Horse Racing Favourites

Do horse racing favourites win when the money is on? Do favourites lose when they ease in the betting? Are favourites more successful over longer distances than 1000 metres? Do favourites lose on wet tracks? Do favourites lose when first up from a spell? Are horse racing favourites worse bets in large fields?

These questions and more will be answered on a regular basis as we update the results of horse racing favourites on a regular basis.

We'll concentrate on Saturday races in Melbourne. These results over the long term should be comparable with results of Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide races on Saturdays.

Here are the results from the horse racing meeting held at Moonee Valley horse racing track on Saturday, 29th. May, 2010.

Comments:
It was a good day for favourites punters with four winners from the eight favourites. Two of the four winning favourites - Black And Bent and Altitude - were last start winners, one winning favourite, Beyond Pardon, finished second at its previous start while in R2 the other winning favouite Our Baby Bonus won at the short odds of $1.75 after a spell of 127 days. In R5 and R7 both favourites, Bird Of Fire and Belscenica dropped back 200 metres in distance. Neither won. However in R4 Black And Bent jumped up in distance 600 metres from 2400 metres to 3000 metres and won.

You Need Top Odds

It's unlikely you'll get a high enough strike rate backing short priced tote favourites and poor value tote horses to make up for big unders on the tote. Especially in Sydney and Melbourne metropolitan racing on Saturdays.

If you regularly get poor odds you increase your chances of losing money.

It's very unlikely you'll make a long term profit by consistently backing short priced tote favourites.
