Did a few final tweaks to EXOTIC ...mainly the COMPREHENSIVE REPORT.
There were too many horses appearing on the list--so tightened it up a little, to have fewer horses, but better qualified. It's purpose is to give the user a look at horses that rank highly in the "important" categories.
Pace View users will know these categories quite well:
These apply to all distances and levels.
So I did some research and was able to assign a "value" to each horse---the TOP horses in COMPREHENSIVE VALUE appear on the list.
-Some things to know about this TIP SHEET which contains the comp report:
All horses in each race are evaluated--any horses that have a large gap to #2 in this "value" report...are shown on the VALUE PLAY list. Many times there aren't any---sometimes three or four (rarely)
What's interesting is that, when there has been just one horse on the Value Play list--SO FAR they are showing a profit--without any further handicapping.
The HOT LIST you already know about--that's not a selection list, but a list of horses that have passed a basic mechanical handicapping screen.
Tom Aislie would have loved this.
The comp report can be very useful ...concentrate on horses showing a "1" anywhere in the 4 categories. These horses are tops in at least one category.
Funny thing is--the horses that top two, three, or all four categories...are NOT LOCKS TO WIN. Take a look at the ML--there is a reason it's listed immediately following. A horse with several 1's--and is the ML FAVORITE--is obvious to everyone--and a good chance this horse is coming off a big effort. They do win--about as often as the favorite--because in all likelihood be--be favorites.
They are ONLY good for exotics--you'll lose your a$$ betting these to win.
So here's a method for using this report ---maintain a decent strike rate--and if careful and demanding--show a profit.
#1 Any horse on the Comp Report showing a "1" in any of the 4 categories--is to be considered "live"
See....if the ML maker --using whatever method he uses--makes this horse less than 3-1 ML--say 7/5....it's no mystery to anyone--and obviously this horse has done something recently to impress the ML maker. (I hope I'm making myself clear--I'm trying )
So...any horse 3-1 or better--showing a 1 in any of the 4 categories is a potential win bet. This way you don't get caught in the "sucker bet" trap of betting even money horses who may have fired their best shot already.
#3- Any horse 10-1+ showing a 1...jump on it. He wouldn't have made the list if he had no chance--the "1" just makes it a more palatable bet IMO.
Here are the TIP SHEETS from Sunday 01/16 @ GGX and TUP...so you can see what you're looking at in the beginning:
This view is after "handicapping" or screening of qualifiers. The actual bettable selections are in red boxes---they're 3-1+ and showing the "1" we need to see.
The horses in black boxes are the short-prices--appearing dominant with their 1's a-plenty.
Incidentally...this report shows all races, unlike platinum- due to lack of pace info--doesn't rate races shorter than 5F.
That $48.00 winner--was a quarter horse. -He made the comp report--then qualified as a prime longshot bet since he was @ 12-1 ML..and showed a 1.
The lone value play also won.
I think most will really like this program. As you can see--like all my other software programs--they're based on fundamental handicapping for "regular handicappers" who want to win, but still enjoy the races and have some fun.
Remember--this is just one method. Play around-do a little research and you'll find many more
Also--there is much more to the program besides this report--you have contenders for all 9 races--handicapped 4 basic ways. I'll show a screen shot next See Above 👆
