The Daily Telegraph has traditionally been distributed in its pre-printed 'newspaper' format via news agencies throughout Australia. These distribution points have since expanded to include general grocery stores and large supermarket chains. With the growth of the Internet, the Daily Telegraph Form Guide section has expanded its distribution network to include on-line access via the SuperRacing.com.au website, allowing punters to access the printed version through their computer or tablet screen seven days a week. Punters can also access racing articles, form and tips in an on-line format through the website.
The Daily Telegraph ('the Tele') racing team boasts some of the most respected and talented journalists of their type in the country. The NSW paper covers all aspects of news relating to the three codes of racing in addition to regular news articles that preview and review daily race meetings. A best bets article is produced daily for each NSW race meeting. The article reviews each race on the card highlighting the best bets, value bets, jockeys and trainers to watch, and the best exotic bet. The article provides a narrative which supports recommended selections, quoting comments from trainers, jockeys and connections.
The Daily Telegraph is one of the pioneers of the modern racing form guide format. Having undertaken multiple face-lifts over the years, the guide still remains one of the most recognisable betting information sources in Australia. The Tele form includes an abbreviated form-indicator format where specific letters are added to the end of each runner's name to indicate key form statistics that punters generally seek. Examples include:
Each race listing shows runners in saddle-cloth order with key details outlined including 5 characters before the horse's name which represent the runner's finishing position in their last 5 starts. The character representing each run is interpreted as follows:
While this abbreviated format provides punters with a good snapshot of each horse's form, it can mask comparative strengths and weaknesses of some runners in the race. For example, a horse may finish worse than sixth in its last three runs, which may turn a punter away from taking a closer look at its form. However the actual distance finished behind the leader may be close enough to rate as a good run. These apparent 'poor runs' might also represent improvement as the horse gets fitter and as they get out to a more suitable distance.
The Daily Telegraph employ one of the largest team of racing journalists and form analysts in the country. The newspaper also utilises it's affiliations with large wagering operators like TAB Corp to further increase it's scope of coverage across all three codes of racing.
