The trials are starting to get a bit more interesting now, dear reader, with five days of evidence behind us and a sixth day to look forward to.
Fancy Fillies, a laying system, has provided us with interest on a daily basis to date, and yesterday was no different. The selection, Miss Sophisticat, was sent off a warm order at 7/4, but could only manage 3rd and beaten three lengths.
The running total on Fancy Fillies can be seen here. In short, five lays, four beaten (and, therefore, we win), profit to 5% of starting bank: £121.06. A pretty good start and, as I've already said, my advice is to hold fire before taking action with this, and see what happens in the longer term.
There don't appear to be any fillies to fit the criteria today, so we'll have a complete 'sit out' day.
If you're desperate to get a copy, you can go here. But I'd wait and see.
The Legacy System has surprised me to date. It is a backing system for certain horses at certain courses, and under certain conditions.
I was expecting a lot of runners and, to be brutally honest, a fairly poor system performance. Of course, these expectations may still come to pass before the trial is out.
But, at this early stage, I can only report the facts. Five days, two runners, two winners. The winners were pretty skinny at 2/1 and 11/8, but winners are winners.
There are no Legacy System runners today.
Again, my advice is hang fire until the end of the trial before determining whether this might be for you. I still have some reservations about this system.
Incidentally, I'd previously indicated that I would only be tracking these two systems until this Friday, 17th October. However, I've had a number of requests for longer trial periods, which makes sense to me also (especially with either selective systems like Legacy, or with any kind of lay system).
So I'll now be trialling until Thursday 30th October, which will give us a full three weeks and a bit of data to go on.
Yesterday was an interesting day's racing, with Go Go Green providing a nice 6/1 winner for the blog at Bath. I must admit, I was expecting odds around double these, so clearly I wasn't the only one who thought he might run well.
Over at Goodwood, it was tougher, with Capucci making the frame at 8/1; Mountain Pride finishing a respectable 5th at 12/1; and Campbelltown Trader still running!
In the Velka Pardubicka, Sixteen did indeed win, but only after the stewards found the original first past the post guilty of taking the wrong course. Sixteen returned 2/1. And here he is (#10), courtesy of Racing Post.
A typical Monday today, with nothing to even remotely tempt me into a wager.
If you must open the wallet today, can I again suggest you do so to open a betdaq account. They are beginning to make some sort of realistic challenge to betfair's monopoly and - if they can actually do that - it will make a big difference to all of us punters, with the additional choice.
