Info:

Handicap Limit

Info:

This is the handicap limit for the race i.e. If the race was a 0-80 handicap then this field would have a value of 80.

Highest Class

Info:

Highest Class

The HC field is a high class indicator field, it works like this :-
The software looks at the last x runs for the horse under the same code of racing as today and notes the highest speed rating achieved in these x runs. It then grabs the class of race that this speed rating was achieved in. This is what is displayed in the column.

x runs can be changed in the preferences under the speed rating tab and defaults to 3

It also works with any filters set. So for instance with no filters set, it is looking at the last x races from the same racing code in races prior to the race you are viewing, and finds the highest speed rating and displays the class of the race.

If you had filters set to ignore turf races and you were viewing a turf race then no HC class figures would be shown.
