Selection criteria – Filters

The middle section is dedicated to filters and selection criteria. The filters are used to select the best opportunities of the day. If no filter is selected, the full list of the day’s runners is displayed in the selections table.

By clicking the button , you will reset the filters to their defaullt values. To the right of this button is displayed the name of the current configuration if you have saved it (here Bet On All Tips).

Filters list:

  • Races
    • GB/IRE
      Only UK/IRE races are processed by HR B2L as the volume of other countries’ markets (US/AUS), especially in-play, is too low to place such bets. If you only want UK races, uncheck the IRE box.
    • Flat/Jump
      Contrary to what many punters think, the DOB is not just for flat races, or for runners who are in the lead. On the contrary, there are many possibilities in jump races.
    • Only Reliable
      By reliable, we mean races where there is enough data to have a fairly accurate picture of each starter, or types of races known to give random results (amateur races, etc).
      Therefore, if you check this option, the following races will be excluded, and no horses related to them will be displayed:
      • Claiming races
      • Selling races
      • Maiden races
      • Amateur races
      • Novice races
      • Beginners races
      • Races for apprentices and lads jockeys
    • Nb Run.
      This is the maximum number of runners per race. For example, if you only want to display selections that run in races with a maximum of 10 runners, enter the value 10.
  • Runners
    • 1/2/3 Form
      By ticking this filter, only horses whose recent form (see form column) contains at least a 1st, 2nd, 3rd result can be selected.
    • Last≤30 d.
      By ticking this filter, only horses that have run in the previous 30 days can be selected.
    • DOB+
      By ticking this filter, only horses that have a profitable DOB (all races) can be selected (negative DOB are written in red).
      >> What does “profitable DOB” mean?
      In fact, by clicking on “Search”, the software will perform a number of calculations on each horse, including the calculation of the profit/loss of the horse if we had bet the DOB on each of its races. You can see this value by hovering over the column called “DB” (ALL RACES).
      e.g. The following horse did 8 times the DOB out of 11 races, and we would have won £46.54 (including Betfair commission)
    • OB+
      By ticking this filter, only horses that have a profitable DOB/TROB/HDOB (all races) can be selected.
    • ALL+
      By ticking this filter, only horses that have a profitable DOB/TROB/HDOB/A%/D%/AT/DT/Best (all races) can be selected.
    • Jockey
      Hot Jockey. By ticking this filter, jockeys with rides at today’s meeting that have a 15% or greater strike rate in the last month will be selected.
      Cold Jockey. By ticking this filter, jockeys with rides at today’s meeting that are on a losing run will be selected, untick it to remove these jockeys from the selections.
      Other Jockey. By ticking this filter, jockeys neithor Hot nor Cold will be selected.
    • Trainer
      Hot Trainer. By ticking this filter, trainers with runners at today’s meeting that have a 15% or greater strike rate in the last month will be selected.
      Cold Trainer. By ticking this filter, trainers with runners at today’s meeting that are on a losing run will be selected, untick it to remove these trainers from the selections.
      Other Trainer. By ticking this filter, trainers neithor Hot nor Cold will be selected.
    • FC≤
      By ticking this filter, only horses whose forecast odds (Betfair) is equal or less than the decimal value you entered can be selected.
    • Naps≥
      By ticking this filter, only horses that have a number of NAPS equal or greater than the value you entered can be selected. A nap is the strongest fancy that a given horse racing tipster has.
    • Pace
      By ticking this filter, only horses whose pace value is equal or greater than the value you entered can be selected. The higher the number, the higher chance the horse is most likely to get and keep the lead.
    • NbR
      By ticking this filter, only horses whose number of races that meet the criteria is equal or greater than the value you entered can be selected.
    • Best%
      By ticking this filter, only horses whose Best Drop % (column Best) is equal or greater than the value you entered can be selected.
    • Rating
      By ticking this filter, only horses whose Rating value (BET TIP) is equal or greater than the value you entered can be selected.
  • General Rules
    • Best
      By ticking this option, only the best selection of each race will be selected. This selection is made after applying the Races and Runners filters.
    • Single
      By ticking this option, only races that have a unique selection that matches the filters will be displayed.
    • Same Track
      By ticking this option, calculations will only be based on races (Betfair Historical Data) that were run on the same track or same layout.
    • Same Distance
      By ticking this option, calculations will only be based on races (Betfair Historical Data) that were run on the same distance:
      • +/- 100 meters (0.5 furlong) (races 1 mile)
      • +/- 200 meters (1 furlong) (races > 1 mile)

The qualifiers in the table can be sorted in many ways, with most of the columns of the table:

  • Event Name, Horse Name, Forecast (FC), Naps and Pace
  • “LAST 3 RACES” columns: DOB, TROB, HDOB, Avg %, Dev. %, Avg Ticks and Dev. Ticks
  • “ALL RACES” columns: DOB, TROB, HDOB, Avg %, Dev. %, Avg Ticks, Dev. Ticks, Best and Rating

By default the numbers displayed in the table are percentages, however you can display the Profit/Loss values instead by selecting the option P/L in Data.
