Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, I haven't got too much to say this morning.

The strike rate for yesterday was fine but...

Our two place betting strategy selections did nothing (well, one came 3rd but in a race with only 6 declared runners.)

I spent most of the day looking at other/additional strategies for place betting as I like the idea of getting two, three (and sometimes, four) bites at the cherry.

I've got two angles which, on the face of it, look interesting but...

Nothing to report yet.

So, I'll make this quick and get back to crunching the numbers (coffee, croissants and spreadsheets for breakfast - a delightful combination.)

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 38.89%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 40%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 33.33% from all 21 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 30.98 units returned to 53 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -41.55%

Top Rated Horse - There were 7 winners from the top rated horses from 18 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 18.11 units returned to 18 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 0.61%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 2 winners from the second rated horses from 17 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 5.37 units returned to 17 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -68.41%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 1 winners from the third rated horses from 18 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 7.5 units returned to 18 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -58.33%
