Morning News – 04/03/2021

6620418Good morning...

Yesterday was another productive day all round...

I guess that it's best to start with a success;

Compass Ratings

The new Compass Ratings Plus (CPR+) showed its value by picking up one more top rated winner than the standard ratings (CPR.)

This makes a big difference to the overall profitability.

Now, over the next few days I shall be doing some analysis on the "weighting" factor of the Jockey Win Strike Rate.

So, at the moment, if a jockey has a win strike rate of 15%, that equates to 0.15 in decimal terms.

I add 1 to that to end up with 1.15

I then multiply the horses CPR by that to end up with CPR+.

That is a good start but, after analysis I will be able to come up with the optimum weighting factor.

It could be that, if a jockey has a win strike rate of 15%, I convert that to decimal (0.15) and then multiply that by 2 (or 1.68 or q.54, for example.)

I need to run a query (which is going to take hours and hours) to identify the weighting factor that, historically (over 3 years of data) proves optimal.

Early Bird Ratings

I managed to get the new Early Bird Ratings Plus working yesterday.

The whole process is automated and, from today, the new ratings (as well as the existing ratings will be sent out.)

The EBR+ ratings for today (generated yesterday evening) may be seen here... EarlyBird Plus Ratings - 04/03/2021

I've also...

At long last,

Automated the Diamonds and Gold selections process.

Normally I manually compute these selections.

Having it automated is far safer.

I seem to have become my Grandpa.

My Grandpa was a Cornish farmer. After he retired he would, often, after lunch, sit in his favourite easy chair and start to read. After a minute or so he would be snoring.

Granny would comment...

"Grandpa is reading with his eyes closed again."

I think it took him about 3 years to read Frenchman's Creek.

He could go a whole week without turning a single page.

Because I get up very early, I find that, these days, that often happens to me as well.

I must be getting old.

Having the Diamonds and Gold selections produced automatically means that, if that happens, you'll still get your selections on time.

I have also produced new system selections based upon Early Bird Plus Ratings; these are called Platinum selections.

Task List...

In order to be honest and truly transparent with you...

I will now be publishing my task list on the Morning News.

You will be able to see what I am working on and, more importantly, what progress I am making.

Here are the current tasks...

T01). Work out a number of strategies to utilise R8 and provide Focus Rating members free Portfolio Betting selections across a number of different betting strategies (win backing, place backing, dutching, laying and, the other thing that I described that I don't know what it is called) on a daily basis.

T02). Produce Early Bird Plus Ratings by compiling the Advance Ratings in the afternoon of the day before race day and then combining them with Early Bird Ratings in the evening of the day befoe race day in order to produce a more accurate ratings set and also to produce Platinum selections (based upon those new ratings) to accompany and, ultimately, potentially replace the current Diamonds and Gold selections.

Update... - The Early Bird Plus ratings are now automatically produced.

T03). For Compass Ratings, display, on screen and via a email PDF, the twice weekly trainer/jockey win/place strike rates.

T04). For Compass Ratings, complete the eBook that explains all the weird and wonderful things that I have learned about Hong Kong Horse racing.

T05). Complete PaperTradeIt.com - a free site where you can privately log your bets and get Strike Rate, POI (to ISP and BSP) data and losing run analysis on those bets.

T06). Re-launch Intelligent-Betting.com - very good good things are happening there as we speak and it is becoming a vital (and also, very profitable) tool for those who like to think about their betting.

I'm trying to knock off the easy/quick jobs first in order to reduce the size of the list; the size of the list scares me sometimes and, believe me, I have twice as many jobs on the Admin/BAU (Business As Usual - things like automated scripts, backups and server log file analysis - stuff that all website owners have to do) task list to get through as well.

Something to make you smile...

Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, and Quasimodo...

Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, and Quasimodo were all talking one day.

Sleeping Beauty said, "I believe myself to be the most beautiful girl in the world."

Tom Thumb said, "I must be the smallest person in the world."

Quasimodo said, "I absolutely have to be the most disgusting person in the world."

So they all decided to go to the Guinness Book of World Records to have their claims verified.

Sleeping Beauty went in first and came out looking deliriously happy. "It's official, I AM the most beautiful girl in the world."

Tom Thumb went next and emerged triumphant, "I am now officially the smallest person in the world."

Sometime later, Quasimodo comes out looking utterly confused and says."Who the hell is Rosie O'Donnell ?
