I would like to post a system that should make a steady profit over time.
1. Eight runner races only<br>2. Choose horse that is clear 3rd favourite in Daily Mirror betting forecast<br>3. Back each way
Selections for Saturday 24 April 04:
Ripon: 3.45 Senza Scrupoli 4.55 Exclusive Danielle<br>Haydock: 5.45 Make Us Flush 6.45 Free Wheelin <br>Market Rasen: 4.35 Mr Friday
Sunday 25 April 04:
Brighton 3.20 Meadaaf<br>Ludlow 3.10 Jericho III 4.20 TictacApril 24, 2004 at 18:34 #53144RichNFordMember

Best of luck with this Tessa!
As a matter of interest what do you do when non-runner(s) make the race only two places – especially if that means the selection’s odds crumble to make an each way bet untennable?

Nice winner Tessa @ 7/1
Don’t want to nitpcick but in 3-10 Jericho is 4th in forecastApril 25, 2004 at 19:03 #53152
Thanks nall and RichNFord for your comments.
If the runners are reduced, I still back the selection each way at 1/4 odds.<br>I picked Jericho III because there was a 1st favourite, a two joint seconds, then a clear third Jericho III.
Saturday had 2 losers and 3 placed at 9/2, 8/1 and 10/1.<br>Sunday had a 7/1 winner (Meadaaf) and 2 losers
Assuming Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£10 each way on each selection, there would have been 8 selections: outlay Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£160 returns Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£179 – profit Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£19 or 1.9 points.April 25, 2004 at 22:30 #53153darrellMember

Good luck with this Tessa.
Rich if you back the place on Betfair you will still get 3 places with a non runner, though I concede that the odds could be much reduced depending on the price of the withdrawal.April 26, 2004 at 12:34 #53157

Very nice start tessa. Do you and this system go back a long way together? Or did you just think " I know what I could try…………" quite recently?
Again congrats on your start and continued good luck.April 28, 2004 at 11:17 #53167RichNFordMember

Can anyone confirm if the Mirror forecast prices are always the same as in the RP? If so I should be able to backcheck this system to something like last July as I have all the RP cards with forecast prices on my PC.

They are not always the sameApril 28, 2004 at 19:57 #53171

Mmm, now I understand the clear 3rd fav rule, in as much as you may have jt 1st or 2nd favs; but what do you do when you have a clear 1st fav, a clear 2nd fav and jt 3rd favs?
