We have taken the RacingFormBook SFF (Single File Format) results data CSV’s and boosted them with salient information which comes direct from our Racecard data files. This will add countless possibilities in assessing, analysing and researching horse racing results. If you are familiar with spreadsheets then this could well be of infinite benefit to you. With just simple filtering you can try out all sorts of ideas to work out trends, statistics and systems. Of course if you then add in formulas or even some scripts this becomes even more powerful. If you want to do straight forward form study having our extra pre race data can only improve your thoroughness.
Let us get straight to the point and tell you what extra information (to the SFF’s) we provide in the spreadsheet. We list details regarding every single column of information further down the page. This a run down of the new data we are adding to the results.
Form Figures – For each horse the form shown before the race.
CDB – The letters which denote a Course winner. A Distance winner. A Course & Distance winner. With of course whether the horse was a Beaten Favourite on it’s prior run.
Days Since Ran – Simply the number of days since the horse last ran.
Tissue Price – We show the Forcast SP price that as published on the racecard. We also covert this to a decimal, so in fact there are 2 columns devoted to this.
Serious and advanced users of horse racing data will be able to make use of these new additional fields. However the Racing Results Spreadsheet will be ideally suited to anyone who wants to start analysing horse racing results. If you have thought about studying racing results before and have been daunted by the prospect of doing so, then our spreasheet may well be ideal for those of you. With spreadsheet applications, like Excel, having built in formula and functions, plus scripting via VBA. Then with little effort you will be able to use the power of the spreadsheet to manipulate and extract the information you require.
Take the Form Figures column for example. Using the Excel formula Right it is very easy for you to extract just the last 2 finishing postions for every horse that ran in the spreadsheet. To do so you would simply go to Column AN Row 2 and enter this in to the Cell. =RIGHT(AI2,2) The results show will be 13. Then simply copy this formula to all the Rows you want. Very basic, but a simple example of the power of the spreadsheet.
If you don’t use a spreadsheet and want these results in the universal CSV format. Then we will include a corresponding CSV format with each download.
Another item of note with regard to the unique RacingFormBook Race ID. We allocate one for every race run and this is the same one used in all our results data. Thus it will make it possible to cross reference and load data between any format.
