HANDICAPPING RATINGS UPDATE
Michael Roberts Handicap (Listed)
NEWS STREAM has had his rating raised from 90 to 96 following his success in the Listed Michael Roberts Handicap over 1750m on the Scottsville inner course on Sunday 17 January. Some of this adjustment is due to the fact that NEWS STREAM was 3 pounds or 1.5 kgs under sufferance at the weights.
It was runner-up MR FITZ who was used as the line horse which leaves him unchanged on a mark of 96. In assessing the race this way, both third placed MARCHINGONTOGETHER and 4th finisher SHARE HOLDER also run to their marks (108 and 96 respectively) and effectively become line horses with unaltered marks as well.
There were no increases for any horse other than the winner, while the solitary drop was for WEALTHY, who is down from 94 to 92.
