Looking at the race cards in the Daily Mail for the 2.40 at Newcastle yesterday I saw that many of the horses had their form figures ending with a #. Can anyone explain what this means please. Many thanks.
Never seen the # used for this purpose? Tyrion, when you say 'many of the horses' do you mean just 3 of the 11 runners - there were only 3 making their seasonal appearances. If so, AuntLydia is more than likely correct and it may just be a 'Daily Mail' thing. If there were more, it must indicate something else.
I don't think it does actually. One of the horses, Getaway Gerry, with # against it had run on 13 Oct and 3 Nov, so clearly this horse has current form. Sorry I can't find out what the # means but will keep looking. I did see the # against other runners not just at Newcastle on Saturday. Have also looked at Racing Post and Timeform form guides, but they don't use the #.
