Australian Horse Racing



The Edge

We all want to be competitive in everything we do. And no more so that with punting on horse racing.

Success in punting on horses, in fact most things reduces down to an information war - the people with the best information make the smart moves.

Books have been and still are the best source of general information, and this applies at least as much in the art of racehorse selection and staking as in any other field.

Author Paul Segar has produced textbooks which cover all aspects of punting. The books alone stand as a complete reference but also provide 'food for thought'. You can develop / improve your own ideas as well as learn some new techniques.

Each book is written in plain English with plenty of practical examples in each chapter. Browse the contents of each book or email for further information, if required.

You Know the Drill


Class ratings have been used in horse racing for many years, it's nothing new.

Why create something new?

The value is still there in win and place bettting, not as great as before in the multiples but value can still be found.

Ratings point to clear cut winners in many events and are a useful starting point in others.

At the other end of the scale, that poorly handicapped runner is quickly highlighted with figures in black and white.

The Ratings Calculator program uses base ratings for various classes and from these, past ratings are calculated. Use these ratings or your own if you want, adjusted for weight, barrier, jockey and any other factors to automatically calculate a completely flexible market.

Produce your own market (any percentage and market-type) or simply follow the finish order and prices as automatically calculated. You don't need to do another thing if you just want to follow the system.

  • All starts for every runner
