The Science of Greyhound Race Prediction by Guy Slade

It's not a Game? It's a Science!

Hello, welcome and thank you for visiting

I enjoy following the 'Open Racing' held here in Great Britain & Ireland and have over the years become a keen collector of greyhound memorabilia, mainly old race programmes! I've also attended meetings in America and Australia.

In this article, I explain how to predict dog races using the Greyhound Predictor v2.0 Software Program and discuss the various formlines and statistics required to be entered into the Race Predictor Stat Screen.

Any questions about The Science of Greyhound Race Prediction? Please feel free to contact me.

The Science of Greyhound Race Prediction - Introduction

Greyhound Racing in the 21st Century allows interactive betting. Combine this with Sky TV coverage and RPGTV live race streaming and the ever increasingly popular number of dog racing websites; never before have we experienced such a revolution in greyhound information and technology!

Although, I firstly recommend you acquire a good 'sporting paper' like the "RACING POST" with full in-depth coverage of all today's dog meetings.

Greyhound Predictor Version 2.0 lets you predict races run over three standard-distances: 515 metres (563 yards), 500m (547y) and 480m (525y). Once you have studied the greyhound form in your newspaper or have browsed the internet, please select a race you wish to predict!

If you haven't yet downloaded and installed Greyhound Predictor then please click here to download a free trial.

Please note: The full registered version does not display the dialogue boxes or be limited to only one race per start up.

Now double click the Crystal Ball icon on your desktop. Click I Agree and Press Spacebar to move through the information screens.

As soon as the Main Menu has loaded you may select Predictor, Betting Lounge, Gallery, Information or Options by using the Up/Down cursor keys. If you have any difficulties veiwing Greyhound Predictor Software, please see support page for further information.

Select the Option Menu to alter the number of runners required or to change 'distances' into metres or yards, or 'weights' into kilos or pounds!

Alternatively, by finding the Configuration Utility on your computer (Start - Programs - Greyhound Predictor v2.0 - Configuration) you can preset your own 'race settings' mentioned above as the default mode of your choice. Each time you start-up Greyhound Predictor v2.0 a maximum of six, seven or eight dog races will only then be saved for you.

Our Greyhound Software always runs in Full Screen Mode! To enter race data from other internet websites you may need to use two monitors.

Now are you ready to start predicting greyhound races?

Now select Predictor to navigate throughout simply highlight your answers by using the Left/Right cursor keys and Press Spacebar to continue.

GP v2.0 requires you to answer ten form questions for each runner, although the first three questions always apply to individual race set-ups.

Please read on.
