HOW TO . . . READ NEXT RUN
NEXT RUN below each form item tells you how runners have performed since that particular race, enabling you to gauge the strength of a race. It shows the win, place and unplaced record of the first three finishers and the rest of the field on their next start as well as giving you a strength indicator - hot and cold races are denoted by red and blue blobs respectively. Reads subsequent races of the same code only Covers form in Britain and Ireland, excluding the previous day’s results Place definition is as standard eachway betting rules Hot race = four or more of the runners won their next race OR 50% or more won or were placed next time, and at least two won Cold race = six or more of the runners have run since, none have won and fewer than 33% were placed.
