Selection of Races

Before setting out the criteria for selecting horses, it is important to specify the rules regarding the choice of races to bet.

These few simple rules will allow you to focus on the most reliable races and therefore the easiest to predict.

It is advisable to avoid the following races:

  • Claiming races (except in USA),
  • Maiden races (not enough data available),
  • Amateur races,
  • Novice races,
  • Beginners races,
  • Races for apprentices and lads jockeys,
  • Races for two years old and three years old.

Why? Because most of the time there is not enough data to analyse these races. This is not to say there may not be good betting opportunities in such races, rather experience says there are more secure opportunities elsewhere.

As a rule of thumb, the higher the winning prize money, the more horses will be good and easy to analyse.
