Very odd shaped balls.

My focus on laying very short priced favourites ( 1.05 and lower) paid off in the Samoa v Russia match. Samoa’s odds of 1.03 rose to 1.4 in-play allowing a nice cash out. 2 Samoans yellow carded in the first half helped the odds!

Russia did take the lead v Japan but were eventually pegged back.

Fiji led at halftime v Australia but Australia eventually won with ease.

I need a few more Samoa yellow card type opportunities in order to really cash in.

An angle for a Friday…

It seems that Dundalk’s Friday racing program has re-commenced tonight.

Here’s an interesting angle for you.

Did you know that , in the last 10 years, backing top weights in handicaps when they are favourites has made a 66 point profit.

13 and 14 runner races have seen the largest proportion of the profit.

I thought I would look at all all-weather courses, including Dundalk, backing 1st favourites when they are top weighted and see a 109 points profit to Betfair SP.

Focus predominantly on Dundalk, Wolverhampton, Kempton and Chelmsford as the 3 big profit makers to Betfair SP.

13 and 14 runner races stand out again with a total 172 points profit backing 1st favourites when top weights.

Horses draws in stalls 10-5-11 -3 have made a total 230 points profit.

Something to work with here?

Backing favourites when they are top weights  in handicaps on the all-weather. Watch out for possible qualifiers this evening at Dundalk. The top weight is easily distinguished -they are usually the first horse in the race card. Look for the WGT column.
