Below is a short extract from ebook:
I would like to tell you how I finally found the best way of betting on the horses, which you know this book is about from the title, "Place Market Gold". I have been betting on the horses for over 20 years on a daily basis, but since 2000 it's been of a professional nature since I left the day job. I can say I've tried every way there is. Before the Betting Exchanges came onto the scene I spent a lot of time in the bookmakers and I got to see the different ways punters placed bets on the horses. You'd get the ones who liked betting on Handicaps. This type of race is usually quite competitive because the Handicapper tries his best to weight them accordingly. When all the runners cross the winning line, he wants them to cross the line as one, spread across the track. The odds on the market leaders in this kind of race are usually big and therefore the punters who like to bet on this kind of race are usually the ones who like to put small sums of money down for a much larger return - you could say your average daily High Street bookmaker punter. We now have racing seven days a week. The majority of these races are Handicaps, and most of these races are contested by horses of very average talent. The punters who bet on this kind of race are not surprised at all when they lose their money. They'll just try to work out the next race and try to win the money back. I myself have never been interested in betting in Handicaps. I always use Stakes races. In this kind of race, the horses usually carry equal weights unless the horse has won in the same grade, in which case it carries a penalty (Extra Weight). So this type of race is much fairer. Usually the winner is easier to find and often comes from the top 3 or 4 market leaders. The odds on the market leaders are usually quite short. Therefore finding winners should be straightforward, shouldn't it? Well, sometimes when the better race courses are featured, there are good opportunities, but they don't come along often enough to pay the bills, unless of course you've got a really large betting bank. But how many of us really do? Every day there are Stakes races scattered among the Handicaps and other lower graded races. I've always used the everyday Stakes races to try to earn my wages. Yes, I do get a lot of winners, but I also get my fair share of losers too. These short priced favorites look obvious winners before the race but less than 40% win and you can have days where all the short priced favorites lose. Then you know what happens after a losing run. The mind starts to play games and you end up chasing losses. Yes you can also have this mindset if you are playing bingo or poker but there it won't be as dangerous. Suddenly the short priced favorites lose their appeal and that's just when they start winning again. The racing program is set out in such a way that, even though the favorite looks an obvious winner, there are so many factors to consider. - All horses improve at different rates. - Horses are tried at various distances, and sometimes the new distance doesn't suit the horse. - Different types of ground and surface suit certain horses better than others. - The horse might not be 100% at its best on the day you're betting. - The jockey can get blocked or ill judge a ride. There are these obvious factors and many more others that get the short priced horses beaten on a daily basis. Okay, think of this scenario. You're putting down good money on short priced favorites, and the return isn't going to be anything to shout about. Now if these favorites you back don't look like taking a hand at the finish of the race on a regular basis, how long do you think you will entertain the racing game with your hard earned? "Not long" is the answer. If after all that form study, your horses don't perform as you'd hoped, what is the point of studying the form? It would be better to play something like roulette or those horrible Fixed Odds Machines in the bookmakers' shops. British horse racing is funded by the punter. If punters become disillusioned and stop betting, then horse racing will end. That can't happen. The reason that punters who bet on the shorter priced horses that lose don't become disillusioned is simple. These horses very often look like they're going to go close to winning. Yes, you've got it - they might get caught on the line or just not quite get there and in the end are PLACED. Now since the Betting Exchanges have come about, they have revolutionized betting markets. You can now just bet on a horse being "placed" (that is coming in 1st, 2nd or 3rd - or 4th in some races). That's right. You couldn't make a bet on a horse in a bookmaker's shop to be just placed. You could bet "each way", but that meant actually making TWO bets. Half of your Stake was for the horse to win and the other half to place. Therefore if your horse didn't win but was placed, you would get a fifth of the odds multiplied by your place bet as your return, and lose your bet that the horse would win. Now if your horse wasn't at least 5/1 you would lose money. That's what you call a bookmaker's benefit. I'm going to show you exactly which races to target, how to find these particular horses that will be placed at reasonable odds, and how to get a strike rate of around 75% winners. These are just a few everyday factors that play a role when placing a bet, but typical punters don't really take them into account. If you are betting for a living, however, then you must. How can any horse be a certainty with all these variables and more? How can we eradicate these problems? Well this is what this book will teach you in an easy and fun way to understand.
