Hey fellow horse racing fans, meet Rob!

Rob, a data whiz, just cracked the code to smarter betting with his Form Ratings system. Here's why it's a game-changer, even for beginners:

  • No need to be a horse racing expert: Rob understands that not everyone knows the ins and outs of the sport. That's why he created the Simple Six, a system that boils down complex data into six easy-to-understand numbers.
  • Data-driven decisions: Forget hunches! Form Ratings crunch hundreds of factors to give you a clear picture of each horse's performance. This means you can base your bets on facts, not just feelings.
  • Simple as Top Trumps: Remember comparing stats in that childhood card game? The Simple Six works the same way. Just compare the numbers to see which horse has the edge.
  • Super-easy to use: No need to be a math whiz either. The system is designed for anyone to navigate and understand the "story in the stats."
  • Automated strategies for the ultimate convenience: Want an even easier approach? Form Ratings offers pre-built, back-tested betting strategies you can access in seconds.

The Simple Six Breakdown:

  • LR (Last Run): How the horse performed in its most recent race.
  • 2LR (Second to Last Run): Shows more established form, ironing out flukes from the last race.
  • 3LR (Third from Last Run): Helps assess the saying "Form is temporary, class is permanent."
  • SPD (Speed): Identifies the speed demons and the slowpokes.
  • HRS (Horse Race Score): Shows a horse's past performance in similar races.
  • FRN (Form Ratings Number): The ultimate rating, combining over 30 factors into a single, powerful number.

Give Form Ratings a try and see the difference data-driven decisions can make in your horse racing bets!

You can also opt for their Best Last Time selection, which looks at the horses with the highest FRN, weighs them against their Last Race score, and chooses the first horse with an LR at least 25 points above the next best horse.

There's also the Ideally Suited Smart Selection, which highlights the top four highest-rated horses on today's card for their Horse Race Score. For a more refined selection process, Box Tickers takes the Four Tops selection one step further by only considering the top four FRN horses with the top ratings for Last Race, Speed, and Horse Race Score.

If you're more interested in speed, Fast Four takes into account the Top Four horses with the highest Speed Rating over all the day's race cards. And if you want to see which horses have the highest Last Run score, look at the Four Last Run Smart Selection.

A simple yet effective technique that many Form Raters have been using lately...

With it, you can narrow down the racecards and come up with some solid selections for the multi-bet types like Lucky 15, Patent, Lucky 31 etc.

Your selections must meet the following criteria:

  • Top Rated & Forecast of 3/1 or lower. ✔️
  • Horse is in good form (Has the highest FRN rating – our strongest 'overall' rating) ✔️
  • Horse has odds that reflect a decent chance of winning (don't back a drifter!) ✔️

This way, you get a shortlist of horses with a decent shot at winning, all in just a few seconds!

Now, the catch:

Your list might be a little long, and some of the odds might not seem amazing.  But that's okay! You can still use this method for other bet types like Patents or Trixies, which require fewer winning horses.

Basically, it's a quick way to find interesting picks for those exciting multi-bets!
