Bet Selector Form Download News
PLEASE NOTE: Form downloads for Bet Selector were $55 a month from 2007 to
2021 but due to increased costs and inclusions increased to $65 a month from 1 April 2021.
Form downloads started out at $55 a month back in 2007. Due to CPI increases alone the monthly price should now be close to $75 and
that's ignoring the fact that the price was never increased when costs increased
due to the inclusion of new data (for example in 2013 when AAP 100 point ratings
and pre-post market prices were added) - taking these increases into account the price should now be
over $85 a month.
More recently (from early 2020) there have been significant resources
required to move the download service to the Bet Selector web site not to
mention (from mid 2020) the creation and maintenance of jockey
rating and class rating databases that are now integrated into the form downloads every day to ensure ratings are as up to
date and beneficial as can be.
In light of the above and a desire to keep prices on the low side, a $10 increase to
$65 a month was decided upon.

Form Download Payments
Form downloads for Bet Selector are due by the 28th of each month.
Some points on how this works can be found below:
- Payments are initialised by the user on our
Payment Page which has
a special form download option for the month in question. Payments are not
automated to repeat thus ensuring there is no chance you pay for something
you do not use.
assist in payment management, warnings occur on the form download dialogue in Bet
Selector once there are 10 days or less to go to the due date. Plus a Pay
Now button becomes available in the program that opens the payment page in
your web browser with your customer reference number already filled in.
- Payments must be made on or before the 28th of each month to ensure
continuity of access as payments made after the due date need to be manually
processed which could cause delays (note payments are no longer due at the
beginning of the month as was the case before 2020 but you can pay any time
you like between the 1st and 28th of the month).
- If you are paying for the first time, paying late or paying after more
than a months absence from using the service then you need to email us when
you pay as your access has to be set up manually in these circumstances.
- If you stop using the service then you will not need to pay for future
months in which you do not download any form.
Form Download Features
The real advantage of using form downloads is that Bet Selector can then access
both past and upcoming horse racing meetings for analysis and system testing. We
provide horse racing data for Australian, New Zealand, Hong Kong and
Just like a car needs petrol to run, the system testing features in our
program needs form to run but unlike petrol, the form downloads can be used more than
once and have many other benefits:
- Downloads are Inexpensive: Form
downloads cost less than $2.20 a day ($65 a month) and there
is no extra charge for downloading form to a second computer (so running
Bet Selector on a desktop and laptop is fine).
- Downloads are
Reusable: As form
builds up from month to month you can use Bet Selector
to test and research systems over past months (and you can keep
doing this even if you stop paying for horse racing data). You can even use it to
test our 189 free systems for both upcoming and past meetings.
- Downloads are Comprehensive: Our form downloads
have official 10 start form just like you'd expect to see in a detailed
newspaper form guide but with the added bonus that it is available for
all Australian meetings (plus NZ, HK and Singapore) every day of the week.
- Exclusive Data: Our form downloads include exclusive content for Bet Selector users
like early market (newspaper) prices, jockey ratings, 100 point ratings, foaling
dates, steward report comments and barrier trial results.
- Free Trial: If you are a first time user and would like to access form
downloads free of charge for a short period please email us.
