what exactly is "proper racing ground" in your opinion

Regarding the speed figures you quoted are you telling me that:

(a) Kingscliffe earned a weight adjusted rating of 170 for winning the Betfair Chase in 2005. So even though BoS was only 1.25 lengths behind but still didn’t earn a good enough speed figure to be deemed Gr1 standard

(b) Best Mate earned a weight adjusted rating of 179 for winning the Gold Cup in 2004 and BoS was only 3.5 lengths behind but still didn’t earn a good enough speed figure to be deemed Gr1 standard

(c) Kauto Star earned a weight adjusted rating of 179 for winning the Betfair Chase in 2005 and BoS was 17 lengths behind but still didn’t earn a good enough speed figure to be deemed Gr1 standard

How many speed points does 1 length in a 3m Gr1 chase equal?

And how many Gr1 standard horses over 3m have we seen in your opinion in the last 5 years? Two? BM & KS probably.
