Please ensure you are happy with the sample data and coverage provided before purchasing as refunds will not be given once a file has been requested. This free sample meeting is the template for our current coverage and includes a description of the data fields.
Files (in .xlsx format only) are available for immediate download. Once purchased, each file can be downloaded repeatedly by the same account holder, after each day's racing has been added, for example. This can be done either from this page or from the My Transactions page of your account. The current file is updated most weekdays, with meetings added usually within two working days of taking place.
At the end of each subscription period the current file becomes an archive and a new subscription becomes available.
Content & Current Coverage
The files offer times taken manually by Timeform analysts and are not those which are made available by commercial timing companies. We include all races for which we consider reliable timings can be compiled. This typically means the current subscriptions will cover
- every all-weather Flat meeting in Britain and Ireland.
- the majority of Flat turf meetings, though the configuration of certain courses means they are rarely, if ever, covered. In particular, coverage of Irish turf racing is limited.
Data is presented 'as is' and there is no guarantee, implied or otherwise, that any specific meeting has been (or will be) covered.
Please note the following timeline of changes to the coverage, reflected in the archive files.
- 01/15: Dundalk added.
- 03/15: selected turf races added.
- 11/15: sectional upgrades introduced.
- 10/16: Newcastle AW coverage added. Some meetings from earlier in the year were then added retrospectively.
- 11/16: 'Actual' race distances, reflecting rail movements, were added.
- 21/03/20-31/05/20: horse racing in Britain and Ireland was suspended.
