Predictive ratings appear as part of our pre-race premium ratings service and are shown italicised in brackets. They are an attempt to anticipate the first-time out performance of a two-year-old (or a three-year-old up to the date of the Newmarket July Sales) and are on the same level as the established performance ratings they are comparable against. More than 15 pedigree and non-pedigree variables involved in the calculation of the ratings.
Uses early positional figures (as noted by Timeform’s race analysts) from all of the horses’ recent records to establish the likely pace of a race.
A factual description of how a horse ran in the race, e.g. 'held up, stayed on before last, led close home, found plenty'.
In-Play Hints categories
"General hints" take in-play price data from the course in question, identifying significant examples of predictability or unpredictability over a sizeable length of time and large number of cases.
"Pace forecast hints" use early positional figures (as noted by Timeform’s race reporters) from the horses’ recent records to establish the likely pace of a race.
"Specific pace hints" identify individual horses that may be suited or unsuited by the forecast pace scenario.
"Individual price hints" identify horses that have a recent record of trading low in-play and losing, or trading high in-play and winning.
"Short-priced hints" identify horses forecast as likely to go off at low odds (in the context of the field size) and display pertinent price and run-style information about their recent efforts.
