Derby Prep Pace Figures and PPs (04/23/14)

One of the best ways to learn how to read the Pace Figures is through a review of already run races. Since the results are known, you can look through each horse's Pace Figures to see if you can identify what patterns or indications might have given you a reason to back one of the top three finishers.

Additionally, having the Past Performances at your fingertips to review in tandem with the Pace Figures can give you an added sense of the sheer differences between traditional past performances (which are based on time, running position and lengths behind), and variant adjusted Pace Figures. This allows you to simply compare each horse by their Final Pace Figure, 4f Pace Figure and associated Form Cycle Pattern.

Below we have posted the Pace Figures and Past Performances for the six (US based) Kentucky Derby Prep Races worth 100 points each. These races are important because a top two finish in just one of these prep races ensures enough points for a horse to get ranked high enough in the 2014 Kentucky Derby Points Standings to lock in spot in the Derby starting gate..

Welcome to Predicteform Pace Figures, Form Cycle Patterns and Value Play picks will tell you if a horse is likely to improve or regress in its next start. Easily accessible from any computer, tablet or mobile device, services horse players of all types. Access to printing PDF's is also available.

How do I get started?
Visit the Learn tab on the navigation bar where you'll find the Legend and Pattern Guide. These two tools combined will give you the knowledge you need to use

The Legend helps to explain how best to read the Pace Figures. It clearly defines what every line, symbol and figure means.

The Pattern Guide highlights Form Cycle Patterns, a series of 12 symbols/abbreviations, each with its own definition. These patterns are the easiest and most effective way to evaluate what we can expect from a horse's future performance and expected form cycle.

Value Play Picks use the automated technology and process to evaluate every track and race as well as the team's analytical expertise, we can now rank every horse by its likelihood of winning the race and value (initially relative to morning line odds).
Value Play picks are included as part of all subscriptions and you can view now on the Free Race of the Day.

Blinker's Off - We have also published founder Cary Fotias' unabridged book on Form Cycle Analysis, available by chapter free to all who register.

Free Race of the Day – Every day, we will make available the Pace Figures and Value Play Picks for at least one race. Pace Figures are what subscribers, both in the Value Play Picks and the comprehensive "advanced" view, can see for every horse of every race at every track. Check out today's free race here.

Free Track of the Weekend - Each weekend (Fri. - Sun.), Predicteform will offer access to the Value Play Picks, Pace Figures and Form Cycle Patterns. Access to this data will provide new users an ability to follow along and learn how read, analyze and use the Predicteform technology.
