Notes:
Forster's crosstable has inconsistent entries for Beakbane (-) against Hill (1), and Herman (1) against Genn (-). I will guess that both games were played so that Beakbane's entry should be 0 against Hill, and Genn's entry should be 0 against Herman. I have set the odds classes in a strange way to force my system to assign the right odds between classes, since Burn had to give extra odds that were not consistent with just being one class above class 'I'.
