Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, it was a much happier day yesterday.

A decent strike rate and you could have blindly backed every top rated horse and made a profit.

In fact, you could have blindly backed every top three rated horse and made a profit.

And we got the winner in the Welsh Champion Hurdle (we also got second and third but in the wrong order unfortunately - thus narrowly missing out on the £1040 Tricast.)

So I'm a pretty happy bunny.

And will be carrying with my work on the Speed Ratings with a big smile on my face.

Let's 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 33.33%.

And that's over my target strike rate of 30%.

The Overall Profit Index. If you had blindly backed every top three rated horse in all of the races you would have had 102.52 units returned to 101 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, 101.5%

Had you blindly backed the top rated horse in every race you would have had 45.99 units returned to 33 units staked.

Thus, a profit of 39.36% on your investment.


There were two forecasts yesterday.

Wetherby 13:35 - The CSF paid £4.55

Fairyhouse 14:30 - The CSF paid £8.71


There was one trifecta yesterday.

Wetherby 13:35 - The Trifecta paid £7.10


From the 34 rated races there were 22 winners (from the top 3 rated horses) - six of those were at nice prices.
