We have divided the Winning Form guide into a three-part educational experience in order for you to pick your horse.

Watch these videos a few times if you need to, to become familiar with the wealth of information packed into the pages of this handy guide.

In these videos we will take you through the various steps you will need to go through to pick your horse.

The Race Header

You will find all sorts of useful information in the race header. This ranges from basics such as the name of the race, the distance it is set to be run over as well as the time it is set to start. 

Additionally, you can also find other useful details such as the course record, % of winners from a particular barrier draw, which exotic bets are available for the race and more! 

The Horse Header

The horse header is similar to the race header but focuses on a particular runner. Here you will find details such as the age and sex and colour of the horse along with the jockey, trainer, weights as well as the performance of the runner over the course and distance. 

The Formline

The formline consists of everything that you need to know to make your final decision. Remember, you’ll be able to see the horse’s latest run on the bottom line. Additional info includes when last the horse ran, the weight carried by the horse, its draw and so much more!
