The Science of Greyhound Racing 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 Race Dog Scene" here in the South East of England. I'm a keen collector of dog racing memorabilia, mainly old race programmes! and have previously attended meetings in Ireland, the USA and Australia.

In this article, I explain how the Greyhound Predictor v2.0 Software Program lets you predict dog races run in real-time and discuss the various formlines and statistics required to be entered into the 'Race Predictor Stat Screen'.

The Science of Greyhound Racing Prediction - Introduction

Greyhound Racing in the 21st Century allows you to bet on the dogs interactively. Combine this with RPGTV live race streaming, inter-track tote exchanges and the ever increasingly popular number of dog racing websites; never before have we experienced such a revolution in greyhound information and technology!

Although, I first recommend you aquire a good informative 'sporting newspaper' like the "RACING POST" with full in-depth coverage of all today's meetings!

Greyhound Predictor Version 2.0 lets you predict dog races over 3 standard-distances: 480 metres (525 yards), 500m (547 yards) and 515 metres (563 yards). Turn to the greyhound section and select a race to predict!

If you haven't yet downloaded and installed Greyhound Predictor then please click here to download a free trial. Please note: the full registered version does not display the dialogue boxes or be limited to only one race per start up.

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

Once the Dog Racing Software has loaded you may from the Main Menu select Predictor, Betting Lounge, Gallery, Information or Options by using the Up / Down cursor keys. If you have any difficulties veiwing Greyhound Predictor v2.0, please see support page for more information.

You may alter the number of runners required by selecting the Option Menu and change 'race lengths' into metres or yards or 'dog weights' into kilos or pounds!

Alternatively, by finding the Configuration Utility on your computer (Start - Programs - Greyhound Predictor v2.0 - Configuration) you can preset your own 'race settings' mentioned above as the default mode of your choice. Both six or eight dog races run in metres or yards, kilos or pounds will only then be saved for you!

Greyhound Predictor Software always runs in Full Screen Mode, therefore to enter race data from other internet websites you may have to use two monitors!

Now are you ready to start predicting greyhound races?

Now select Predictor to navigate throughout simply highlight your answers by using the Left / Right cursor keys and Press Spacebar to continue.

GP v2.0 requires 10 greyhound form questions to be answered for each runner, although the first 3 questions always relate to individual race set-ups!
