Latest Post - May 18, 2022 - Morning News – 2022/05/18

focus-ratings-morning-newsGood morning…

Overall, a very good day, yesterday.

When I first started Focus Ratings (upon which, most of my services are based) 9 years ago, we had a strike rate of 25% for our top rated horse.

As Focus Ratings is self-learning, the strike rate (for the top rated horse) improves by about 5% every year.

The first thing I check when I get up is the strike rate for the top rated horse; yesterday it was 35.71% which, obviously, means that the services that rely on Focus Ratings (such as Investment Betting, Precision Betting and so forth) were always going to do well.

And they did.

My changes to the overnight script seem to be working well and I’m sort of in control of when the various services start and get published – long may it last.

Please Tweet this to your followers so that they can share the goodness.

On our ratings, we show Unique Jockey/Trainer combinations (where it is the Jockey's only race in a meeting or a Trainer's only horse in a meeting; or both) and Going Wins, Going Places, Course-Distance-Going Wins (very important!), Change in Trainer and Change in Class (since last race) and so much more!

In addition to the normal morning ratings, we also automatically supply a preview of the ratings at 5pm the day before the race.

6620418Good morning…

Well…

As far as the R9 Portfolio bets were concerned, we were let down by Flyin Solo (Place Bet) which came 3rd.

Still, had you bet to the advised stakes you would have made 0.572 points profit to the 10 points staked assuming that you had bet the Chancers Bets.

So, not a total washout and…

If we are to get the stupendous results that we witnessed on Thursday, we also need to expect the less good days to compensate.

Now, although there won’t be a Morning News tomorrow, I shall be working all weekend to audit a new Win betting strategy for the R9 Portfolio selections; this will use the philosophy behind the Place betting strategies.

I will also start putting the historical selections and results online, working backwards from today.

In other news…

Just over a week a go I mentioned that, what used to be the Tourist Office next door to me, had moved across the market square to a more appropriate building. The vacant building next door to me was bought by a coupe who planned to turn it into a bar.

Well, the bar opened yesterday.

SDC10223

Now, on one hand, having a bar just 5 yards from your front door might seems like heaven; especially a bar that serves Pizza, Beer and Ice Cream.

On the other hand, it is surely going to be a temptation that might impinge on my workload.

We’ll have to see how it works out.

July 16, 2021 - Morning News – 16/07/2021

6620418Good morning…

The R9 Portfolio selections continue to amaze…

The top rated race (our Advised Bet) was the 14:10 at Chepstow where our selection was a Place Bet on Grandstand.

Grandstand came second with a place price of 3.74.

These are yesterday’s selections…

Race 1: Race Reward/Risk Ratio = 1.978

Chepstow – 14:10 – Grandstand – Place Bet (1.978)

Race 2: Race Reward/Risk Ratio = 0.415

Leicester – 14:23 – Mars Landing – Win Bet (0.611)

Leicester – 14:23 – Mars Landing – Place Bet (0.220)

Race 3: Race Reward/Risk Ratio = 0.712

Leicester – 15:53 – The Attorney – Win Bet (1.048)

Leicester – 15:53 – The Attorney – Place Bet (0.377)

Race 4: Race Reward/Risk Ratio = 0.718

Epsom – 20:20 – Otago – Win Bet (1.048)

Epsom – 20:20 – Otago – Place Bet (0.389)

Race 5: Race Reward/Risk Ratio = 0.394

Worcester – 20:30 – Kilchreest Moon – Place Bet (0.412)

Worcester – 20:30 – Buck’s Dream – Place Bet (0.377)
—————————————————————————————-

Advised Bet – 5 points bet on one race.

Race 1 – Chepstow – 14:10 – Grandstand (Place Bet) – 5 Points – 2nd @ 3.74 for the place

13.42 points profit on the 5 points staked.

Bankers Bets – 10 points bet on 2 races.

Race 1 – Chepstow – 14:10 – Grandstand (Place Bet) – 5.792 Points – 2nd @ 3.74 for the place

Race 4 – Epsom – 20:20 – Otago (Win Bet) – 3.068 Points – 1st @ 6.08 BSP

Race 4 – Epsom – 20:20 – Otago (Place Bet) – 1.139 Points – 1st @ 2.03 for the place

31.99 points profit to the 10 points staked.

Chancers Bets – 10 points bet on 3 races.

Race 1 – Chepstow – 14:10 – Grandstand (Place Bet) – 4.076 Points – 2nd @ 3.74 for the place

Race 3 – Leicester – 15:53 – The Attorney (Win Bet) – 2.159 Points – 1st @ 3.18 BSP

Race 3 – Leicester – 15:53 – The Attorney (Place Bet) – 0.776 Points – 1st @ 1.37 for the place

Race 4 – Epsom – 20:20 – Otago (Win Bet) – 2.159 Points – 1st @ 6.08 BSP

Race 4 – Epsom – 20:20 – Otago (Place Bet) – 0.861 Points – 1st @ 2.03 for the place

27.93 points profit to the 10 points staked.

Can you see…

Can you see why I am so excited about R9?

The three bet types allow people to manage risk and reward.

I have started going back through historical data but, only for the place selections.

Had you just used the best 3 place selections yesterday (and bet to level stakes, although I far prefer advised staking) you would have had 4.05 points profit (assuming a 2% commission) for your 3 points staked.

One of the strategies that just cries out to be looked at is to use a 10 point stake.

You then use the Chancers Bets place selections and bet 1 point on each of them to win.

The remaining 7 points are then shared over the 3 place bets but adjusted so that you are betting more on those selections with a higher Reward/Risk Ratio.

This would have worked very well yesterday.

From today I shall add a Place Bets section to the selections.

I’m a bit behind on my admin work but, if you are a Focus Ratings member you can get the R9 Portfolio selections email for free; just email me and I’ll put you on the list.

Members of Place Profits, EarlyBird Ratings and Intelligent Betting (full or free) can get these selections for just £10 a month once I’ve got my arse in gear and got the PayPal and Clickbank stuff set up.

In the meantime, for members of those services, if you want the selections, just let me know and I’ll put you on the list – it’ll be a sort of free trial.

Now, I know that this is a totally new way of betting – at least, I’ve never seen another service that does this sort of thing.

Thus, I do need to write a series of articles to explain the philosophy behind it and, how the selections are worked out.

But, before then…

I need to invent a 25 hour day and an 8 day week.

April 26, 2021 - Server Problems

6620418Good morning…

Well, that was painful.

I have finally got my server problems resolved.

Actually, it was nothing to do with the server; there was just a corrupt file.

This happens from time to time and that is why I run automatically Test Ratings at 2am. If they don’t work then I can log in to the server and fix the problem.

Today I tried to do that and couldn’t log in.

It turns out that the IP address of my server has changed and I was trying to log into the old IP address.

My hosting company swear that they sent me an email about the IP address change but I can’t find it anywhere.

Anyway…

I have kicked off the process of producing the ratings;

Advance Ratings should come out at about 10am, Focus Ratings at about 11am and Intelligent Betting at about 12:30pm.

As always…

My kindest regards

March 18, 2021 - Cheltenham – 2021 – Day 2

Cheltenham-2021Good morning…

I shall be doing an additional post every day of the Cheltenham Festival.

The object of these posts is to…

1). Determine which of the various ratings work best for festival bets and,

2). How accurate the Ante Post Ratings (created by the same formula that Advance Ratings use but 4 to 6 weeks in advance.)

In a way, they’ll be a sort of post mortum.

I’ll be honest, and I don’t want to put my own ratings down but…

I have some doubts about the value of ratings for festivals as there seem to be plenty of surprises at festivals.

I remember having a series of lengthy email conversations with one of my members 4 or 5 years ago when we both noticed some strange things at Goodwood that year.

If I remember rightly, 2 of the races were won by the bottom (or near bottom) rated horse.

But only in races where the late Khalid bin Abdullah Al Saud had two horses in the race.

One of the horses would be very highly rated but, weirdly enough, the low rated horse would win the race.

I remember us coming up with a number of conspiracy theories and…

Eventually incontrovertibly proving that 2 and 2 did, in fact, equal 5.

Thus, my slight misgiving about ratings for the really big races.

I never got to a full understanding of this phenomenon as, soon afterwards, the emails stopped coming and, then, Clickbank sent me a mail informing me that the credit card that that member used was no longer current; that generally means that the credit card has been cancelled (generally by the account owner or, a close family member.)

So, I’m guessing that my conspiracy theory partner is now at the great race course in the sky.

As I mentioned yesterday morning, in the future the publication date of the ratings will be displayed, as will the (on that date) ante post prices – probably the aggregate odd shown by Oddschecker.

To see any of the images displayed below, just click on them.
