Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Another reasonably good day, yesterday and...

We did well on the Place Betting Strategy selections.

You would have made a profit by blindly doing the forecast in every race,

Or, indeed, the combination trifecta.

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 24.32%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 26.32%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 0% from all 38 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 94.22 units returned to 106 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -11.11%

Top Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the top rated horses from 37 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 35.59 units returned to 37 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -3.81%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 6 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 30.75 units returned to 33 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -6.82%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the third rated horses from 36 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 27.88 units returned to 36 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -22.56%
