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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
