No Ratings Changes After Midweek Feature

Emerald Princess wins Listed Off To Stud Stakes

Sean Tarry’s Emerald Princess remains unchanged on a merit rating of 98 after winning the Listed Off To Stud Stakes over 1600m under Lyle Hewitson at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Wednesday 26 July.

The Handicappers believed that 4th placed MAGICAL FLIGHT made for the best line horse, leaving her unchanged on a mark of 87.

In assessing the race this way 5th placed LET’S NOT LINGER also runs to her rating, effectively making her a line horse as well and leaving her with an unaltered mark of 87 and EMERALD PRINCESS only runs to 97, hence her unchanged rating.

The specific conditions of the race do not allow for an increase in the rating of any horse beyond the winner.

Accordingly, runner-up LUCKY MISS and 3rd placed QUEEN OF SHADOWS remain unchanged on ratings of 83 and 95, respectively, despite actually running to marks of 87 and 96, respectively.

No horses were given a rating drop, which in summary means that no changes whatsoever were made to the merit rating of any contestant in this race.
