Are there any ratings for today??

Hi Stuart, yes I am nothing if not fanatical about stats, and I keep complete records of just about everything. I will send them to you. Cheers

Nick

Hello there! I just want to congratulate you for your great work in moonhorse! I can see your passion and loyalty and i must tell you i admire it. Good work, keep going! And thank you for all your free stuff here!

Hi there, ive only just discovered these was wondering do you update your ratings with the results. Im intrigued to see how your results pan out. At the moment i only track the top rated clear by more then 18% from next horse.

Hi, thanks for your comment. I used to upload the results to the site, but that page was rarely looked at! I do keep records of the top three rated, and the results are consistent month on month. If you scroll down to the bottom of the Ratings page, you will see 3 links relating to the top 3 rated horses. Essentially, the top rated wins 25% of all races, and one of the top 3 wins 56% of all races. Obviously, you cannot blindly back the top rated and hope to profit. But, the ratings can be used as a guide to assist alongside whatever other methods you use. The ratings work best when there is known form, and your preference to follow the top rated if over 18% difference makes sense. I hope you find the ratings useful. Cheers. Nick

Thanks Nick, after I posted I found the links and checked it out. Very impressive im working out the best way to use them at the moment, really impressed and you have a new follower now.

Hi nick, just wondering how you come up with the % figure. And how much you weight course and distance parameters. And was also wondering if you sell copies of these ratings.

Hi nick looking forward to cheltenham how did your ratings do last year at the meeting? Ive been playing around with your top 3 rated at moment doing different permed groups and its paying off so far.

Hello again Nick,

I’ve notice that your ratings list now has an additional ( Gray ) column (TFR) to the far right. What is the significance of the Number listed and of the symbols ( p ? + x -x ) posted after a numerical figure ?

Kevin i am presuming these are time form ratings that Nick added to an already magnificent spread sheet. Hopefully he can include them regular.

Regards

Brian

Ah yes, I see it now.

Thank you Brian.

Hi.

April ratings???

Thanks ðŸ˜€

Hi Nick

Are you doing any ratings please,and your nap?

Cheers

Rob

Really enjoy your ratings especially all the extra info (from ATR and TF) inc. How you get it loaded into a spreadsheet is a bit of mystery. Are your ratings based on form performance? Do you have breakdown % of success between Hcs and N/Hcs and no of runners class etc.?

Have these stopped now?

Hi Nick

Are there any ratings for today please?

Hi Nick,

Have been downloading your ratings for a week or two now, but I’m still a tad confused as to what half of it means!

Don’t suppose you can give me some kind of guide or write up as to what it all means?

Sorry to ask a noob question I’m just trying to extract what I can from the ratings.

Thanks,

Ben

Hi Nick,

Any ratings today please?

Notice they have been few and far between while the weather has been rubbish, was hoping to be back in action today now there’s a few meetings and the snow is melting

Thanks

Ben

Have these stopped for good now?

Hi Nick,

2 Do you better results in certain races ie: Better class or grade, certain courses.

Once again thanks for the great info
