Hi Wily Ole Dog,
Thank you for clarifying the regional distinctions.
But I ask the previous questions again - because I am a slow comprehender.
My questions are open to everyone to answer.
Q1
But, in general, are these Open races,  - races with no restrictions or special conditions?
Q2
Are these OPEN races better than, equal to or lower than Listed Races?
Q3
Also, if they are, generally, better than Benchmark races, are there exceptions eg High end Benchmark races?

Q4
Are they better than, equal to or lower than any Handicaps (Excluding the Melbourne Cup) - if so, elaborate

I am trying to figure out where this Australian race "type" fits on the Australian racing Class Ladder.
Thank you

All those question you’ve asked are answered by where the precinct is.

There are minor exceptions but generally an open race in the country(outskirts) regions is WEAKER than an open race in the provincial.
An open race in the provincials is weaker than the city/metro races

Group and listed gradings are a historical grading placed on the quality of races over time
The same as your Grade 1 races have over time been your “better” races

Therefore an Open race given Listed or Group status is better than an open race that doesn’t have that status

Hi Wily Ole Dog,
Thank you - for the clarification.
I apologize for asking asinine questions - but I would rather have you think of me as a fool than lose my money betting the wrong choice because I don't have a solid grasp of the fundamentals.
An understanding of what I call a Class Ladder is fundamental to my play.
Do you bet on US races?
