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 Moonee Valley, Saturday, 12th. September, 2009.

Comments:
Punters backing favourites had yet another winning day, with a 40% winning strike rate. Three of the four winning favourites finished in the top three at their previous start which was no more than 21 days earlier.

In R6 the David Hayes trained favourite, Nicconi, won first up after a spell of 147 days. The favourites in R2, Quick Blush, resuming after 213 days and in R3, Bubble Below, resuming after 168 days, were not successful.

In R1 Alkhafif, which finished fourth in its previous race and in R9 Shocking, which finished sixth in its previous race, both failed to win.

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.
