Betting on horse racing is exciting and easy. Analysing form for horses can be as simple or as complex as you like and normally depends on the level of investment planned!
CITIbet to help you find as many winners as possible, so we have devised a list of some of the key factors punters should be aware of before placing a bet on horse racing.
Here are just a few:
Undoubtedly, a young horse at short distances has a better chance than his aged brother. But if you are a fan of long-distance races, then experience plays a major role.
Length of Races
Before making a bet, you need to know how long the race will be and whether the horse had a break before it. If this is a sprint (short run), then the horse needs to rest for at least a month, but if it is a long distance, then a long break is unnecessary, or more precisely, it is undesirable.
Some horses like racing close to the rails, while others prefer room to move out wider on the track. A perfect horse will have the combination of both of these traits and will be able to go under and around horses as required, but most will either be one or the other.
The average weight of a jockey is 60 kilograms. But novice athletes are allowed to exceed this limit in order to improve the balance with the horse. So it becomes clear that the lighter the jockey, the more experienced he is and the more chances he has to win.
Weather, as with other outdoor sports, can produce unexpected results when the favorites fall short of the outsiders. Therefore, before making a bet, it is necessary to clarify the weather conditions at the racetrack.
