But if you've still got questions, don't hesitate to contact us. So how does the Predictor work? The Predictor works by applying a weighted percentage of importance to each of the respective form factors.
Each of the elements can be used in conjunction with each other to give you the predicted outcome. See the table below for an explanation on how each element in the predictor relates to a horse's form.
So bear this in mind, especially if you're isolating a single factor. Form Factor Explanation WEIGHT The higher you weight this value the more it will favour horses carrying big weights Typically speaking, especially for Handicaps, the more weight the horse has to carry the better the horse is. The weight allocation in a handicap is designed to level the playing field, but a high weight is still indicative of good ability.
That's not to say it it doesn't have value but it must be used in conjunction with other factors. If you think winning form is the best form then this factor will help you isolate the horses with the best winning strike rates. The fact of the achievement remains but if it was an isolated performance then this should be taken into account.
As with Career Prize Money, this factor should be treated warily when a horse has one isolated win in a lucrative race; such results will significantly affect their AVG Prize Money despite the fact that it doesn't reflect a more consistent performance output.
Respected and established jockeys are also more likely to secure better rides than some of their lesser-known or less experienced colleagues. There are no hard and fast rules here but from a form point of you it makes sense to place some emphasis on the winning strike rate of jockeys - as they, 'winning form is good form'.
