Morning News – 18/03/2021

6620418Good morning...

Once again, I'm not going to waffle on about Cheltenham...

As I've already done that on a review post which you may read here... http://focusratings.com/articles/cheltenham-2021-day-2/

I will be doing a round up post on Sunday to try to work out what we have learned.

I've published a page to handle all things R8 related.

It is visible on the site at... R8

And, in case you didn't get an email from Intelligent Betting yesterday,

I've also published an article about how I bet on horses in France. You can see it at... Bet The Race, Not The Horse

Spotlight Ratings

There are two Listed races at Chantilly today.

One is Flat Turf and the other Flat AW.

The prices look good.

I'll send out the ratings to the SpotLight Ratings members (free to Focus Ratings, Early Bird Ratings and Place Profits members - you just have to ask to be added to the list) as soon as they are finished. The first race starts at 13:05.

I have updated the format of the PDFs and now include the chart to show the shape of the race.

Although they are outside my comfort zone, I will be betting on both races.

spotlight1

In the first race, it is obvious that the top rated horse is very much ahead of the pack and the next four highest rated horses are significantly ahead of the remaining six horses.

As it is an experiment, I shall be betting 1.50 euros on the top rated horse to win and 3.0 euros on the top rated horse to be placed.
I shall also be betting 1.50 euros on a Multi 5; this means that I need to get the top five in the first 5 places in any order.

spotlight2

The second race is, in many respects, very similar and I shall be betting it in exactly the same way.

These are far simpler bets than I normally and, a bit of does say that I should also place bet the 2nd to 5th rated horses, certainly in the second race but...

I just don't feel comfortable with that.

Obviously I will check what would have happened if I had done that.


Task List...

In order to be honest and truly transparent with you...

I will now be publishing my task list on the Morning News.

You will be able to see what I am working on and, more importantly, what progress I am making.

Here are the current tasks...

T01). Work out a number of strategies to utilise R8 and provide Focus Rating members free Portfolio Betting selections across a number of different betting strategies (win backing, place backing, dutching, laying and, the other thing that I described that I don't know what it is called) on a daily basis.

T02). For Compass Ratings, display, on screen and via a email PDF, the twice weekly updated trainer/jockey win/place strike rates.

T03). For Compass Ratings, complete the eBook that explains all the weird and wonderful things that I have learned about Hong Kong Horse racing.

T04). Complete PaperTradeIt.com - a free site where you can privately log your bets and get Strike Rate, POI (to ISP and BSP) data and losing run analysis on those bets.

T05). Re-launch Intelligent-Betting.com - very good good things are happening there as we speak and it is becoming a vital (and also, very profitable) tool for those who like to think about their betting.

I'm trying to knock off the easy/quick jobs first in order to reduce the size of the list; the size of the list scares me sometimes and, believe me, I have twice as many jobs on the Admin/BAU (Business As Usual - things like automated scripts, backups and server log file analysis - stuff that all website owners have to do) task list to get through as well.

Something to make you smile...

Skyscraper...

Two men were sitting at a bar at the top of a skyscraper.

Both were bending their elbows at a steady rate.

The first man said, "You know, there's such an updraft on the outside of this building, that if you jump off, you'll fall for a bit, but the updraft will catch you, and bring you right back up to this balcony.

The second guy said, "I don't believe it, you'll have to prove this to me."

So the first guy goes over the balcony and jumps off.

He falls and falls and falls, and then he slows in mid drop, and begins rising back up.

Finally, he lightly steps back onto the balcony.

"See, I told you," he says.

The second guy says, "I've got to try that."

So he jumps off the balcony, and falls and falls and falls and falls. Finally, splat on the ground.

The first guy returns to the bar and orders another drink.

As he serves the drink, the bartender says, "You're a mean drunk, Superman."
