May's Top Systems

We're taking a look at the top performing systems and the most successful system builders for the month of May, 2015. In order to be considered, a system must have been created before May 1st, 2015.

Biggest Single Winner - Hey Murri (Toowoomba, Race 7, 23rd May) - $101.10

Five systems picked Hey Murri, three of them created by Formulator. It helped The - $harpener$ to the highest return on investment of any system (using flat staking) in May. 16 winners from 132 hits for the month would have almost doubled your money. However, April was a tough month for the system and it still has a bit to prove.

More Bang For Your Buck only had two winners for the month and needed Hey Murri to get it into the positive for May. Even that big winner wasn't quite enough to get it into the black since creation although it has been slightly profitable with proportional betting. The other Formulator system that picked Hey Murri will be discussed below.

Neither of the two non-Formulator systems that picked Hey Murri has shown a consistent ability to get those kinds of winners. SKEvans' Cash Cow is slightly in the red no matter how you might have staked with it, while symorg's Perfecto would have made you a small profit if you'd been flat betting on it since creation thanks to Hey Murri. Both systems would have been marginally profitable in May even without their big winner, but we need to see more from them.

More Hits Than Misses

Three systems had a strike rate of more than 50% from 10 or more runners in May. thebaldman's Amazing Maidens scored on 7 out of 10 short priced runners to deliver a 21% return on investment for the month. It's the 2nd straight profitable month after a poor start to the year and the system is at 6% profit on 80 runners since creation.

Another thebaldman system, Fav game, hit on 17 of 33 selections in May which would have more than tripled your money if you'd flat staked on it all month. This system has been around for about 18 months and this is the first time it's trended in an upward direction, so it will need a few more months like this to really impress.

39% win is a system from eibecka, who had another system just below 50% for May as well which is named 79% place. The numbers have changed a bit since these systems were named but in May 39% win won with 7 of 12 runners to take it's strike rate since creation to 34%. 79% place had 7 winners and 12 placings from 15 May runners.

SYSTEM OF THE MONTH

Males in Blinkers - selection didn't quite match a couple of its Formulator stablemates this month for total returns, but it was another to pick Hey Murri and has been showing steady profits for more than a year now with runners from all over the price spectrum. For May, it had 19 winners from 136 hits which was enough for a 60% profit for the month. Since creation, it has picked winners with 13.4% of its selections and returned a 15% profit with flat staking, putting it on top of the flat staking table for ROI. It's had even higher profitability using the Kelly criterion.

We've been busy revamping the entire site but a June system review will be up in the next few days.
