Ratings of all horses COMPRESSED to 40.0+kilos or 80+ points of half a kilo each

With Overlapping of Weights 2.5 kilos (10.0x5=50.0) - (2.5x4=10.0) = 40.0 kilos

Weights of 57.5 – 60.0 of lower class Overlaps with

Weights of 50.0 - 52.5 of higher class in all classes

When horses ‘moves up weights go down and when horses move down weights goes up

With ratings’ in all classes

Scale indicates the minimum weights allotted as per the ratings of the horses as Weights are raised only to meet the criteria of lowest minimum top weight and there is

No lowering of weights at any stage of Handicapping

In the highest rated class of class I since ratings go up beyond 80 points if sufficient horses with high weight ratings are there on the ground and if there is a need Races may be framed for horses rated 75 and over in the rating band of 75-95+ in Class I. Similarly this may be done in the lowest rated class also to cater to the needs of horses with negative ratings before they are moved out.
