Race and Final Conclusion

In this section, I explain how to best view Greyhound Predictor Software and discuss the general probabilities involved when betting on dog races.

The Race

Greyhound Predictor v2.0 lets you pre-study future races in the comfort of your home.

As soon as the GP v2.0 Track 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 speeds of the dogs in metres or yards per second or miles or kilometres per hour and the distances travelled.

Press Spacebar to start the hare running once the traps open the RACE PREDICTOR will continuely up-date each dog's current race position.

Press Spacebar to pause the action This feature lets you stop the race at any time in order to examine the future possibility of any crowding, bumping or baulking occuring anywhere around the circuit. Please note: By repressing the Spacebar the race continues from the exact moment it was paused and that all winning times and race predictions are not affected by pausing then re-starting a race.

The Official Result shows the winners time, fastest sectional time, race length, track condition and the dog's final finishing positions!

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 v2.0 allows you to re-run the race with all the 'stats' saved for you and alter quickly any data needing to be changed. I suggest, each race set-up be run several times in order to gain the necessary insight required to make a winning prediction!

The Science of Greyhound Racing Prediction - Final Conclusion

It is with immense gratitude to my own family and friends, and to the many people who in the past shared their greyhound knowledge with me, that I now express my own original ideas and general observations in attempting to fully comprehend the complexities involved when studying dog race prediction.

Here at Greyhound Predictor we're often asked as to the accuracy of the Predictor? However, since each 'player' will have their own independent strike rate of winners, no win ratios or win percentages are stated. Although in fairness, I should explain the general probabilities when betting on races:

Predicting winners theoretically will always be easier in 'six dog racing nations' such as United Kingdom, Irish and European racing where the probability is 1 in 6 compared to 'eight dog racing' as seen in Asia, Australia, New Zealand and North & South America, where the probability is 1 in 8.

Predicting forecasts (F/C) 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 tricasts (T/C) in six runner races has a probability of 1 in 120 (6 x 5 x 4) compared to 1 in 336 (8 x 7 x 6) in 8 dog trifecta bets.

Predicting superfecta bets (SPR) in America or First Four (FF) in correct order in Australia and New Zealand has a probability of 1 in 1680 (8 x 7 x 6 x 5) and is only operational at tracks with 8 dog tote pool races.

All "Punters" will appreciate that these 'underlying probabilities' always exist when betting on greyhounds.

Since it's generally thought a greyhound's fastest time is the most important form statistic, I therefore suggest you focus your attention on this time-data, as overall the accuracy of the PREDICTOR will almost certainly depend on the relative accuracy of the information entered!

Greyhound Predictor really is "The tipping tool with a difference!"
