I play the races intensely for a while and then burn out so I need to take a rest. Since many tracks have meets and then close, this method works pretty well. I plan my campaign for the first two weeks that the races are being run after a track opens. Allowing a few weeks before I start gives me time to see how the track will play and how the jockeys will fare. Then I start to play. When the track finally reaches the end of the meet, I'm ready for a rest.During those weeks that the meet is in full swing and I'm playing the races, I follow every race and constantly monitor the results watching for track biases and mini trends. Rather than playing many tracks as some players now do, I try to focus on just one or two and really micro manage the wagers I make and a campaign based on several good plays.
For instance, if I know that two year olds usually win on the front end from the rail, I plan on handicapping every two year old race and looking for that scenario. I also have a win average or strike rate that I plan on so I also know what odds I'll need in order to make a bet worthwhile. I guess at how many actual wagers I'll place during the meet. Putting it all together helps me to have an idea of what I might make, but it can all go pear shaped and I know that so I don't know if I'll make a profit or lose money until the meet is over.

Following a good reins man when he gets off Copu Our Bets Review one horse to drive another is one very good way to handicap the races, but just because one horse is chosen above another, it doesn't necessarily mean that the horse left behind isn't capable of winning. There can be other factors involved. For instance, if a driver has an arrangement with a trainer that he'll drive all the horses harnessed by that conditioner, he may get off a perfectly good pacer or trotter to pilot the horse of that conditioner.There are also rare instances of a horse and human just not getting along well. If a horse turned in a poor performance that seemed out of character for that horse, it may be that the driver just isn't able to get the horse to go like it should and another pilot may have better luck. Another factor, of course, is the post position. If a driver has a choice between two horses that appear about evenly matched, but one is in a poor post position, the choice is obvious.Finally, in rare instances when a driver has to choose between two horses, it may be that he knows one of them is about to be claimed out of the race and he'll lose future drives on the other horse if he doesn't stay aboard. In that case he may even stay with a horse that is second best, but offers better promise for the future.Looking at the final speed figures of the runners in a race can help you to find the fastest horse, but it isn't always as clear cut as it appears. There are dangers in relying on speed figures alone. In order to make allowances for the factors that might affect the speed figure for any one race, many handicappers will use an average of the last 3 races at the distance and on the same surface.
