I have re-branded the title of these posts – I think ‘members report’ sounds better, and you can think of yourselves as a RacingtoProfit member if you wish.
I want these daily posts to be a hub of relevant information for you to use as you please. A kind of portfolio. Firstly this will include micro angles/systems. The monthly angles will continue (am aware I need to write a results update post for August/Sept) as well as a few that will tick along in the background. I have 10 trainers to follow in handicap hurdles and chases that I will share next week once I go back through them and double check everything. I also want to create a list of ‘profile’ horses to follow (NH/AW for now) that will be posted up when getting their conditions. That is on the to do list before the month is out. There is the Shortlist. A more focusses list of horses that look good value based on the stats as a way in, combined with some form analysis. Then there is the tipping, which will accelerate from November onwards (a bit too much guesswork this month- will mainly focus on 3m+ handicap chases). I am not going to put pressure on myself and try and find a tip everyday, although that is the aim. Of course there are also the big race previews and trends etc.
In an ideal world every part of the portfolio (systems/profiles/shortlist/tips) should be profitable to 1 point stakes long term. That should give you confidence in how you use them, and which bits you dip in and out of etc. I need to be careful as all together I don’t want to be having loads of bets per day etc.
So, it is a bit of a work in progress and I am always happy to take suggestions for improvement – these posts are meant to focus my mind,make us all more profitable while adding some value that may help us all enjoy this great game some more. I won’t set a profit target but if all in we could be hitting 100+ points per year that would be a decent start.
There are no horses I could find of interest today. Yesterday’s were a bit poor and the shortlist is now +4 points for October to date. (1 point level stakes).
I am off to Newmarket today for the day out and it will be a quiet one on the betting front. 2yo/3yo patters races with many unraced/unexposed horses isn’t my idea of betting heaven. But, the ticket was free and I may well see the next Guinneas/Derby winner. (if this is more your bag, please do point me in the right direction!)
