Nice to see novices picking winners, I used to study the racing post trying to pick winners with not much luck. I found GGs gold and have not stopped picking winners, I had winners at all rates from 4-1 up to 25-1, I still get my losers. I usually have 2-3 bets per day, some days more but like to home in on 2-3 bets max. I now bet full time.
If you put the homework in you will get the rewards, I always bet the night before on 365. Very rarely do my selections drift, some times odds have halved by mid morning.
Keep punting, the more you find different angles the more profitable it will be.
