Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Whilst the strike rate wasn't very good yesterday,

It would have been profitable to have blindly backed all top three rated horses.

This was mainly down to the performance of the second rated horse.

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 18.18%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 22.22%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 16.67% from all 36 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 135.54 units returned to 101 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 34.2%

Top Rated Horse - There were 6 winners from the top rated horses from 33 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 17.58 units returned to 33 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -46.73%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 10 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 87.58 units returned to 37 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 136.7%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the third rated horses from 31 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 30.38 units returned to 31 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -2%
