How would you define a good race? — Steven
I think this should cover it.
Two examples of simple "angles" that I like are these; "1 : the only entrant to win its last race ( combined with a few "complemenary " factors) ."2 : the only entrant to finish 2nd or "good" race ( again with qualifications). — William Zayonce
Interesting approach to spot plays.
I have a project on my agenda for the spring which is called Subset Handicapping.
It begins with a subset of horses and asks the question "What makes ________ horses win?"
These are precisely the sorts of insights and stats that I'd like to see . While a "naked" angle might not be productive in isolation but shows a 20% or better win% , results might improve with the addition of "complementary" factors.
Be aware that this will be a PRODUCT - as opposed to something free.
