Morning News – 08/05/2021

6620418Good morning...

Today is a Bank Holiday over here in France.

And so...

I shall be taking the day off.

I do make a point of doing this as, otherwise, my job is 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year - apart from 3 or 4 days off at Christmas.

Just a heads up...

Next Thursday is also a day off and,

There are 2 more Bank Holidays in May to come after that.

I like May!


Intelligent Betting

Based upon the observation of how well R9 works for Focus Ratings...

Yesterday I decided to take a look at RSR (Really Simple Ratings) at Intelligent Betting.

Now, it is quite rare that I can rate every horse in a race with RSR but,

Initial analysis showed me if I just look at those races where I can rate 92% (or more) of all horses in a race (that's about 11 horses in a 12 horse race) then backing the top rated horses in those races is blindly profitable.

Generally there are 5 such races every day.

Today I shall be creating an RSR Plus PDF showing just those races where I can rate 92% (or more) of all horses in each race.

I am not sure if I can get the link to the PDF on the morning email that full members get but, if I can't do that in time, I will send the RSR Plus ratings PDF to all full members manually.

This is an important discovery...

If you start with 5 races a day that are blindly profitable to bet the top rated horse on,

Then it is easy to put in a few logical filters to give you 2 or 3 selections every day that are even more profitable.

On another note...

On the front page of the website we say that we listen to our members and try to react to their requests.

Yesterday Roy mentioned to me that one of our members had suggested that we do the ratings in course order as well as in time order.

This will be done, sort of.

Early next week (bearing in mind that today is a Bank Holiday and tomorrow is my day off) I shall write some code so that individual ratings PDFs are produced for each meeting (as well as the normal time order ratings PDF.)

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 R9 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). For Compass Ratings, display, on screen and via a email PDF, the twice weekly updated trainer/jockey win/place strike rates.

T03). For Compass Ratings, complete the eBook that explains all the weird and wonderful things that I have learned about Hong Kong Horse racing.

T04). 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.

T05). 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.


Focus Ratings

Here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format... Yesterday's Traffic Light Results

Yesterday's Results, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 13.95%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 12.77%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 12.24% from all 49 Races (including previously unrated races.)

The Overall Profit Index. If you had blindly backed every top three rated horse in all of the races you would have had 82.67 units returned to 133 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -37.84%

Top Rated Horse - There were 6 winners from the top rated horses from 43 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 17.7 units returned to 43 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -58.84%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the second rated horses from 46 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 33.28 units returned to 46 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -27.65%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the third rated horses from 44 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 31.69 units returned to 44 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -27.98%

Non Handicap Races - Top Rated Horse - There were 14 non-handicap races yesterday. From these races there were 3 Top Rated winners. Thus, the Strike Rate (for Top Rated Horses) was 21.43%

Top Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 5.08 units returned to 14 units staked. The Top Rated Non-Handicap Profit Index was, thus, -63.71%

Something to make you smile...

Dating...

The mother of a 17-year-old girl was concerned that her daughter was having sex.

Worried the girl might become pregnant and adversely impact the family's status, she consulted the family doctor. The doctor told her that teenagers today were very willful and any attempt to stop the girl would probably result in rebellion. He then told her to arrange for her daughter to be put on birth control and until then, talk to her and give her a box of condoms.

Later that evening, as her daughter was preparing for a date, the woman told her about the situation and handed her a box of condoms.

The girl burst out laughing and reached over to hug her mother saying:

"Oh Mom! You don't have to worry about that! I'm dating Susan!"
