Punting For(u)m Launched!
The team at Punting Form are very excited to have released our
new forum. Head over and check it out now.
We are kicking off with two boards: One for general Punting Form
and racing discussion and the other for exclusive discussion of all
things System related.
Our Systems Builder has been stimulating a fair bit of
discussion on other racing sites so hopefully we can transfer some
of that chat back here. The forum will also be the spot for
requesting new filter and criteria additions as well as for
advertising the merits of your own public systems.

System Builder Update
The maximum number of system hits that can be returned in the
System Builder has been extended from 5000 to 10000.
This has been a heavily requested feature from our system users
and as always we continue to do our best to meet any reasonable
We are looking forward to seeing even more successful public
systems as a result of this update.
Wednesday System Results
Wednesday system results and stats have not been published and
systems have not been updated with yesterday's runners. This
is due to a delay in receiving the official results for a couple of
All stats and systems will reflect yesterday's runners after the
Systems Notifications Policy Change
There have been certain situations where system hit
notifications have not matched the results reported in system
history. This has occurred with system hits being sent out
but not reflected in results and also with runners appearing in
system history without having ever been sent out as a
The cause of these discrepancies are criteria that can
change from when the system hits are identified to when the race is
actually run. The primary criteria affecting many of our most
popular systems is Starting Price. Obviously the actual
starting prices for a race are not available until the jump so we
have used a Pre Post Price up to this point to determine hits.
If a system has a Starting Price constraint of less than $5
and the Pre Post Price is $6 the runner would not be a hit.
If that runner then actually starts at $4 and wins it will
appear in the history of the system and subscribers have been left
wondering why they didn't get the notification.
System integrity is huge priority for us so we are working
hard to fix this kind of issue. We are changing policy to
notify subscribers of all system runners regardless of Starting
Price (if Starting Price is a criteria). Notifications of
these type of hits will include a note which states the Starting
Price required for that runner to be considered a hit.
In the near future we will be introducing similar policy
to deal with late jockey changes, track condition changes and other
similar variable criteria.
System of the Week - 10/02
The week has been a great week for Punting Form systems with
several systems yeilding large returns for punters. Last
week's controversial System of the Week winner Gold Rush has spawned a
worthy successor in Gold
Rush 2. Showing massive returns for the last month the long
term viability of the Gold
Rush systems is unknown. For members willing to take the
punt Gold Rush 2 provide
a massive 67 selection for the week and found 14 winners for a
profit of $27. It will be very interesting to see in
Tylendale can keep it going next week.
Expert system creator Formulator has delivered with The Randwick Stables.
Four winners from 14 selections returned a profit of $28.
These winners included two big priced returns Saturday with
Va Pensiero paying
$14 and Grey
Countess at Eagle Farm returning $18.
Also worth of mention is pie2251's jockey system based around Alex Hearn. Hearn was on
fire picking out west picking up 3 winners from 10 selections
including two double figure payers.
Odds Comparison Tool Update
We have recently released a major update to our popular Odds Comparison
Improvements in speed and refresh time make our Odds Tool the
fastest and most informative available for Australian Racing.
We have also added real time race status and a results feed.
You will always know exactly when a race has jumped, when a
race is paying or whether or not there is a protest. The Odds Tool also
identifies the winner and place getters of every race displaying
the best win and place price available at the time of the jump.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be adding some new
bookmakers and allowing members to specify which bookmakers they
want to see, both in the Odds Tool and for the embedded odds in
the Form Guide. We
will also be releasing our fluctuations data with notifications of
major moves in the markets...
