**NEW** Profiler Tab: Video Explainer

We've added a new tab to the racecards called PROFILER and, in this video, I explain what it is, what it does and how it works. It's an exciting new development that looks sure to throw up some great insights, especially in terms of trainer and sire angles.

Watch the video and then have a play with Profiler!

    Thanks Matt for explaining it and giving a clearer insight into how it could be used.

    I’m really thinking that this will come into its own in the NH season, specifically around the track configuration and conditions with particular horses and in NHF and novice events. Also going to give it a blast on the 2yo flat events, think there might be a real advantage above and beyond the obvious sire/distance/trainer data that tends to drive the price in those races.

    Knowledge is power, thanks for giving the power back to the average punter.

      A complete fluke because it was horse number 1, I assure you!

      Better to be lucky than good sometimes.

      Though it did have a line of green on place on Instant Expert, as a number of happy Gold subscribers have pointed out… 🙂

    Hi Matt, this looks really useful in many ways, to look behind the Form and tease out factors that may well have a bearing on the result, not necessarily apparent from usual Form presentation. However if you ever consider updating the Profiler may I suggest another piece of information to include would be the horses run style.I know we can see the last four run styles in the Pace tab and detailed Form Analysis but to see a line of how the horse runs on certain goings,distances and tracks would be useful,especially if the a particular run style results in win or place finishes. Just a thought. Theres always one right!! Regards David

    Hi Matt,
    A future useful upgrade for the excellent Profiler tool would be-if possible- the inclusion of a horses performance at different official ratings band levels. Any Chance?
    Re the cosmetic to the race card icons, would it be possible to put the first time headgear and wind op info in bold; would be easier to pick up
    Regards
    David

      Hi David

      I’ve played around with font weight and we will make the equipment data ‘pop’ a little more. So that’s a yes.

      On Profiler ratings bands, that’s less straightforward as it’s not a variable we currently hold in the database. Moreover, the bands would be arbitrary, whereas most of the parameters we currently use are standard racing variables. So I’ll politely decline this one, and suggest that the Class variable offers crudely the same thing, especially if/when the ‘HCAP’ option is checked in the top section.

      Best,
      Matt

    Hi Matt, this morning I finally got around to trying out the Profiler tab but it doesn’t seem to be working. I’ve tried several different races and the horse/ trainer/ jockey/ sire options but nothing happens when I click on the ‘+’ button.

    It looks a straight forward process in your video, here am I going wrong?

      Hi Tom

      It’s working fine, so will be a local issue. Please send us an email and we’ll try to work through it with you.
      As a start, I’d recommend clearing your browser cache. If that fails, drop us a line.

      Best,
      Matt

        Hi,

        The same thing happens for me. It was working fine the other day but now all the blue heading bars stay firmly closed! Is it because I am a free user, so no longer have access to the profiler on the free racecards of the day?

        Also, when I click on a trainer from the racecard it shows me the Race Entries for the future but Race Form is empty.

            Hi Sali

            Profiler is a Gold feature except on Races of the Day. There is currently an issue with it for those races, which we’ll resolve this week.

            Thanks for the reply Matt. I have emailed Chris some screenshots regarding the profiler tab and blank trainer race form. Good luck with fixing it!
