Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I do apologise for the slight lack of a Morning News yesterday...

No excuses, I just overslept (the work on the new server to identify ways of improving the strike rate has been a bit intense, recently.)

However, I'm up early today (no choice really as there is a party going on across the road. I'm not upset about that - young people have to enjoy themselves; I'm just a bit miffed that I wasn't invited!)

And I don't really have much to say about Thursday's results; what can I say?

A blistering strike rate and no real worries - just another really good day.

And, our Banker's Bet won as well!

Anyway, enough of 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 41.18%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 40.54%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 40.48% from all 42 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 104.86 units returned to 101 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 3.82%

Top Rated Horse - There were 14 winners from the top rated horses from 34 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 61.73 units returned to 34 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 81.56%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the second rated horses from 32 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 18 units returned to 32 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -43.75%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the third rated horses from 35 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 25.13 units returned to 35 units staked. The 3nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -28.2%
