TIME CONVERSION SYSTEM - BRITISH AND IRISH TRACKS

Most enthusiasts have a good idea how times at nearby tracks compare with those at their local track, but doing so for every track and distance is a challenge even for the best informed. The "Drop-down" Table below is designed to answer this problem by providing a simple means of converting "going adjusted" times ("EST TIMES" at Irish tracks) to the equivalent time at another track, together with the related Rating. The conversion factors and Ratings are provided and updated by CHESTER who previously posted time data on the Belle Vue Owners Forum.

Whilst Ratings do give an indication of the relative merit of race times for obvious reasons converting race times between widely different distances is meaningless and so conversions are confined to "Race types" (i.e whether over two, four, six or eight bends). First select the "Race type" and then a track, race distance and then enter the time for conversion before selecting the track and race distance for comparison.Clicking "Convert" will show the comparative time and the related Rating.

PLEASE NOTE:

(i) Conversions relate to the current track conditions at each track.

(ii) Going adjusted times can be affected by a variety of factors such as the installation of new traps, changes to phototiming, track changes and changes to the basis of going allowances.

(iii) Comparative times and Ratings for Nottingham take account of the significant reduction in going allowances (40 spots for the standard trip) for races after 1st July 2020.

(iv) Comparative times and Ratings for Shelbourne Park and Mullingar take account of the fact that the tracks are running faster since the bends were re-banked before the resumption of racing on 19th June 2020.

PLEASE REFER TO THE IMPORTANT NOTES EXPLAINING THE LIMITATIONS OF TIME CONVERSIONS AND RATINGS.
