Once again, I have started looking at the possibility of place betting the Investment Betting selections as well as win betting them.

This won't get us any more winners but it will reduce the cost of the losing selections; thus making the overall service more profitable.

I have started a spreadsheet which shows the effect.


I have done some more work and can show that, over the last 3 months, starting with a £200 (20 point) bank and betting to £10 stakes, the Win portion of the system finishes up with a final bank of £409.78 (assuming a 2% commission.)

The Place bets are less profitable (as to be expected because of the lower prices) and finishes up at £249.40

However, if you use a £200 bank to bet both systems, after 3 months (since I moved the service to R10 from R8) we have turned a £200 bank into a final bank of £459.17

I have one more task to perform today; I need to look at which race types we shouldn't be place betting the selections for; there may be none but I do have to check.

If you want to take a look at the (unfinished) spreadsheet, email me at and I'll send you a copy.

If you are a Focus Ratings member you are entitled to Investment Betting selections for free.

Otherwise they are £25:00 a month - that's not too bad for a service which has more than doubled its bank in just 3 months.

I'll try to work out how to explain the philosophy behind the strategy for tomorrow morning.

Something to make you smile...

I'm Married!

Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after attending his company's party. He is not normally a drinker, but the drinks didn't taste like alcohol at all. He didn't even remember how he got home from the party. As bad as he was feeling, he wondered if he did something wrong.

He forced himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table. And, next to them, a single red rose!!

He sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all cleaned and pressed! He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotlessly clean. So is the rest of the house.

He takes the aspirins, cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror. Then he notices a note hanging on the corner of the mirror written in red with little hearts on it and a kiss mark from his wife in lipstick: 'Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to get groceries to make you your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling! Love, Jillian'

He stumbles to the kitchen and sure enough, there is hot breakfast, steaming hot coffee and the morning newspaper.
His 16 year old son is also at the table, eating. Jack asks, 'Son. what happened last night?'

'Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and out of your mind. You fell over the coffee table and broke it, and then you puked in the hallway, and got that black eye when you ran into the door.'

Confused, he asked his son, 'So, why is everything in such perfect order and so clean? I have a rose, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me??'

His son replies, 'Oh THAT... Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you screamed, 'Leave me alone, I'm married!!'








Whatever you are up to today...

Stay safe and healthy.

As always...

My kindest regards
