Form Profiling 2021: Community Project

Last May, when there was no racing and the flat season had yet to begin, I wrote a post about form profiling which you can read here. In it, I shared five horses which had displayed a specific pattern of conditions to most of their wins: a profile if you will.

I then outlined how to undertake this profiling activity using the tools on geegeez.co.uk at that time, Full Form and Query Tool. Since then, we've added the brilliant Profiler which, as the name suggests, is perfectly positioned to support an activity like this.

So, how did that first stab go? Remarkably, to me at least, the squad of 40+ horses we collectively identified made a profit by blind backing them at SP from the resumption on June 1st to the end of 2020.

Buoyed by that performance, which was to some degree predicated on a 40/1 winner (caveat emptor, as ever) - and which could have been significantly improved upon with either BOG or exchange prices - and prompted by a reminder from a reader who especially enjoyed following 'our' team last year (thanks Graham!), I thought we should do it all over again.

Horse Profiles 2021

STOP PRESS 6th April 2021: Horse Profiles 2021 is now complete and available from this link >>>

So here's what I have in mind:

  1. Have a quick (re-)read of the form profiling article from last year, here >
  2. Watch the short video below where I show you how to use Profiler and QT in concert (requires a Gold sub, though some profiling can be done in "races of the day" for free subscribers)
  3. Choose a horse (ideally not the winner) from the table of big race results below, and/or identify horses of your own choosing
  4. Submit your horse profile(s) in the form at this link >>
  5. That's it!

I'm really excited to see what you/we come up with this season.

To that end, I'll look to produce the report around the 6th April, so all submissions need to be made before then, please, for inclusion. [Of course, anyone can do this at any time for their own enjoyment/advantage, and/or can share additional profiles in the comments below]
