Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A decent enough day, yesterday but...

I did spend most of it trying to sort out the Hotmail problems.

And, I imagine that I'll be spending today doing much the same.

I was hoping to do an Ascot round up but I guess that that will have to wait until tomorrow.

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 34.62%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 37.04%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 33.33% from all 30 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 65.57 units returned to 76 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -13.72%

Top Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the top rated horses from 26 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 28.09 units returned to 26 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 8.04%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 5 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 24.98 units returned to 25 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -0.079999999999998%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 3 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 12.5 units returned to 25 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -50%
