Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

An average day's racing, yesterday.

Even with the less than impressive results, we are still running a monthly strike rate of 28.47%

And that's pretty weird for April.

Especially when compared to our average 2015 strike rate of 26.12%

And it's not far off my target strike rate of 30%.

I've been working on some background code that I need in order to update the Builder and I hope that all Builder winter upgrades will be finished by Monday afternoon.

Anyway, I'll get to that, firstly let's get on and take a quick look at yesterday's results in more detail....

Yesterday's Results

Yesterday's Results, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 24.14%.

The Overall Profit Index. If you had blindly backed every top three rated horse in all of the races you would have had 48.27 units returned to 92 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -47.53%

Top Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 17.41 units returned to 29 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -39.97%

2nd Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the second rated horse in all of the races you would have had 9.67 units returned to 32 units staked. The Second Rated Profit Index was, thus, -69.78%

Today's early test ratings show 28 rated races from four meetings.

The ratings seems to have missed Wexford today. I'll try to fix this before the normal ratings go out.

Have a great day's racing!
