At the risk of being accused of sexual harassment, or even being biased towards a particular gender, if you are female, I'd kiss you.
I have been searching for a breakdown of the Australian Racing Class Ladder - in the manner that you have outlined.
See my posts under the INTERNATIONAL RACING section.
This is fantastic stuff.
If you have this kind of breakdowns for NZ, Japan, HK, Singapore and Korea, please upload it or guide me to where I am likely to find this information, on the internet.
I bet primarily in the US - and while we don't have an exact European type rating system, (with Official Handicapper / Benchmark type ratings), our racing class structure usually helps us to make, fairly, easy distinctions.
In the US, our weights are usually between 118 Lbs to 126Lbs. We rarely see anything over 126 and we don't rely on an official handicapper to rate our horses.
I am not interested in the ratings but I like the outline of the different divisions - that helps me to put things in perspective.
Anywho, gotta run. Will be looking at this again.
If you bet US races, I have uploaded the US style Daily Racing Form (DRF) Past Performances (PP's) for races 5 thru 10 at Santa Anita this Afternoon.
I like a longshot called DESERT FOX in the 6th. First time starter has good workouts (barrier trials), get Lasix (Legal Diuretic in the US) and picks up an Apprentice for the debut.
An exacta/Trifecta box with KOPITAR (#7) and OPTIMUM (#5) is what I will play.
