Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A bit of a strange day for me yesterday as a lot of the little 5 minutes jobs that I had planned...

All ended up taking far longer than they should.

Which meant that I didn't get all the stuff done.

Still, these things happen and today's another day.

Overall the day was quite reasonable and nothing really stood out to my eyes.

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 23.33%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 28.57%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 20% from all 35 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 65.65 units returned to 95 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -30.89%

Top Rated Horse - There were 7 winners from the top rated horses from 30 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 17.39 units returned to 30 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -42.03%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 7 winners from the second rated horses from 33 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 23.6 units returned to 33 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -28.48%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the third rated horses from 32 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 24.66 units returned to 32 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -22.94%
