Horse Racing Handicapping – Essential Factors
Connoisseurs know that handicapping is one of the most intimidating aspects of horse racing wagering. This is where science meets Lady Luck’s domain and because the variables involved in horse racing are indeed a lot more numerous than those linked to other sports, proper horse racing handicapping can indeed be a rather daunting undertaking.
To make a long story short, let’s take a look at some of the most important handicapping factors.
The ability of the trainer is obviously an important and in the same time easy to keep track of factor.
The ability of the jockey – yet another important element indeed.
The ability of the horse – this one’s a no-brainer.
The current form of the horse – this is where advanced handicapping skills are called upon.
Miscellaneous other factors.
The par times, ability times, power- and pace ratings of the horse should receive extra scrutiny here.
The current form of the horse is one of the trickier aspects to handicap. Knowing a horse well enough to know its condition cycle is something usually only the best of the best can get right. In this respect, layoffs are extremely important as they offer pretty much the only stable point one can latch onto.
