--These are TOP/EARLY TOP/LATE PLAYS
*all you need to do to find the early/late horses---click early---hi-lite the top horse---then click late...if it's the SAME HORSE at a price that's acceptable to you....that's your play
--Click LATE BUTTON...and then look for any horse that led first call.
--TOP 4 ABILITY Click on 2.5L---sort by ABILITY--any horse in the TOP 4 @ 10-1 or better is a play. This is one of the most profitable plays provided you make a conditional bet @ 9-1 +. I've seen many of these @ 10-1 ML go off as near favorites.
The > means the horse was on the lead at the first call in the last race, is back in 16 days or less and did not win the last race.
The * indicates there is at least a 10 point gap between the best and second best SPEED BLAST numbers. When you see both symbols together *> on the same horse you have a play.
--The HIGH CLASS button.. they win a lot. I think they win near what % favorites win at...anytime you see a "price" on one of these, pay close attention
LONE POWER METHOD and works like this---click on 2.5L....then sort by POWER.
Look for a lone horse in his race near the top--with no others on the list.
--POWER GAP METHOD...Using Power Numbers only--what I do is click on Top-1 Power & Top-2 Power--then look for a big gap between top power and 2nd--at least 20 points. This might be the easiest "handicapping" method with PLATINUM--if you're a simulcast player look for a min 20 point gap and 3-1 odds
"DUCKS" GET THE SCRATCHES FIRST---then click the #1POWER. Any horse in double digit ML odds is your duck.
Click the #1 POWER....then sort those. Take the top half--If the card has 10 races, your top 5 are plays. If 9 races--then play the top-4....and so on.
Here's the SPEED PAR METHOD: the Bris speed showing in Pace View is, of course--the best of last two. I take the average of the top three, which in this 8th race @ ALB--we have a top-3 of 93--90--88. About a 90 AVG . My idea is to just eliminate any horse that hasn't come within 10 of that figure.
So any horse that doesn't show at least an 80 is out.
The SPEED BLAST button is there to alert you to a possible horse with
a speed-advantage. When you click the button, and a horse pops up---go to
that race and click SPEED BLAST. That will show you that horse on top.
Hi-Lite that horse...and click EARLY POWER, then LATE POWER.
Same horse in all 3? You may have a bet here. Useful in 5F and 5.5F races.
After TOP POWER---TOP PRIME, TOP EARLY, TOP LATE, then look at everything else.
