The Festival Method
You must only use the Racing Post for this method. No other paper will do. If you follow the rules closely you will end up with one selection sometimes two. Mark down all the horses that are running who have consistent form, horses that have finished in the first three in each of their last three races. The horses in question must have these form figures to qualify. Next you have to eliminate horses to get down to one horse. Eliminate all horses that are not rated in the topspeed ratings. These can be found underneath each race. There is usually a maximum of three. Next you eliminate all horses that are not forecast favourite by the Racing Post. If you are left with one horse then this is the days selection. If you are left with one horse then this is the days selection. If you are left with more than one horse then the selection should be the horse quoted at the shortest price in the Racing Post forecast. If two horses or more are quoted at the same price then all horses are to be backed. If, when you have eliminated all the horses that are not forecast favourite, you end up with no horses left, you move on to the next rule. Obviously with not having a selection from the first rule then this rule must be brought into operation.
All the horses that qualified through topspeed ratings will requalify. Next eliminate all horses who are not quoted second favourite in the Racing Post forecast. Once again if you are left with one horse then this is the selection. If you are left with two or more selections then there is no bet for that day. If no horse qualifies under both rules then there is no bet for that day. What you are backing is a horse who has shown consistent form and returned good times. So the horse when running against others must have a first rate chance.
