1What time are tips released?
Saturday: 10:30 am
Wednesday: 11:00 am
2How are odds recorded?
The Raceday file will specify if you should take a fixed price, TF, or Best Tote price.
The fixed price recorded is never the top price and you can beat the TF or Best tote prices by using the BOB product most bookmakers have.
3What is a Rated Price?
A Rated price is an assessment of a horse’s chance of winning the race. If a horse is assessed at $3 (2 to 1) then we are saying it has a 1 in 3 or 33% chance of winning.
4What is an overlay?
An overlay is where the available price for a selection exceeds the rated price.
5What is a unit? How much is a unit worth?
A unit is basically whatever you want it to be! AC MARKETS uses a notional 1000 unit bank. That means whatever the size of your betting bank is you can follow the recommendations. If your betting bank (your total capital available for betting these selections) is $1000 then it is easy 1 unit = $1. If your bank is $4000 then 1 unit =$4. If the RACEDAY PDF suggests a 12 unit bet, the amount would be 12 times 4 = $48
6How should I stake my bets?
Staking is very important. The Raceday PDF provides suggested staking amounts according to a 1000 unit bank.
7Why do you recommend backing more than one runner in a race?
Sometimes there will be value in more than one runner. If 2 or three horses are good value bets then it makes sense to back them all. This will ensure that a profit is returned more frequently. Over the long term this strategy will reduce variance and protect your bank from larger losing runs and periods of drawdown.
8Am I guaranteed to win?
No unfortunately not. There is no guarantee you will win following the recommendations. However if you are able to master staking, money management and discipline, you can expect to show a long term profit.
9Are AC Markets ratings computer generated?
No. Andrew uses a computer in his work but the selections and ratings for each race are “hand crafted”. It is not a matter of pressing a button on a computer. Adjustments for relevant factors and variables are made “manually” for each individual scenario.
10What meetings are covered by AC Markets?
AC MARKETS covers NSW metropolitan race meetings with the exception of Sunday meetings. The Victorian service covers Wednesday and Saturday racing and Public Holidays
11Why aren't there any selections for some races?
AC MARKETS will identify the best opportunities of the meetings covered. That means some races are best left alone. If you want to win long term you have to develop the discipline to not bet in every race irrespective of whether you are winning or losing for the day
12Why don’t you recommend each way bets?
In the long term the win market provides the greatest opportunity for profit because the bookies edge is smaller than place and exotic markets. There is nothing to stop you betting selections on an each way basis and this could be profitable, especially with longer priced runners, however we suggest sticking to win betting gives the best chance of long term success.
