Are there any 'rules of thumb' are as to what the ratio of a 1 rep max snatch should be to your 1 rep max clean and jerk?

For example, if I can clean and jerk 100kg, what should I aim for in the snatch?

Cheers

Jerry

Something similar but simpler is here:

which calculates it based on percentages of world records in your weight class, I think.
