HANDICAPPING RATINGS UPDATE

Jockey Club Stakes (Listed)

MERYL’s rating was left unchanged on 101 after her narrow victory in the Listed Jockey Club Stakes for fillies and mares over 2000m at Fairview (turf course) on Friday, 23 August 2019.  In fact, MERYL was by some way the highest rated runner in this conditions event.

The Handicappers were of the opinion that the consistent sixth placed ESTEEMAL was the correct line horse to use in assessing the race and as such, her rating remains unchanged.

Runner-up RAVEN GIRL was raised from 94 to 98, while third placed STUDIO BLUES was upped from 90 to 96.  Fourth placed DELIA’S DELIGHT remains unaltered on 97.

The only other changes were made to RED GINGER (who drops from 96 to 94), WOODSTOCK FAIRY (down to 78 from 80) and to WIDOW’S LAMP, who drops to 90 from 92.
