Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I've tried very hard to resist the two major temptations in my life today.

The first temptation was to have another lie in and...

The second was not to gloat about the slightly good Tricast that we got in the 13:15 at Punchestown yesterday.

As you can see, I was successful in avoiding the first temptation.

So, what about Punchestown; we predicted the first three in the right order in the 13:15 and the Tricast paid £611.23!

That's good news for you but bad news for me as I now have to spend all day trying to analyse how we got that result - what clues were there to suggest that the Tricast was on the cards.

In other words, what can I do so that I can suggest, in the future, that a race has the same profile?

But, before I get into all that, let's 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%.

Not wonderful but, with a £611 tricast, how can I complain?

Sorry, I'll try my best not to mention that tricast again.


There was one forecast yesterday.

Punchestown 12:40 - The CSF paid £8.81


There was one tricast yesterday.

Punchestown 13:15 - The Tricast paid £611.23

Whoops, I wasn't going to mention that!


From the 32 rated races there were 15 winners (from the top 3 rated horses) - four of those were at nice prices.
