Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Yesterday showed no real surprises,

And, the day certainly ended far better than it started.

It still interests me that the results can vary from day to day;

There's got to be a reason for it but, for the life of me, I can't think what it might be.

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 22.92%.
