Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, what can I say?

Another blistering day for the ratings yesterday.

I didn't actually watch the ratings come in but...

What a surprise to see the strike rate for the top rated horse come in at 35.90%

That's not supposed to happen in April!

Still, I'm not complaining.

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 35.9%.

The Overall Profit Index. If you had blindly backed every top three rated horse in all of the races you would have had 94.99 units returned to 113 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -15.94%

Top Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 44.99 units returned to 39 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 15.36%

2nd Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the second rated horse in all of the races you would have had 6.5 units returned to 39 units staked. The Second Rated Profit Index was, thus, -83.33%

3nd Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the third rated horse in all of the races you would have had 43.5 units returned to 35 units staked. The Third Rated Profit Index was, thus, 24.29%
