Morning News

focus-ratings-morning newsGood morning...

OK, I've got to admit it...

Wine O'Clock did arrive slightly early yesterday!

And that's after a promise to myself that I'd be a good boy, Monday and Tuesday as I'd been a bit of a piggy over the weekend!

I got back from a shopping trip and started to update the results and...

The smile on my face got bigger and bigger until I decided that I'd better get the corkscrew out before the top part of my head fell off!

Preventive medicine, in other words!

But, you know, I'm struggling a bit to find anything specific to say about yesterday other than the slightly good 46.15% strike rate for the top rated horse.

Apart from, that is, that 4 out of the 6 non-handicap races (taking the 2 non-runners into account) were won by the top rated horse.

So, 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 46.15%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 44.83%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 41.38% from all 29 Races (including previously unrated races.)

2nd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the second rated horses from 26 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 29.35 units returned to 26 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 12.88%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 0 winners from the third rated horses from 28 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 0 units returned to 28 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -100%
