Live Now: Very Cool Gold Report Filters

The roll out of Phase 8 of the Gold content continues, albeit a bit slower than planned. Phase 8a included Peter May's very popular speed ratings, extra filters in Full Form Filters, a Race of the Day and Feature of the Day for non-Gold subscribers, and some small tweaks to Instant Expert.

And now in Phase 8b, we're introducing a range of powerful new report filters.

The reports in Geegeez Gold allow users to look deeply into the habits of trainers, jockeys, horses for courses, head to head records, and hot form; as well as a couple of profiling reports called The Shortlist and Best Of.

We've added filters to the following reports:

  • Hot Form
  • Horses For Courses
  • Head to Head
  • Trainer Statistics
  • Jockey Statistics
  • Trainer Jockey Combo Statistics

And we've also introduced a scoring system to The Shortlist. Let's take a closer look at the new filters, starting with the 'old' report layout and the main problem with it...

Here's the unfiltered version of today's Trainer Jockey Combo report. As you'll see, it's a loooong report.




But now we've added the following filter bar to the top of the reports listed:


As you can see, you can now sort by runs, wins, places, win or place percentage, and win or each way profit/loss.

The first time you use these, you'll want to set them up. (Or maybe you won't, but let's assume you do!) Just choose the filters you're interested in and the settings for each.

I'm going to filter the Trainer Jockey Combo report by Runs (10+), Win% (20+) and Win PL (10+) and I'm going to look at the Course Form 2009+ view. From an unfiltered list of 134 trainer/jockey combinations, my refined list now has just five lines on it, each of which represents a partnership that has been profitable to follow in the past:


Your first 30 days for just £1

This 'juice' can now be sorted as required, and clicking on a row reveals that pairing's entries today. Here, I've sorted by Win P/L and clicked on all five returned profit duos:



Once you've chosen some filters, those settings are stored in each report. So if you're happy with the settings, each time you log in, you'll just get the shortlist you want. Pretty cool, eh?

Oh, and in case you're not yet using this report, here's an interesting line from yesterday's top profit pairing:



Now 25/1 winners are not everyday occurrences, but this kind of powerful insight does mean that Geegeez Gold subscribers needn't fear backing one at a price when the stats look interesting.


The other reports listed at the top of this post have similar filters, so you'll get the idea of how to use those from what you've already read. But one where we've employed a slightly different tack is The Shortlist. By its nature, this is normally a fairly short report anyway, but sometimes on busier racing days it can get quite extensive.

So we've introduce a scoring system, as follows:

GREY = 0
RED = -1

Thus a horse can appear on the report with a score between 9 and 15, with 15 being all green. Here's an example of why you really should be looking at this report, this time from Saturday's racing:


Now, again, this wouldn't be a typical day. There are more qualifiers than normal for one thing. And we wouldn't always expect the report to flag winners at 16/1, 7/1 and 6/1. But it does do that with pleasing frequency.

In my opinion, this is one of a handful of pages that time-starved Gold subscribers should check every day. It provides a perfect snapshot of those best suited by conditions each day.

The other places I'd recommend those short on time check in are Stat of the Day, a daily tip which has been hugely profitable in each year to date (since 2011), and Double Dutch, which is completing 365 days of service today and has notched 63 points profit in that time. That profit haul was helped by a fat 44.5/1 double on Saturday, and it should be noted that Double Dutch is a free service available to all geegeez users.

So that's all for Phase 8b. As always, it's just live meaning things might go a bit 'quirky'. If they do, please drop me a line and I'll get it investigated.

Phase 8c, which is almost ready, will allow users to set up email alerts for their tracked horses, trainers and jockeys - either overnight, or at the five day stage. And Phase 8d, with you before November is out, will have more customization option in your My Geegeez area.

We continue to be committed to re-investing in Gold to make it a tool that can challenge some of the major computer form books, and I'm confident that our approach - intuitive, user-focused design - will reap rewards for all users, regardless of time or experience.

If you're not already a Gold subscriber, you can take a 10 day unlimited access trial, by clicking here.


And finally today, I'm going to run a webinar (or two) to showcase Geegeez Gold and dig down into what it can do. This will be suitable to all levels of user, and I'll start with the basics and how to get the most out of Gold depending on your experience level and/or time availability.

To make that as tailored to viewer's needs as possible, I want your questions and requests. So, if you have a query, or you want me to show you how I use a particular thing, just leave a comment and ask.

For instance, do you know how to use the pace tab? What things do I look for most on the Instant Expert? Which reports have the most interesting (and profitable) data? And how do I get to it? Where is the tipping content housed? How best does one use the speed ratings? And so on...

I'll try to incorporate as many as possible into an hour long 'show'.

I hope you like the latest Gold innovations. Have a play around and let us know what you think!

Matt (and his clever team of techie people)

    Bloody hell Matt, just playing around with the trainer/jockey combo tool using your parameters and of the six horses that popped up for today…Some Plan (5s), Definitely Better (10/11), Pacify (16s) and Anastazia (10s), all won. Speechless!

    Hi Matt. looks great. On my pc the filter bar does not display as a bar but vertically above the table. Also the runs button appears to be split with the second box appearing at the bottom next to the update button. I have course form 2009 highlighted but when I press update it just refreshes the entire table not filtering anything out.

    Is it me?

      Hi Hugh

      I was trying to upgrade something and wasn’t expecting it to produce public errors!

      Should be all fine now, I’ll look to see why those errors appeared, and attempt the upgrade at a quieter time.

      Hi celine5

      I’ll do a video in a couple of days. Am poorly at the moment – very sore throat among other things – so will spare you the Barry White voice over between now and then!


      ps are you clicking the update button? (I assume you are but just want to check)

      It obviously won’t be like that every day, but it did pull out a 25/1 winner for the most profitable TJ combo yesterday, and is always worth a second look.

      I’m really frustrated as it was a toss up between the horse I chose and Pacify (won 16/1) for today’s Stat of the Day. 🙁

    Hi Matt,

    I have to admit I don’t really know what to look for in the pace filter and would appreciate you including that in your webinar. Last night I was watching a race on Bet365 and just before the off they mentioned one of the horses as liking a fast pace. I flicked over to the geegeez race card and the pace analysis showed that horse as having the highest score (just over 14) but what is the minimum score for a horse to be considered ‘pacey’?

    Hi Matt
    I am really interested in watching the video. As you will be putting it on youtube means I can catch up watching it I hope? I live in Australia so that would make it available to me. Will you be sending an email to let us all know when you debut as a film star. Lol looking forward to it.

    Just signed up for Gold and all seems to be working well on my I Pad.
    I put in the same filters as you and it has thrown up two selections today,is this correct?
    I just want to make sure I am using it correctly.

      Correct Andy, and thanks for confirming that all works fine on your Apple kit.

    Just a couple of things Matt. Firstly, at the moment on The Shortlist placed horses are not available; re iPad, race cards come up but none of the report selectors are available, Shortlist down to Trainer/Jockey combo. If any other GGers have info on this…..

      Hi Arthur,

      I assume these are both iPad issues? I’m not seeing either of them on desktop (PC, Chrome/IE/Firefox).
      Which browser are you using? We don’t actually have an Apple test setup, so are a little in the dark on that score, I’m afraid. That said, we’d be keen to resolve any iKit issues we can, so do keep reporting them.

      Hi Ron

      Please check there are no 0’s in the filters. If you can see a ‘From 0 To 0’ filter, that’s the problem. It may be inadvertently defaulted to that.

    Hi Matt, just a quick question….when looking at the traffic light instant expert section I keep finding greens indicating wins but cant find any wins in the horse form. This seems to happen when looking at tomorrows racing. An example is at Wolverhampton tommorow in the 15.40
    where Nightlight shows three wins for class and going in the instant expert but nothing in the horses form ie 322. Any ideas why this is happening as it rather cocks up doing research the night before.
    Regards Simon

      Chris Worrall says:


      You must have the Instant Expert set to places instead of wins. So the 3 places are the 322 you see in the form.
      There’s a couple of radio buttons on the left hand side enabling you to switch IE from wins to places and vice versa.

    Hi Matt, Re the video that you are going to do everybody will have something or other that they are not sure about so I think that if you spend a few minutes going through each of the categories in the way that you use them this will be all we need to understand the value of the gold membership.

      Thanks Brian – I’ll be happy to do that, though I do need to try to keep to an ‘acceptable’ recording length! If there’s anything specific you’re interested in, please let me know.

      Thanks again,
