Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Yesterday was a bank holiday over here in France.

And so I took the day off.

In between BBQ and beer and general lounging around, I did take a few peeks at the results coming in.

I had the feeling that it would be a good day and the morning results show that to be so.

What a stonking day!

Had you done the forecast in every race you would have had £53.40 returned to £38.00 staked.

Had you done the trifecta in every race you would have had £140.36 returned to £38.00 staked.

Our Banker's Bet won and...

We made a profit from our PBS selections.

And, to top it all, our top rated horse won 43.9% of all races.

Roll on the next Bank Holiday is all that I can say!

It's next Sunday, by the way, so let's get on and take a quick look at yesterday's results in more detail....

Yesterday's Results, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 43.9%.

Something to make you laugh

Rat Experiment

At a recent convention of biological scientists, one researcher remarked to another, "Did you know that we have switched from rats to lawyers for experiments in our lab?"

"Really?" replied the other researcher. "Why the switch?"

"There were a number of reasons," the first researcher explained.

"First, our lab assistants don't become so attached to them.

Second, lawyers breed much quicker, making them far more plentiful.

Third, animal rights groups have no objection to their torture and fourth, there are some things even a rat won't do."


Today's early test ratings show 51 rated races from eight meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
