The Science of Greyhound Prediction by Guy Slade

It's not a Game? It's a Science!

Hello, welcome and thank you for visiting

I enjoy following the Open Racing held here in Great Britain & Ireland and am a keen collector of greyhound memorabilia, mainly old race programmes! I've also attended meetings in America and Australia.

In this article, I explain how to predict dog races using Greyhound Predictor Software and discuss the relevant formlines and statistics required to be entered into the Race Predictor Stat Screen.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions?

The Science of Greyhound Race Prediction - Introduction

Greyhound Racing in the 21st Century allows you to place bets on-line, combine this with RPGTV live race streaming, Betting Shop TV and the ever increasingly popular number of dog racing websites; never before have we experienced such a revolution in greyhound information and technology!

Although firstly, I recommend you acquire a good 'sporting newspaper' like the 'RACING POST' with full in-depth coverage of all today's dog meetings.

Greyhound Predictor version 2.0 lets you predict races run over three standard distances: 515 metres (563 yards), 500m (547y) and 480m (525y). After studying the form in your newspaper or researching on the internet, please choose a race you wish to predict!

If you haven't yet downloaded and installed Greyhound Predictor onto your computer then please click here to download a free trial.

Please note that the full registered version will not display the dialogue boxes or be limited to only one race per start up.

Now double click the Crystal Ball icon on your desktop. Click I Agree and Press Spacebar to move through the information screens.

Once the Main Menu has loaded you can select Predictor, Betting Lounge, Gallery, Information or the Option Menu by using the Up / Down cursor keys. If you have any difficulties viewing our Greyhound Racing Software, please see support page for further information.

By selecting the Option Menu you can alter the number of runners and change 'distances' into metres or yards, or 'weights' into kilos or pounds!

Alternatively, find the Configuration Utility on your computer (Start - Programs - Greyhound Predictor v2.0 Configuration) to preset your own 'race settings' mentioned above as the default mode of your choice. Each time a maximum of six or eight dogs will only then be saved for you!

As Greyhound Predictor v2.0 always runs in Full Screen Mode! You may require two seperate monitors when entering formlines from the internet.

Now are you ready to start predicting races?

Now select Predictor to navigate throughout simply highlight your answers by using the Left / Right Cursor Keys and Press the Spacebar to continue. You will be asked to answer ten race-form questions for each runner, although the first three questions only apply to individual race set-ups.

Please read on.
