This page is dedicated to learning how to read the racing Grids.
First, what is a Grid? Simply it is a chart that shows the horses, trainers, jockeys, their recent performance figures, ROI stats, and some speed calculations that you won’t find anywhere else, all in one convenient chart in spreadsheet type format, 1 or 2 pages per racing card (rather than 20-40 pages if you download the pp’s).
Part of a Grid looks like this:
