What is our Pace Ratings service?
The pace ratings are currently only available for flat races (turf and all-weather) run in Great Britain and Ireland.
The raw race rating is a score out of 16 points that provides a numerical summary of how the horse has ran in it's three previous races. The higher the score the more evidence has been recorded of the horse racing up with the pace.
The probability score is the % chance that the horse will show early pace in today's race.
Note that more than one horse in every race can show early pace, and that is why the probabilities do not sum to 100%.
Inevitably predicting early pace is not an exact science because jockey and trainer may choose to change the horses usual tactics. However, the ratings have been tested over many years and tend to predict early pace more often than not.
We hope you find the ratings a useful addition to your form analysis.
