I checked the Bookie Annihilation results yesterday and, with a wager in almost every race, we just about broke even to industry SP. A profit of a couple of points would have been made at Betfair SP.

Winners at Betfair SP were 5.5 (9/2 against ISP of 4/1),Â 3.27/1 vs 11/4 ISP, 2.56/1 vs 2/1 ISP, 13/8 vs 5/4 ISP, evens vs 10/11 ISP, 10.5/1 vs 8/1 ISP, 3.84/1 vs 7/2 ISP, 0.77/1 vs 8/11 ISP, 5.08/1 vs 5/1 ISP, and 12.51/1 vs 12/1. These prices were all bigger than industry SP (ISP) after commission, with the exception of the last two which were very marginally less.
Day one summary: a LOT of action as outlined, some nice priced winners, lots of interest for those watching the races all day, and a small profit at Betfair SP.
If you watch a lot of racing and like to bet from race to race, Bookie Annihilation might work for you. But if you don’t, it won’t be as it is a high maintenance affair with little upside (but probably little downside too).
