Kobe’s Horse Racing Tips

Betfair’s own Data Scientists have created a prediction model which produces ratings that you can use as Horse Racing Tips. for nearly every meeting in Australia.

The Kobe Model, named after their favourite athlete, is built using Punting Form data. This includes Sectional Time data, benchmark ratings, jockey strike rates and dozens of other features.

You can use these outputs to find value in the Betfair Exchange. Backing or laying selections that stand out.





How do the Ratings work?

Ratings are numerical measures that are an expected rating for each horse for the upcoming meeting to produce horse racing tips. Prices are formulated by multiple factors including past performance, upcoming race conditions, trainer and jockey statistics and a range of other variables considered by our Data Scientists.

NB: The Data Scientists’ best-profiled runner is highlighted in grey. The ‘Value’ % is calculated looking at the difference in win probability based on the Analysts rated price v current Exchange market price.

Ie. 20% win rated chance vs 12.5% win chance in the market is a 7.5% difference in winning chance. This is calculated by: (1 / model odds) – (1 / price).
