Most enthusiasts have a view about how times for the standard trip at nearby tracks compares with those at their local track but assessing the merit of times for all race distances at British and Irish tracks is a challenge even for the most knowledgeable. The "Drop-down" Table below is designed to provide guidance particularly for those considering buying a greyhound from Ireland and also as an aid in studying Open race form.

This system provides a simple means of converting "going adjusted" times ("EST" times at Irish tracks) to a Rating and also the equivalent time for that Rating at another track given the current track conditions.  Ratings are those posted by CHESTER on the Belle Vue Owners Forum (BVOF). Limitations of the BVOF mean that the conversion system cannot operate on that Forum and so CHESTER has kindly agreed to provide and update the underlying Ratings on this site.

Simply select a track, distance and enter a recorded time and then enter a track and distance for comparison and click "Convert" for the comparative time and Rating.

NB. Please refer to the IMPORTANT NOTES explaining the limitations of the time conversions and Ratings
