Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A bit of a nightmare day for me, yesterday.

Although, the ratings seemed to do their job and we ended up with a reasonable strike rate for the top rated horse.

My issues were more down to an ISP that was not able to connect me to my server (in a data center in Germany), an overheating laptop and a router that saw all the confusion going on and decided to give up the ghost.

It all got resolved in the end but it was a day wasted on boring stuff rather than the real work.

So, I guess that that mean working over the weekend so that I can catch up.

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 28.26%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 27.08%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 27.08% from all 48 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 114.35 units returned to 135 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -15.3%

Top Rated Horse - There were 13 winners from the top rated horses from 46 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 40.03 units returned to 46 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -12.98%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the second rated horses from 44 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 40.74 units returned to 44 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -7.41%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 6 winners from the third rated horses from 45 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 33.58 units returned to 45 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -25.38%
