In this last section, I explain how to best view our greyhound racing software and discuss the general probabilities of greyhound race prediction.
Greyhound Predictor Version 2.0 lets you watch, study and predict future dog races in the comfort of your home!
Once the GP v2.0 Racetrack has loaded, you can select the Display Mode by using the left / right cursor keys situated on your computer keypad. This 'special feature' shows the 'racing speeds' in metres or yards per second or miles or kilometres per hour and distances travelled by each dog!
Press Spacebar to start the hare running As the 'traps open' the RACE PREDICTOR will continuously up date each dog's position in a race!
Press Spacebar to pause the action This feature lets you 'stop the race' and examine the positions of the dogs anywhere around the circuit, in order to study the future possibility of any crowding, bumping or baulking occuring. Please note: By repressing the Spacebar the race continues from the exact moment it was paused. Note also that all winning racetimes or predictions are not affected by pausing then re-starting a race.
The Official Result shows the winners time, leading dogs sectional time, race length, track conditions and each dog's finishing position!
Select Photo by pressing the left / right cursor keys to see the actual photo finish as the first greyhound crosses the line.
Select Race Again Please note: *This game feature is only fully functionable in the full registered version
Registering Greyhound Predictor lets you re-run the race with all the 'stats' saved for you and alter quickly any data needing to be changed!
I suggest each Set-Up be run several times in order to best gain the necessary insight required to make a successful prediction!
It is with immence gratitude to my own family and friends, and to the many people who shared their greyhound knowledge with me, that I'm now able to express my own original ideas and observations in attempting to fully comprehend the complexities involved when studying dog race prediction.
People regularly ask as to the accuracy of Greyhound Predictor? However, since we believe that each 'Predictor' will have their own independent strike rate of winners, no win ratios or winning percentages are stated. Although, I should in all fairness explain the general probabilities involved:
Predicting winners theoretically will always be easier in 'six dog racing nations' such as UK, Irish and European racing where the probability is 1 in 6 compared to 'eight dog racing' seen in Asian, Australian, New Zealand, North and South America, where the probability is 1 in 8.
Predicting forecasts (f/c) or quinellas 1st and 2nd in six dog races has a probability of 1 in 30 (6 x 5) compared to 1 in 56 (8 x 7) in eight dog races.
Predicting straight tricast bets (t/c) in six runner races is 1 in 120 (6 x 5 x 4), compared to 8 dog trifectas where the probability is 1 in 336 (8 x 7 x 6).
Predicting superfecta bets - first four in order - is only operational in American 8 dog tote pool races and has a probability of 1 in 1680 (8 x 7 x 6 x 5).
All "Players" will appreciate that these 'underlying probabilities' always exist when betting on greyhounds.
Since a greyhound's fastest time is generally considered the most important form statistic, I suggest your attention is focused around this race-data, as overall the accuracy of the PREDICTOR will almost certainly depend on the relative accuracy of the information entered!
GP v2.0 Software allows you to study greyhound races in real-time and offers you the chance to predict your own winners!
