INTRODUCTIONThe Placepot is without doubt the best
value bet in gambling. Just a ?.00 bet can return dividends in excess of
several hundred pounds! To win the placepot you have to select a horse to be
placed in each of the first six races at a meeting. As well as being great
value it is an excellent "fun" bet as it gives you an interest in a large
number of races for just a small investment. Placepots are run by the Tote, but
most high street bookmakers will now accept placepot bets. Whether you bet most
days or just on Saturdays, a Placepot bet is a smart investment to make!
Obviously finding a horse to place in six consecutive races
is not easy. However this publication "Cracking The Placepot" with a new,
updated version is a real winner. It really works! Using it will help you to
win the Placepot dividends with great regularity, you are virtually guarantted
a win every week. Not all placepot are in the ?00+ region (although from time
to time returns can be in four figures!), but compared with other tyes of race
betting the "level-stakes" returns on a week to week basis are huge.
THE METHODFirstly, we must decide which meeting to use
each day. It is best to stick to just one meeting per day. If there is a choice
of meetings then it is usually best not to use the main meeting as this quite
often contains races with big, competitive fields, and it makes our job of
finding horses to place more difficult. Conversely, the lowest grade meeting of
the day, particularly in the flat season, also has its problems. The horses
here are often ridden by the poorest standard of jockeys which makes analysis
hard. So when presented with a choice of meetings pick the second biggest
meeting of the day to work on. If you are uncertain which one this is, then add
together the prize values of each race at each meeting. The one with the second
highest total will be the one to use.
Having selected our meeting, we now need to make our
To capture the Placepot we are going to use a Placepot perm.
This allows us to pick more than one horse in each race. Most bookmakers now
supply Placepot perm slips which make entering easier.
To win the pot we need to select a placed horse in each
race. Obviously if we had covered say, three horses in every race then our
chances are greatly improved. Unfortunately it's not that easy! The more horses
we cover in each race, the more costly our bet. To cover three in each of the
six races would need 729 bets, ie. 729 times our stake. Too much.
The perm we use in this plan uses 36 lines, at 25p unit
stake the bet costs just ?.00. It consists of a single selection in two of the
races, two selections in another two races, and three selections in the
remaining two races. 1x1x2x2x3x3=36 bets.
Now to make our selections for the perm. If you are an
experienced student of form you can add your own knowledge to the selection
process, but here we are going to base our selections on S.P. forecasts. Using
the morning betting forecasts is a very reliable selection method to use with
this plan. Here's what to do:
We now have all the elements for our perm. Don't be fooled
into thinking that because the selection method is quick and easy, it is
ineffective. If you use it daily you should scoop the Placepot at least once a
- Look at the s.p. forecasts for the six races concerned.
Look for the two races with the shortest priced favourites. These will be
(hopefully) the most reliable favourites of the day, and even if they don't
win, they should place. These act as our "single" entries in the perm.
- Select the two races with the biggest fields, they are
usually big handicap races, and are always the hardest to select winners in.
Take the first three horses in the betting forecast in each of these races,
they will be our "three" selections in the perm.
- Obviously in the remaining two races, we use the first
two in the betting forecast as our "two" selection elements in the perm.
One last note about which paper to use. I recommend using
one of the specialist racing papers as their S.P. forecasts tend to be more
accurate, but whichever you use, keep to the same one each day.
