Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

As far as I can see...

Yesterday was a pretty decent day with a reasonable strike rate and it would have been profitable to have blindly backed all top three rated horses (although you'd have to mad mad to want to do so.)

I've been busy working on my new Place Betting strategy and I've written a post about that.

I can't say too much about yesterday as I am champing at the bit to get on and write some code to produce a PDF which just lists the selections for that strategy (far easier for me to read)..

So, 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 25.64%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 23.81%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 23.81% 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 133.57 units returned to 120 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 11.31%

Top Rated Horse - There were 10 winners from the top rated horses from 39 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 39.33 units returned to 39 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 0.85%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 11 winners from the second rated horses from 37 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 56.88 units returned to 37 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 53.73%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the third rated horses from 44 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 37.36 units returned to 44 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -15.09%

Place Betting Strategy

I had quite a lot to say about my Place Betting Strategy and so, I've written a post about it.

I published this post this morning and you can see it here...

I shall be continuing my work on this strategy today and will publish a new spreadsheet with the additional filters.


Today's early test ratings show 32 rated races from six meetings.

That means that there are 10 unrated races; I need to look into this but I do have the feeling that it's down to 2 year olds races which I find difficult to rate. I seem to remember this happened last year and the year before. Anyway, I'll double check in in any case.

Have a great day's racing!
