Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, yesterday's big day of racing didn't seem to do us any favours.

Still, we've had a few good days in a row and we have to expect the occasional bad one.

Today, with only four meetings, looks easier (to my eyes, anyway.)

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 16.36%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 16.36%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 16.07% from all 56 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 86.05 units returned to 155 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -44.48%

Top Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the top rated horses from 55 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 26.17 units returned to 55 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -52.42%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 11 winners from the second rated horses from 54 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 39.88 units returned to 54 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -26.15%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 3 winners from the third rated horses from 46 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 20 units returned to 46 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -56.52%

Something to make you laugh


A man in a bar sees a friend at a table, drinking by himself.

Approaching the friend he comments, "You look terrible. What's the problem?"

"My mother died in August," his friend replied, "and left me $25,000.

Then in September my father died, leaving me $90,000."

"Losing both parents in two months. No wonder you're depressed."

"And last month my aunt died, and left me $15,000."

His friend continued.

"Three close family members lost in three months? How sad."

"Then this month," concluded, the friend, "absolutely nothing!"


Today's early test ratings show 30 rated races from five meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
