Morning News

focus-ratings-morning newsGood morning...

A so, so day with no stand out elements that I can really talk about.

However, the good news is that the first part of the last stage of the Speed Ratings was put into place yesterday and,

If it has worked (and I won't know until the ratings come out), then I shall be able to move those calculations from 10am to 4am.

This will mean that the ratings will come out between 30 to 40 minutes earlier than they normally do.

It will also allow me to implement a Horse Lookup page where you can see the past ratings (normal and speed) for any horse.

Ideally, I shall also be able to plot a graph on that page, showing the changes in speed ratings for a horse.

And, no that this work has been done...

For those of you who have been very patient, I shall also be able to produce the SPeed Ratings in CSV format.

Anyway, that all depends on whether yesterday's work worked. 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 21.88%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 22.22%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 22.03% from all 59 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 94.26 units returned to 96 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -1.81%

Top Rated Horse - There were 7 winners from the top rated horses from 32 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 27.63 units returned to 32 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -13.66%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 10 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 44.38 units returned to 33 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 34.48%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the third rated horses from 31 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 22.25 units returned to 31 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -28.23%
