At the beginning of this years Royal Ascot Festival, Derek outlined a festival system that he uses. You can see all the details of this system in his post here.
If you’d been following this system in the first four days of the festival then you would have had a 44% strike rate and an 18% ROI. The selections I’ve found using this system are:
The profit has been 1.66 units to Betfair SP. Although that doesn’t sound like much, when you consider that it comes from just nine bets in very competitive racing that’s pretty good. And it’s better than most punters will have done over the last four days.
However, if you’d actually taken these runners as a shortlist and analysed them in further detail… you would have been able to easily remove at least two of the losing bets from your selections.
As it’s the last day of the festival, I thought that for today I would find the selections from this system for you. I recommend that you use them as a shortlist to look at further.
It has been pointed out to me that I have mistakenly included Always Smile and Dissolution shouldn’t have been qualifiers as they were both running in a handicap race.
That means the profit stood at +3.66 units and the ROI is 52%!
My apologies for this error in the results above.
On the Friday 19th there were another three selections:
Stravagante @ 3.75
Found @ 2.63
Aloft @ 3.5
Of these runners Aloft won generating a further +0.38 units profit and taking the totals to…
Strike Rate: 50%
