Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, a quieter day, yesterday.

However, even though the overall strike rate wasn't so impressive, the actual results didn't look so bad to me.

For example, for the first 8 races, the winner was a top three rated horse.

If I can crow about the 40% strike rate days...

I guess that I have to accept that some days won't be so good.

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 15%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 15%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 14.29% from all 21 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 58.24 units returned to 59 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -1.29%

Top Rated Horse - There were 3 winners from the top rated horses from 20 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 3.74 units returned to 20 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -81.3%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 6 winners from the second rated horses from 21 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 26.62 units returned to 21 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 26.76%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 4 winners from the third rated horses from 18 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 27.88 units returned to 18 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 54.89%
