Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I kind of knew that yesterday was going to be a pretty stonkingly amazingly good day.

The subtle clue was the first rated race of the day, the 14:10 at York...

This was a 17 runner handicap and we got the forecast; the CSF paid £60.60

So, the First Page Strategy was a washout but that happens.

However, had you blindly backed the top rated horse in every race on the first page of the normal ratings, you would have had 15.3805 points returned (after commission) to 6 points staked.

Our Place Betting Strategy gave us 2.8 points profit and we are 11 points in profit after the first 12 days of the month.

Our Banker's Bet won as well!

However, it's not all good news...

The script that updates the prices has failed - it could be a Betfair interface problem - so I can't report on the prices of the winners. I am working on a fix for that right now.

So, moving on, 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 43.75%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 41.67%.

Something to make you laugh

A couple from Lee...

The Right Choice?

An aeroplane was about to crash; there were five passengers on board but only four parachutes.

The first passenger Holly Madison said, "I have my own reality show and I am the smartest and prettiest woman at Playboy, so Americans don't want me to die."

She took the first parachute and jumped out of the plane.

The second passenger John McCain said, "I'm a senator and a decorated war hero from an elite navy unit in the United States of America."

He grabbed the second pack and jumped.

The third passenger, Donald Trump, said, "I am going to be the next president of the United States, I am the smartest man in our country and I will make America great again."

So he grabbed the pack next to him and jumped out.

The fourth passenger, Billy Graham, said to the fifth passenger, a ten year old schoolgirl, "I have lived a full life and served my God the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute."

The little girl said, "That's okay, Mr Graham. There's a parachute left for you. The smartest man in America took my schoolbag."

-- Noah, 4314 BC

1. "Aw c'mon. Who the @#$% is going to find out?"
-- Bill Clinton, 1998

Have a great day's racing!
