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 on Saturday, 7th. August, 2010 at the Flemington horse racing track.

Comments:
Punters betting favourites had a winning meeting with three winning favourites. Of these winning favourites, Censor won its previous race 28 days earlier and Aurie's Star finished second 28 days earlier. They both won at the same distance as their previous race. The third winning favourite Moudre in R7 was first up over 1410 metres after a spell of 84 days. The other first up favourite of the meeting, Perturbo in R3, after a spell of 97 days, ran unplaced. In R1 Trisara jumped up unsuccessfully in distance from 1100 metres 15 days earlier to 1410 metres while in R8 Rubinacci after 17 days unsuccessfully dropped sharply back in distance from 2400 metres to 1800 metres. In R5, after being unplaced at its previous start, Pinnacles was sent out a short, well backed $3.20 favourite and did not 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.
