Why is there, I wonder, so much trepidation attached to Handicap races? Can it be because fewer favourites win Handicaps than so-called normal races. Perhaps that may have something to do with it. But by utilising THE GEORGE WRIGHT HANDICAP SYSTEM wisely it will make handicaps much more of an attractive proposition for you by providing many regular, decent priced winners.
To successfully operate this system you will need one of the specialist Racing papers, either the Sporting Life or The Racing Post, the betting forecast in an ordinary Daily newspaper will not be accurate enough for our needs. All examples, trials and statistics studied have been obtained by using the above named papers.
We are having a serious attempt at making Handicap races pay here, and pay for US, not the Bookmaker. So the first thing that we must do is eliminate all those really big fields, you know the sort I mean, those with 20+ runners where it looks like The Charge Of The Light Brigade coming down the hill. I admit, it is a terrific sight, but our primary aim here is to WIN, so don't bet on those races, just sit back and enjoy watching the spectacle.
The next thing that we must now do is eliminate nearly all of the other Handicap races as well!
In fact any Handicap race with more than SIX runners we are definitely not interested in! Nor are we interested in fields of LESS than six runners, but for a different reason.
With less than six runners in a race you simply will not get any value for money. The purpose of THE GEORGE WRIGHT HANDICAP SYSTEM, apart from providing plenty of winners of course, is to find decent priced winners as well. So, go through the race card each day and look for any SIX RUNNER HANDICAP RACES - these, and only these, are the races that we are going to use.
If there are not any that day, then quite simply there is no bet. If there is more than one qualifying race, use the selection procedure and back them both if the race is run at different times. If, by some unfortunate coincidence, the races are at the same time, select the race with the highest prize money.
The majority of six runner handicap races are won by the first second or third horse in the betting forecast. This is a statistically proven fact, we know that the winner will, with incredible regularity, come from one of these three.
But which one?
You are probably thinking to yourself right now: "With my luck, even by narrowing it down like this, I am still bound to pick the wrong one! ".
Well, simply by following a logical line of reasoning THE GEORGE WRIGHT HANDICAP SYSTEM takes all the guess work out of it for you.
Remember, we are after value, so we select the THIRD favourite in the betting forecast -
Because he is the better Price
Statistically it has just as much chance of winning as the first and second forecast favourites, precisely the same, no more no less, so by selecting the third forecast favourite we are consistently going to get the best price and so, over a sustained period of time, it is CERTAIN to pay off.
In fact, you can expect an average price of 7-2 for the third forecast favourite. You will average out at 33% winners using this system, and at an average price of 7-2 this is beginning to sound very attractive. However, this system gives you one other bonus as well that really makes it pay big for you.
Over a three year study for THE GEORGE WRIGHT HANDICAP SYSTEM the longest losing run was only eight consecutive losers. So if we could develop an effective staking plan to go with this, we could have a very worthwhile proposition indeed.
It is mentioned above that there was a run of eight consecutive losses, it should be stressed though that this was not, by any means, the norm, in fact it was such a rare occurrence that it is perfectly possible to show a healthy profit simply by using level stakes. However, if you wish to maximise your potential return with THE GEORGE WRIGHT HANDICAP SYSTEM it is suggested that you use the following staking method: 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5, reverting back to one point stakes after a winner.
You will see from the staking method that we allow for a run of ten losses, even though the maximum ever reached was eight, this is merely a precautionary measure, it is doubtful it will ever be needed.
However, if it is, simply return to 1 point stakes and progress again, you will soon recover your losses.
EXAMPLE 1 (Pre-tax)
3RD FORECAST FAVOURITE - 1PT STAKED - LOSE - 1PT LOSS.
3RD FORECAST FAVOURITE - 1PT STAKED - LOSE - 1PT LOSS. (MINUS 2PTS)
3RD FORECAST FAVOURITE - 2PTS STAKED - WIN 4-1 - (8PTS - 2PTS) = 6PTS PROFIT. RETURN TO IPT STAKE.
Note: To demonstrate just how effectively this staking method is with THE GEORGE WRIGHT HANDICAP SYSTEM, there now follows an example of what a fairly typical poor run will look like, and how, by having decent priced winners virtually guaranteed, any possibility of incurring heavy losses is practically eliminated.
EXAMPLE 2 (POOR RUN COMING UP)
3RD FORECAST FAVOURITE - 1PT STAKED - LOSE - 1PT LOSS.
3RD FORECAST FAVOURITE - 1PT STAKED RACE 2 LOSE - IPT LOSS (MINUS 2PTS)
3RD FORECAST FAVOURITE - 2PTS STAKED - LOSE - 2PTS LOSS (MINUS 4PTS)
3RD FORECAST FAVOURITE - 2PTS STAKED - LOSS - 2PTS LOSS (MINUS 6PTS)
3RD FORECAST FAVOURITE - 3PTS STAKED - WIN 7-2 - (10.5 PTS - 6PTS) = 4.5PTS
PROFIT. RETURN TO 1PT STAKE.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All you need to operate THE GEORGE WRIGHT HANDICAP SYSTEM successfully is to learn to exercise a little bit of patience when selecting your races. Do not be tempted to gamble on more, or less, than six runner Handicaps just because you cannot find a qualifying race for a few days. This system is tried and tested on six runner Handicaps, if you stick to the guidelines you will make consistent long term profits, and surely that is what you desire, isn't it?
