Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Not too much to say about yesterday...

A reasonable strike rate (for the top rated horse) of 36.36%.

Our Bankers Bet lost but our Chancers Bet won at 18.0 ISP (23.57 BSP.)

We only got 2 out of 5 for the Place Betting Strategy but, in the 4th race of the day we got a placed horse that paid 7.6 for the place and, thus, we'd made a profit on the day just from that one.

The other one was just an added extra.

If you'd done the forecast in every race, you would have had £73.92 returned to £35.00 staked (in other words, you'd have doubled your money.)

Anyway, I'll get to that, firstly let's get on and take a quick look at yesterday's results in more detail....
