Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Obviously, quite a decent day yesterday.

Our Place Betting Strategy made a profit and the overall strike rate for the top rated horse was pretty good.

I'm still working on a combined strategy;

Yesterday, for example, had you blindly backed every top rated horse on the first page of the ratings you would have had 7.9705 points returned (after commission) to 6 points staked.

Anyway, I hope to get that finished soon, 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 35.14%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 34.21%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 30.23% from all 43 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 112.8 units returned to 111 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 1.62%

Top Rated Horse - There were 13 winners from the top rated horses from 37 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 48.97 units returned to 37 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 32.35%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the second rated horses from 36 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 26.83 units returned to 36 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -25.47%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 7 winners from the third rated horses from 38 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 37 units returned to 38 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -2.63%

Something to make you laugh

A couple from David O.


I was in Asda earlier, this thick female was on the check-out, face like a slapped arse and all the charisma of a half eaten waffle.

I came to pay, I only bought milk and bread but had no change.

"£1.03 please"

"Sorry this is all I've got," as I handed her a £20 note.

"Haven't you got anything smaller, 'cos it will take all my change, and I don't wanna count out £18.97?" she replied and pulled a stroppy face.

"I've got nothing smaller," I replied...

"Shall I pay by card?" I asked.

"Don't do me no favours," she snapped.

I kept my cool and just put my PIN in.

"Cash back?" she asked sarcastically.

I couldn't resist it... "Oh yes, £18.97 please."


Say you are an older senior citizen and can no longer take care of yourself and the government says there is no Nursing Home care available for you.

So, what do you do? You opt for Medicare Part G.

The plan gives anyone 75 or older a gun (Part G) and one bullet. You are allowed to shoot one worthless politician.

This means you will be sent to prison for the rest of your life where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, a library, and all the Health Care you need.

Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That's great.

Need a hearing aid, new hip, knees, kidney, lungs, sex change, or heart? They are all covered!

As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you at least as often as they do now!

And, who will be paying for all of this?

The same government that just told you they can't afford for you to go into a nursing home.

And you will get rid of a useless politician while you are at it.

And now, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any more income taxes!

Is this a great country or what?

Now that you have solved your senior financial plan, enjoy the rest of your week!


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

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
