Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

It's hard to criticise yesterday's results.

Sure, the strike rate for the top rated horse wasn't so spectacular but...

Had you done the forecast in every race you would have made a small profit.

The First Page Strategy returned 5.6905 points (after a 5% deduction) to 4 points staked.

Nothing really stands out; good or bad.

So, not too unhappy - just an average day, in other words.

Tomorrow is another Bank Holiday here in France and, thus, there will be no morning news. I'm off early to a village fete.

Be warned, next Sunday is also a bank holiday (and the Sunday and Monday after that, come to think of it!)

Anyway, enough of the 10,000 bank holidays we have in May, 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 22.22%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 21.05%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 21.05% from all 38 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 66.35 units returned to 107 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -37.99%

Top Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the top rated horses from 36 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 22.3 units returned to 36 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -38.06%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the second rated horses from 38 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 35.35 units returned to 38 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -6.97%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 3 winners from the third rated horses from 33 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 8.7 units returned to 33 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -73.64%

Something to make you laugh

Job Interview

A mathematician, an accountant and an economist apply for the same job.

The interviewer calls in the mathematician and asks "What do two plus two equal?"

The mathematician replies "Four."

The interviewer asks "Four, exactly?"

The mathematician looks at the interviewer incredulously and says

"Yes, four, exactly."

Then the interviewer calls in the accountant and asks the same question

"What do two plus two equal?"

The accountant says "On average, four - give or take ten percent, but on average, four."

Then the interviewer calls in the economist and poses the same question

"What do two plus two equal?"

The economist gets up, locks the door, closes the shade, sits down next to the interviewer and says "What do you want it to equal?"


Today's early test ratings show 42 rated races from six meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
