Swan Hill, Race 2

#14 RUNNING ON TIME (3) - C Maher & D Eustace

WatchList jump out comments:

RUNNING ON TIME closed well from a clear last last to finish a close 4th in Heat 5 on Nov 7, a nice bit of work in the filly’s second jump out having also finished 4th in an Oct 4 jump out behind Dream Inherit and Whatafox (since 1st MDN by 5L). Unsure of the quality she was against in this jump out but as a $165k buy, she looks to move nice enough to be keeping in mind on debut.

Confidence: Medium.

Race comments: This is a very winnable race with no clear standout and most of the field being relatively exposed. She jumped out well, especially that latest and Harry Coffey at Swan Hill is always a good book, likewise barrier 3. She handled the soft tracks well in her JO's and is out of an NZ mare, so wet should be fine.

Think she'll take up a more forward position than her latest jump out and with the big straight, she can work into it nicely and hopefully come home well. Have her as the main winning chance here and keen to be backing her.

She's $2.80-$3 this morning and think she starts around ~$2.50 so anything around ~$3 is good to take.

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.
