Hi,

Apologies for the delay in getting started reviewing the Racing Investment Formula.   Here in Andalucia we have just had a 30 hour long thunderstorm which took out 3 or more substations in our area leving us in the mountains with no electricity.   Were finally connected sometime during last night.     As we have had no rain at all since last mid April I suppose it all came at once !

However, on to business.    This system is basically related to the Weight of the Money, so beloved by odds traders on the betting exchangers.     The system has a simply operated piece of software wherein the odds taken at a half hour before the race of at least the top 4 or 5 favourites; then the odds are entered again 1 minute before the off, when the software makes the final calculations.    

Depending upon the results calculated by the software, further manual criteria is applied for you to decide whether to Back Win, Back Place, Lay, or Place Lay, depending upon the number of runners and whether the race is a handicap or not.

Sounds a bit complicated but it is all broken down and laid out in the instructions.

I have laid out the initials of the runners, results of the odds movement, back/lay decision, and race result.
