I thought I would look at the 10-year stats for October, November and December.
Class 6 and 7 runner races turned a 77 and 49 points profit for favourite backers.
Dundalk and Newcastle, at this time of year, lead the stats for favourite backers. 70 and 45 points to Betfair SP ( and note the distinction between Betfair SP and Industry SP).
13 runner races are standout in October, November, December at the all-weather venues. 122 points profit to Betfair SP for favourite backers.
I love to look at pace as it so consistently identifies the best profits. Leaders and Prominent favourites turned a combined 208 points profit
Combining the best of these stats, backing favourites at this time of year at Dundalk and Newcastle , in 13 runner races, turned a 68 point profit to Betfair SP and 42 point profit to Industry SP.
This combination made a 31 points profit to Betfair SP last year. Will it do the same this year?
