Welcome aboard our NSW Ratings Package!
These ratings are produced by Nathan Snow, who has spent the past decade as a professional punter and bookmaker in NSW.
The package covers all meetings at the following NSW tracks:
You will receive a schedule each Monday morning listing the meetings that will be covered for the coming week. Alternatively, use this calendar – http://www.racingaustralia.horse/
WHEN & WHERE
This package has 3 key elements:
1. Early Bets
Snowy will send a list of bets directly to your email, right on 9am on the day of the meeting – this is when the NSW minimum bet rules kick in.
To get the most value out of these bets, you should be logged in to your betting accounts and ready to go just before 9am, as these horses firm quickly.
For that reason, the results are recorded at the 3rd best price when the update is sent out.
2. Bets to monitor
The second update is normally sent between 11am and 12pm, and there is no rush to back these horses as they are typically Top Fluc or Best / Top Tote.
3. Full ratings and live page link
You will also get a PDF and Excel ratings sheet for each meeting.
They will list the relevant information for each horse (Name, Number, Jockey, Weight, Previous Form, Trainer, Map) along with Snowy’s rated price, which is framed to a 90% market. That means the available odds for most horses will be under his rated price, since the market percentage is anywhere from 110-130%.
You can use the Excel sheet to see the rated prices in either TAB order or Rated order. The tab at the bottom of the sheet also allows you to enter your own betting bank in dollars so that the outlay reflects your bank.
The live page is open for all meetings covered and gives you a direct line to Snowy himself, so that he can answer any questions you have throughout the day.
You should also download our app (directly from the App store, or via this link for Android) to get push notifications for all updates.
Each bet advised will include a recommended stake in units. 1u = 1% of your betting bank, so simply divide the amount of money you have set aside for punting by 100. Eg. if your bank is $10,000 then 1 unit = $100.
WHO TO BET WITH
To get the best available odds on Early Bets, it’s best to have a number of accounts and use an Odds Comparison site like Dynamic Odds so you can see all the tote, bookmaker and Betfair odds on one screen. The NSW minimum bet laws ensure bookmakers must take all fixed odds bets from 9am on the day of the meeting.
Most “bets to monitor” are recommended at Top Fluc or Best / Top Tote. These options are available with most major bookmakers.
WHEN TO BET
Early bets advised by Snowy typically firm very quickly in the market. These updates are sent at 9am every day, so to get the most value you should be logged into your betting accounts and ready to bet immediately.
Bets to monitor can generally be placed at any time, as most are recommended at Top Fluc or Best / Top Tote.
