Morning News – 16/10/2020

6620418Good morning...

Today I shall be largely working on Place Profits.

When I launched Place Profits in February of this year it was a cast iron system which gave a more than decent return on stakes as long as the previous 2 years strike rate of 80% was upheld.

However, this year has been an incredibly difficult year for systematic approaches to horse racing selections.

The 10 weeks of no racing have really changed the structure of our races.

This has affected the results for Place Profits.

Today I shall be looking at additional filters to return Place Profits to its rightful place as a decent, long term, profitable long term strategy.

I will, additionally, be looking at the possibility of splitting the stake so that 80% goes on the place bet and 20% goes on a win bet...

Or, perhaps, it should be a 70%/30% split?

Whatever I come up with today...

I shall return Place Profits to long term profitability.

At this point I should also mention Early Bird Ratings and its built in Diamonds and Gold system.

From yesterday evening I am not publishing the Diamonds selections; only the Diamonds and Gold selections.

In September 2020 we had 79 selections.

Of those, 17 were Diamonds selections and 62 were Diamonds and Gold selections.

From the Diamonds selections we got 4 winners from the 17 selections...

That equates to a strike rate of 23.53%

From the 62 Diamonds and Gold selections we got 25 winners.

That equates to a strike rate of 40.32%

Thus, I shall only be publishing (and proofing) the Diamonds and Gold selections from now on.

Any systematic approach to horse racing can vary over time.

What worked last year may work less well this year.

When we face a totally different year, in terms of horse racing, due to Covid 19 and all the related restrictions...

It doesn't hurt to re-visit any systems and try to improve them in order to take recent events into account.

I will make Place Profits profitable again and...

I will make Early Bird Ratings Diamonds and Gold even more profitable.

On a personal note...

It has now been 8 whole days since I've had any coffee or wine.

It seems like 8 years!

Actually, I'm missing caffeine more than alcohol.

I am about to chew my fingers off!

Am really starting to miss Wine O'Clock as well.

I'm not really sure that my doctor knows what he's talking about?

On a positive angle....

I am actually sleeping longer.

I'm not too sure that I'm sleeping better but,

Without my morning caffeine infusion,

I'm still feeling very tired.

I do have to say that I'm actually getting far more work done so...

It can't be all bad.

Health Advice...

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable slop.

Q: Is beer or wine bad for me?

A: Look, it goes to the earlier point about fruits and vegetables. As we all know, scientists divide everything in the world into three categories: animal, mineral, and vegetable. We all know that beer and wine are not animal, and they are not on the periodic table of elements, so that only leaves one thing, right? My advice: Have a burger and a beer and enjoy your liquid vegetables.

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A: Well, if you have a body, and you have body fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

Q: At the gym, a guy asked me to "spot" for him while he did the bench press. What did he mean?

A: "Spotting" for someone means you stand over him while he blows air up your shorts. It's an accepted practice at health clubs; though if you find that it becomes the ONLY reason why you're going in, you probably ought to reevaluate your exercise program.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?

A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain-No Pain.

Q: If I stop smoking, will I live longer?

A: Nope. Smoking is a sign of individual expression and peace of mind. If you stop, you'll probably stress yourself to death in record time.

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?

A: You're not listening. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Q: What's the secret to healthy eating?

A: Thicker gravy.

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about trying to live a longer and healthier life...
