    I thought we saw a potential star last night at Lingfield. Major Eazy won by 5 lengths easing down and the time was .7 seconds (7 lengths) faster than the 0-75 3yo Hcap which followed.

    0.7 seconds is not equivalent to 7 lengths.

    The fixed conversion is 5 lengths per second. The "real" conversion is about 6 lengths per second in this instance.

    As I understand it, the fixed conversion refers to the fact that 1 length is 0.2 seconds now and doesn’t imply any actual measurement of a horse-length.

    What do you mean by the ‘real’ conversion?

    According to most calculations, a horse will travel approximately 6 lengths in a second when covering around 12 secs per furlong, as Major Eazy did, though it will be returned as 5 lengths regardless. The "real" conversion of time to distance depends on the horses’ speeds, obviously.

    I haven’t looked at the form and time merit of Major Eazy’s win yet, but it would not really be a surprise if this well-regarded horse were to prove useful. He shaped as if having more ability than the bare result suggests on most/all of his previous appearances.

    Thanks for the reply, Pru.

    I thought he won as his form entitled him to last night.

    Out of interest Prufrock, what did you make of some of the distances returned at Newcastle on Thursday afternoon. The majority of them looked a fair bit less to the eye than the official.

    I didn’t look at them closely at the time and have not kept a recording, so I can’t comment helpfully.
