What form factors do horse racing specialists/tipsters analyse?
Here are some but not all the factors that horse racing specialist analyse before making their horse racing betting selections;
Previous market moves
Bookmakers have the upper hand in sports betting markets. They use algorithms and other techniques to set prices. And they have a knack for providing odds that reflect on the possible outcome of a race. That said, we analyze the market moves to identify the horses that are likely to dominate the race day.
Horse races are categorized in distance travelled. While a horse may excel in a long-distance race, it may not do well in short distances. This is one of the factors that we consider when putting together our lucky 15 tips.
We look at how various trainers have been performing, including their recent history. The question we ask ourselves at this point is how a particular horse trained by a specific trainer is performing. If there is a dip in the form of a particular horse on the racecourse, then it doesn’t make it to our lucky 15 predictions.
When we talk of class factor, we are referring to a combination of qualities that a horse possesses. These are the likes of speed, determination, and stamina. Each horse belongs to a certain class. And the horse that has superior qualities is included in our race day lucky 15 tips.
You will find that when a particular trainer is paired with a particular jockey, they tend to win more races. This is a pattern that we don’t ignore when preparing our lucky 15 tips.
Course record (trainer)
Some trainers excel on certain racecourses. The horses and jockeys that they train in these tracks can’t seem to stop winning. We are keen to identify course records and incorporate them into our tips.
Race record (trainer)
Every trainer has a race record. Talented trainers have an impressive race record under their belt, and their chances of winning the next race are always high.
Course record (horse)
Some horses tend to do well in certain racecourses than others. When we look at the past performances of a horse in a given course, we can tell which horse is likely to flourish on the race day. This is the kind of horse that makes it to our lucky 15 bet list.
Course record (jockey)
A jockey may find course A more favourable than course B. As such, this jockey will win most races of the races that take place on course A. Our analysts consider this aspect when compiling lucky 15 tips for punters.
Speed ratings are a great way to sort our the contenders from the non contenders in each race.
Lucky 15 bets are a great way to enjoy a recreational bet on horse racing (or other sports if your bookie offers it) with the main benefit being you can get a return if just one of your horses wins out of the 4 selected.
