Horse Racing Tips

Staking (and results keeping)

From the 13th May onward all bets will be recorded as the Fixed price advised at the time of publishing..

We list recommended stakes in Units so as to allow subscribers to tailor their betting outlay to suit their bank. Some may chose to bet $10 units, some $50 units, and so on.

For those who would prefer a more conservative approach, given the high % of placings achieved you might consider a 1 x 2 staking method, staking 1 unit the win and 2 units the place for all selections regardless of their market price. Your longer term returns will be less, but this approach will even out the run of win outs when they occur and assist in maintaining your long term betting bank.
