Even more important than knowing when to bet, is knowing when to leave your money in bank. What are the factors that keep you out of a race?
Races held when the going is on the worse side of slow/heavy or very heavy.
Races for early two year olds.
Races for horses of the lowest, for example, Maiden Races Bench Mark 58.
Races in which a number of the main chances are resuming from a spell, that is, first up.
Races in which your prices are the same as the book makers prices so there is no value to be found.
Races in which your top horse is odds on (look on).
