Welcome to Racing Research

Racing Research provides a highly sophisticated collateral form ratings service for British and North American horse-racing (North American being a private service).

We rate every performance by every horse in every race in Britain and North America, using a system of computer analysis which has been continuously developed over 30 years.

Unlike other form ratings services, which rely on subjective assessment by a manual assessor, we are able to process and re-evaluate millions of formlines daily to produce the most comprehensive and objective analysis of racehorse performance available in the world today.Our algorithms not only replicate all the worthwhile techniques used by manual collateral form rating systems, but go much further to analyse races to a depth which is way beyond the limitations of other systems.

We take a similarly rigorous approach to the production of time ratings, trainer form, jockey ratings and draw analysis. We are confident that there is no more robust, mathematical analysis of racing form available to the serious horseplayer.
