Guide to Betting Horse Racing
There are some people who want to bet on a horse racing but are clueless on where to start. It just likes some other betting game where money is involved but this time it is about horses. To understand more and win the race, here are some tips on betting in horse racing.
First of all, ignore those with the jockeys silk and have nice colors or any design and don’t try and pick a cool sounding name. It doesn’t give any chance of winning the race.
Look at the jockey who’s riding the horse and the trainer of the horse. Make sure to pick the good trainer and then the good jockey who made more wins in the race. There are sections that say’s top trainers and top jockeys. It is important to choose the top jockeys and trainers because they are the one who takes care of the horse.
The next thing to put into consideration is the numbers written beside the horse name. Look for the numbers 1, 2 and 3 that means first, second and third in a race and also if it has a few of these in its last five races. It has a good chance to run well because the horse had a time to take a rest.
Of course the most important in this betting horse racing game is the horse itself. Choosing the right horse with a good form and winning record is the perfect choice. Now how would you find these horses?
The first thing you should be aware for is if the horses have already been successful in a competition on that distance or course. To recognize these horses, you should check at the right corner where the name is placed. You will notice a letter “C” if the horse has been successful in a race before. On the other hand, a letter “D” will be seen if the horse has already succeeded a race in the same distance.
Sometimes you will see a “CD” meaning the horse has won a race at this course at the same distance. This is a perfect choice because it has already won any race and it has the potential of winning again in at any course with the same distance.
One important thing you should be aware of when coming across at this is the type of the race. If it belongs to a higher level of class, meaning the horse you had selected would be competing with better horses which lower its chances of winning.
Also always see and check what odds the tab and bookies were offering and take which will give a better return.
Horses with true odds are usually very short in betting ring. If you can get better than 6/4 you are very lucky. But then there are plenty of true 3/1 or 2/1 chances or even worse than is offered in 6/4. Usually bettors get the short odds because they feel more comfortable knowing lots of money have gone on that horse.
So now we have chosen the horse with a decent jockey and a good trainer that is showing a good form. The horse you have selected would have a good run and hopefully would bring the buck for you with a good finish. Go to the horse racing and bet the horse with a good record.
