Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A so, so day, yesterday.

Our First Page Strategy returned 5.643 points (after commission) to 2 points staked.

We made a small loss on the Place Betting Strategy but we are still well in profit.

However, to my eyes, there were no stand out races...

Even though there were six meetings.

Anyway, let's see what today brings so, 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 23.08%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 21.95%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 20.45% from all 44 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 83.74 units returned to 109 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -23.17%

Top Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the top rated horses from 39 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 33.31 units returned to 39 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -14.59%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the second rated horses from 37 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 33.18 units returned to 37 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -10.32%

Stress Management

Having a rough day?

Just in case you've had a rough day, here's a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological texts.

The funny thing is that it really works.

1. Picture yourself near a stream.
2. Birds are softly chirping in the cool mountain air.
3. No one but you knows your secret place.
4. You are in total seclusion from the hectic place called "the world,".
5. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.
6. The water is crystal clear.
7. You can easily make out the face of the person you're holding underwater.
8. See, you're smiling already.


Today's early test ratings show 36 rated races from six meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
