I talked last week about how I’d got everything in line for the mini festival at the Haydock meeting and contacts were abundant and sectional timings had even come into the equation. The result was actually a small loss for any followers of the Haydock Special that I’d put on. Disappointing to say the least. I’ve gone over the staking plan I’d put together and the only day that it really worked was of course the last day where we really cleaned up. You often wonder in this business if you could predict the winning spurts how differently you would play a festival. More on the winners and less on the losers. Of course this is the benefit of hindsight and although a lot of my clients made good money some didn’t.
What does this all mean though? If I’d tipped everything to level stakes with no variation on points then we would have actually made a 0.76 points profit!! Nothing life changing I know but it shows that the profit was there but the staking wasn’t. Something which proves to be a difficult decision every time someone tips at festivals. When I get information through I look at the size of the stake that the client wants to get on as to whether I tip it for a Max bet or split it with something else. This of course is more difficult over festivals as this is more competitive racing. I’ve realised that the information I get is and has been and will continue to be absolutely spot on but it’s how you stake such a bet that screams importance. We’ve never got it wrong with MATR but with festivals I need to be more consistent and make sure we bet to level stakes as to assure my followers of a profit.
Over the last 14 months MATR has consistently made profits for his members and the staking is absolutely spot on. When I get a Max bet it’s usually a winner and when I split my bets between two horses we quite often hit the double. That’s not fluky tipping that’s a consistent relay of information that means that you’re onto a horse that is expected to win by connections!
