Horse Racing Systems And How To Devise Your Own
Most punters are picking their selections on form based systems. If a horse is in winning form. To make a profit from horse racing systems you must be a bit cleverer than this.
I think most people lose at horse racing because they over stretch their betting banks, especially during a losing run, it's very difficult to stop and have a look at the situation. If this is true for you too then devising a system with a high strike rate may be your best bet.
The betting market
Many professional gamblers base their horse racing selections around the betting market. Although the favourite in the betting market wins around one in three times, backing the favourite blindly you would lose about 6% of you stake money over time. But if you found a way of backing the favourites in certain types of races say non-handicap races in moderate fields you would break even. A few more tweaks and rules and you could edge into a slight profit again.
Trainers and jockeys
A lot of the best horse racing systems I have devised have been based on backing winning inform trainers. If you can follow a trainer hitting form many of their bigger priced longshot horses win as well. Backing jockeys inform can also pay off. Some professionals think that jockeys have longer winning runs than trainers. Remember Frankie Dettori going through the card at Ascot?
Course and distance winners
If a horse has won over the course or distance it is a more important factor than most punters consider. I look for specialist horses that like quirky tracks such a Chester or Fakenham. The old adage horse for courses is certainly still true. If you can find a system based around these facts you are on to a winner. One system that seemed to work well once was backing the only horse in a race that was a distance winner. Specialist distances such as two and a half miles over the jumps and seven furlongs on the flat racing are worth looking out for. Some horses only seem to win at these distances.
You can get all of the newspaper tipster's selections from the Racing Post newspaper. Good systems can be based around these tipsters. You tend to find that if you back their selections in every race you would probably be slightly down in profit. But if you can see which type of races these tipsters excel in and only back their selections in these it could turn a loss into a nice profit.
The daily naps table
Good systems can be based around the daily newspaper tipster nap. The nap bets are the tipster's best bets of the day. Following the top two tipsters on top of the naps table towards the end of the season usually pays off.
