Horse racing is a puzzle. A big puzzle.
With hundreds of potential factors for every single horse, in every single race, it can very quickly become overwhelming.
This is usually when the Google machine comes in and, unfortunately, that simply adds to the confusion.
Because there are thousands of possible approaches and most work for some people and not others.
It leaves you wanting to scream aaaaaggggghhhhh!
But never forget that you’re unique.
You have your own risk levels, your own availability, your own bankroll, your own tolerance for downswings.
To put it simply… nobody else is like you.
Which means that you need to find a strategy that works for you, not someone else.
Here is how we decide the betting approach to take…
Start by choosing very specific race conditions
There are many types of horse racing, each of which has their own characteristics.
Imagine putting a sprint runner into a marathon… there’s no way you’d expect them to win.
And it’s exactly the same for horse racing.
The race conditions will determine what type of horse is going to have the strongest preference to win it.
As a minimum you should start by choosing:
- Race Type
- Distance Range
- Going Type
- Number Of Runners Range
Choose one of each to make up a complete set of race conditions.
You may even want to consider only choosing races with certain classifications as well.
These are the races, the only races, you’re going to want to focus on.
The most common concern when doing this is…
There will be only one or two races a day to analyse.
Hell yes. That’s the point!
If you’re finding five or six races a day on average that meet your race criteria then your race conditions are too broad.
Being specific is the key to understanding.
It allows you to focus on the factors that are relevant to a very specific set of circumstances.
The key is to spend more time analysing fewer races. Spend more time understanding a specific set of race conditions.
Become an expert in one set of race conditions first, and then spread your wings.
All the best,
The Race Advisor
