Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A so, so day...

And nothing that I can really say about it.

We did get one big reverse Trifecta but...

That's about the only thing that sort of stands out.

I'm not often lost for words but...

I seem to be so, this morning.

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 23.53%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 22.86% from all 35 Races (including previously unrated races.)
