Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, what can I say?

It might have only looked like an average day's racing...

And the strike rates don't look too impressive but,

The Place Betting Strategy came back with a bang and we are now well in profit for the month.

One member was wise enough do do a Lucky 63 on the six selections (picking Rock Steady as the replacement for the non runner in the 2pm at Nottingham) and got £5019.26 returned for his £12.60 staked.

We knew that September was going to be bad but we've now had 3 winning days from the last 4 so, perhaps things are turning round.

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 20%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 20%.

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 56.78 units returned to 100 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -43.22%

Top Rated Horse - There were 7 winners from the top rated horses from 35 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 23.64 units returned to 35 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -32.46%

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 22.66 units returned to 33 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -31.33%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 4 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 10.48 units returned to 32 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -67.25%
