Most winners of horse races are animals that have the soundest form credentials. That may seem a rather obvious thing to say - until you have to decide precisely what that elusive quality actually is. Many a fortune has been lost trying to decide!

The idea behind this kind of program is to reduce that judgement factor to a minimum. By simply feeding in the required information on previous form the programs will take care of the comparative characteristics and cough up a numerical rating for each animal, with the likely winner clearly shown. That's the theory, anyway. Let's take a look at the practice.

Course winner works from a database containing details of horses, jockeys and trainers. Since this can never be complete, it shows how you can update and change it according to your own needs - very useful if you choose to specialise in certain kinds of races. It will also calculate the true odds on each animal, and then automatically display a potential individual profit factor This is an invaluable aid if you are to be sure of being on to a Good Thing in terms of value. Winners are not difficult to find, after alt - but overall profits are. This single factor goes a long way towards avoiding taking unfair prices on hot favourites, the bane of the average punter's life.

For each entered form factor (which extends to the horses' past three outings) it is also possible to isolate all other factors using a ‘bias' key , so determining where - if any - the top rated may be at its weakest. All in all, it is a professional approach to the problem.

“Yes," f hear you say, “but does it work?” Well, if you mean does it pick winners the answer is an unreserved “yes." But if you are asking does it pick all- or even a majority - of the winners the answer must be an equally unreserved “not on your life, mate!”

What the program can do is to narrow the odds in your favour rather than in the bookie's, and there lies its chief value to the serious punter, In practical terms, it's just as important to know which horse won't  win the race as the one which will - and there's a lot more to choose from toot The running of the program plus a little basic know-how of the sport is the answer here, as with most things. The final selection should always be your own rather than the computer's, though the program will happily oblige in this respect if you insist - sometimes very accurately.

Coursewinner offers a sophisticated approach to form evaluation, it is also endlessly adaptable to your own needs. Not infrequently it pinpointed selections significantly ahead in the ratings yet well down the betting forecast, and so at excellent odds in terms of getting value for money.


Working the magic

If you want to approach the matter a little more seriously than the annual couple of quid in the Grand National, it's as well to consider precisely how a professional might use this kind of aid. Firstly, it is very useful in determining which horses are unlikely to win. Those with ratings well outside the top three rarely produce winners — at least they haven't in the time I've been using the program. In a small field (say a maximum of eight runners) this can often reduce the real chances to no more than two or three animals. Statistically, this factor alone puts the odds very much in your favour.

 Coupled with the fact that 50% of winners come from the first two in the betting forecast, you have only to wait until such time that the program's top ratings match the two shortest priced horses in the forecast before deciding where your money is going.

Which one of the top two or three do you go for, you ask? Well, that's sometimes quite literally the $64,000 question, but since you have to invest in one of the daily racing papers for the kind of information needed by these programs, you could do worse than simply go for the better horse in the paper's own form ratings.

Odds won't tip in your favour with all races, of course, but nobody says you have to invest each time. Wait until such ratings do occur. As they say in the Unit Trust ads “profits can go down as well as up".

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
