EXTRA PLACE RACES
A winner, a 2nd and 3 losers yesterday for a profit of £70. Total now £2,073.70.
|PONT||1.25||Kupa River (7)||7.00||UNIBET||4|
A place and 3 losers today for a loss of £147.38. July showed a profit of £397.13. Total now £1,926.33.
Overall there have been 1,115 selections with 183 winners, 422 places and 510 losers.
LSP is 38.53 points with a ROI of 3.5%.
The place bets have derived a profit of 80.95 points, the win bets a loss of 41.43 points.
There have been 96 occasions when the horse has finished in the extra place. This has accounted for 101.95 points.
I don't see the logic of this unless there is a grater than average chance that the horse will lose.
Everything else being equal I would expect to lose 2% (Betfair commission) by laying.
So with 1,115 bets at £25 I would reduce my profit by £557.50.
Unless my logic is incorrect.

Your logic is correct, but it depends on the disparity between the bookie price and the Betfair price. It may be possible to scrape that 2% back. Whether it's worth the effort is another question.
