Horse Racing Betting Tips

Horse racing handicapping made easy.

OZmium's horse racing and betting systems forums are among the most popular racing forums in Australia. You will find a link to them in the menu on the left.

This week from the forum archives we are copying an excellent post on handicapping by "Equine Investor". Here it is:

"Here is a useful system I use for handicapping races.

1st - three points
2nd - two points
3rd - one point

Class 1
1st - six points
2nd - four points
3rd - two points

Class 2
1st - 12 points
2nd - eight points
3rd - four points etc.

You can use this method right up to Open, Listed Races and Group Races. Run some sample results and you would be amazed how close you can get. Pick the top selection in points.

The points must only be allocated on recent last three starts and must not be used when resuming from a spell or when there is a dramatic change in track conditions....e.g. fast to slow/heavy.

Very useful when comparing horses running in say a class four race against horses going up in class and others down in class."

"Equine Investor" also gave two other handy tips:

1. "In maiden races where there is little or no exposed form, look for horses where the trainer is part owner of the horse. Often a trainer will buy shares in a horse where they consider it has some ability or bred to win. You may have to follow this horse for a few starts."

2. "When looking at place bets often you can back horses that have won by 2.5 lengths last start if they are not rising in class and they are sometimes not favourite...they start as second or third favourite. These horses have a sensational strike rate if they are not rising in class, not coming back from a spell and the track conditions and distance suit.

Happy punting. Equine Investor."

This information is just as relevant today as four years ago and sensibly used will lead you into many excellent winning bets.
