    Afternoon all, purely for a bit of fun,I thought it would be nice to post all daily selections from UK tracks that had a ROYAL link........so any horse with KING.....QUEEN....PRINCE.....PRINCESS... ROYAL ....LORD......LADY...in its name is a SELECTION.....obviously none of this is based on any FORM criteria.
    I will try to do it when I can ,would be great if others would join in and post any they see running.

    Today

    Wow Finley! My Dad used to do these all the time, amazing how many actually won. Even when he was in hospital he had a 100/1 winner! God rest him, taught me loads about betting. His bet for competitive handicaps was to bet Nrs 3 and 7! Be lucky, I will follow with interest.

    Backing anything with the word 'Royal' in its name is a very old system going back to Victorian times at least, and probably earlier. Told to me by an old geezer who was a bookies' runner back in the 1930s!

    In the last week alone you could have backed the following winners: 2/1, 5/1, 9/2, 11/4, 4/5, 8/1, 15/2, 13/8 just by picking No. 1 in Handicap Chases.

    :gasp:

    #3 and #7 doing the business so far today.

    Yeah, I didn't follow that system today but coincidentally they were the numbers on my 2 winners from 3 so far today. Will have to check the numbers on my remaining picks.
  • Scotstam

    Think it was 9 winners today either #3 or #7 in all racing. Will keep tabs on this over next few days and see what it produces. If my numbers are correct that was 36% strike rate doing both numbers each race.

    In handicaps only it was 5 winners from 12 races. Which is 41%.

    I have been having small e/w bets on the 3 and 7system but rejecting anything lower than 6/1, then occasionally including 1 into the mix which gave a 100/1 placer in the 7.30. still didn't produce a profit today but thats probably down to my lack of self discipline.

    It would be interesting to see if there are any other "fun systems " that the members have heard of. I remember the one on here was to bet a horse that had 3 letters in its name which had to be one word only and be in the first 4 in the betting. Also recall the 3rd letter in the name had be R. system.Both systems would throw up a few winners. Another I wrote down somewhere was where you added the top and bottom weights in handicaps then made some simple maths calculations which slip my mind for the moment. I will dig it up and post it. Nice to know if there are many more of these old chestnuts about .
