Lots to consider when creating a horse racing betting system

| 13.04.2011

Picking more winners is the obvious objective for all punters and through utilising a horse racing betting system this hope could become a reality.

More detailed studying could help punters enhance their profits and therefore they may wish to create a system that helps their breakdown of each individual horse taking part in a race.

A number of different criteria could help make up a horse racing betting system and although some pieces of analysis may be more valuable than others, all of it combined may prove useful in making a final selection.

One obvious piece of analysis that may be vital in a system is the current form of a particular horse, as a runner that has been well down the field in his latest starts would logically be ruled out of an upcoming race unless it was taking a massive drop in class.

Therefore, the class of a race in question is also important and whether horses are stepping up or dropping back in standard.

Course form may also be worth considering as certain horses tend to save their best performances for a particular track, with Denman and Inglis Drever among the runners of the past to have always performed admirably at Cheltenham.

A distance that a race is being run over is another essential element to consider, as a horse with proven stamina is not as likely to be as effective over two miles in comparison to another contest over 2m4f.

Equally on the Flat, a speed horse that has tasted success over 5f may struggle to have the same impact over 7f.

Other important things that are worthy of consideration in a horse racing betting system are the weight of a horse, the quality of a jockey given a ride, the state of the ground and how long it has been since a particular horse last run.
