You can pinpoint the most likely races that you will be interested in quite quickly by looking through the betting forecast in the racing pages section.
First make a note of any forecast favorite in the 2-1 to 5-4 region. These and only these are the horses we are interested in.
To maximize its potential you need to take notice of the betting as each of these races comes up which means either being on-course, in a bookmakers or operating from home on an online betting site.
When the market opens on our chosen race watch how the favorite reacts, if it drifts out in price to 5-2 or more immediately eliminate that race. We are no longer interested in having a bet.
However if the price of our horse, the forecast favorite begins to harden in price then keep a very close eye on it because if all of the following rules are met to our satisfaction we could decide to have a bet on it.
1. Wait as long as possible before placing your bet.
2. If the price of the horse drifts out ignore it for betting purposes. Just watch and see what happens the chances are it will lose.
3. If the price hardens to a minimum of 4-6 then this is the one to be on. This is why you must hold back from placing your bet as long as possible.
4. If the price hardens to les than 4-6, do not bet.
There is no such thing as a certainty on horse racing and very short priced losers hurt.
With this method you have a very good indicator of when a horse is well fancied to win.
Statistics show that you can expect 75% winners from using this system.
