Horse racing

In three recent races at Rosetta Park, the results have been:

Horse racing is a draft programming task. It is not yet considered ready to be promoted as a complete task, for reasons that should be found in its talk page.
Background

Race 1

Pos Horse Weight Dist Sex
1 A 9.00 0.0 Colt
2 B 8.06 2.0 Filly
3 C 9.04 1.5 Colt

Time 1 minute 36.0 seconds


Race 2

Pos Horse Weight Dist Sex
1 D 8.10 0.0 Filly
2 E 9.03 1.0 Colt
3 F 9.07 3.0 Colt

(F was slowly away and lost 2 lengths at the finish as a result)

Time 1 minute 36.4 seconds


Race 3

Pos Horse Weight Dist Sex
1 G 8.04 0.0 Colt
2 H 8.10 1.5 Colt
3 I 9.05 0.5 Filly

Time 1 minute 35.8 seconds


It is assumed that:

1. Weights carried are expressed in stones and pounds (traditional in US and UK racing) where 1 stone equals 14 pounds.

2. The distances are the actual distances between horses at the finish of the race.

3. All races are run at 1 mile in similar going and weather conditions and the time shown is the time taken by the winner to run the race.

4. 2 pounds slows a horse down by 1 length at the finish.

5. 1 second is equivalent to 5 lengths at the finish.


Task

All 9 of these horses, plus a further horse J, are due to compete against each other in Race 4 at Rosetta Park again over 1 mile and in similar conditions to the earlier races. Colts will carry 9.00 and fillies 8.11.

Suppose that:

1. Horse B has been moving well on the galops and her trainer thinks she has improved 4 pounds since her last outing.

2. Horse C has had a setback in training and his trainer expects him to perform 4 pounds below his best.

3. Horse H is being ridden by the champion jockey which is expected to improve his performance by 3 pounds compared to what it would otherwise have been.

4. Horse J, a filly, has never run before but her performance on the galops suggests she can run 1 mile in 1 minute 35.8 seconds when carrying 8.11.


Other things being equal (which they seldom are in actual horse racing!) what would you expect the full result of Race 4 to be including the time of the winner?
