  • How can we try to predict the rating in an upcoming race?

  • Judging a horse’s consistency and reliability
  • ‘Doing the form’: everything outside of the actual ratings you have
  • How predictable are racehorses, generally?
  • Examples such as Nature Strip, Winx, So Si Bon and Arcadia Queen
