Punt to Win
# "Don't take it too seriously - have fun with your method. Horse racing can throw up some odd results at times which defy explanation, so don't get too serious otherwise you'll start going mad when you have a bad week or two. There is nothing worse then spending countless hours working out your selections/method and have it fall in a heap on race day. I'd suggest don't spend any more than two hours doing selections each race day. If it takes longer, you're system needs to be improved.
# Review your method regularly - don't make drastic changes if you have one bad week though. But you should review results and see if any minor modifications need to be made.
# Banks - you can operate just the one bank and still have multiple bet types, just keep accurate records on your computer as to which bet types are performing best.
# Field size - depends on your approach. My system works best on fields on 9-16. However, if you're betting for a place or betting on horses above 10/1 then fields of 17-20 can be profitable as you will receive good divs. - the Falvelon example was a good place bet, but a poor win bet in a field like that. Don't accept under 10/1 in large fields if win betting, unless we are talking Sunline running against backmarkers. I also wouldn't accept place divs. below $2.50 in large fields."
