Instead of just number of runners, I wondered about position on racecard of outsider winners in the 14/1 to 33/1 range. First thing I spotted was a shortage of bottom weight winners. So far, as well as the first 100 turf flat handicap races 2015 (above) I’ve compiled the results for the the remainder of April (11 winners from 18th – 30th) and am about halfway through May with seven winners so far. The majority (full detailed chart to come when I’m up to date) are somewhere in the middle. Currently I’d suggest not backing top two and bottom weights. Any contender in any of those three positions should be discounted – less bets more profit, right?
