I think its just finding what works best for you. I don’t really have time to go through all the different reports but seem to have a found a simple angle.
A quick ten minutes going through the shortlist, i back horses that appear both on the win and place shortlist. If there is two or more horses in the same race i leave it alone unless it is a competitive handicap.
I have been doing this for around a month with some good success. If i get the chance i will post the results.
