Horse Racing Betting Angles: Part 2, Query Tool Intro

In Part 1 of this three-part series looking at horse racing betting angles, I talked about research principles: about knowing what works for you, about the importance of logic and a lot more besides. It's a foundation piece for the next two parts and, if you've not read it yet, I'd strongly encourage you to do that first. Here's the link: Horse Racing Betting Angles Part 1

Parts two and three are video-based for now, though I will endeavour to get transcripts at some point. The middle piece, then, is below, and it provides an introduction to Query Tool, Geegeez Gold's main research module. It can be used to drill down on courses, horses, trainers, jockeys, sires, damsires, and plenty of other things besides.

In this video, you'll discover what Query Tool (QT) is, where it lives, and how it works. You'll see how to visualise your analysis, display qualifiers and, best of all, save your research so that it is recalled when relevant, i.e. when there are qualifiers in the day's racing. Click the play button to watch Part 2.

In Part 3, which you can look at here, we'll look at some examples of angle research, produced with Query Tool. Each example is one element of a group of entities which can be researched. As such, there is ample opportunity for curious readers/listeners to try things out for themselves. Look out for that in the next couple of days.

    Hi Matt, Thanks for the walkthrough video. I’ve played with the Query Tool a little but you’ve inspired me to get into it properly and find some angles. Looking forward to part III

    Strangely enough I was watching this video at the beginning of the week Matt and QT really is
    an excellent piece of kit which I will adapt to my own requirements for the onset of racing whenever
    that may be.

    Perhaps it would be helpful to users if you changed the font or tab colour of the unknown parameters such as odds and pace score.

      Good idea, Chris. I want to update the light blue on QT anyway, to match the site colour scheme.

    I enjoyed that, Matt.
    I believe the Generate report and reset should be changed over.
    Working down putting parameters in, to then go back to the top to generate it doesn’t feel right.
    Are you planning on releasing any of your profitable angles to gold members in the future. 🙂

      Hi Ian

      I’ll be sharing approaches.

      Forgive me, but I don’t want to spoon feed, I want to show people how to feed themselves, as it were.

      So the approaches will be usable in a standalone way, but more than that I hope they inspire people to research their own angles.

      Best
      Matt

    excellent tool Matt but would it be possible to have a facility to add your results against any angles you are using so you can see instantly if this is a successful angle for you over a given period of time. Unless this already exists? JP

      We’re working on providing results since ‘save’ date, JP. Definitely a very useful addition.

      Best,

    Hi Matt

    Very enjoyable as usual Matt, don’t mind the waffle, it makes more sticky in the brain. LOL
    Anyway is it possible to have a description/comment box for said Query because if you filter said Query with the likes (A/E 1.00 with minimum 10 runs etc.) it kind of hard to remember.

    Thanks for the entertainment look forward to next episode

      Hi Mr Force

      Glad you enjoyed the video.

      Yes, it is possible to do that. Firstly, when you’re in QT, you can use the ‘Filters’ tab to see exactly what you’ve selected.
      Secondly, when you see a QT Angle ‘blue number’ on your racecard, if you hover over the description it will display the variables within the angle.

      It’s quite hard to explain, but there is an example on pages 130 and 131 of the User Guide:

      Part 3 coming soon!
