Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, I can't really complain about yesterday.

We got a reasonable strike rate and...

Our three combined strategies returned 17.0165 points to 14 points staked.

There was one big Trifecta and a couple of decent combination Trifectas which sort of shows that we're on the right track.

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 25.58%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 25.53%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 22.45% from all 49 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 96.86 units returned to 135 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -28.25%

Top Rated Horse - There were 11 winners from the top rated horses from 43 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 44.83 units returned to 43 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 4.26%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the second rated horses from 45 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 35.03 units returned to 45 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -22.16%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 2 winners from the third rated horses from 47 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 17 units returned to 47 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -63.83%

Something to make you laugh

Red Ears

A blonde with two red ears went to her doctor.

The doctor asked her what had happened to her ears and she answered, "I was ironing a shirt and the phone rang - but instead of picking up the phone I accidentally picked up the iron and stuck it to my ear."

"Oh Dear!" the doctor exclaimed in disbelief.

"But, what happened to your other ear?"

"The jerk called back!"


Today's early test ratings show 23 rated races from three meetings.

Every race is rated.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
