Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

So, a pretty decent day for us.

Our Bankers bet won at a decent price.

Our two PBS selections both came 2nd and we made a nice profit on the day.

And you could have either done the forecast or the reverse forecast on every race and made a profit.

You can't ask for better than that.

Today I'm going to be busy preparing for some major code upgrades that I intend to implement tomorrow.

It'll either work first time or...

It'll all go horribly wrong.

It'll be one or the other.

I've heard that Sky Bet also take Place Betting multiple bets and have contacted them to see if they can do a special offer for us so that we can do a Trixie on the PBS selections.

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 35.9%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 35%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 35.71% from all 42 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 83.25 units returned to 115 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -27.61%

Top Rated Horse - There were 14 winners from the top rated horses from 39 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 48.21 units returned to 39 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 23.62%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 4 winners from the second rated horses from 35 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 18.75 units returned to 35 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -46.43%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 4 winners from the third rated horses from 41 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 16.29 units returned to 41 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -60.27%
