Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I'm not sure what to say about yesterday.

Yes, our Banker's Bet won (there wasn't a Chancer's Bet) but, apart from that...

It was just a slight less than average day.


Without further ado, 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 23.53%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 22.86% from all 35 Races (including previously unrated races.)
