Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

It's funny but...

I'm strangely disappointed that we only came in with a 30% strike rate yesterday.

During the afternoon, as I watched the results coming in I thought that we might do better than that.

Still 30% is nothing to sniff at so I can't complain.

And, two out of our four place betting strategy selections won so it's not too bad.

Just a reminder; I shall not be sending out the Place Betting Strategy selections any more as they are now on the morning ratings email (option 21.)

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 30.3%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 26.47%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 27.78% 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 90.3 units returned to 96 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -5.94%

Top Rated Horse - There were 10 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 25.14 units returned to 33 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -23.82%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the second rated horses from 32 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 41.66 units returned to 32 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 30.19%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 2 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 23.5 units returned to 31 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -24.19%

Place Betting Strategy

After eleven days we are running at a strike rate of 40.00% (16 winners from 40 selections) and have had 48.702 points returned to 42 points staked (assuming a Betfair commission of 5%.)
