Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Another decent day, yesterday...

With the strike rate (for the top rated horse) a smidgin off 30%.

Not such a good day for our new Place Betting strategy with all three selections failing to perform.

However, the good news is that I am close to finishing an improved version of the strategy and should be able to get a post out today to explain this.

Anyway, I'll get to 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 29.17%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 28.3%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 26.92% from all 52 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 133.99 units returned to 154 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -12.99%

Top Rated Horse - There were 14 winners from the top rated horses from 48 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 45.49 units returned to 48 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -5.23%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the second rated horses from 52 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 42 units returned to 52 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -19.23%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the third rated horses from 54 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 46.5 units returned to 54 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -13.89%
