So, going to the Perth races tomorrow. First time seeing horse racing live.

Suiting up, but really inexperienced. Essentially need some tips for the betting - the going is likely heavy.

Also, when you go to look at the horses close up, what are good signs? Is sweating good?

Not an effing clue. Flying by the seat of my pants.

Anybody follow horse racing? I'm off to Chester tomorrow and wondered if anyone had any tips...

Join Betfair as that is all the independent bookies use at the races. So at least if you do get a winner you will win more than you would betting with the on course bookmaker.

There's quite a decent draw bias in sprint races at Chester. In a 5f race stalls 1 & 2 can usually offer a big advantage, stalls 1-3 (1-4 in larger cards) offer a good advantage for a 6f race. Obviously it's horse dependant too, don't just blind back because of the stall numbers, but it's usually a good starting reference at Chester.
