What makes the Best Horse Racing Ratings service?

2020-03-16T16:41:45+00:00July 22nd, 2019|

The 4 main areas to choose the Best Horse Racing Ratings service!

Seems like a strange or biased article for a Ratings service provider to publish right? But once upon a time we were ratings service customers, rather than a ratings provider. Our experiences completely shaped the way we run the RatingTheRaces service today. Below is a short list of things that frustrated us when we were customers of Ratings services and our rules, we subsequently hold ourselves to.


Seems obvious right? But so many services have a Top Rated, a Top Speed Rated, a Top Course Rated, a […]

RatingTheRaces Interview with Our Form Expert Liam!

2019-06-20T13:23:33+01:00June 20th, 2019|

RatingTheRaces Interview with Our Form Expert Liam!

RatingTheRaces: Royal Ascot has been good so far (going into day 3) with some big winners found. Can you tell us what made you pick The Grand Visir and Afaak?

Liam: Royal Ascot is going well, guaranteed a profit of 31 points is great and hopefully we can add to that today.

The Grand Visir, I’ve been a fan of for a little while now, ever since he won a handicap at Haydock over 2m. He finished really well that day under James Doyle for William Haggas and demonstrated to me that he was maybe even a pattern class horse.

After a few months […]

3 Out Of 4 Grand National’s predicted by a Statistical Algorithm!

3 Out Of 4 Grand National’s predicted by a Statistical Algorithm!

Not just any old algorithm, it was the RatingTheRaces ratings algorithm!!!

So how on earth does an algorithm, achieve this? Well, as many of you know statistics can be used to predict a lot of things, and in horse racing we can generate A LOT of statistics. Fun fact – did you know the human brain can only consider a maximum of 4 parameters. I know. Stunned. Me too. We all feel smarter than that, but apparently, we simply are not. However, whilst an algorithm does have limitations in terms of numbers of parameters, it is far, far greater […]

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 […]

How Trainers and Owners could and should be using our Ratings

2017-07-15T11:59:52+01:00October 19th, 2016|

As well as punters and professional gamblers using our ratings, we suggest that Trainers and Owners should also be using our ratings. We are in the position to be able to provide 5 day declarations to owners and trainers in ratings format.

This means Trainers and Owners can find out where their horses are rated and if they are multiple entered they can assess to find the race that is the weakest or suits them the most.

Today we have had a look at the Cheltenham card on Friday and Saturday and also the Aintree card for Sunday.

We shall start off with one of our National Hunt Horses to […]

After the Gurkha won the French 2000 Guineas the 3rd Group 1 came in the shape of […]

Future Champion Jockeys?

2017-07-15T11:59:56+01:00September 28th, 2016|

With the end of the Flat Season drawing ever closer, it looks more and more likely that Jim Crowley is going to take the Champion title away from Silvestre De Sousa and looking at our ratings he has taken his chances more than Silvestre.

Jim Crowley has won on 42 of his TOP RATED rides (109 in total) and won on 43 of his 2nd and 3rd rated rides (98 total). Silvestre has won on 30 of TOP RATED rides (99 in total) but only 30 of his 2nd and 3rd rated rides (148 total).

Looking ahead we have the NH season starting to get into gear and we have looked at […]
