How To Invent A 'System' And Make Money
Since the first two chariots raced around the Roman Colisuim, punters have been trying to invent a 'machanical system' to beat the bookies. The chariots have gone but the bookies are still here. Well how do you come up with a 'System' and make money.
Firstly, you have to 'research' past results for a year or three.
Secondly, make up a 'set of rules' that sound very racey. Something like:
'Delete the favourite if it's starting from barrier 9 or greater, providing the race is less than 1400m.'
It sounds a lot better than:
'Delete the favourite if a fat lady farts in the betting ring 5 minutes or less before the race is run.'
Both rules are of about the same value, but the first one sounds more racey.
Next, delete any rules that don't fit the 'winners'.
Have a rule like, Only operate on a Saturday. It too sounds a lot better than:
Only operate in a Cyclone. I could never understand why horses only like to win on a Saturday, but many systems have that rule so it must be good.
Now kick the system of in the month where the best result was had, if the system produced a stack of winners last May, then thats the month we kick off, it looks good on paper when you show the past results.
You then apply some form of 'double up' betting plan to the system, which with that good starting month will really kick the bank along.
Now refine the rules, that is throw out any that have stopped producing winners and introduce new ones that are now winning. You might have had a rule that went. Back the favourite, providing it is running within 14 days of its last start and won at its second last run, that rule went great in May and June but fell flat since July, but back the second favourite, providing it was placed at its last run and is racing within 21 days has took off over the last couple of months, so out with the old rule in with the new rule from July, thats how you refine the rules.
Oh! I did say you can make money from systems, How?
'SELL IT TO OTHERS
As a bookie once said "Show me a punter with a system, and at the end of the day I'll have his money, but he'll have his system."
