Fantasy Henley 2017 – Prediction Results
Well done everyone who managed to get their predictions completed in time for the deadline, we’ve got a total of 471 entries which is more than last Henley (448) but not quite as many as Rio (523)
With 3 new events at HRR this year and less entries than last year we’re expecting it to be easier to predict correctly – we won’t know whether that’s true until Sunday afternoon but what we do know is that on average, the favourites have 5% more support than they did last year… confidence is high(er)!
Once again it’s the Wyfold (Men’s club 4-) that’s proving the most divisive with no clear favourite, although the favourite is Sydney RC on 17.12%
The strongest favourite is Leander Club with 84% in the Queen Mother (open 4x), closely followed by Vicky Thornley in the Princess Royal. Based on previous results, with this level of support they both an over 90% chance of success on Sunday.
Based on previous results any crew with support of more than 60% of the fantasy rowing community has a 80% probability of success but support between 50% and 60% indicates that a crew’s probability of success is only 52%
As usual, only crews with 5% or more show up in the graphs but at the bottom of the page you’ll find the full results…enjoy!
