The Edge Report Explained
My Mindset When Writing
I wanted to make sure my readers understand my mindset when I am writing The Edge Report and what I am trying to accomplish for the readers of it. I have had some feed back on Twitter about being ambiguous in my writing. When I write, what you read is what I think. It is my honest thoughts on a race and how I see it or the most likely scenario I think will play out. Horse racing is never a sure thing so when handicapping I will consider various ways that a race can go and different angles to look at. Many times there are multiple horses who I can make a case for to win a race so I will describe how I see it and how things could play out. I am writing from the viewpoint that the reader has already handicapped the race and is using The Edge Report as another resource to help them gain an advantage. As I have said before my priority is not telling you what to bet or how to bet. With that said I have tried to make a better effort in giving pretty clear ideas on what my pick 4 will look like and whether I see an opportunity for a tri or superfecta play. For readers that just want to read the report and make some bets I am trying to be clear enough so it’s possible for you to make some pretty good decisions on doing that.
When I write about a race I will usually talk about the horses in order of preference of putting the them on a pick 4 ticket. The horse I talk about first is the one I like best to win. The horse I talk about second is the one I give the second best chance to win and so on. There are times when I mention another horse that is in the race but if it’s one that I am not using or do not like for some reason I say it.
If there is a horse that is a contender according to the morning line and I have reason not to use the horse or have thoughts on how he may not run to his odds I will try to describe that. Conversely if there is a horse that I think can out run his morning line odds I will write about that a well. My thought is if you can find horses who will outperform what the betting public thinks then there will be opportunities to hit some bigger exotic tickets. I will usually put those comments at the end of my analysis for each race.
The Edge Report is for you, the reader. I need feedback to make it better so if there are things you see that I can improve on let me know. If there are things that you would like to see in the report that are not there let me know. You can leave comments on Twitter or in the comment section of the report. If the report helps you connect on a big score let me know. The more information I have on how The Edge Report is being used and helping others be successful the better I can write it and help all of us cash more wining tickets. After all, that is what we are here to do.
