Most Punters have had years of betting
on only one horse but let's get down to brass tacks here.
The fact is that professional backers see nothing wrong
in betting on two or more horses in one race. This method
is known as 'Dutching' which probably comes from the phrase
'Going Dutch' which means that two or more people pay
equal shares of a bill, usually dinner.
We have been betting on two horses in
a race for some time which you can see from our results
page. We have heard the moan that we are betting odds
on most of the time but this is relative to the size of
your stake and I bet to win 170.00 a day and with a strike
rate of 80% plus I see a result on most days. I started
small and built the bank up slowly and that is the best
way to go if you don't want to put too much money at risk
to start off. There is no limit to the size of your stakes
and with such a high strike rate, I place 10% of my bank
on each horse, but if you are nervous about that then
you can feel really secure if you place 5% on each horse.
We can only maintain this strike rate
by betting in carefully selected races and that is the
secret but we will tell you which races to bet on and
which to avoid.
All betting on the horses must be long
term and if you are really serious about making a living
from betting then you need to set up a bank from which
to bet. For many years we have placed 20% on the Dutching
Bets spread across two horses and on our Top Bets which
are win singles we place 10% of the bank. Both the Dutching
Bets and the Top Bets have made a good annual profit for
the last three years. We have never broken the bank and
not many services can say that.
look at a typical Dutching Bet.
tell you to bet on two horses in a race. One of them is
2/1 and the other 5/2.
If the 2/1 bet wins then you have made 2 points less
the loser = 1 point gain.
If the 5/2 bet wins then you have made 2.5 points
less the loser = 1.5 points gain.
All your life you have been told never
to bet at odds on which is the Dutching result but with
an 80% strike rate, this is the safest way to go. If you
normally bet 10% of your bank on win singles then by betting
10% on each of two horses you are still maintaining a
maximum strike rate of 50% with each bet treated as a
win single. We recommend that you start with 5% of your
bank on each horse and slowly build up your bank.
