Winning Horse Racing Betting

How you can win long term

To make money long term at racing involves many hours of work each week in detailed form study and video analysis followed by disciplined betting. There are no short cuts for anyone who wants to do this.

To win at racing you need to develop a thorough grasp of:

1. Horse classes
2. Fitness of horses
3. Individual characteristics of horses
4. How weight affects different horses
5. Times - including sectional times
6. Rating methods including time ratings and weight ratings.
7. Betting percentages.
8. Jockeys - strengths and weaknesses.
9. Trainers - they need to be thoroughly watched for clues.
10. Racetracks' characteristics including bias
11. Barrier positions of horses. Just one late scratching at the barrier can also significantly alter the race.
12. An ability to ignore the racing media and to ignore the popular opinions.

There are many more things that could be added to the list. Even then, with hours of work each week there is no guarantee of success.

Not everyone who wants to succeed will be able to play football at a professional level. Not everyone has the aptitude to be an accountant or research scientist or a landscape painter. It is no different with horse racing form analysis and betting.

But if you can succeed it is very rewarding.

At Pro-Punter with our full time expertise we are able to beat the market. We do this by discovering horses with realistic winning chances that others dismiss. Like last Saturday at Eagle Farm when Vanishing Powder $56.10 led all the way and won.
