Racing By The PointsBy
Are you on the information treadmill and still “manually” trawling over Race Cards and “manually”allocating points to handicap each horse?
Does the following seem familiar?
You have a race card in front of you and you wish to handicap each horse by applying pointing levels to various criteria.
5 points to each horse which won last race.
3 points to each horse which came in 2nd in its last race.
2 points to each horse which came in 3rd in its last race.
1 point to each horse which came in 4th in its last race.
3 points to a horse if it is a Course & Distance winner.
2 points to a horse if it is a Distance winner.
1 point to a horse if it is a Course winner.
etc. etc. etc.
Have you got the picture?….a very laborious and time-consuming exercise indeed.
- Each pointing level has to be “manually” allocated to each horse.
- Each horse’s points has to be “manually” added. and sorted to arrive at a final forecast.
And this is just for one race.
To be blunt…. handicapping horse races for profit using this long-winded approach is a difficult and tedious task.
