Horse Racing Betting Tips

Ten form analysis and betting traps to avoid.

I remember talking to a punter years ago who said our top selections were not returning a profit. I politely asked if he backed a certain horse we had on top that won the previous week. "No. I missed that one," was the reply. It had won at $33.00 - and I felt like telling him where to go...

The simple fact is that like most punters he got put off by the odds. If the horse had been $3.00 instead of $33.00 then he would have backed it!

Many punters ruin their ability to bet winners at good odds and instead find a horse to back at poor value odds by accepting any number of the following statements without proper justification.

Start querying them and you'll be surprised how you'll have a completely different perspective when you do your form for a race and back plenty of horses that most punters dismiss outright.

1. It's carrying too much weight to win.

2. It can't possibly win from that barrier.

3. It can't beat the favourite.

4. But it hasn't won at this distance.

5. I know it won last start but it's up in class here.

6. It finished too far from the winner at its last start.

7. Who did you say was riding it?

8. I've never heard of that trainer.

9. This horse can't lose on today's Heavy track. It has won three from three on wet tracks.

10. If it was a genuine winning chance, it wouldn't be at that price. Something must be wrong.
