Backing two horses in a race and getting the ultimate result!

There is always that race where you find it impossible to separate two horses. When the prices are big enough the sensible solution is simply take them both and accept, as they both can’t win, you will be dropping a point on your return. Over the past couple of weeks having two selections in a race has been a common occurrence for subscribers to The Actuary All Weather Horse Racing Tips and I know from past experience that any attempt in settling for one or the other can be fool hardy and the odds are that you will only get it right 50% of the time.


As my four selection methods are mechanical, what tends to happen is that one method throws up one horse while another method throws up another. This was the case yesterday in Wolverhampton’s 3:40. One horse I took at 11-1 and between 16 – 14.5 on the exchanges (Cosquillos). The other 6-1 Bookmakers and 8’s on the exchanges (Warbrook).



Most of my work is carried out the day before so I seldom have to suffer the slings and arrows delivered by the racing pundits to stain my view, but it was poignant yesterday that pre-race ATR’s Simon Mapletoft is telling me that one of my two selections can’t win. ‘Warbrook racing of a mark of 66 and is in the sales next month’ dampened my thoughts of its chances.

To have the pair duelling, fighting out a head bobbing finish was more than any punter could ask for. To then have the good fortune where the bigger priced of the two prevails was even more satisfying. Hats off to Simon Mapletoft, Warbrook didn’t win, it was beaten a head by our other selection Cosquillos. Should I mind that my 11-1 became 10-1 and my 16 on the exchanges was worth only 15? I think not.

Now to sort out Stand Guard and La Estrella ;)

Have a great day Folks and may the best horse win
