When I was a teenager I came up with a very simple betting system. I took a copy of the Racing Post and worked out which horse had been selected as a 'nap' by the most number of newspaper tipsters. My logic was that the newspaper correspondents were the real experts because they studied the form everyday and had all the best contacts. Therefore if anyone was going to get inside information then it would them. Alas I soon worked out that these so called experts were not particularly good tipsters and few of them managed to make a profit from backing horses. My early faith in newspaper tipsters took a further knock when I later heard a rumour that some racing correspondents tip or write up a horse in a positive way to give a free advert to a trainer to whom they owe a favour. Whether this is true or not I don't know but I've been suspicious of newspaper tipsters ever since. However, I have to say that I haven't really properly analysed whether my prejudice is justified or not.

A good way to become a successful punter is to play a portfolio of systems. This has worked for me down the years, and I know that this is an approach favoured by a number of other serious players. The concept is very simple but has a good statistical rationale behind it, and adopts the same approach as any successful investor in the financial markets.
The strategy is basically to develop a whole range of betting systems and then to play them at the same time. Provided a system has been well researched and has proved to be successful in a trial period then it should be added to one’s system portfolio.
In playing a whole range of different systems the punter effectively spreads his or her risk, provided that the portfolio is big enough, and diverse enough in its range of strategies.
The difficulty is coming up with enough profitable systems. The 'Money Horse' system is one that you might want to add to your systems portfolio.

The Champion Chase is one of the most eagerly anticipated races of the Cheltenham festival. It has a great history and there have been some great winners of the race. A number of horses have notched up a sequence in this race, but the winner seems to identified by a narrow range of form factors. Based on our analysis of the statistical trends we have created a system for the big race.

The Champion Hurdle can often be a tricky race for punters. It has thrown up its fair share of shock results. However, there would appear to be a set of ten factors that can help to identify the key contenders. When these statistical factors are combined into a simple point scoring system it has been possible to make a profit from the race by backing the top-rated selection each-way.
