More profit on horse racing

We took the Industry Starting Price (SP) for all winners in 2017 at the Cheltenham, Grand National, Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood Festivals and then compared it to the price available on Smarkets just before the off. A winning £10 bet on every race using Smarkets (with 2% commission only on winnings) would have made you 55% more profit than the SP.
