Flemington, Race 2

#3 ZOUSUKO (8) - J McArdle

BlackBook jump out comments:

ZOUSUKO was 2nd on debut to a fast finishing De Sonic Boom in the Blue Diamond Preview before heading to the Blue Diamond Prelude where she was solid without being anything special. Given a freshen up, she returned over 1000m in Heat 2 on Mar 15 to finish 2nd to Curran while ahead of Shalaman where they clocked the fastest time we have recorded at Balnarring, a very good performance for a 2yo filly. They paid $525k for this Zoustar filly and she’s already showed that she has some talent.

We know that everyone takes a different approach to their staking, which is why we don't delve into specific staking for each of our runners and we leave how you stake and bet our runners completely up to the individual.

Personally, we have followed different staking systems over the years to fine tune our own punting, but have found that the most profitable approach is to follow a "Collect system".

This system means that the punter (us) bets on the win only (no place bet) to collect 4% of our bank on every BlackBook runner we have. To begin, you need to select a starting bank - as an example, a starting bank of $10,000 will see us betting to collect $400 (4%) on each runner.

If a runner is $2, we will bet $200 @2 to collect $400.

If a runner is $20, we will bet $20 @20 to collect $400.

If a runner is $3.50, we will bet ~$114 @3.50 to collect ~$400.

We highly recommend having a read of the below PDF document from Dan O'Sullivan in regard to the Six Rules to Increase Profit, Staking like a Professional and Punting As An Investment (see here):
