Betting System Rules – Horse Racing Tipsbetting systems get a bad press because there is so much junk being peddled. Methods that promisesubstantial wins but in real life they are just rubbish.Systems marketers and creators fall into three main categories.1. Scammers: Harsh words but I think justified. These are people who have no affinity with horse racingsystems but they have realised that there are a lot of raving fans who would like to make money fromthe horses.They spend all of their time writing the sales letter that will suck in the unsuspecting punter.They know that however poor the method is that only a tiny number will ask for a refund.2. Idiots: These are people who have stumbled across what they believe is a winning method but in factit turns out to be just some coincedental wins.These fools dont realise the problems caused by making a system fit the data available. The fact is thatgiven any set of data the diligent person can find a set of rules that could be applied to that data thatwill find enough winners to make a winning system.Predicting the past is always easier than predicting the future.
3. The Minority: There are of course people who know about researching data, who realise that a trendfound in one set of data needs to be re tested on another unique set of data before it can be consideredsafe. If you are to buy a betting method then these are the people you should be following.Heres my step by step plan for creating a workable horse racing method1. look at lots of old data to locate an indicator of winners. Something that looks to be common to a lotof winners that could maybe become the basis of a system.2. Hone that idea by adding known sensible filters, things like days since last run (recent runs indicatethat the horse is likely to fit), course and /or distance winners (have proven they can win in that racetype) etc.If you have a filter that says the horse must have run between 1 to 4 days ago or 10 to 20 days ago (IEbut not 5 to 9) then you are just making your method fit the data.3. And this is the crucial step. Test your finished method on raw data. This is how you know you are onto something worthwhile. But if you then adjust it a bit so it looks good on both sets of data then youare back-fitting again.The Betting School website is your main resource for all things related to UK betting.
