Today we’ve got a quick and simple way to find an amazingly large amount of winners. It involves dutching which means…
You’re going to have to do a bit of maths. But I promise it’s very simple J
When betting outside of handicaps, and focussing on the top three in the betting, we can expect to find a staggering 70% winners!
Sometimes it can even be a little bit more.
By applying a bit of research and using some clever staking we can expect to be finding plenty of winners.
Okay, so lets got on with how to find them!
The first step is to check the betting forecast on the Racing Post. These are are compiled by expert handicappers and can be very accurate.
We are looking for the first three horses predicted to be in the top three of the betting. This is done by checking the Betting Forecast.
You can see this in the example below:
I’ve highlighted the three horses that are forecast to be at the top of the betting.
We now need to head over to the market and check how the betting looks.
To do this you can use OddsChecker at www.oddschecker.com
As you can see from the image below, Zerfaal is a non-runner so we need to pick out the next best predicted horse, which is Dance Of Heroes.
In the image above I’ve circled the best prices available at the time of looking at the race.
Now we need to head over to a dutching calculator which you can find at:
Below you can see that I’ve entered the odds into the calculator in decimal form. You can change the display on OddsChecker to display the odds in decimals instead of fractions if you don’t want to work it out for yourself.
We then place the stake on each runner shown next to the selections in the calculator. This means that if one of these horses were to win, we would make a profit of £47.73. A 47% ROI isn’t bad!
The results for the race were:
Have a go yourself. Play around until you become comfortable with the method and always paper trade first.
The key is to select place your bets with the bookmakers offering the best odds on each selection.
Once your practiced at this then you can start to look at choosing races that are even more predictable for dutching. You can check out this post where Michael wrote a dutching strategy. It was written in 2010 but is as relevant today as it was then!
