From Claude Toscan:
I was wondering if Brett Craig could tell me what points "split" is required to make a top selection a best bet, each way bet etc.....Also can we frame an odds market with this points system? Best wishes.... Claude.

Brett Craig replies:
Yes Claude, we can work out prices if we wish. Simply add up the total points of the main chances.

Horse A: 80 points
Horse B: 70 points
Horse C: 50 points
Horse D: 44 points
TOTAL: 244 points

In this market...
Horse A equals 80/244, or 2/1 chance,
Horse B equals 70/244, or 5/2 chance,
Horse C equals 50/244, or 5/1 chance,
and Horse D equals 44/244, or 9/2 chance.

To make A stand out, let's do it again:
Horse A: 80 points
Horse B: 50 points
Horse C: 30 points
TOTAL: 160 points

We now have Horse A equal to 80/160, or 50%, or EVEN MONEY.

Once again, to determine prices, simply divide the horse's points by the total points of all the chances and multiply by 100 to get the horse's chance of winning. The result of this will give a very clear guide to a horse's fitness, ability and handicap (weights, barriers etc).

Allan Nuss Asks: I find your Simple Ratings for Punters a great article but I am not sure on a few points.
For example: in the example race how do you work out the Base Rating for the horse Asterman? Do you add only the last run (8 points) or all three last runs including the two before the spell (1 + 10 + 8 to get 19)?  Thank you for your assistance. Regards, Allan Nuss.


Brett Craig Replies:
Allan, the Fitness Points takes care of this situation. You always add the last 3 runs, then make additions or deductions according to the table. You will notice that a second up run gets a deduction!
