Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, a less than wonderful day yesterday.

It was quite frustrating watching the results come in as there seemed (to my eyes, anyway) to be no rhyme or reason to some of the races.

I can sort of understand not getting the 22 runner handicaps right but...

Some of the smaller races didn't perform as they would normally do.

For our First Page Strategy we only got 1 win from the 4 selections giving us a loss of 0.511 points but...

This was balanced by another winning day (the second in a row) from the Place Betting Strategy which leaves us at a massive 26 points profit for 5 points staked for the first 2 days of April.

The Overall Profit Index. If you had blindly backed every top three rated horse in all of the races you would have had 79.04 units returned to 113 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -30.05%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the second rated horses from 40 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 21.25 units returned to 40 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -46.87%
