Analyse Different Sets Of Ratings
You are not just confined to analysing one set of marks but five,
which are, horse, jockey, trainer, sire and combined ratings. Ratings
can be analyse in a number of ways to make a system which you can then
First way could be to select 'top rated', this then only includes
horses which were top rated in the sire ratings on the day. If we now
place a value of 90 in the minimum box and 95 in the maximum the system
will then only include the top rated provided it had a rating of at
least 90 and no more than 95.
You don't have
to select a top or bottom rated and by doing this all horses between 90
and 95 will be included in the system. Like wise the user may select 2nd
bottom rated and then enter a minimum and maximum values and only this
type of horse is used.
It would be possible to take this a stage further and use the horse
ratings but remember the top horse is always rated 100 unlike the other
ratings which can vary.
Profile Ratings are our way of showing how well they have done in
different race conditions. In each race a jockey, trainer and sire has
profile rating for the different categories and these are only relevant
to that event.
A jockey that has a profile rating of five in the first race at
Newmarket will not necessarily be rated five in the next. This is
because in the first race all other jockeys are rated below him\her and
in the second he\she is racing against a higher class of jockey.
This process is applied to trainers, jockeys and sires in all categories
and gives an idea of whether they are up to this class of race. Now we
know this we can make use of the profile ratings when analysing.
So it is now possible to look for, and use, only jockeys that are
excellent at the course. To do this we would need to go to the
'Profile Ratings Tab' and then select the 'Jockey Tab' and make sure
there is just a tick in the excellent box in the group marked
Analyse Different Ratings Profiles
Now when we run the analyse it will only include jockeys that were rated
excellent at the racecourse were the race is taking place, all others
are ignored. You can use the same process for any of the profile ratings
but you must have at least one selected.
If any jockey, trainer or sire does not have a rating in that group then
it is ignored and not used. The reason they might not have a rating will
be either limited data, or none at all and you can decide what to do if
this happens by making changes on the settings tab
