The Chart shows the effect of selecting a horse with 'Best in Race' with 2 paired factors.
Example, if you bet a horse which has the fastest speed rating and the best driver in the race . .
then you can expect a strike success of 36.6% and a ROI of .878.

Best Win% is no surprise, it's the horse with best Trackmaster speed and best on tote board (49.2%).
Best ROI goes to Trackmaster Speed and Best starting position. (0.954)

(Ignore Best Final time coupled with Best 4thQ time . . .they are way 2 dependent on each other.)

The surprise to me is the Driver/Trainer combo.
I expected these horses would be over bet so a ROI of 0.713 is OK
but the strike rate is strange, 24.0%

Data covers 19777 races for 2017 but the sample size for finding a horse with any 2 bests, is around 4000
