What is the A/E Statistic?

Anyone who has used or even looked at our Ratings will know that we love data and statistics and in this blog post we are going to discuss the A/E Statistic. If we were looking at just one statistic we can present an additional 5 statistics associated with that statistic. Yep we love it.

So let’s get back to it, what is the A/E statistic? How is it calculated? And what does it tell us?

A/E stands for Actual over Expected.

Now anyone from a statistics background will be familiar with the term Expected but not quite in the same way we use it […]

Who is Nick Bradley?

Nick Bradley is a bloodstock agent and syndicate manager for Nick Bradley Racing who we at RatingTheRaces are delighted to now be in partnership with. Nick Bradley and his team have had some fantastic success already in his relatively short time of business under his own name and had even more success when with Middleham Park Racing.

Nick has purchased the likes of G Force (Group 1 winner), Penitent (6 time Listed and Group winner), Commissioned (Royal Ascot winner) and Beckford (Group 2 winner) and they had 2 great runs from Little Kim and Raising Sand at Royal Ascot this year.

The talents of James Doyle based on the ProStats

2018-04-24T15:07:28+01:00April 24th, 2018|

How good is James Doyle?

James Doyle has started the 2018 season in great style and has already won the Easter Classic at Lingfield and the Lincoln Handicap at Doncaster. Both were for William Haggas and both were TOP RATED on our ratings (incidentally both also led home a straight forecast for the ratings!)

James Doyle is rightly receiving all the plaudits and his stats are very impressive especially when riding TOP RATED on our ratings (All these stats can be found using the ProStats tool)

James has a very promising 36.57% strike rate when riding TOP RATED however this doesn’t mean a […]

The Best 5 Courses for our Ratings by ROI

2018-01-08T23:18:15+00:00January 8th, 2018|

The Best 5 Courses for our ratings by ROI

Part 3 of the Series!

Today we will focus on best course for the Ratings by ROI, and just like last time we can slice and dice this data using our ProStats feature, just for fun.

In case you missed it, we have already explored the best courses by Strike Rate and the best courses by Profit & Loss.

One interesting thing to note is that we end up with 12 different courses sharing these top 5 course blogs, so it certainly is not the same courses each time!

Best by ROI

A self-explanatory table, showing the top 5 courses […]

How could you be over 90 points in profit in September?

2017-12-08T12:09:35+00:00September 26th, 2017|

Very simple! Using our ratings and one very easy filter!

It is always interesting to see members of ours make profit and how they go about it. There are various methods out there some focusing on types or races, some focusing on distances, some using our ratings to filter out their own statistically weak selections. But it can be much simpler than that.

With the simple filter of RatingTheRaces Top Rated (RTR1) and price >= 10.0 XSP (exchange starting price.) So far this month it has produced 92.49 points profit to level stakes. I know there are a fair few members out there following this system. It’s great they are having […]

What will give you the edge at Royal Ascot?

2017-07-15T11:59:18+01:00June 19th, 2017|

Our Ratings! Shameful plug, we know, but read on, it will be well worth it! Our Ratings have a great record at Ascot, with a 39.09% ROI to Exchange Starting Prices! Check out the Graph! We are confident they can help you at Royal Ascot this week! Obviously Ascot has National Hunt Racing as well as flat racing, so let’s filter it by type. So now we have Top Rated at Ascot by Type! In flat racing we therefore have made over 150 points profit backing TOP RATED blind to BFSP with a very tidy 46.28% ROI! But what about the going?! The forecast […]

Analysis of the 4 days of Cheltenham Festival 2017

2017-07-15T11:59:33+01:00March 21st, 2017|

Tricky Cheltenham Festival but still profit! So Cheltenham festival is all done and dusted, did it live up to the hype? Probably not quite as much as previous years in terms of quality with lots of runners withdrawn due to injury. Let’s hope at least some of these make it to either Aintree or Punchestown. Did we make a profit at the Festival?

Absolutely. A total of 9.36 points to BFSP with a 33.43% ROI, and this is just top rated. We are not talking about our ante-post bets in this blogpost. That will be for a future blogpost. One winner can change it all! After three days we thought we might have a disaster […]

How to go from a complete novice to professional bettor in just over a year!

2017-07-15T11:59:47+01:00November 30th, 2016|

The RatingTheRaces NAP Competition is now over a year old and we decided to contact and interview the All-Time Leader Charles Crayford to find out his secrets, methods and how he is using the ratings to help be a successful bettor.

Charles came across very well and had a lot of enthusiasm for the ratings and said: “I love your website and ratings!” £4556.77 Without giving away all your secrets and methods, can you give us one pointer that you look for when picking out your selections and why you think this is important? “For me, the first thing I look for is value. If I can get […]

Dan Skelton Analysis – RatingTheRaces Race Placement Service

2017-07-15T11:59:51+01:00October 24th, 2016|

We asked Aaron the lead Horse Racing Data Analyst at RatingTheRaces what he thought of objective data for race placement:

“Horse racing is one of those sports with a lot of variables contributing the outcome of a race, so many variables that many people overlook the use of statistics and objective data analysis to help them with their decision making. We (ratingtheraces) can clearly and objectively see the trainers and owners who are making best placement decisions and unsurprising to us, those seem to align with who is taking the most prize money home with them at the end of the day. I think the example given here is […]
