Cup day preview posted

Update 11.38 a.m. No further bets.

Good morning,

The race that stops a nation has arrived! I’m fairly keen on one in the Melbourne Cup here along with two Quality bets , but from a serious betting point of view, you wouldn’t even consider betting in the race with so many different formlines and the 3200m being an unknown for so many. For newer subscribers, the races you should concentrate your serious betting on are races I rate with  ‘Good Confidence’  3/5, 4/5 or 5/5 which is indicated in most races I preview. The Quality bets, which have made consistently very good profits, are based on those selections when they are at value prices. For example, Exceedance RP ( Rated Price)  $1.70 and available around $4,  and Kolding RP $3 and was available between $5 and $7 from Saturday were two horses we made very good money off in the weekend. Qiji Dancer at Pukekohe on Saturday, was rated $2.40 and was only paying $2.50 before the start, so was no value, but was positively ridden by Matt Cameron and won easily. She rated $2.40 because of her draw, where she was likely to get back, and lack of pace in the race. So we are going to have selections rated with ‘Good Confidence’ that win but are no value. But believe me, I was almost sent broke trying to back favourites in my early twenties but were just too short. That’s when I realised that the way to make money off racing is to hunt down the value runners and the only way you could do that was to try and evaluate it’s true odds of winning and express that as a Rated Price. But if you just want to spend a weekly affordable amount on punting, then I provide selections for other races on most North Island meetings.
