• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Ronald's Ratings

The only thing I don't understand is both top and bottom of column "B" provide winners I did this just to get the speed per furlong the races were run at.
 
Good day at the office.
Kempton
3.00 Upstaging NR next on the list Second Wave Won Not sure I should claim this one.
5.10 The Sterward Won
5.40 Exit Europe Won
 
This is the program I use to generate my selection I then transfer to excel to do the screen shot.Screenshot (22).png

Any chance you could keep a standard P/L to 1pt level stakes, something along the lines of:-

Selection 24
Winners 6
S/R 25%
P/L +5.67

It might also be worth your while keeping an eye on the average SP odds of selections and the Maximum Winning odds as I suspect that the 14/1 has a major impact on whether you are in profit or not.

I still can't get my head around how you end up with horses ranked in a different order by just using a different Std time, perhaps someone could point out why I am being stupid?
 
Hi ArkRoyal,
Below is the same race as I put up earlier but in alphabetical order, If you check it against my other post you should agree that finding the top rated is much easier than on the one below.

Doing a rough tally of my selections:

24 bets at £1 =£24
5 winning bets =£21.75 not counting the 14/1 winner
6 winning bets = £36.75 counting the 14/1 winner, I prefer not to do a P/L not on a regular basis.

I have no problem identifying the top rated
I can't see how Just Marion is top using one Std Time but 3rd using another.
I must be missing something obvious :confused:

Hi ArkRoyal,
Look at the 11 furlong standard times they are 5.51 seconds difference they are bound to give different ratings resulting where they figure in the race If I am working these figures out the wrong way can someone please tell where I am going wrong.

Of course you will get different values for the ratings but I thought that the ranking ie best to worse would be the same:confused: Assuming you are just changing the Std Time.
 
Hi ArkRoyal,

I am sorry but I cannot explain it any better than I already have, the only difference in both blocks is the different ratings that put individual horses in different places in the block I only adjust the view so that the highest rated is at the bottom of the blocks.

I would dearly love to work out how to make one system out of the two But my old brain cannot work out a way to do that as yet.
