    OK. I've got the going thing ready to go but there's a slight problem...

    HRSC gets "tomorrow's" going at 19:15 and updates with "today's" going at 10am.

    So... if there are any overnight going changes then the cards will be wrong.

    At the moment, it is set to calculate Going wins at 20:02 so it will take into account "tomorrow's" going.

    If you're happy with this then it should all work this evening.

    Otherwise, it's going to need a bit more work.

    Not sure I have quite got my head around it
    so today's winners are updated with tomorrows going - should be o.k.
    look forward to tonight's cards :)

    Andy/phucket,

    Ummmm...what/where is the Universal Area ?

    I can't seem to find it anywhere...but then again, I could never find the G spot either.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    When you log into HRSC - you will see a menu - click on Universal Area and that will take you
    useful for checking out individual Jockeys/Trainers :)
    includes about two years HRSC past data

    Hmmm...

    Tomorrow's going is gathered at around 19:15.

    At 20:02, the program checks for winners on that going in each of tomorrow's races and applies a G1,G2 etc next to the horse's name...

    It should be self-explanatory when you see it tonight (assuming it works... I haven't checked it).

    I used a ?? for when the Going wasn't picked up properly. In the case of Gowran Park, there's no Going at present... this is the problem with doing it the evening before, I suppose.

    I think the most important Going to note is Soft
    think twice about backing the top few rated if not proven on the ground if Soft ;)

    maybe an idea to pin up somewhere your latest Ratzcard for members

    I could but I will have to transfer yours somewhere else because yours contains that link to re-fetch everything in case it hasn't worked and I really don't want too many people having access to that - could cause mayhem. :)

    One thing that has occurred to me is to give a mention at the top of what the Going was when the stats were gathered just in case there's an overnight change.

    Might be a slight problem with collecting going data :(

    Yarmouth 7.10 last night going Soft : Johnie Skull 11 wins ( soft )
    today going Good : Johnie Skull 11 wins ( Good )
    same with Luhaif same race

    according to Inform ; Johnie Skull G 1/13 - g/f 2/12 - sd 1/14 - g/s 1/7 - S 0/5 - hy 0/1

    I have only double checked this race at the mo.

    just had a look at 7.40 Yarmouth : Anton Chiguh - last night Soft 3 wins
    today Good 3 wins - Inform G/S 1/3 - G 0/6 - S 0/4 - GF 0/1 - SD 0/2 - HY 2/3
    thought it was a bit to easy ?

    Thanks for checking it, Phuket.

    I'll have to take a look - possibly later but my head's done in tonight - spent all day trying to get something working which refuses. :)

    There's clearly something wrong (Jonnie Skull actually has 11 wins on the database but, as you point out, the going wasn't the same on each occasion).

    Leave it with me, I'll try to establish what's happening and sort it out. For now... best to ignore it.

    Oh ffs... just realised what I've done... accidentally inserted a '>' sign in the formula so it's been checking for going>='1' (as 1 is the number I've given for soft going) so it is basically getting them all as 1 is the lowest number.

    Don't worry if this makes absolutely no sense to you. Just know that tonight's output should make a little more sense but please do check it again. :)

    just gone back in again - Beverley G/S
    3.35 Magascar G1 g/s ( inform G1 g/f )
    4.10 Kirkman G1 g/s ( Inform G1 good )
    5.50 Ice Blast G4 g/s ( Inform G2 GF1 SD2 - no g/s )

    what I had in mind initially was just to have the "Symbols" next to maybe the form figs
    then you would have an overall view of going preference and wouldn't need to worry about going changes
    as you could see if it has won on the new going.
    rather than hone in only on good to soft as an example. :)

    Right... I'm with you... that kind of makes sense now you've actually fecking explained it. :)

    Could get a bit messy because there are something in the region of 14 different Going types being recorded and if a horse has ran on them all then we're gonna have a lot to take in.

    There's still something not right with the script, though.

    Madagascar Moll is showing as 0 good-soft going wins when I hard code that one through (which is correct).

    Back to the drawing board... :)

    OK. Just re-wrote the script and ran it through. Seems to have corrected things. Will have to see what happens tomorrow night, now, though.

    Maybe you could lump sections together some how ?
    e.g. anything with G/S - Soft - Heavy in the description list as S
    any with G/F - Firm - Hard list as F
    and something in the middle

    Take it easy :cool:
