Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, the overall results weren't too impressive but...

It certainly didn't seem that way whilst I was watching the results coming in.

So far this month we have only had 3 sub 20% days and...

15 30% plus days (5 of them being 40% plus) so I guess that puts things into perspective.

Anyway, enough naval gazing, 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 16%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 16%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 21.43% from all 28 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 51.99 units returned to 74 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -29.74%

Top Rated Horse - There were 4 winners from the top rated horses from 25 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 12.37 units returned to 25 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -50.52%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the second rated horses from 25 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 22.12 units returned to 25 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -11.52%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 3 winners from the third rated horses from 24 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 17.5 units returned to 24 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -27.08%

Something to make you laugh


Mid-life is when you go to the doctor and you realize you are now so old, you have to pay someone to look at you naked.

The good news about mid-life is that the glass is still half- full...
Of course, the bad news is that it won't be long before your teeth are floating in it.

Mid-life women no longer have upper arms, They have wingspans...
They are no longer women in sleeveless shirts, they are flying squirrels in drag.

Mid-life has hit you when you stand naked in front of a mirror and can see your rear end without turning around.

Mid-life brings the wisdom that life throws you curves...and that you're now sitting on your biggest ones.

Mid-life is when you want to grab every firm young lovely in a tube top and scream, "Listen, honey, even the Roman Empire fell, and those things will too!"

Mid-life is when you start to repeat yourself...and your chins follow suit.

You become more reflective in mid-life. You start pondering the "big" questions -- what is life, why am I
much Healthy Choice ice cream can I eat before it's no longer a healthy choice?


Today's early test ratings show 30 rated races from five meetings.

Have a great day's racing!
