• 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.

Just wondering how long you have been doing your own speed figures for and if you specialize in any particular type of race??

Between 2003-2005 I used to run a speed figure website for the all weather based on Nick Mordin's method of calculating.

In thosed days it was mainly on the fibresand but as polytrack became more popular I got less interested as I used to find you often got slow run races that ended with a 2f sprint - Lingfield was especially bad for this!!

Oh and I use Excel for all my stuff but I was wondering what is this mpro program you are using??

Thanks in advance!!

I forgot to say that it is Mordins Ideas I have running.

The speed of the tapeta surface at Wolverhampton last night went off the scale, the first 4 races were as fast as Chelmsford
and it looked like they must have harrowed the track after the 4th race.
I assessed the going allowance for the first 4 races at +0.68s/f and the last 4 at +0.63s/f, it could have been another 5lb slower
so I erred on the side of caution.

AW going allowance table:
Fast +0.50s/f
Stand/Fast +0.18s/f to +0.40s/f
Standard -0.15s/f to +0.15s/f
Stand/Slow -0.48s/f to -0.18s/f
Slow -0.70s/f to -0.50s/f

The wind at Lingfield didn't help matters and this was speeding up the horses down the hill, I ended up with the highest going
allowance at Lingfield for a long time at +0.40s/f.

The official going description at both racecourses was standard...
