SkyForm Ratings are DFS Ratings (Daily Form Service) which is form provided to Sky Racing from an external company (similar to champion data which provide all of the AFL stats). The DFS Ratings appear on the old SkyForm page, and the new SkyForm: under the 'Rating' column, and also at the bottom of the page (SkyForm, Class, Time Rating, Distance,Best Overall etc)
This is a prediction service from Sky Racing's form experts including Michael Fraser. The form experts make ratings for both Wet and Dry tracks. They base on recent form, class, field strength, time ratings, distance, recent form and many other factors.
Class refers to the type of race a runner has previously raced in. Based on the previous class a runner has raced in, FS = Field Strength determines how a particular runner is rated in the field of that particular class of race.

To watch a replay in SkyForm you need to be subscribed and logged into the Media Centre. Then select a particular race meeting, click on the + symbol and open a race, then open a particular runner who's race replays you wish to view then select the green oval that appears under that runners name on the right hand side of the page.
Alternatively a faster way is to click on the Search tab at the top of the page in SkyForm, Chose a racing type, chose a date range to search between, and then enter your search values (search a particular runner, track, trainer, race, jockey/driver).
If you're trying to do this from the Sky website - you can click on runners name and search replays that way or type your search values into the 'Racing Search' module on the Watch page.
Technically no - however there are links on all upcoming races that say "Bet Now" in green and this will link you through to that particular race on the TAB.com.au website where bets can be placed.
