Morning News

Another average day but...

Our PBS selections made a profit for the first time this month.

I'm guessing that the severe weather might make things difficult for the next couple of days but,

There's always the All Weather to fall back on.

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 - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 20% from all 35 Races (including previously unrated races.)
