All stables, contrary to popular belief, endure both periods when their horses are particularly fit and healthy and others when they are decidedly not. This can be completely out of the hands of the trainer when, for example, there may be a virus in the yard. There is no doubt stables do come into and, go out of, 'form'.
The intention of this section is to provide statistical evidence of both. Naturally that does not mean that all the horses from a stable in form will win nor that all the horses from a stable out of form will lose, but in the quest for the complete and final analysis, you will find this an invaluable asset.
The NB Trainers Index is potentially one of your most powerful tools. By analysing every runner from each stable, we are able to clearly identify how any stable's horses are generally performing. When this is done, a ranking is produced. This can be particularly helpful in distinguishing between two strong candidates who are hard to divide on either racecourse form or homework criteria. Stable Form analysis can be a further determinant of the degree of dominance between two similarly qualified horses. Our comprehensive index can reveal the underlying facts concerning a yard's runners.
The NB Index looks at all the runners from a stable, over a given period and the Index provides a measure of performance that can be compared with the form of all opposing stables in any particular race. A low index (typically below 9.5) suggests that despite their overall ability, the horses from a stable may be a little below par and could not be construed to be 'In Form', while a high Index (typically above 13.5) suggests a yard's runners are, in general, running up to their full potential and could not be considered 'Out of Form'. Naturally the higher the Index the more consistently a yard's horses are running. Conversely a lower index indicates the opposite.
When you join, you will be able to sort the data in a number of different ways. You simply click on the heading of your choice to reformat the table to reflect your preference.
As the race cards are processed the previous day to racing, any winners won't be updated within the trainer form, so we are in effect one day behind on the stables form. We'd always therefore suggest you check if the trainer had any winners the previous day before concluding the stable was out of form. As a means of quick reference those trainers who appear to be in particularly good from will be noted in red (hot) while those who have endured a particularly poor run of form will be noted in blue (cold).
Naturally, this statistical evidence, of stables in and out of form, is neatly included in each racecard whenever the trainer has a runner (see image beneath table).
