Newmarket July Festival

Three top class days of racing come from Newmarket this week with the July Meeting getting underway. We’ll see plenty of horses from Royal Ascot lock horns again and it’ll be a superb three days.

To mix it up we'll be sharing the racecards for every race at the festival from our sister site Form Ratings.

If you want to know exactly what the headers mean check out this page.

To briefly summarize the main points:

  • The LR scores are ratings for how well a horse has performed in previous races.
  • The "Spd" is a speed rating.
  • The HRS represents how well a horse has run in race scenarios most similar to the one it is in taking into account factors such as; the jockey, the trainer, distance, when last run etc.
  • FRN stands for “Form Ratings Number” and is the main rating. It takes into account the most factors which are are all weighted to give the strongest overall rating.
