Punters were faced with a string of wide open races to assess at Caulfield
on Saturday where cases could be made for most of the runners in most of the
fields. Despite this challenge statistics show that the majority of punters
placed a single win or each-way bet in these races, adhering to the unspoken
rule of only picking one horse in a race despite the heightened risk associated
with doing so.
A survey that we ran in 2013 revealed that only 16% of punters place bets on
more than one horse in a race and of those only 12% do it regularly. Punters
who indicated that they don't back multiple runners in a race or do it less
frequently sited lack of knowledge about staking plans as a key reason why they
stuck to betting on one horse.
We've written a few articles about staking
multiple bets in a race outlining several approaches for punters to consider
when developing their staking plans. For punters who find it all a bit complex,
their best alternative is to follow a trusted source who get's the combination of form analysis
and staking right more times than not.
Melbourne form expert Deane Lester highlighted how rewarding the combination
of good form analysis and effective stake planning can be last Saturday when
his Caulfield Guineas Day staking plan delivered his followers a massive 116%
profit on turnover from seven winners on the ten race program.
Confidence Driven Staking Plan
Lester's results at Caulfield demonstrate how confidence, an understanding
of the risk associated with a race and the price of the runners can be used
to arrive at a betting stake.
We've highlighted a few key points from his Caulfield Guineas Day staking plan
- Low stake in Race 1 for the 2-year-old stakes race
- Loaded up with 25 units and only one selection in Race 5 the Cape Grim which
won demonstrating a high confidence play.
- Took three selections in the Caulfield Guineas, finding the winner in a
very open race.
- Loaded up with 20 units in the Schillaci Stakes on Star Turn.
Punters who received Deane's
Saturday Form package and followed his staking plan finished the day with
149% profit on turnover with $100 win bet punters pocketing a cool $2,384 profit.
Race day information like this gives punters the ultimate insight into both
expert form analysis and smart punting tactics. It's the difference between
just backing winners, and finishing the day with more money in your betting
account than what you started with.
