Our horse racing (RaceHorseFormBuilder) is an application that takes results data files and allows you to personalise them.
The application does more than that and is man in the middle tool to add value to the raw horse racing results. It carries out ‘number crunching’ behind the scenes when the data is received. Various calculations are done which generate more data and enhance the information being stored.
Probably one of the most valuable items for the horse racing fan or formbook student are ratings. We have all used them as a guide. However these may be constructed, whether that is form or time based, the normal requirement is for every horse from each race to be awarded a rating based on what it achieved in each event. This will involve a calculation on the weight carried and distance beaten in a sort of sliding scale fashion.
Many of you want to use your own judgement or have a way to rate horse racing, but the task of doing so many find is just a bit to onerous. This is where the the App comes in
Horse Racing App will Calculate the ratings for all horses in a race
All you need to do is provide a figure for the winner, then the beaten horses ratings will be calculated automatically. These ratings are visually displayed in the RHFB APP so if you want to adjust any individual figure then this is easily possible.
Fully flexible as pounds per length for any distance you decide
As form students we know that ratings rely on a scale for how points (pounds in handicapping terms) per length should be set. These will also be variable based on the distance the race is run over. The application will cater for this quite easily.
You can actually set this in an easy to edit file. You can of course simply use the settings that are the default of the App. You decide for any distance to let the value of a length be worth, as in the number of points. Simple to edit and you can change this at anytime. Read more about this in our Horse Racing Application article set out in 3 Parts.
