How Does Form Ratings Work?

We provide our members with unique ratings to help them pinpoint good value selections.

Every day we provide horse racing form ratings for every UK and Irish race so our members can get a good idea of each horse’s chances of winning a race, at a glance. This is presented in our daily racecards as in the image on the left.

Our racecards are the result of decades of data combined with some computer wizardry and the end result is a powerful rating system which places the right information at your fingertips when it comes to placing bets.

There’s hundreds of ways to choose which horse to bet on, and every man and his dog has an opinion. That’s why we put together the most important factors, giving you an easy-to-understand summary of each horse’s rating and allowing you to make your own informed decision.

You can use Form Ratings however you want.

• You might want to dig deep into this data, and look at every single element in detail.

• Or you might want to just simply evaluate the numbers at a glance.

Either way, you’ll be gaining good insight which will help you make better informed selections.


Identifying the Value Bet

By the time your form ratings racecard makes its way to you in the morning, most of the hard work is already done.

Our Form Ratings algorithm takes hundreds of different factors into account including things like:

• Jockey
• Track
• Distance
• Races won,
• Races placed,
• Races lost,
• How many lengths the horse won/lost by
• And loads more (If I were to list them all we’d literally be here all week)!

Each of these factors form our ratings for the day, so each morning you’ll get our ‘Pick of the Day’ – the horses that we believe are the best value bets.

Of course, you’ll be armed with all the information you need to make your own informed choice.

One of the things we’ve learnt over the years is that not everyone bets in the same way, and our form ratings allow you to make better choices, regardless of what your strategy is. Whether you’re:

Backing top rated horses in handicaps. Back top rated horses with good speed ratings in shorter races. Lay betting horses at short prices that have a low rating…

…Form Ratings will help you do it.
