Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Yesterday was disappointing but these things happen.

At least our Banker's Bet and our Chancer's Bet won,

Both were the same selection, just from different systems.

I didn't watch the results come in...

So, I'm struggling to say anything meaningful.

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 21.88%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 21.21%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 21.21% from all 33 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 71.61 units returned to 95 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -24.62%

Top Rated Horse - There were 7 winners from the top rated horses from 32 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 14.11 units returned to 32 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -55.91%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the second rated horses from 32 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 40.5 units returned to 32 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 26.56%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 3 winners from the third rated horses from 31 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 17 units returned to 31 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -45.16%
