Split Places Staking Plan
The Split Places Staking Plan works on the assumption you will
have no more than five bets in an afternoon - all for a place.
For bet 1 put your afternoon’s
“bank” on your first selection a place (whatever your
If it runs a place, remove your
stake from play and split any profits equally on the next four
selections for a place.
For example, if you are prepared
to lose $50 for the afternoon, put it all on your first selection
of your best five. Say it runs a place and pays $2.00. Great.
Withdraw the $50 from play and split the $50 profit in to four
other place bets of $12.50 each.
The worst you can do now is break
square if none of the others run a place.
If any of the others do run a place,
go through the same exercise. Say the second one runs second and
pays $1.50. The return would be $18.75. Remove the $12.50 (that
then becomes the minimum you can win for the day) and split the
$6.25 equally over the last three again. (Each would now have
$18.75 on them to run a place.)
Sure - you get the idea.
And if the first one loses? Big
deal. The day’s activities are finished and you can now
do something far more useful in the garden perhaps.
