Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

So, an average day and it looks like we'll need a miracle today to make a monthly profit from the Place Betting Strategy.

Still, I live in hope.

Over the month, we've done pretty well (as far as the strike rate for our top rated horse is concerned) and whatever today's results are,

That won't change.

Anyway, enough of that, 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 25%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 25.58%.

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 96.14 units returned to 121 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -20.55%

Top Rated Horse - There were 10 winners from the top rated horses from 40 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 35.14 units returned to 40 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -12.15%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 6 winners from the second rated horses from 40 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 23.25 units returned to 40 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -41.87%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the third rated horses from 41 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 37.75 units returned to 41 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -7.93%

Something to make you laugh

Special Golf Ball

Two golfing friends were about to tee off, when one fellow noticed that his partner had but one golf ball.

"Don't you have at least one other ball?," he asked.

"Nope, I only need one ball."

"Are you sure? What happens if you lose that one?"

"This is a very special golf ball. You can't lose it, so I don't need another one."

"What do you mean you can't lose it! What happens if you slice your shot and the ball goes in the lake?"

"That's okay, this special golf ball senses when it's under water and it puts out a steam of bubbles. I'll be able to retrieve it. You can't lose this ball."

"Well what happens if you hit it into the long rough?"

"No problem, you see, this ball can detect the long grass and it sends up puffs of fluorescent smoke. I'll be able to see it easily. You can't lose this ball."

Exasperated, the friend asks, "Okay. Let's say our game goes late, the sun goes down, and you hit your ball deep into the trees and it gets lost among the bushes and shrubs?. What are you going to do then?"

"That's okay too. You see, this special ball can sense the darkness and it makes a beeping sound. I'll be able to get it back - no problem."

Finally satisfied that he needs only the one amazing golf ball, the friend asks, "Hey, where did you get a golf ball like that anyway?"

"I found it."


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

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
