This was the first week with the new Ratings.
Overall we invested 32.75 units for a return of 29.08 Units and recording a loss of 3.67 Units. A lot of this loss can be attributed to the extraordinary number of 2nd places we got.
Analysing these bets shows that there were 16 Thoroughbred bets. We achieved 4 Winners , 5 seconds and a 3rd, which is a win Strike Rate of 25% and a Place Strike Rate of 68%. Thoroughbred betting lost 6.13 Units.
There were 7 Harness Bets for the week for 6 winners a Strike Rate of 86%. Harness Racing provided a profit of 3.58 Units, betting the suggested units.
As we move forward into next week, I have slightly modified the Thoroughbred algorithm, which I believe will give us less Thoroughbred bets, but at better prices. Harness Racing needs to be treated with caution, as my earlier records indicated a probable Strike Rate of around 78%. The high strike rate lends itself to various forms of exotic bets, but caution must be exercised as I believe the Strike Rate will drop back over the coming weeks.
Punters Clubs, returned around 75% of the money invested. I stuffed up one of the clubs, by putting an incorrect bet on. We just about broke even that day, but we should have won a fair bit on the day. I am hoping that the modified Thoroughbred algorithm will return the Clubs to profit.
I am still monitoring the other Ratings Service. They provided 9 bets for 1 Winner and four 2nds. They will come good, but I will just monitor them for the moment. If in future any selections are given from the old ratings, then I will identify them as such.
With Spring Racing I am looking for some very good Saturdays on The Punt.
The suggested Value Bet won, hope some of you were on it.
Value Bet – Unibet, Semi Radara to score a try.
The Canberra Raiders won in a thriller, but the League’s leading try scorer managed to bag a couple of tries, to take advantage of Unibet’s boosted odds of $2. Max bet of $20, returned an easy $40 profit. There were a lot of bets refunded on both codes (NRL and AFL). I will look at these closer next season to see where we can get some more Risk Free and Value bets.
