Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well. what do I say about yesterday?

Not a massive day but not much seemed to go wrong.

Both our First Page Strategy and our Place Betting Strategy made a profit and...

Had you blindly done the forecast in every race, you would have also been in profit.

I did some work on the Systems Selections script and have made some progress but...

I have found some other minor bugs that I need to resolve today.

For those of you waiting for responses to emails; I will get to you, I just have a bit of a backlog at the moment and the emails seem to be taking time to action.

Anyway, that's for later 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 23.81%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 22.22%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 23.91% from all 46 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 98.05 units returned to 121 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -18.97%

Top Rated Horse - There were 10 winners from the top rated horses from 42 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 35.21 units returned to 42 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -16.17%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the second rated horses from 41 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 43.96 units returned to 41 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 7.22%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 3 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 18.88 units returned to 38 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -50.32%
