Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A massive day of racing, yesterday, with 10 meetings.

The results weren't wonderful but today looks far easier with only four meetings to concentrate on.

With Royal Ascot starting next Tuesday I am working today and will be taking Monday off instead.

I'm going to be doing some analysis on the Speed Ratings during Ascot as I have a sneaking suspicion that they work better for the "Festival" races.

Time will tell.

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 17.19%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 16.42%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 17.14% from all 70 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 132.87 units returned to 177 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -24.93%

Top Rated Horse - There were 11 winners from the top rated horses from 64 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 32.62 units returned to 64 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -49.03%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 12 winners from the second rated horses from 58 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 46 units returned to 58 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -20.69%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the third rated horses from 55 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 54.25 units returned to 55 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -1.36%

Something to make you laugh

Catholic Priest

My mother wanted me to be a Catholic priest.

Can you imagine giving up your sex life and then, once a week people come in to Confession to tell you the details and highlights of theirs?



Today's early test ratings show 28 rated races from four meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
