Sectional Ratings

Subscription options have moved on to February. See our Monthly Subscription page for more.

Sectional Ratings is a brand new site where you can subscribe monthly to receive speed ratings with upgrades using sectional times. We are the first website of its kind fully covering every meeting in the UK. We also cover selected meetings from Ireland, France and Meydan.

A monthly subscription with us means you will be sent our Sectional Racecards every day, as well as Sectional Ratings in a filterable database and in race-by-race format.

Sectional times are an essential piece of form analysis in horse racing. The majority of punters recognise their importance but find it hard to put the numbers into context. Or they simply don’t have the time!

We use sectional times to create a finishing speed percentage. As an example, we can take the final 3f time a horse has run in a race over 1m2f and calculate what pace the horse achieved against what would be expected as par at the course. This finishing speed percentage tells us if a horse has run too fast upfront, too slow, or to par. If they haven’t run to par, we can then calculate a sectional upgrade and add it to a more traditional speed figure.

Pace is such an important factor in analysing a racecard prior to a race, and analysing a horse’s performance afterwards. Our Sectional Ratings take this into account and reward horses whose final times have been compromised accordingly.

It’s our aim to give people an insight into UK horse racing that they’ve not had before. Find out why you should subscribe and how.
