Default dutching for a place

Place dutching, is it possible? Is there a calculator available? Has anyone any experience with dutching for a place?

I assume the maths would be quite involved, with different field sizes and some countries offering 4 place getters. Betfair also has the option of 4 place results on certain races.

But if we opt for the standard (in Aust) 3 place dividends.......anyone?

Mike.

I have never thought about it. Its an interesting idea.

Can you expand on what you are thinking?

Dutching for 1 place is easy as the math is the same as the dutching for a win.

Dutching for X placings is a little more complex but I think I could work it out.

Give me an example of what your thinking and I'll see what I can come up with.

Been doing it for years...as a layer.
Not as complicated as people make out.
No calculator needed.

Hi UB

I was thinking of taking the same 3 or 4 selections I'd dutch for the win, but instead dutching for 2 of them to place.

Placing just one of them would give lower returns but a higher strike rate.

So, 2 to 3 selections for one of them to run a place, (as you say it's same as dutching for a win)
And 3 to 5 selections to run two places.

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi Mark, how many selections would you lay per race, or is it dependent on the odds?

[QUOTE=Mike367]Hi UB

Actually it seems its not the same as dutching the win as the are 3 chances to place as opposed to 1 to win. That would alter the calculations and the top 3 chances are often less than $2 to place. This gives a negative result when using the dutch to win calculator.

Mike
pretty certain the answer to that will be "I lay them all"

I'm not a layer but I agree, dutchingr for place is not a viable idea due to odds. I often back two dogs for a place but hey have to be $3 and over.

Hi Mark, you lay the field? Dogs?
Thorns you too?

When laying the field do you lay to a liability? Or are there selected races where you lay level stakes? Or maybe dutch lay the field, if thats possible?

A couple of pointers would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
Mike.
