Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Another pretty wonderful day for our top rated horse with a Strike rate of just a smidgen off 40%.

This leaves us with a strike rate (for the top rated horse) of slightly more than 30% for the month of July, so far.

I've said before that the ratings are self learning but...

This is starting to get a bit weird.

Still, I'm not complaining.

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 39.47%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 38.46%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 37.5% from all 40 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 118.47 units returned to 111 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 6.73%

Top Rated Horse - There were 15 winners from the top rated horses from 38 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 48.71 units returned to 38 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 28.18%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the second rated horses from 36 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 36.33 units returned to 36 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 0.92%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the third rated horses from 37 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 33.43 units returned to 37 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -9.65%
