This system is very easy to operate and the top 2 rated horses in handicap races can be found very quickly. You can back just the top rated horse win or back both horses to win. You could also back any horse priced 6/1 and above each-way to avoid losing runs.
The first thing to do is take the top third of the horses in any handicap race. For example a race with nine runners you deal with the top three runners, with twelve runners the top four horses, with three runners the top horse only.
The next thing you must do is rate these horses using the last two form figures and this is how each horse is rated-
40 points for a first
25 points for a second
20 points for a third
10 points for a fourth
20 points for a distance winner
10 points for a course winner
So if a horse has won its last two races and has also won over the course and distance it would be rated 110 points. We will now take an example –
In a 12-runner race we concentrate on the top 3 runners in the weights, which are Zamil, Stardust Lill and Winter Boy
Zamil had won over the distance so is awarded 20 points
Stardust Lill came 2nd and 3rd in its last two races and also won over the distance so is awarded 65 points
Winter boy came fourth in one of its last two races and is a previous winner over the course so is awarded 20 points
As you can see we have a clear winner in Stardust Lill with 65 points and the other two horses have the same rating.
If two horses have the same rating we take the horse nearest the top of the handicap. We now have two top rated horses.
You can back just the top rated horse win or back both horses to win. You could also back any horse priced 6/1 and above each-way to avoid losing runs.
