Since I just started doing this, going to keep things as they are for now. It's possible to add some longer term stuff, and I'll definitely consider it...but not right now.

Thanks.

With one pick left (a 2/5 M/L shot no less), here is how today turned out...hardly any plays, but a profit nonetheless:

Been wondering how I've been doing lately? Having another great day so far...here's my current record with picks posted in the VIP section.

Have hit 6 of 11 on top so far today.

Here are the results of today and my current totals. Petered out a bit at the end, but all in all, a pretty solid day.

Hit 13 of 28 top choice winners. Not too shabby...

I think PA has said that he uses TimeForm numbers. I also think that he uses the pace projector and then does some weighting using a Monte Carlo simulation. He may not do this any more, but I believe that is what he has done in the past.

PA, you definitely have got it GOING ON. Handicapping and playing like a BOSS.

I exclusively use TimeformUS pace & speed figures...and use Excel to generate an odds line using the figures.

So I guess Excel is my software of choice?

I use a web scraping tool to generate a .csv file of the figures I need from the Timeform website for each race, so the process of inputting the figs is semi-automated...but not quite. But I can handicap a race in under a minute using my method.

I don't do trips. I don't look at jockeys, trainers or owners.

Pure figs. And my 158 race sample doesn't even consider overlays. It's just the performance of the top pick bet in each and every race.

The new 9/5 or higher sample is based on betting each pick at 9/5 or higher at 0mtp. As you can see, some of the winners got cut down drastically from 0mtp until the race went off, as is the plague of betting on horses these days.

But yet, I have overcome this handicap...to date...which shows you that you can WIN and WIN NICELY despite late odds drops, while using NOTHING BUT PACE AND SPEED FIGURES.

And they say it can't be done.
