A very difficult task!!! The only way to profit is to use factors not necessarily popular with the betting public and that means concentrating on horses that have some negatives in their past performances.

class is always up to interpretation.

Not all levels are created equal.

Some cheap claimers come up hard and some are filled with slow plodders.

CLASS is tough to gauge.

How do you decide when the horse is 'right weighted' and in the 'right class

IMO...the best way to identify "underrated" horses is to look beyond their last two races when you are assessing their racing ability. Sometimes the last two races just throw you off...
