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 horse racing favourites' results from the meeting held at Flemington horse racing track on Saturday, 27th. June, 2009.

Comments:
In R1 Toluka didn't appreciate the 32 days between races and finished 10th. In R8 yet another plunge on a horse first up after a long spell of 100 days or more went astray. Grand Duels was heavily backed from $4.00 to $3.20 but was comfortable held in 3rd. In R4 the favourite At The Crease unsuccessfully jumped in distance from 1400 metres to 1720 metres. In addition it finished 4th. at its previous start. However this week two favourites won after being unplaced at their previous starts - in R3 and R7.

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.
