Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Another consistent day and...

The final results don't really show the full picture.

78.95% of all races were won by a top three rated horse - that's pretty close to my target of 80% for that statistic.

I'm working on what to say when I start talking to you about R5.

I'm hoping that I'll have a post ready for Sunday so that I can explain the process, the aim and what it'll mean to you.

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 Results

Yesterday's Results, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 26.32%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 25%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 26.32% from all 19 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 81.56 units returned to 58 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 40.62%

Top Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the top rated horses from 19 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 18.43 units returned to 19 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -3%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 6 winners from the second rated horses from 20 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 25.63 units returned to 20 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 28.15%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 4 winners from the third rated horses from 19 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 37.5 units returned to 19 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 97.37%

Something to make you laugh

One from Peter D.

You can't beat British humour!

Prince Charles and the Hooker

Prince Charles decided to take up walking every day.

And on the same street corner every day he passed a hooker standing there.

He learned to brace himself as he approached her for what was almost certain to follow...

"One hundred and fifty pounds!" she'd shout.

"No.. Five pounds!" He said from the side of his mouth, just to shut her up.

This ritual between him and the hooker became a daily occurrence.

She'd yell, "One hundred and fifty pounds!"

He'd yell back, "Five pounds!"

One day, Camilla decided to accompany her husband.

As the couple neared the hooker's corner, Prince Charles realized she'd bark her £150 offer and Camilla would wonder what he'd really been doing on all his past outings.

He figured he'd better have a good explanation for his wife.

As they neared the hooker's corner he became even more apprehensive than usual.

Sure enough, there she stood. He tried to avoid eye contact as she watched the pair pass.

Then, the hooker yelled: "See what you get for five pounds, you tight b*stard!"


Today's early test ratings show 27 rated races from four meetings.

Have a great day's racing!
