These figures are always interesting and pertinent and note 4yo+ favourites in non-handicaps win at a strike rate of 47%. John Gosden maintains a 27% plus strike rate at the course and Frankie Dettori scored at 32% last year.

Connor Beasley was an unexpected name on our leader board for 2019 with figures showing 6-11 for 55% and a level stake profit of +50.87. One trainer to avoid is Richard Fahey, he trains too many horses to be truly effective and his 'have horse will run' figures are not conducive to profit from a win perspective. One imagines some professionals successfully laying his runners given his massive -167.62 return to level stakes.

Proven mathematical laws are the governing force of horse racing betting. Consequently every bet we place is conceived then predicated from statistical analysis protected by a math-based edge with perceived value attached. Our formula is simple because we are yet to be convinced that a complication of a system is proportional to profit. So what do we mean by a math-based edge? It means finding something with a solid mathematical core, something historically profitable and something that is unlikely to change or suffer fatigue going forward. Then, if we can filter negative influences from the original proposal and provide a sound rationale for doing so, we can claim that betting edge.


The absolute key to success in betting is the ability to identify value bet situations where the odds available are greater than the true chance of winning and then to have the discipline to methodically bet only when these situations arise. If this is done the laws of mathematics and probability dictate that in the long term, you will make a profit.
