na - insufficient runners for meaningful result

Some take-aways from this analysis:

  • For 4yo and older the win strike rates are significantly lower in the 29-60 days range.
  • For 3yo's win strikes rates are similar across the board, unlike over the shorter breaks.
  • Where a number is asterisked the figure should be treated with caution; either an outlier or too low a number.
