Morning News – 14/08/2021

6620418Good morning...

Well, it seems to that time of the year again...

That time of the year when I'm rather happy that I'm not Jewish or Muslim or a Vegetarian or Vegan.

Not that I have any problems with any of those religions - I'm a pretty easy going guy but...

It's that time of the year where I do admit that I do like eating well cooked little bits of dead pig.

Yes, the Pig Roast has come to town.

SDC10164

It does this every year, around about this time.

Personally, I think that it's a Government plot to corrupt Vegetarians and Vegans but, I am kind of biased as I spent my first 8 years in France working in a Pig Abattoir.

As a result I got staff discount on our products and fully made the most use of that.

I do have to warn you that tomorrow, Sunday (15th of August) is a Bank Holiday but...

As I don't generally do a Morning News on Sundays, that shouldn't affect you.

Anyway - today my main priority is to try to get some work done whilst the pig is getting spit roasted across the market square.

That is going to be a major challenge but I shall do my best.

However, as I've had a hard start to the week (with my sleep problems), I shall also be doing some catch up work over the weekend.

Primarily, I shall be defining the new Focus Ratings R9 strategy so that you can all understand all the opportunities within.

Then, next week I'll be catching up on admin work but also trying to get on top of Spotlight Ratings and AntePost Ratings.

They have both suffered a bit over the last few months - I do need to catch up.

In a Ideal World...

In an ideal world...

Tomorrow I'll get my Skype machine working and I'll be more available to those of you who just want to have a chat.

The machine that I intend to use actually has a faulty sound card/circuit; that has wasted me an awful lot of time trying to diagnose the problem (you wouldn't believe how many hours that I have wasted) but I have bought an external USB sound card and that should solve the issue.


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 6.98%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 6.38%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 6.12% 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 79.34 units returned to 126 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -37.03%

Top Rated Horse - There were 3 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 12.58 units returned to 43 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -70.74%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 6 winners from the second rated horses from 40 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 42.16 units returned to 40 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 5.4%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 6 winners from the third rated horses from 43 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 24.6 units returned to 43 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -42.79%

Non Handicap Races - Top Rated Horse - There were 17 non-handicap races yesterday. From these races there were 1 Top Rated winners. Thus, the Strike Rate (for Top Rated Horses) was 5.88%

Top Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 2.75 units returned to 17 units staked. The Top Rated Non-Handicap Profit Index was, thus, -83.82%

Non Handicap Races - Top Three Rated Horses - There were 17 non-handicap races yesterday. From these races there were 5 Top Three Rated winners. Thus, the Strike Rate (for the Top Three Rated Horses) was 29.41%

Political Correctness...

Many thanks to Mike D. for this...

This is Priceless! Note reference to the "Mainstream Media"...72 years ago!

What is meant by the modern term referred to as "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS"... The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri .

The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and General Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945.

The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war - not a word has been added or deleted!

(1) Tokyo, Japan 0800-September 1,1945

To: President Harry S Truman

From: General D A MacArthur

Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last-minute instructions?

(2) Washington, D C 1300-September 1, 1945

To: D A MacArthur

From: H S Truman Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!

(3) Tokyo, Japan 1630-September 1, 1945

To: H S Truman

From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz

Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?

(4) Washington, D C 2120-September 1, 1945

To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz

From: H S Truman

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!

Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what 'POLITICAL CORRECTNESS' really means.
