Newmarket System is for handicaps only and involves form figures.
What we are looking for is a horse that hasn't won its last three races
but finished second in at least one of them. It is best to wait until a
horse has run at least three times before giving it consideration and
allow up to six races in the form figures.
Usually, the more noughts there are in the form figures, the longer
the starting price of the horse will be, particularly if nought was the
most recent figure.
reason we are looking for a second in the form figures is because horses
that have managed to finish second are, in general, triers. Some
examples of form figures to look for.
Example: 3 runs combination: 200 020 222
Example: 4 runs
combination: 2000 0020 2202
Example: 5 runs combination: 20000 02020
Example: 6 runs combination: 202000 022020 202020
The selection method is very simple but very effective, and a whole
meeting can be assessed in a couple of minutes. After you have found the
correct form figures, check to see if your horse is in the betting
forecast in a morning paper. If not, discard it.
If it is in the betting forecast, check to see if it is tipped by at
least one of the newspaper tipsters. If it is not, check to see if it
has (sf) after its name, meaning strongly fancied.
If the horse does not satisfy these criteria, discard it and go into the
next race. This system often produces selections at good prices, any
selection over 5/1 should be backed each way.
This runner qualifies for at least one system in our historical betting systems books and full details of all books it meet the requirements for can be found in the members area.
