Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I'm always a bit unsure when a meeting is abandoned...

Whether that improves our strike rate or otherwise.

However, with only two meetings yesterday we did average for a Monday and are currently running at a 32.17% strike rate for our top rated horse for the month of January.

Today doesn't look too exciting, to my eyes anyway.

Anyway, we'll see, 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 21.43%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 21.43%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 19.05% from all 21 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 30.33 units returned to 42 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -27.79%

The Perfect Sermon

It was Saturday night and the preacher still hadn't been able to think of a sermon for the next morning. About 9:00 p.m. he finally said to his wife, "Dear, I think I've come up with the perfect sermon! I'm going to give a sermon about horseback riding!"

She said, "Don't be silly! You can't give a sermon about horseback riding!"

He replied, "Well, it's going to have to do because I've preached on just about every other subject I can think of."

The next morning as they were driving to church, she said, "I can't believe that you're insisting on doing this! You know, If you're going to give that silly sermon on horseback riding, I'm just going to stay in the car during the service."

He said, "OK, then, suit yourself!", so she stayed in the car.

Entering church before the service, the preacher had a sudden inspiration and gave a hell-fire and brimstone sermon on SEX that just had the congregation in awe.

As the congregation filed out of the church, some of he members saw his wife sitting in the car and approached her window.

One of them said, "Wow! you just missed the best sermon your husband has EVER given!"

She said, "Yeah, right! What does he know about it! He talks big but he's only tried it twice in his life! Once before we were married and once after, and he fell off both times!"



Today's early test ratings show 18 rated races from three meetings.

Every race is rated.

Have a great day's racing!
