Book Description

1 Mar 2004
Most enthusiasts will admit - although sometimes reluctantly! - that they lose more than they win at their racing. That's because there is often more madness than method in how they choose to place their money. While there's no such thing as the perfect winning strategy, David Duncan has the formula for breaking that losing streak and it's one that novices can follow as easily as the experts. The racetrack is one place where mixing business with pleasure should be the goal. This is the ultimate manual for everyone who shares that belief.

3.0 out of 5 stars once upon a time 16 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a gift for my dad because he's always had moderate success as a punter (i.e. lost a little regularly). I ended up reading the book because I felt sure that he wasn't interpreting it correctly (as per usual). In order to make a point I began running one of the systems defined by the book, namely the 'instant handicapper'. I was a complete rookie. Some 5 months and 300 bets later I still consider myself a newbie to racing but I think I can comment on this book through one of it's key systems. Firstly, have I made lots of money? Absolutely not. Secondly, am I getting hammered? Nope; I'm betting with their money, it's just that there's never much of it to really build on. This is frustrating. I feel close to getting it right and would appreciate something to develop the system. The book does not do this... I've scanned the pages, combined information from different sections and tried to clarify the vague bits but I haven't pieced together a solution. And this gets to my main gripe: the book's authority is lightly, confidently claimed but often what it assumes to know proves to be problematic. In short, the book isn't completely flawed, it just isn't comprehensive enough. And I would guess if you've given systems a proper test then much in here will occur to you as obvious. It is readable. It is concise. It makes no BIG promises (of course) and so overall, it offers sound and simple starts but I'm not (yet) convinced there's much on refining systems towards sure finishers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and (maybe) proftable.... 16 Jan 2009
By lsur
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a nice book for anyone who is just getting into horseracing and doesn't want to spend too much time reading the form but also for more experienced punters looking for new angles. It gives some straightforward systems to narrow down the selections though I think the author's ideas of value are a bit suspect! I think it will still save you money, though whether it will make you any is another matter - any system will have it's limitations compared with full-blown pouring over the form books. If you take the book for what is offered you should get some insights into picking winners and/or have some fun.
