Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, not too much that I can say about yesterday.

Overall the strike rate (for the top rated horse) was excellent.

As far as Cheltenham is concerned...

We got the winner in the Champion Bumper - Ballyand @ 5/1 (7.20 BSP.) but,

In the Queen Mother Champion Chase we got the top two, unfortunately in the wrong order.

The same happened in the 13:30.

Let's see what today will bring but, before that, 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 34.62%.

Something to make you laugh


A Pastor goes to a nursing home for the first time to visit an elderly parishioner.

As he is sitting there, he notices a bowl of peanuts beside her bed and takes one.

As they continue their conversation, he can't help himself and eats one after another.

By the time they are through visiting, the bowl is empty. He says, "Mrs. Jones, I'm so sorry, but I seem to have eaten all of your peanuts."

"That's O.K.," she says. "They would have just sat there anyway.

Without my teeth, all I can do is suck the chocolate off and put them back in the bowl.


Today's early test ratings show 39 rated races from six meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
