For Ian’s selections, there are no prices given as a guide for each horse, so are we saying that we can bet on them at any price?

That doesn’t seem right to me as there must be a price over which it’s value and anything below it isn’t.

How do people approach this? Are you just betting at SP?

Great, thanks.

If you’re betting at BSP how are you deciding on stakes, given that you don’t know what the price is going to be?  Are you just flat staking on each horse?  Or just estimating the likely price and then dutch the horses for equal profits?

Another one thats personal choice, if you dutch you will get an average outcome on the price which would probably be better long term, on the flip side by using level stakes  there is always the chance of a nice big winner.

I took what I wanted to risk (1pt) per race and I split this into part for dutch and part for level stakes. Currently I only put £2 per horse LS and £10 overall dutch stake. See how these go and increase slowly on profits.
