Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I have to say that I didn't get a chance to follow the racing yesterday.

We had thunderstorms and my internet was up and down like a yo-yo.

So, the first thing that strikes me, having taken a quick look at the results, is...

Had you done the Forecast on every race yesterday, you would have had £113.71 returned for £33 staked.

Also, the only Trifecta returned enough so that you would have almost doubled your stakes had you done the Trifecta in every race.

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 27.27%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 26.32%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 23.68% from all 38 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 100.32 units returned to 106 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -5.36%

Top Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the top rated horses from 33 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 37.82 units returned to 33 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 14.61%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 8 winners from the second rated horses from 38 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 44.5 units returned to 38 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 17.11%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 4 winners from the third rated horses from 35 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 18 units returned to 35 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -48.57%
