A brand new product to the market, Feature Race Reports are exclusive to Betfair Australia and Punting Form (Sectional Pro Form Subscribers). The reports are a data-driven approach to identifying patterns in past performances and understanding the historic strengths typically required to win a particular feature race.
They do this by:
- Capitalizing on the Punting Form database, which is a warehouse of ‘form’ dedicated to analysing runners in 200m sectional increments.
- Sectional times are then ’standardised’ to account for the prevailing race conditions.
- Converting times into a benchmark rating, which aids in the understanding of each runner’s relative performance.
The Feature Race Report displays:
- The most recent performance of each horse, along with their ‘Last-2-Year Personal Best’, from a ‘benchmark rating’ perspective (along with other relevant ‘form’ factors).
- Race commentary which identifies runners who are the most likely to be suited in the upcoming running of the event compared with the historical feature race profile.
