2015 OFFICIAL & RACING POST HORSE RATINGS


The 2015 Official and Racing Post horse ratings names the Top 10 horses in jump racing, and worldwide flat racing in two categories:
5 - 6 furlong and 7 - 9 furlong. The horse ratings table - below - is updated on the 1st and 15th of the month. .

Racing Post Ratings (RPR) are based on a horse's racing ability in relation to the weight carried i.e. if horse X beats horse Y carrying
the same weight then it is awarded a higher rating. The ratings are expressed in pounds (lb) so a horse rated 140 is regarded as 10lb better than one rated 130. There is a sliding scale for converting lb to distance where 3lb = 1 length over 5f and 1lb = 1 length over 2m
and upwards. Official ratings (OR) use the same criteria as Racing Post Ratings, but are compiled by the British Horse racing Board (BHB) and are used to determine the weights horses carry in handicap ratings. By contrast to RPR the BHB rating listed for horses in
results reflect the horses' ratings going into the race not what they achieved in the race.

Gold Cup Runners Hold The Key In Betfred Bowl

The Betfred Bowl on Thursday is always one of the highlights of Aintree's Grand National Festival. It provides an opportunity for horses
who ran in the Ryanair Chase and the Cheltenham Gold Cup to clash and offers a very different test to both races on Aintree's flat track.

You don't necessarily need to have raced at Cheltenham the previous month to stand a chance in this race. The last 2 winners came straight from Cheltenham but the previous 3 winners had all skipped the Festival for one reason or another. If looking at the last 7 winners
of this race who have run at Cheltenham there have been 5 winners that had taken in the Gold Cup and just 2 have come out of the
Ryanair Chase. Remarkable only one of them were successful at Cheltenham, that was Our Vic in 2008 who had won the Ryanair Chase the month before.

It is therefore unsurprising that the two favourites for the race this year were beaten horses from the Gold Cup. Holywell is just edging last year's winner Silviniaco Conti in the betting but it wouldn't be a shock if Paul Nicholls' Silviniaco Conti ended up as favourite. The vibes were extremely strong on Gold Cup day despite two below par efforts in the race previously and it's fair to say that Silviniaco Conti has been better than ever this season so he could easily bounce back returned to a flatter track.

Holywell's chance in the Gold Cup seemed to revolve around an impressive course record so he's not guaranteed to be quite as good here, despite a decent record at this venue as well. His effort from Cheltenham can be upgraded a little though as the rain that fell on
Gold Cup Day wouldn't have been to his liking. This trip seems ideal.

Unlike many of the other races at the Aintree meeting, which can be a lottery, most notably the Grand National, this race is excellent for those who look to stats and form to pick winners. Unlike the randomness of slots, fruit machines and other games at Fruity Reels which
are stacked in the houses favour, picking winners in the Betfred Bowl can be achieved by following

Paul Nicholls also has Al Ferof in the race but he doesn't look quite good enough for this so the nearest rivals to Holywell and
Silviniaco Conti should be Ma Filleule and Don Cossack who were 2nd and 3rd respectively in the Ryanair. That form looks highly likely
to be reversed with this extra half mile very much in the Irish trained Don Cossack's favour whilst the likelihood of slightly softer ground
than on Day 3 of Cheltenham should also suit Don Cossack. The problem for Don Cossack supporters though is that Holywell trounced
the horse here a year ago by ten lengths so Don Cossack will need to have improved plenty since then.

This race revolves around Silviniaco Conti and whether the Gold Cup has left it's mark on him. Arguably though Holywell had the harder race as he was involved in the finish unlike Silviniaco Conti who had a relatively easy last furlong or two. Therefore it is Silviniaco Conti
who should be backed to make it another win for the Gold Cup runners, with Holywell most likely to follow him home.
