Top Rated At Courses
As can be expected the ratings do appear to do better at some courses than at others.
The reason for this is undetermined but it is believed that these courses have one thing in common: that they offer less than top-grade racing.
My local course, if it can be called local, is Bangor-On-Dee and despite it being a constant as far as the ratings are concerned it cannot be described, by any stretch of the imagination, as a course offering top class racing. Indeed, the last I looked it didn't even offer a stand for the racegoers.
Whatever the underlying reason there is one constant that can't be denied, and that is at some courses the top rated horses do very well.
A run with the Data Analysis Tool will show that some courses, particularly Bangor and Wolverhampton are profitable year in and year out, even after a 5% exchange commission if the top rated is backed blind.
One other course that used to be strong for top rated horses was Hereford, another mostly unloved low grade course. Alas, so unloved that someone had decided to turn it into a supermarket, executive housing, a bowling alley or something equally unappealing.

It was common knowledge that backing the top rated at Wolvhampton simply had to be done. However, due to one thing and another I tended to forget and then one Monday evening a top rated Wolverhampton horse rolled in at 172 on the exchanges.
Needless to say that this was one of the days which I hadn't backed these horses. I was mortified whilst, at the same time, pleased to see people chime in with comments on the forum saying that there on that or that they were on that for up to five points because of various systems that they had going.
So I promised myself that I would never forget again and so I made the web page, Top Rated At Courses, which is to be found on the Other Selections page in the Members' Area.
That page contained not only Wolverhampton and Bangor-On-Dee but other courses too.
And guess what? Yes, I forgot about that page too until mid April 2015 the top rated at Wolverhampton rolled in at 40s.
To say that I was once again mortified is an understatement; mostly because it seemed that everyone else had forgotten about it too.
To rectify this, this page has been written so that we know about the top rated horses at these courses and that we don't forget them. This selection list is now in my The BetEngine daily feed waiting to catch the next decent priced top rated Wolverhampton winner.
