Morning News – 20/04/2021

6620418Good morning...

Today I shall largely be concentrating on getting Compass Ratings fixed.

I'm not sure what I have inadvertently done to cause the drop in accuracy so...

I am going to compare all the code with the code for Advance Ratings (they should be identical),

Line by line.

I bet that I'll find a full stop or a comma where there shouldn't be.


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 mem height="746"bers 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.


Focus Ratings

Here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format... Yesterday's Traffic Light Results

Yesterday's Results, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 23.26%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 20.41%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 19.61% from all 51 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 136.4 units returned to 137 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -0.44%

Top Rated Horse - There were 10 winners from the top rated horses from 43 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 21.25 units returned to 43 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -50.58%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 10 winners from the second rated horses from 46 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 61.15 units returned to 46 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 32.93%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the third rated horses from 48 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 54 units returned to 48 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 12.5%

Non Handicap Races - Top Rated Horse - There were 18 non-handicap races yesterday. From these races there were 7 Top Rated winners. Thus, the Strike Rate (for Top Rated Horses) was 38.89%

Top Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 11.63 units returned to 18 units staked. The Top Rated Non-Handicap Profit Index was, thus, -35.39%

Non Handicap Races - Top Three Rated Horses - There were 18 non-handicap races yesterday. From these races there were 13 Top Three Rated winners. Thus, the Strike Rate (for the Top Three Rated Horses) was 72.22%

Something to make you smile...

Dogs Pet Peeves About Humans...

1. When you run away in the middle of a perfectly good leg humping.

2. Blaming your farts on me...not funny...not funny at all.

3. Yelling at me for barking... I'M A FRIGGIN' DOG YOU IDIOT!!

4. How you naively believe that the stupid cat isn't all over everything while you're gone. (Have you noticed that your toothbrush tastes a little like cat butt?)

5. Taking me for a walk, then not letting me check stuff out. Exactly who's walk is this anyway?

6. Any trick that involves balancing food on my nose...stop it.

7. Yelling at me for rubbing my ass on your carpet. Why'd you buy carpet?

8. Getting upset when I sniff the crotches of your guests. Sorry but I haven't quite mastered that handshake thing yet...idiot.

9. How you act disgusted when I lick myself. Look, we both know the truth, you're just jealous.

10. Dog sweaters. Have you noticed the fur? Imbecile.

11. Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons. Now you know why we chew your shit up when you're not home.

12. When you pick up the crap piles in the yard. Do you realize how far behind schedule that puts me?

13. Taking me to the vet for "the big snip", then acting surprised when I freak out everytime we go back.

14. The sleight of hand, fake fetch throw. You fooled a dog! What a proud moment for the top of the food chain, you nitwit.

15. Invisible fences. Why do you insist on screwing with us? To my knowledge, dogdom hasn't yet solved the visible fence problem!!
