A lot of punters may just have two horses on any one day that
they wish to support.
Some may have 20.
So is there a better way to back just two horses a day or, indeed,
couple up pairs of horses for better potential returns?
The Two Horse Plan is designed for punters who bet in "couplets"
and it works very simply like this:
Your two horses A & B both carry a 4 unit win bet but bet
B is increased to 8 units IF horse A wins.
If horse A doesn't win, the bet on B remains as 4 units.
However there is also a 12 unit all up place bet on horses A
and B running as well.
If horse A wins the total outlay is therefore 24 units.
If horse A doesn't win, the total outlay is 20 units.
If horses A & B both run a place -even if short - you should
escape with a small profit.
Say they're both paying only $1.50 a place -12 on A returns
18 units then all up B returns 27 units so for 20 units outlay
the return is 35%.
If horse A wins but B just runs a place the outlay is 24 units
for the same 27 units return as in the example above, so the return
drops to 12 and a half per cent.
Worth more than a passing thought!
staking plan can make up for plainly poor selections.
