About Consistency Ratings
Hearts Racing Consistency Ratings provide a quick summary of the long term win percentage of the horse, it's trainer, jockey and sire. Adding the percentages together provides an overall view of the consistency or otherwise of several factors associated with the horse. Consistency Ratings are available upon acceptances and after scratchings on race morning.
How Do I Access Consistency Ratings?
Hearts Racing subscribers have access to Consistency Ratings for Melbourne and Sydney races on Saturdays and also for any meeting where a Hearts Racing horse is running.

How To Use This Service
The Consistency Ratings display shows the career win percentage for the horse and the long term win percentage for it's trainer, jockey and sire, as well as the ranking of each for the race. Adding the percentages together gives an overall score for each horse.
|#||HORSE||RNK||WIN %||RNK||WIN %||RNK||WIN %||RNK||WIN %||RNK||WIN %|
|7||HOW GOOD IS HE||8||20.0||5||14.8||8||10.2||2||15.8||7||60.8|
For trainers, jockeys and owners, the winning percentages can be used as a guide to the best chances in each race. For punters, value bets often arise where combinations with a high strike rate come up against less consistent opposition.
Consistent winners, trained by trainers, ridden by jockeys and by sires with a high strike rate, clearly have a higher chance of winning than weaker horses. If these highly consistent combinations are backed when good odds are offered, the result can often be superior to backing favourites.
For Better Results
You may wish to consider using Consistency Ratings in conjunction with Hearts Racing Xtra Ratings. Individually each set of ratings is quite effective but they are even more powerful when their selections co-incide.
