Horse Racing Handicapping Secrets To Finding Winners

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 125

The one thing I would advise new punters to do is to take notes every time you go racing. After a while keep going over your notes and you will find patterns emerging from them that you can base winning systems around.

A big priced winner going in could be something as simple as liking the heavy going or it hits form at a particular time of the year.

It amazes me how many gamblers do not take track conditions into consideration as this a massive factor. Check horses previous results to see if it can handle the days going conditions.

Another area to watch for that finds plenty of winners are horses dropping down in class. Horses that drop down in class of three four grades are a big threat.

Good recent form is one of the main things I tend to look for in picking a winning horse. If a horse has not had a run within say 30 to 40 days I would be very wary of backing it.

Try to understand which horses running styles are suited for which types of races. Sprint races over five and six furlongs suit early speed horses.

Here is a check list for determining if a horse has winning credentials and whether to play or pass.

Determine which horse are the true contenders. If you cannot whittle the field down to two or three contenders then leave the race alone. It is probably too competitive.

Get to know which races to bet in and which to pass. Look for moderate fields of between eight to ten runners with most horses showing plenty of exposed form.

If you narrow a race down to just two horses and you think that one of them will definitely win you could make a nice profit if you back them both. This is called dutching some punters even back three of four in a race if the odds are big enough.

A simple way of finding winners is to look for the four-day horse. This is a horse that is entered into races within a four-day period of winning its last race. You can be assured that these are in good racing form and will win again.

I make most of my big bets now in the middle of the flat racing season. During this time I back horses in handicap races. I make sure they are in winning form and are ahead of the handicapper.
