Going Changes, Jockey Changes and Non-Runners
All information in Racecards can be edited including the Going. Jockey changes can be made quickly and non-runners are easily removed (Non-Runners are removed automatically when connected to Betfair).


Visual Form-Book's Systems Setup allows you to set up BACK and LAY systems. A comprehensive setup allows complex systems to be created which rely on particular race conditions and runner criteria. Simpler systems like 'to follow' lists to highlight particular Owner, Trainer, Jockey or Sire's horses when they run can also be set up.

Ranking Operators for Ratings and Efficiency (orange titles) include Best, 2nd Best+, 3rd Best+ etc., 2nd Best-, 3rd Best- etc., Worst, 2nd Worst-, 3rd Worst- etc., 2nd Worst+ 3rd Worst+ etc. 'Best by ##' and 'Worst by ##' are also available. Ranking operators are also available for SPs(Starting Prices), Draw, Class, Age, Weight, Trainer strike-rates and Jockey strike-rates.

Must Have options allow systems with specific form criteria to be set up (Eg: 'Must have been beaten no more than ## lengths and 'Ran on' in race of a similar Distance, Going and Class within the last 35 days'). Distances beaten can be set absolute or relative to Race Distance. Distance, Going and Class can also be set absolute or relative.

Visual Form-Book's Systems Analyser tests your systems on past races and breaks down the results by a multitude of conditions, detailing Wins, Runs, Win Strike-Rates (W%), Win Level Stakes-Profits (WLSP), Win Profits on Exposure (WPOE), Average Winner SPs (AvWSP), Average Loser SPs (AvLSP), Significance (Sig), Placeds, Placed Strike-Rates (P%), Placed Level-Stakes Profits (PLSP) and Placed Profit on Exposure (PPOE)...
