Simple & Effective Race Selections
Form guide ratings can be as
simple or complicated as you like but most would
agree that the straightforward and effect method of
race selection provided by Jadwiz Racing gives the
racing punter the best way forward.
Finding winners is not always easy
but we can achieve our goal by first getting
ourselves a starting point and this is done by
concentrating on the first three in the ratings.
By concentrating on the top three
rated horses gives us the advantage of knowing it
has some of the best form lines in the race and at
the same time effectively makes the event a more
This approach is always a good
idea as it speeds up the selection process and gives
us more time to do other things, after all we don't
want to get bogged down looking for selections.
Now backing three runners in a
race is not always a good idea and as a punter we
need to find some extra helpful information so that
we can make our race selections which is easily
achieved by making use of the race write up which is
available for all races.
These write ups or runner comments
if you like contain extra valuable information which
punters can readily make use of and only takes a few
seconds to read and by reading these comments we
will also know if the trainer & jockey are inform.
There are other methods that
punters use to find their race selections and we
will cover that in the next chapter which is making
use of racecourse specialists which can often be
helpful in pin pointing big priced winners.
Finding course Specialists
Some punters swear by course
specialists and why shouldn't they, after all they
have the proven form and its not only the horses
that do well at certain courses but also jockeys and
As we all know trainers are
creatures of habit and once they have their winning
formula the recipe does not tend to change and this
is where the astute punter can gain an edge.
This is why Jadwiz Racing provide
extensive information on horses, trainers, jockeys
and even sires at different racecourses and is
easily obtained. But having the information is only
half the battle as we also need to know how to use
it to get ourselves the best possible advantage.
Knowing the strike rate is all
well and good providing that there are enough runs
but this is not always the case and that is why we
also show the number of times that the horse,
trainer jockey and sires have filled the first three
In the example image below we have
chosen sire specialists for today's meeting at
Brighton which displays both the specialists name
(which in this case is the sire) and horse
name along with the race meeting.
The race meeting is hyperlinked so
all you need to do is click and it takes you right
to the selected race.
A horse may have had one win from
seven starts at a particular course which is not a
great strike rate but if we also know that it
finished in the first three on all the other starts
then this is useful.
It tells us that its not far away
when running at the course and therefore can often
go in a very good odds where as if it has a good
strike rate everyone knows it does well and the
starting price is not so good.

Enhancing The Method
So we have our simple and
effective method of using course specialists but why
stop there after all with a bit more thinking who
knows what we could come up with which would get us
an even bigger advantage.
So what could we do?
Well we could cross reference our
list of horses against the trainers, jockeys and
sires for the today's course runners, this would not
only cut the list down to a more manageable size but
also make sure that everything is in our favour.
While this would take a bit more
time and work by the user it could provide a huge
advantage and sill be a relatively simple way of
finding race selections.
When I say cross reference I mean
check each list at the selected meeting, example
list the jockey, trainer, sire and horse specialists
and see which ones appear in each list.
It would be up to the individual
on how may lists each one appears but with a bit of
trial and error the could very well be an edge.
