Morning News – 09/08/02021

6620418Good morning...

What should have been a nice quiet weekend...

Actually involved quite a lot of work.

My new Admin system (which is supposed to make my life easier) has been causing me a few problems.

They are all logical problems and, once sorted out, they won't re-occur.

Teething problems, in other words.

I've also been taking a look at the Focus Ratings R9 Portfolio selections...

I'm quite happy with the Place Betting option; yesterday we had the normal 5 best Place Betting Bets of the day.

R9 Portfolio Place Selections

Place Bets - 10 Points bet on top 5 Place selections.

Race 2 - Windsor - 14:05 - Joi Choi (Place Bet) - 2.29 Points - 2nd @ 1.28 (0.6283 points profit)
Race 2 - Windsor - 14:05 - Molly Shaw (Place Bet) - 1.40 Points - NR
Race 3 - Downpatrick - 14:40 - Natural Breeze (Place Bet) - 1.96 Points - 4th @ 1.75 (1.4406 points profit)
Race 4 - Leicester - 14:50 - Whitehaven (Place Bet) - 2.49 Points - NR
Race 5 - Curragh - 16:10 - Go Bears Go (Place Bet) - 1.83 Points - 3rd @ 1.27 (0.4842)

As you can see, 2 of those were non-runners.

The remaining 3 bets were all successfully placed.

2.5531 point profit was made to the 6.11 points staked (taking the non-runners into account.)

I am looking at a number of filters to further improve the performance of the Place Betting selections but, also,

I have decided to change the philosophy behind the Advised Bet and the Bankers Bet so that they no longer are based upon the races with highest Race Reward/Risk Ratios but, instead, are the two safest races of the day.

The Chancers Bet will remain as those three races with the highest Race Reward/Risk Ratios.

This sort of brings the selections/strategy in line with the original Portfolio selections (now discontinued) that I launched back in 2014.

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.

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 18.18%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 25.93%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 11.76% from all 34 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 76.75 units returned to 71 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 8.1%

Top Rated Horse - There were 4 winners from the top rated horses from 22 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 17.38 units returned to 22 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -21%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the second rated horses from 23 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 34.25 units returned to 23 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 48.91%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 6 winners from the third rated horses from 26 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 25.12 units returned to 26 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -3.38%

Non Handicap Races - Top Rated Horse - There were 12 non-handicap races yesterday. From these races there were 2 Top Rated winners. Thus, the Strike Rate (for Top Rated Horses) was 16.67%

Top Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 8.38 units returned to 12 units staked. The Top Rated Non-Handicap Profit Index was, thus, -30.17%

Non Handicap Races - Top Three Rated Horses - There were 12 non-handicap races yesterday. From these races there were 8 Top Three Rated winners. Thus, the Strike Rate (for the Top Three Rated Horses) was 66.67%

Parachuting...

A blind man was describing his favorite sport, parachuting.

When asked how this was accomplished, he said that things were all done for him:

"I am placed in the door and told when to jump."

"My hand is placed on my release ring for me, and out I go."

"But how do you know when you are going to land?" he was asked.

"I have a very keen sense of smell and I can smell the trees and grass when I am 300 feet from the ground" he answered.

"But how do you know when to lift your legs for the final arrival on the ground?" he was again asked.

He quickly answered "Oh, the dog's leash goes slack".
