All Weather Results

All weather meetings account for a large chunk of daily UK and Irish horse racing and we’re very pleased to report an upturn in results for the top-rated selections at those tracks over the last 6 weeks.

Since the beginning of March 2013 there have been 310 rated all weather races - 97 of those have been won by the top-rated Cherry Pick (31%). Backing every top-rated selection to win over that period would have returned a level stakes profit of 65.13 points after commission (based on Betfair starting prices).

187 top-rated selections have placed in that time (60%) and 186 races have been won by first, second or third top-rated selections (60%). Backing every top-rated selection to place would have returned a level stakes profit of 36.70 points after commission (based on Betfair place SPs). Dutching the top 3 rated in every race would have returned a level stakes profit of 28.29 points after commission (based on Betfair SPs).

That makes a total level stakes profit of 130.12 points after commission for the 3 approaches, an average return of 3.17 points per day and a total return on investment of 14%.

All Weather Returns
Fingers crossed the trend will continue at Lingfield, Wolverhampton & Dundalk today!

Cheltenham Report

Overall there were 7 top-rated winners from 20 rated races at Cheltenham this year – a 35% win rate. Backing every top-rated selection to win would have returned a level stakes profit of 12.61 points after commission (based on Betfair SPs) – a cracking result.

The win rate jumps up to 37% (10 winners out of 27 races), and the returns up to 16.17 points if you include backing the top-rated selections in races featuring unrated horses. Please note: Cherry Picks ratings for EVERY UK & Irish race can be accessed from the daily racecard download on JustStartHere (see the “REALCPRATING” column).

Well done to Charles from London who placed an £8 tricast bet on the top 3 rated Cherry Picks selections in the Gold Cup and won £304. How did you get on at Cheltenham this year?

Backing Big Early Horse Racing Steamers To Place

Wednesday 30th January 2013

There have been 7 top-rated winners over the last 2 days:

Prince James in the 17:00 at Wolverhampton yesterday (BSP of 7.02)
Irene Kennet in the 14:50 at Kempton on Monday (BSP of 6.60)
Compton Rainbow in the 16:50 at Kempton on Monday (BSP of 3.96)

Hab Reeth in the 13:40 at Wolverhampton on Monday (BSP of 2.69)

11
 top-rated selections have placed and 4 races have been won by second or third top-rated selections.

Backing Big Early Horse Racing Steamers To Place

Not everyone is able to monitor the racing right up until 1 minute before the off for every race. With this in mind, we spent some time investigating the earlier price movements on JustStartHere to see if there were any profitable betting angles to be found.

One pattern jumped out straight away – the biggest stand out 60 minute steamers in 3 out of the opening 4 races on Monday went on to place with big Betfair place odds. By “stand out” we mean green or blue steamers – i.e. horses that have recorded Mov values in excess of +2.5 (green) or +5(blue). The Mov60 values for the biggest “stand out” steamers in the 3 races mentioned are outlined in red on the screenshot below:

Early SteamersClick on image above to enlarge

Using 11am as the morning comparison time on JustStartHere, backing only the biggest green or blue Mov60 steamer in each race to place over the last 2 days would have returned a profit of 43.32 points after commission (based on Betfair place SPs). The full results are listed below:

Suspicious Betting Activity – Horse Racing Outsiders

Following on from our observations last Wednesday, another couple of outsiders attracted late money yesterday only to drift back out again just before the off.

The betting exchange odds for Edgware Road in the 17:10 at Wolverhampton came in from 26 to 18.5 between 5 and 3 minutes before post time (see movement value outlined in red on the screenshot below), only to then drift back our again to 25 at 1 minute before the off. This caused it to record a noticeably high negative value of -3.51 on JustStartHere. Always look out for suspicious late betting activity like this – the horse went on to be beaten by a neck (Betfair SP of 29, place SP of 5.92):

Earlier on, the betting exchange odds for Even Stevens steamed in from 48 to 30 between 15 minutes and 3 minutes before the start of the 13:50 at Lingfield, only to then drift out again (see screenshot below). It recorded the highest negative 321 rating in the race on JustStartHere and went on to be beaten by half a length (Betfair place SP of 7.2).

Unusual Betting PatternsClick on image above to enlarge

Always ask yourself this when monitoring the prices just before post time – if a horse has recorded a high negative 321 value, is it part of a general drifting pattern or is it because lots of late money went on it prior to 3 minutes before the off to make the drift appear artificially large? If it’s the latter, take note!

Top-Rated Cherry Picks Day Of The Week Analysis

Many of you have written in recently asking how the top-rated selections fare on the different days of the week. Seeing as how the weather has played havoc with the racing schedule over the last few days, we thought we’d carry out some analysis. Here are the findings:

Day No. Days No. Winning Days Points Returns
Saturday 93 47 (51%) +182.16
Wednesday 82 37 (40%) +78.41
Tuesday 93 44 (48%) +42.17
Friday 92 39 (42%) +1.94
Sunday 92 36 (44%) -9.75

Thursday 93 39 (42%) -151.41
Totals: 637 279 (44%) +85.89 
Day Of The Week Analysis

Unsurprisingly then, Saturday comes out on top. The quality of horse racing is generally better on Saturdays and this makes predicting winners a whole lot easier. Thursday is the day to avoid it seems!

More Big Late Steamers With Big Prices Yesterday

The price of Un Ace more than halved between 3 minutes and 1 minute before the start of the 13:00 at Lingfield. This was signalled by a huge positive 321 value of +5.45 being recorded on JustStartHere (highlighted in red on the screenshot below). Money certainly talked in this instance as the horse went on to win the race with a Betfair starting price of 41.98 (place SP of 10):

There was another big late steamer with big odds later on as the price for Dangan Daylight came in from 42 to 30 during the last 3 minutes before the start of the 14:40 at Thurles (high positive JustStartHere 321 value highlighted in red on the screenshot below). The horse went on to be beaten by half a length (Betfair place SP of 4.29):

More Unusual Betting Patterns To Look Out For

Another horse caught my eye on JustStartHere yesterday – one that may surprise you. Miserere Mei recorded a normally off-putting high negative 321 value of -3.33 but that was AFTER the price had steamed in from 25 to 15 between 15 minutes and 3 minutes before post time (the notable price movements are highlighted in red on the screenshot below):

Unusual Betting Patterns
Click on image above to enlarge

The horse drifted massively during the last 3 minutes before the off but this has to be weighed up against the fact that it was gambled on very heavily during the previous 12 minutes or so. Either way, you should always take note when a a big outsider attracts such a flurry of betting activity.

As it turned out, Miserere Mei (Betfair SP of 21.37) came third in a race where the top 3 were separated by 2 necks. It was a close run thing but the Betfair SP place odds were still a generous 5.17. When it comes to backing outsiders in these scenarios, I would always recommend a conservative approach – i.e. backing them each way or to place.

How Do We Personally Use The Price Movement Data Provided By JustStartHere?

I had a bit of time to kill on my lunchbreak today so I logged into my JustStartHere account and had a quick look at the steamers and drifters in the upcoming race (the 13:30 at Lingfield). I noticed that 2 outsiders (Polarity & Big Kahuna) had attracted a bit of money during the last 3 minutes before post time. In fact, they recorded the 2 highest positive 321 values in the race on  JustStartHere (highlighted in red on the screenshot below):

Horse Racing SteamersClick on image above to enlarge

Seeing that the race had 8 runners (meaning 3 place positions), and that the odds were good, I decided to put £2 on each of them to place:

Betfair ScreenClick on image above to enlarge

Polarity duly came third with an enormous Betfair place SP of 65.26 and netted me a profit of £120.19 after commission:

Betfair WinningsClick on image above to enlarge

We receive a lot of emails asking how we personally use the JustStartHere information and this demonstrates our approach perfectly. It is important to be selective and look for value. In this race the 3 favourites were odds-on to place yet the 2 biggest positive 321 ratings on JSH were recorded by 2 outsiders. All it takes is for one of the top 3 in the betting to run a bad race and for one of the 2 outsiders that have been backed during the last 3 minutes before post time to show why they have attracted late money. As it turned out, this is exactly what transpired and a £4 outlay returned a profit of £120.

You don’t have to try and force an angle in every single race – just pick the ones where you think there’s value to be had. Nor do you have to sit and follow a system all day, every day to make use of the data. At just £6 per month the service still provides value for money if you only use it in the evenings, at weekends or whenever you get the chance to follow the racing. Indeed, the profit I made in this race covers a 20 month subscription to the service.
