In this section, I explain how to best view Greyhound Predictor Software and discuss the general probabilities involved in greyhound 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 the distances travelled!
Press Spacebar to start the hare running As soon as the 'traps open' the RACE PREDICTOR will continuously up-date each dog's race position!
Press Spacebar to pause the action This feature allows you to '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 predictions are not affected by pausing then re-starting a race!
The Official Result will show the winning time, fastest sectional time, race length, track conditions and final finishing positions!
Select Photo by pressing the left / right cursor keys you can 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 not only lets you re-run the race with all the 'stats' saved for you, but alter quickly any data needing to be changed! Each race set-up I sugest, should be run several times in order 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 over the years 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.
We are often asked as to the accuracy of Greyhound Predictor? However, since each 'Predictor' will have their own independent strike rate of winners, no win ratios or win percentages are stated. Although, I should in fairness explain the general probabilities involved 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) or exacta's 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 has a probability of 1 in 120 (6 x 5 x 4), compared to 8 dog trifectas where it's 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 a greyhound's fastest time is the most important form statistic, then I suggest your attention is focused on this race-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!"
