Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Although a reasonable day, I was sort of looking at yesterday's results with my non-handicap hat on.

From the 15 non-handicaps we got 7 winners and I have a funny feeling that that's a pretty good place to start looking for a strategy from.

After all, if you're starting with a 46.66% strike rate then...

A few simple and logical filters might make quite a nice little system or strategy.

Still, that'll have to wait until I get back from England.

I'm off to get the ferry in a few hours time and won't be answering emails until I get back on Sunday.

For the last two weeks the ratings have gone out without any problems and I don't anticipate any problems over the next few days; I will have my laptop with me, just in case but I guess that I'll have other things on my mind.

Anyway, 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 26.67%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 25%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 22.22% from all 36 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 62.27 units returned to 87 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -28.43%

Top Rated Horse - There were 8 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 25.77 units returned to 30 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -14.1%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 7 winners from the second rated horses from 30 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 29.5 units returned to 30 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -1.67%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 1 winners from the third rated horses from 27 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 7 units returned to 27 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -74.07%
