What are Speed Maps?

Our animated Speed Maps show where the horse is expected to settle in the run. They also show the likely pace of a race e.g. the more horses at the front of the speed map, the more 'pace' in the race, the more at the back then the less.

Where do I find Speed Maps?

Speed Maps can be accessed by scrolling further down the race card and opening the 'Speed Map' down arrow.

How do I use Speed Maps?

Speed Maps can be replayed by tapping the 'replay' button.
Horses closer to the left of screen are deemed slower while horses closer to the right of screen are deemed faster. When a horse is scratched or has no speed available this will be indicated by text next to the box number.
