When I put together tutorials for SPB System Builder users on how to create profitable systems I try to stress how important it is to be specific.
Here is an example…
Although people to tend to bunch “All Weather” (AW) courses together, there are differences.
Southwell uses Fibresand where the other courses use Polytrack.
But even though most use polytrack this can still lead to different characteristics and speed.
The thing I really like about AW is that even if you just pick just one course to concentrate on…there will be plenty of meetings throughout the year to test your theories against.
There is one AW course people tend to forget and that is Dundalk in Ireland.
As Irelands only all weather course, it does tend to have at least one meeting per week, which makes it ideal to create a system for.
But being specific is not just about the course.
Form elements also play a role and the more you drill down and look at the runners the more likely you are to find a profitable system.
The Dundalk AW system is good example of this.
This system takes into account horse gender, Headgear, Age, claiming and the how well the horse performed last time out.
It also looks at the horse’s performance at the course and at the distance.
Dundalk mostly runs Wednesday, Thursday or Friday and because that is where most of the results come from, we stick with those days.
The problem with a horse racing betting system like this…is…that it will probably produce very few selections on a weekly basis.
Sometimes as little as one selection a week.
This puts many people off, which is a shame because when you are more specific about your runners the better chance you have of actually making profit.
The Dundalk AW system has had winners as high as 87.06.
Of course it doesn’t win every time but generally when it does it normally wins high.
So if you are NOT going to create your own system using a tool like the SPB System Builder…
…Then it may be worth looking at a system like the Dundalk AW system.
Thank you as always for reading I really do appreciate it.
