Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, yesterday morning I said that I thought that yesterday would be very similar to Monday.

And it was almost identical.

The 30% strike rate (for the top rated horse) is acceptable and, had you done the forecast in every race, you would have made a handsome profit on the day.

Even with just the one Trifecta, you would have also doubled your money had you blindly done the Trifecta in every race as well.

Anyway, 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 30.77%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 27.59%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 27.59% from all 29 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 80.76 units returned to 79 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 2.23%

Top Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the top rated horses from 26 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 23.85 units returned to 26 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -8.27%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 7 winners from the second rated horses from 28 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 28.91 units returned to 28 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 3.25%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 2 winners from the third rated horses from 25 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 28 units returned to 25 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 12%
