Horse Profiles

Profit through an expert knowledge of individual horses
By Daniel O’Sullivan, The Form-Pro


Consider the class peak and career form cycle to try to estimate the level you think this horse could reach. Specifics are not really needed, only generalisations.

Does the horse look like it will measure up to Group racing? Does it look destined to only ever be competitive in Open Handicaps or even Restricted events?


Over what distance range does the horse race at its best?

Over what distances has the horse failed?


How are the horse’s runs usually spaced?

Is there a pattern to its good performances? Does it always win or run well fresh, first or second-up?

Does the horse need regular racing and a number of runs from a spell to show its best?


Is there any evidence that the horse has a weight-carrying threshold?


Does the horse seem to run particularly well or poorly at certain tracks?

Track Condition

In what going has the horse performed best?

Does it show a notable preference for one over another?

Run Position

Does the horse like to race close to the lead, off the pace a little, or come from well back?

Does the race distance or barrier draw influence where the horse races?

From what running position does the horse usually perform at its best?


Does the horse seem to perform better in "sit and sprint" type races that have a slow early pace or does it need pace on?

Does the horse seem versatile enough to perform well regardless of the early pace?
