In this section, I explain how to best view our Greyhound Predictor Software and discuss the general probabilities of race prediction.
Greyhound Predictor Version 2.0 lets you pre-study 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' of the dogs in metres or yards per second or miles or kilometres per hour and distances travelled!
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' to examine the possibility of any future crowding, bumping or baulking occuring at any time around the circuit. Please note: By repressing The Spacebar the race continues from the exact moment in time it was paused. Note also that all winning times and predictions are not affected by pausing then re-starting a race.
The Official Result will show 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 again with all the 'stats' saved for you, and alter quickly any data needing to be changed! Each race set-up I suggest, should be run several times to gain the necessary insight required to make a successful prediction!
It is with immense gratitude to my own family and friends, and the many people who have shared their greyhound knowledge with me, that I'm now able to express my own ideas and general observations in attempting to fully comprehend the complexities involved when studying 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 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' as seen in Asia, Australia, 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 it's generally thought that a greyhound's fastest time is the most important form statistic, I suggest you focus your attention on this racetime-data, as overall the accuracy of the PREDICTOR will almost certainly depend on the relative accuracy of the information entered!
