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 live in the South East of England and enjoy following the "Open Race Scene" here in the United Kingdom. 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 to predict your own race winners by using the Greyhound Predictor v2.0 Software Program 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 affords you the chance to interactively bet on the dogs. This combined with live race streaming, inter-track betting exchanges and the ever increasingly popular number of dog racing websites, never before have we experienced such a revolution in greyhound information and technology!

However, I firstly recommend you aquire a good 'informative newspaper' with full coverage of all today's meetings.

Greyhound Predictor Version 2.0 lets you predict middle-distance dog races run over 3 race lengths: 480 metres (525 yards), 500 metres (547 yards) and 515 metres (563 yards). Turn to the greyhound section and select a race close to any of these distances to obtain the best results!

If you haven't yet installed GP v2.0 then you can download a free trial. *The trial version is free to try before you buy! Please note: the full registered version will not display the start-up dialogue boxes or be limited to only one race per start up.

Now start up Greyhound Predictor, double click the Crystal Ball icon on your desktop. Once the 'Race Simulator' has loaded, Click I Agree to start the program running and press spacebar to move through the information screens.

From the Main Menu you may select Predictor, Betting Lounge, Gallery, Information or Options by using the Up/Down cursor keys situated on your keyboard. If you have any difficulties veiwing Greyhound Predictor v2.0, please see support page for further information.

By selecting the Option Menu you can alter the number of runners required and change any 'race length' into metres or yards or '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. Each time 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 it's not possible to enter the race data from internet websites unless of course you use two monitors!

Now are you ready to start predicting greyhound races?

From the Main Menu select Predictor to navigate throughout, simply highlight your answers by using the Left/Right cursor keys situated on your computer keyboard, when you have selected your answer press spacebar to continue.

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