The Bettors Edge market tracking app is a must have for all New Zealand punters who are serious about turning their risk into reward.
How many times have you heard the commentator say “number five has shortened on track from 7’s into 4’s” only to watch the five storm home a good 3 lengths clear of the field? This is no coincidence; runners shorten from their original quote for a reason.
It takes a reasonably large bet to cause a significant move in the fixed price market and they don’t happen at random. ‘Shortening’ runners win a significant percentage of races for one reason: people who can afford to place bets big enough to move the fixed market are generally not in the habit of throwing away money. There are significant factors influencing the ability of that runner to win the race; factors most average punters will have no clue about.
Accordingly, when runners shorten on the fixed market, it’s a reflection of where the ‘smart’ money is going. The TAB offers a 'win mover' service on their website, however they base their stats on the tote price movements. Tote movements do not reflect the movement of the market accurately. The figures can be easily manipulated by a single person placing a small bet on a particular runner when there is a low volume of money in the pool and more often than not, will be a poor guide as to what runners have shortened and what runners have drifted.
The TAB does not make information about final field market movements available to the public and after using this application, you’ll see why.
