Staking To Ratings Staking Plan

If you have gone to all the trouble of rating your race and then PRICING your race, what sort of staking approach do you use?

A lot of punters who take this stuff very seriously always bet to GROSS + return $100 (plus any catch up losses) at the price THEY HAVE DETERMINED the horse should be, completely disregarding its real price.

For example, if you rate the horse a $2.00 chance (1/1) your bet is $50 to win (and therefore return [almost]) $100. If it was a $5 chance and you were $20 in the hole, you are seeking a gross return of $120 - you would then have $24 on it to gross return $120.... and so on.

Now of course if the horse is priced in real money with the betting exchange or totalisator or bookmaker at greater than your rated price, you make substantially more than your stated aim and then rule off the transaction column and start again at aiming for 100.

If it is less in its real price and wins, you simply have another amount of catch up to do on the next bet -shortfall gets carried over.

A fewpunters I have the acquaintance of, do this week after week after week and I never seem to hear them complaining.

Here's a table showing the unit invest needed under different examples: (I've left $13 to $16 blank so when you print this out you can fill them in and get the hang of the calculations.)

No staking plan can make up for plainly poor selections.

Invariably, people who use this method base their bank on a factor of at least 20 (races) -so if your maximum invest here is 68 units (and remember it could grow to much more) then your starting bank would be 68 multiplied by 20 equals $1360.
It goes without saying that the old adage of "odds on, look on" applies. In other words, if less than $2.00 to win, just watch and enjoy!

This is a dangerous approach - but also an exciting one and can be very rewarding, especially if your ratings are right and the "mob's" are wrong.
