The Flat times are in a similar format but with the relevant information for Flat racing such as the draw for previous races and for the race for that day so you can take advantage of any draw bias that may be applicable Flat Example Race.

The spreadsheet will usually be available to download from the daily figures page within the members areas from around 5pm the evening before racing, although the times may vary during festivals.  A notification email will be sent to confirm availability.

Speed Figure Selector

Each day, Speed Figure Selector will cherry pick and highlight the most attractive races boasting what we consider to be the most reliable selections from ratings for that day’s action.  To ensure the strongest selections are produced for subscribers overall and sectional times, course form, ground conditions and suitability of trip are just some of the primary indicators we will employ to emphasise the most attractive horses each day.  Providing there are enough qualifiers, we will endeavour to identify a Gold, Silver and Bronze selection on a daily basis by 10am. The Gold selection will be the strongest on the figures followed by the Silver and finally Bronze.
