wumpus answers:

You'd need to look at previous form, on particular types of ground.
Then compare this against the ground type on the day.

Then look at the previous history of the riders, plus any handicaps they might be carrying.

You could also look at the odds being offered at the bookies.
Lower odds means that "those in the know" believe that horse is going to do well.

Or you could just offer a big bribe to certain riders, or nobble certain horses....
