Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...


What can I say about yesterday?

One of the worst day's we've ever had and I can't find a single reason why.

The funny thing is that we made a profit for our First Page Strategy with three wins out of four selections.

And we had another good day for our Place Betting Strategy, giving us 10 points profit (for the basic strategy) for the 1st week of the month and 18 points (for the refined strategy.)

So, the reason for the overall strike rate (for the top rated horse) eludes me.

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 8.33%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 7.69%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 0% 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 26.8 units returned to 74 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -63.78%

Top Rated Horse - There were 2 winners from the top rated horses from 24 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 4.35 units returned to 24 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -81.87%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 4 winners from the second rated horses from 25 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 10.45 units returned to 25 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -58.2%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 1 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 12 units returned to 25 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -52%

Something to make you laugh

Things That Took Me Fifty Years To Learn!

1.) Never under any circumstances take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2.) If you have to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings".

3.) There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness".

4.) People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

5.) And when God, who created the entire universe with all of its glories, decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.

6.) You should not confuse your career with your life.

7.) No matter what happens... somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.

8.) When trouble arises & things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution & is willing to take command. Very often, that person is crazy.

9.) Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

10.) A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.

11.) Never lick a steak knife.

12.) Take out the fortune before you eat the cookie.

13.) "The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

14.) You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

15.) Your REAL friends still love you anyway.


Today's early test ratings show 41 rated races from six meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
