The Grids: The grids display. Similar to the way it is done in the Results and the "Racecards".
The Race Number: Abbreviated as "R#" this column identifies the race by it's number. Each number is also a link to the actual race result.
The LBH: This is the calculated Length Behind using the fastest horse as the base. This column is the essence of the LBH tool.
Each race is colour coded as a background colour. This makes it easy to identify what horses were in each race. In this example race 7 and race 8 are shown. Race 8 is a yellowish colour and race 7 has a background colour of light purple.
This is just to show that race 7 is a different background colour to race 8. See above for more information.
