QUIZ: The Top Rated Jumps horses of 2019
Time for a quiz to find out just how much you’ve been paying attention to the jumps season so far…can you pick which horse has a higher official rating in a series of head-to-heads?
Ratings Explained: Simply put the ratings are figures calculated by the official handicappers to rate how good a horse is. The higher the figure, the better the horse.
One point in the scale equates to one pound of extra weight that can be carried by the jockey – For example a horse rated 170 is theoretically able to carry 7lbs more in jockey weight in a race than a horse rated 163.
