Some take-aways from this analysis:

  • The pattern is confirmed, the strike rate falls off as the SP increases; in general and across individual odds ranges.
  • Also, as entirely expected, as the odds lengthen the strike rate worsens.
  • For the 1st favourite, in individual odds ranges the 1st favourite metropolitan outperforms the provincial and country.
  • For provincial and country racing the odds bet about the 1st favourite are more concentrated at the shorter end.
