Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I do apologise for the slight lack of morning news for the last two days.

My internet has been going off at midnight and not coming back on until about 8am.

Anyway, the results have been reasonable and although yesterday was a very quiet day...

We still ended up with an above 30% strike rate for our top rated horse.

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 31.58%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 31.58%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 30% from all 20 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 55.38 units returned to 55 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 0.69%

Top Rated Horse - There were 6 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 24.28 units returned to 19 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 27.79%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 4 winners from the second rated horses from 19 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 18.6 units returned to 19 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -2.11%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 2 winners from the third rated horses from 17 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 12.5 units returned to 17 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -26.47%

Something to make you laugh

Those thrifty Yorkshire lads

A man contacted the Yorkshire Post following the death of his wife.

The couple had been happily married for 50 years.

The husband contacted the newspaper regarding an obituary.

When informed of the cost, the man uttered, in true Yorkshire fashion, “How Much?!!!”

He reluctantly produced his wallet. “I want summat simple" he explained, “my Gladys was a good-hearted and hard-working Yorkshire lass but she wunt ‘ave wanted owt swanky’."

“Perhaps a small poem,” suggested the woman at the desk.

‘Nay,’ he said, ‘she wunt ‘ave wanted anything la-di-da, just put; Gladys Braithwaite’s died.'

“You need to say when," he was told by the receptionist.

"Do I? Well, put died 17th March 2015. That’ll do."

"It is usual for the bereaved to add some meaningful phrase about the dearly departed."

The man considered for a moment. ‘Well, put in, ‘Sadly missed.’ That’ll do,’ he said.

‘You can have another four words,’ the woman explained.

‘No, no!’ he cried, ‘she wouldn’t ‘ave wanted me to splash out.’

“The words are included in the price," the woman informed him.

"Are they? You mean I’ve paid for ‘em?"

"Yes, indeed."

"Well, if I’ve paid for ‘em" exclaimed the man, "I’m ‘avin’ ‘em."

The obituary was duly printed as follows:

Gladys Braithwaite died, 17th March 2015. Sadly missed. Also Tractor for sale.


Today's early test ratings show 34 rated races from five meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
