    If it's wrong tomorrow then I'm over-looking something and something in the various scripts is writing something where it shouldn't be writing things.

    As it stands, it looks correct right now, though.

    Just going back to this... the thought ran through my mind when I was implementing the Going into HRSC.

    The problem I had at the time is that I'm not sure of the order of these things.

    Yielding... where does that fit into the "scale"?

    It would be a big job to go back through it all now but, if I think it's worth it, then I would be prepared to do it.

    Imagine a scale where the boggiest, soggiest ground is probably "Heavy" and the hardest ground is "Firm" and then give them all a number from 1 to 12 (or whatever).

    It would be possible to give a Going +/-1 record for each horse but it does require the Goings to be placed into the correct order.

    the number scale sounds a good idea.

    A.W. a course win covers it, I think ?

    I'll give it some more thought. There has to be a better way than the one currently being adopted.

    Looks like you Cracked it ! :)
    double checked five races S - S - G/S - S - G/F all match Inform

    as you say the only problem is if the Going changes overnight - but quite easy to check again in the morning - probably best value coming with the extremes of Going :rain:

    Suspect extreme changes just cause carnage with withdrawals and the accompanying Rule 4 Deductions.

    It's no problem to run the script again in the morning (after HRSC updates the Going) but that's going to affect things if you're publishing selections based on this the evening before... but I guess that's the way it is with any system/tipster type thing which uses the Going as a criterion.

    Going Symbols working well

    What next ? :) don't want to add too much

    but there are a few more, I would like to see - one is Running Style "Symbols"
    out and out front runner : PP
    usually prominent : P
    prominent and held up : PH
    held up and prominent : HP
    held up : H

    no idea how easy it would be to implement

    Wouldn't hold your breath on that one... I'd need somewhere to gather the data from.

    Yeah, I'm sure its not easy - what about noting running style for just the winners?

    I use Inform to see past in running styles,but you have to scan the pop ups - it would be nice to have it abbreviated in one line as the Ratzcard :)
    I know I mentioned before about odds - one idea would be to show best bookmaker prices from ATR maybe a picture of the odds from 8pm and updated every now and again
    Would be good to see all that info at a glance! - anyway just some thoughts

    Going Symbols have highlighted a few winners on the extremes inc G/F if sticking with 6/1+ :blue:

    just to clarify - just a symbol for their wins, not the overall running style.

    Still a question of where to get this info from and how to record it (what format it will be recorded in - what kind of things should be recorded etc?).
