Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A disappointing day, yesterday.

However, we got 2 out of 3 for the First Page Strategy and, as a result, made a profit.

I am still working on the weird errors that are effecting a few of you with your System Selections.

I hope to have this issue resolved today but it's a weird one as it seems to only effect about 2% of you and then only randomly.

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 18.6%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 18.6%.

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 90.33 units returned to 123 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -26.56%

Top Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the top rated horses from 43 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 21.83 units returned to 43 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -49.23%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 6 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 32 units returned to 41 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -21.95%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the third rated horses from 39 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 36.5 units returned to 39 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -6.41%

Something to make you laugh


Last year I replaced several windows in my house and they were the expensive double-pane energy efficient kind.

But this week I got a call from the contractor complaining that his work has been completed for a whole year and I had yet to pay for them.

Boy oh boy did we go round.

Just because I'm blonde doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid.

So, I proceeded to tell him just what his fast talking sales guy had told me last year. . that in one year the windows would pay for themselves.

There was silence on the other end of the line so I just hung up and I haven't heard back.

Guess I must have won that silly argument.


Today's early test ratings show 40 rated races from six meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
