Armed with the power of Computer Racecards, our analysts then further interrogate the information this provides.
Adding in factors like track condition, pace, predicted peak ratings and suitability of race provides us with an even clearer picture of the likely outcome of a race.
Then personal input of Racing & Sports' experienced team of handicappers, headed by Timeform's official Australian handicapper Gary Crispe and critically acclaimed analyst Nathan Exelby is incorporated to produce a accurate asssement of a horse's true ability.
This final assessment makes up the Racing and Sports FINAL REPORT.
Racing and Sports Assessed Odds: Final Report has been in the trial phase for some time and we are now proud to release it to the public.
The Racing and Sports Assessed Odds: Final Report will be a specialised product, concentrating on selected races, as assessed by our analysts to be the best betting propositions for each race day. Generally, these races will focus on meetings from Sydney and Melbourne, but occasionally will feature races from Brisbane and Adelaide (specifically, at carnival time for those two venues).
Entire meetings will be covered, with a Star System in place to identify the better betting races.
Assessed Odds: Final Report will be available on race morning from 9:30am.
RSAO analysts will provide an assessed price for the horses we judge to be the principal hopes in each race.
This can vary from two rated runners to 10-12 in races where there appear to be many chances.
These assessed prices should be used as a guide to finding the best value in the race.
Obviously we regard the top rated couple of runners as the best chances, but if the actual price of those horses is less than the assessed price, we regard them as poor value.
Similarly, some horses rated wider in our assessed odds may offer good value should the actual market place have them at well over the rated odds.
It is up to the individual as to how the product will best suit them, but as a rule, we don't recommend supporting horses that are under our rated odds.
On many occasions there will be more than one 'qualifier' in our market.
It comes down to personal preference, but there is often races that offer opportunities to support more than one horse and still show a healthy product.
These issues will be dealt with in Wagering Strategies.
Each race assessed by RSAO analysts will be allotted a Race Rating, measured by zero, one, two or three stars.
Three Star races are where we have a high degree of confidence that the winner will be
found in the top selection. We regard these as good betting races (provided the top rater is
a better price in the marketplace than our assessed odds).
Two Star races also indicate a relatively high degree of confidence, but in this case, confidence that
the winner will be in the top 2 to 3 rated runners. Again, value is of the utmost importance.
One Star races indicate a lesser degree of confidence, but don't necessarily mean they
are poor betting races. These races will often be rated wider (ie, the top pick will be rated at a
bigger price than usual), but will offer opportunities to find bigger priced winners.
A race with no star can indicate a number of things, but in nearly all instances, we regard
them as poor betting affairs. Reasons for a no star race can include: the presence of a very short
priced, long odds-on favourite; not enough exposed form; early 2yo races; events too difficult to assess; small field size; poor value.
In the case of 'No Star' races, the Computer Racecards will be left as a guide for subscribers should they still wish to invest on the race.
The RSAO team will provide Race summaries for all assessed races (except in most cases of 'No Star' races).
These summaries will generally include a Pace comment, likely early leaders and a summation of the leading chances. We also provide a Summary of how we see the race panning out.
It should be remembered however, that these summaries are reliant upon the rated runners being a value price in the marketplace (unless otherwise stated).
Analysts will provide a form comment for most runners in each race, based around their previous form, suitability of race and predictive performance for today.
These ratings are based on straight out statistical analysis - no personal opinion involved. The Jockey Rating represents the performance of that jockey in races of similar distance to the specific race (hence, you will see the same jockey allotted different ratings for races of varying distance on the same day).
Each horse will be allotted a likely position in running.
The top 3 raters in the categories of Prizemoney won (on average per start) over the past 12 months; Winning strike rate; Distance (within 10% of today's race); Track strike rates; Trainer Ratings; and Wet track percentage are included in table form within the assessments for that race.
Will include likely Track conditions, any bias predictions and Best Bets for the specific meetings.
