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 Chester Manifold Stakes Day horse racing meeting held at Flemington on Saturday, 16th. January, 2010.

Comments:
A profitable day for punters backing favourites ismall loss day for punters backing favourites with good winners in R2, R3 and R4. At their previous starts these horses finished first, second and fourth. In R8 the favourite, Golden Honey, finished eighth at here previous start and did not win. While in R7 Secret Flyer missed a place after resuming from a spell. Not uncommon.

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.
