It sure is thrilling to bet your money on how fast a horse can run and how skilfully your jockey can lead your horse towards the finish line. Unless you are a millionaire and it does not matter to you if you lose a million or two, you wouldn’t want to see your horse losing. Horse race betting is more of an art form and here we tell you how you can get it right.
Identify the best horse
The first thing you will have to do is determine which horse has the most chances of winning the race. By determining, we do not mean just looking at the horses and going with your intuition (it may not work all the time, so let’s get calculative here). Go through the details and records about each horse mentioned in the racing form and analyse who has a good chance of winning.
Distance, pace, and speed are very powerful in tandem. Looking at how your horse runs (and, as importantly, how she finishes) in different distances will clue you in to how she’ll perform in races of different lengths.
Take the distance and speed into consideration
To increase your chances of winning, you will have to take into account factors like the speed of your horse and the distance to be covered. You will need to be clear about the way your horse runs while covering different race lengths and how she finishes the race.
Is your horse in ‘form’
Just like your favourite sports players, horses too have form cycles. You cannot expect hundred percent consistency from horses, so you will have to consider if your horse is performing at it’s best or if it will still need time to perform well.
Betting is all about the identifying the odds. You also need to be aware of the kinds of bets and determine which one you need to stick to.
