Bet Finder, a betting tool on geegeez

Introducing “Bet Finder”

As longer term readers/subscribers will know, we're constantly investing in improving geegeez.co.uk and, in particular, the toolkit that is Geegeez Gold. In the past year and a half, we've added a new metric (Percentage of Rivals Beaten), the Profiler tab in the cards, a more mobile friendly version of the entire site, new reports for 1st time headgear and sectional fast finishers, and a whole host of smaller changes.

Many of those changes were perhaps geared towards more dedicated or experienced bettors; mindful of that, we wanted to do something that would have broader appeal and, arguably, would be more accessible to our army of casual/time-pressed players. And so, I'd like to introduce you to Bet Finder, the sixth tool in the Geegeez Gold kit bag, and free to all registered users for the remainder of September.

To help you get up and running straight away, there is a video below where I put Bet Finder through its paces and, after that, some words and pictures about the new tool for those who prefer to read than to listen.

What exactly is Bet Finder?

Bet Finder is a tool that allows the quick filtering of the hundreds of horses entered each day down to a handful of interest to you. It is literally push button easy to use.

Consisting of two tabs - Filters and Qualifiers - we begin on the Filters view, which looks like this:

 

Above is the 'fully open' view, and users can hide or show all sections with the '+' and '-' buttons top left:

 

 

Clicking on any blue header block will open that specific section. Here I've opened the 'Basic Filters' section:

 

There are buttons top right for 'Today' and 'Tomorrow', and to 'Reset' the filters.

[Note that when looking at the 'Tomorrow' data, some ratings do not get published until the evening.]

 

Selecting a filter will highlight it and reduce the value in brackets  on the Qualifiers tab button - the number of qualifying horses satisfying the selected criteria.

 

In the example above, I've selected 'Beaten Favourite last time out' and 'Up in Class'. The Qualifiers tab tells me there are three horses matching those criteria.

Clicking the 'Qualifiers' button displays them:

 

The qualifier table can be sorted by any of the column headings, and clicking on the race time will take you to the race in question for further analysis if you're that way inclined.

There is a green 'CSV' button top right in the 'Qualifiers' view from which users may download the filtered list of qualifiers.

Beneath the Bet Finder tool itself is an explanation of what the filters are. Here, for example, are the explainers for 'Advanced Trainer Form Positive':

 

Where can I find the Bet Finder tool?

Bet Finder can be found from the Tools page here, or from the Tools menu anywhere on site.

 

Do I have access to Bet Finder?

If you want it, yes! From now until the end of September, Bet Finder is free to all registered users. From October onwards, it will move into the premium Geegeez Gold service.

If you're not already a registered subscriber, you can register here. If you are, and/or you're a Gold subscriber, just make sure you're logged in and go to the Bet Finder page.

 

I very much hope you'll find this new tool useful, and if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please do share them in the 'replies' space below.

And if you're enjoying some success with a particular combination of filters and are happy to share, please do!

Thanks, and Good Luck!

Matt

    First impressions, in it’s present guise, I’m not sure there is something in it for me but what cannot be denied is that there will be loads of big things in it for many and for that, praise is much deserved!

      Thanks Dave.

      I think that’s a very fair comment: as I always say, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to betting.
      That’s why we have tried to build different tools for different people with different approaches.

      And we’ll be sure to continue to do that!

      Hope all is well with you, and thanks for the comment.

    Thanks Matt, looks good. I like the ability to use RPR and TS alongside other filters.
    Is there a way to automatically incorporate pace angles into this? Eg, I’d love at certain tracks to have “potential/likely leader” as an option alongside some of these…

      Hi Craig

      It’s impossible to include pace, I’m afraid, because non-runners can change the dynamic markedly.

    Matt,
    Interesting tool and had a play with it yesterday and today, surprisingly found some winners ( betting shouldn’t be that simple!)
    Would it be possible to add in something along the lines of hot form (maybe 25% win and 33% place in the last 30 days) as a selection button?

    Keep up the good work.
    regards

    Tony

    I think it would be interesting to see how a hot form horse with a good Trainer and Jockey recent form combo would do as a mini system.

      Hi Tony

      It might be possible to add some Hot Form elements into Bet Finder. We’re thinking on Phase 3 now, so I’ll add it to the list.

    Hello Matt

    Would it be possible to add distance travelled from stable to course or even those travelling over a certain distance (maybe 250 or 300 miles)?

    Many thanks.

    Nigel

      Hi Nigel

      I’m afraid we don’t (currently) have distance travelled info in our database. So at this stage, it’s not possible, alas.
