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 Caulfield, Saturday, 5th. December, 2009.

Comments:
In a tough day for favourites there was just one winning favourite. In R1 Cinecitta had a break of 30 days and rose in distance from 1000 metres to 1200 metres. It finished fourth. In R5 Pins On Ice jumped in distance from 1000 metres to 1400 metres. It did a great job to finish second. While in R7 Timetable, which was unplaced at its previous start, had 28 days between runs, as it rose in distance from 1800 metres to 2000 metres. It ran third. Two horses resumed as favourites after lengthy spells. In R4 Chameleon after a spell of 154 days was unplaced over 1200 metres. While in R6 Time Matters after a spell of 161 days was unplaced over 1100 metres.

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.
