I've always felt Beyers are a useful judge of a horse's form and ability, but on turf I think they are less reliable. With 6-7 main track races on a day, it is much easier to figure out what the track speed variant is. If there is only one turf race, say a mile in 1:35, I don't see how they tell whether the track was fast or slow based on the one race. Yeah, the jockeys might have comments like it was hard or giving, but the turf numbers just don't seem to have the same mathematical basis as the main track numbers.
With AJW, the race was visually impressive, it looked like she had some left in the tank, so whatever the number was she could probably run a few points higher. If that was a 90, she should still be very competitve in a race where it looks like you'd need a 95 to win it.
AJW got a 90 and Van Brit got an 80.
