BLACKBOOK RUNNERS - WATCHLIST
Geelong, Race 1
#10 WHITTEN (6) - M Price & M Kent Jnr
His first jump out on Oct 10 was only fair at best, but not a lot went right. The improvement he took into his Oct 24 jump out though was immense, he trucked into it like a really nice horse as if he was going to explode to the lead and win but was kept under wraps to finish 3rd.
This looks a winnable race. Thornycroft is in a similar boat - first JO on Oct 14 was okay but did make good ground, like his latest JO - looks like he'll need some distance and likely gets back from barrier 12. Nothing else has been any standout at the jump outs either - Regulus only fair, Kurolation was okay. Crazy needs to improve but does get blinkers.
He was a $300k purchase and is a half-brother to the talented Chicago Cub. Happy to have a bet on him here - if we didn't get the ~$7+ in early markets, can still back at the $5.50+ this morning - he's a nice E/W price still.

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.
