[AusRace] Jockey Rating Thoughts

You should be putting a South African Jockey right up there with the HK champ on some measures and actually ahed on others but Len might disagree with me whenit comes to their 'value' to you as a bettor.

Len knows more than most but may not want to share much!

Punter behaviour may confuse any jockey rating values you come up with and this behaviour may also change over time as perceptions change. So the question becomes what is more important - jockey rating or punter behaviour to your bottom line? Possibly the answer changes quite radically over time and noticing this early on may give you an edge ....... for a time ..... but not forever.

I am using a set of jockey ratings that have been calculated over a 12 mnth history.
Naturally there are potentially some inaccuracies with jockeys currently out of form or others recently improved and not commanding a high rating.
My question is has anyone ever done any analysis to determine the optimum period over which to calculate the rating and how often to update it ?

Thanks in advance.
