Hi, 

 

There are probably loads of us that signed up yesterday for FTS Racing, yes we’ve watched the videos, but then are we just looking at the pretty colours wondering if we’ve done it right or wrong?

I raced in and thought I’d found a system, then looked back over historic data and it didn’t fair too well.

My biggest issue is finding even one rule that is true for both 2017 and 2018 data so I’m wondering if either those years were so different or I’m a complete numpty, then it occurs to me, is 2017 data even relevant to 2019/2020, the system might be. I don’t know.

 

So a plea to those that know more, where to start, what to consider?

Yes I joined the racing FTS yesterday for the year. Now I’m wondering if I should have signed up for 3 months because I’m finding it a bit much.

One thing I do know is we have to put in the work and especially with horses it’s a long term process, there is no overnight successes, that why I signed for a year,

I had a couple of systems that had good profit this year but in the previous two years the profit was greatly reduced or even ended in a loss, im in the process of pasting all the years into one big excel sheet with some laying columns too, hopefully this will help finding a system that works from 2017-2019

There are definitely systems for the main database that are profitable over the 3 seasons, you really need to put the work in chaps as  it does take some time to find them and work them out, certainly longer than a few hours.

Also don’t just use the databases use the RAP tool as this looks for systems over 3 years and there are some really good systems to be found in there, all course and odds specific 

Don’t forget “If it was easy everybody would be doing it”

The RAP tool whilst brilliant is going to take me a long long time to figure out, with the databases I think I find something from the 2019, look at 2018 and it’s ok but then the 2017 shows -200 pts or something daft, or variations on the theme.

I do love mashing numbers though so I’m happy as a pig in shit just testing.

Did just have a winner from minimum stakes using the technique in Ian’s video on databases.
