HOOF Ratings

HOOF Ratings

National Hunt race ratings, designed for a statistics-grounded value approach to horse racing over jumps in the UK.

The program used to generate the ratings, uses Bayes' Theorem* to calculate each horse's chance of winning. The resulting figures are then recalculated to give an edge in the backer's favour. Hence the acronym: Horserace Optimum Odds Forecast (HOOF).

* See their web site for an explanation of Bayes' Theorem.
