Dynamic Form had
its beginnings back in February 2002. This was when David Begg developed an
interest in the analytical side of the Racing Industry and started researching
the Form from all three Racing Codes that were being either published in news
print or on the Internet.
While he was following
Form for the various Racing Codes, he found that a significant amount of Form
was incorrect and/or inconsistent. Examples of this with Thoroughbred Form
was the same Horse being shown as running at different venues on the same
day or a Horse not showing overseas Form. In 2005, with the knowledge gained
over the past three years, Begg decided to investigate building his own form
Web Site. He knew that it would take time to win over punters that were using
other form Web Sites to 'Dynamic Form', as being a punter he knew how sceptical
punters are of new ventures as there have been several come and go over the
past few years. Along with an investor and a software developer he formed
a company. This gave Dynamic Form a strong team and financial base which means
they don't have the financial pressures that normally accompany a new venture.
In June 2005 they began the construction
of their web site with a couple of key points in mind:
1. As a punter himself, he has zero patience when it comes to slow Web Sites
so this would be an issue they would always strive to avoid.
2. Also their Web Site would never be a 'Finished Product' but instead a
'Work in Progress' with their team always looking at ways to enhance and
expand their services.
They launched their site, dynamicform.com.au officially on the 17th of January 2006. They started with a 'Soft Launch'
via web forums both here and in New Zealand promoting free products and
hoping to draw suggestions from a very critical and experienced median on
the content and quality of their site. This proved extremely successful
and drew positive support and some good constructive suggestions.
Their web site on launch night
- Form for all three codes,
Thoroughbreds, Harness and Greyhound ('Dynamic Form' meaning the Form
is continually updated immediately after any changes become available,
right up until race start. These include changes such as Jockey, Barrier,
Track condition and Local weather conditions etc.)
- Form available in three formats
5, 10, and All Start, costing as little as 15c per race.
- Rather than displaying Form
in a single line separated by commas (comma delimited), their Form is
in an easy to read table with the option to turn some of the information
on or off.
- Live local weather conditions
for all tracks from the nearest weather station.
- SMS service for race updates
for meetings you have selected.
Dynamic Form is a very user orientated
company and to that end they will make any user suggested changes to their
Web Site if they think they will improve it's functionality for all concerned.
These changes are normally carried out in a matter of minutes/hours, something
their competitors can only dream of.
As part of their Web Site 'Work
in Progress' philosophy they have added 8 new services in the last 4 Months:
1. Free 6 Source Market Comparison
Service. The fastest and most reliable service of its type
2. Free 3 Start Form
3. Free Track Reports
4. Free E-Blackbook Service
5. Free Raceday Lists (i.e. Jockeys by Rides, Trainers by Runners, and Runners
6. Live Raceday Chat Room
7. Latest Racing Industry News
8. Sectional Times for most Metro Tracks (Electronic Only)
Dynamic Form is always looking
for new ways to serve the punter. Now just months since launch, growth has
far exceeded expectations and it appears that even the most sceptical punter
can't resist what they have to offer which is great for business.
More extensive form coverage is available for all three codes from just 15c
per race and access is easy.
So if you want detailed
form that is easy to read and also the fastest 6 Source Market Comparison
Service on the internet then 'Put the odds in your favour' with:
the tool the thinking punter needs!'
