The strategy that we are going to adopt with this method is to choose handicap races, both flat and national hunt chases are acceptable – but not national hunt hurdles. Each qualifying races must be limited to between 4 to 8 runners.
If you are operating from a bookmakers simply watch the boards for the latest prices.
If you are operating from home then you could use the betting shows on your TV for your selected race or use online bookmakers odds.
Once you have the latest prices on show then our selection will be the outsider.
You will be pleased that there is a logical reason behind this, which I will explain.
In small fields no matter what the quality of the field is no matter whether it is a flat or jumps race you will often get a falsely run race with the end result being a 3 and a half mile chase turning into a five furlong sprint and this means you can get some very big priced horses winning.
This system works just as well on the flat and national hunt apart from hurdle races. Very few handicap hurdle races have less than 9 runners. Those that are less than 9 runners usually turn out to be 4 or 5 runner races and the prices are very low. There is rarely a true outsider and these races are best left alone.
When there are two horses tied as outsiders then back them both as the bigger odds will permit this.
That is all there is to it. I have used this system for over 5 years now and it still is consistent in producing me with big priced winners.
