Four Horse Staking Plan
So you have gone to all the trouble to sort out your best four
for the afternoon -win or place -but how to stake them? Well assuming
you are not in to financial suicide and bet odds on, here's an
idea that may assist.
The object of the exercise is that if one of them wins you MAY
end up with a small profit (depending on prices), if two win the
profits better, three's a good day and four winners from four
Note well: For you to be able to
do this in advance, you would be betting on a Saturday or Wednesday
when fixed price betting is available well in advance of the race
start times so you can work it out.
So your day may be that you like one of them
at 2.50 and invest 20 units, two of them are fixed price at 4.00
so you invest 13 on each of them, and your roughie for the day
is fixed price at 8.00 so you put 7 on that. Your total invest
is 53 units. I'm sure you can do the maths from there.
On a day where just one winner is struck,
your loss is very marginal. Two winners is good and profit looks
okay.... etc., etc., etc. What this does is gives you your best
chance to have a really great day while at the same time minimising
your losses on a slack day to acceptable levels.
All of this is provided of course you can pick a winner or two
from four stabs. Pick no winners for the day and your loss will
always be around the 50 units.
Of course your total invest could be a more comfortable level
for you at 25 units so you would halve the numbers above. This
is best used for fixed price betting as explained above, but could
be used race to race if you have the patience to sit there all
day on say Betfair for a better result perhaps.
What it does definitely do is restrict your betting activity to
FOUR BETS a day.
