Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Yesterday was another bank holiday over here in France and I didn't even look in on the racing.

Just as well really as it doesn't seem to have been that exciting.

Today's racing looks slightly better and I'll be taking more interest in it, this afternoon.

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 21.74%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 25%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 18.52% from all 27 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 42 units returned to 67 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -37.31%

Top Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the top rated horses from 23 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 10.17 units returned to 23 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -55.78%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 2 winners from the second rated horses from 21 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 6.33 units returned to 21 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -69.86%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 3 winners from the third rated horses from 23 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 25.5 units returned to 23 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 10.87%
