be run truly and there will be little cover.

Finished 2nd paying $1.30 the Place.  Winners win … losers lose.

SEYMOUR Race 7 – TOUR OF VICTORIA (BM64) – 1109m – 4:18pm
Team Hawkes will let rip with ONEROUS, and he simply looks classes above his opposition. 
Won easily by over 2 lengths paying $1.60 and $1.20.  But because they were combined as a multi, the whole bet was lost.  At least betting them individually you lost 1 Unit on the first and gained .6 of a unit in the second.  Loss for the day was 0.40 of a unit, whereas the multi loss was 1 Unit.  So what? you say.  If your Units were a $100, you lost $100 on the multi and $40 on the individuals.  If you were betting in $1,000 units … loss of $1,000 or $400?

If it looks too good to be true, then it is probably is?  Don’t be swayed by over optimistic tipsters … they make their living from tipping, not from punting.

Rant Over! 🙂
