At Galway, you will often see horses run twice during the Galway Festival, early in the week and subsequently run again. Since 2012 such runners are 22 winners from 133 runners 17% -2.29 A/E 1.22 49 placed 37%. But if we dig a little further we can improve the strike rate and profitability of such horses by adding three logical filters; relating the horses last time out placing, whether it ran on the flat or not in its last race and how well fancied it was in the betting for the race.
Last Time Out Placing: 1st, 2nd or 3rd
Race Code Last Race: Flat only
Odds SP: 8/1 & under
13 winners from 33 runners 39% +27.03 A/E 1.66 21 placed 64% +34.06
I will be adding two further micro angles in next week’s column. For those of you who subscribe to the Eyecatcher Pro Service, I will add any qualifiers, from the above system and the previous micro angles given, onto the software when they run.
