Morning News

rp_french_man-300x290.jpgGood morning...

I find myself waking up today in a strange new world...

With the bars and cafes closed, it's going to feel very weird not being able to go out for a coffee and croissant at 7am every morning - that's really part of French life.

Even after 17 years of living in France, I still get a buzz out of that.

But, hey ho, I suppose that we'll all go on strike and demonstrate and protest in the streets (which is also very much part of French life) and then...

There'll be an election and the President will lose his job and some new, well meaning but totally impotent, President will get a few years of being despised and hated by the very people who voted him in in the first place.

C'est la vie.

Moving on to more important matters...

I seem to be multitasking at the moment; with a whole host of new projects and improvements on the go.

These will, initially, be published on a new (free to access) website but will then be migrated over to

I'll let you know more once the new website is in a slightly more decent state than it currently is.

And then, of course, I really need to finish my forecast strategy so that you can start benefiting from it.

I am getting more and more convinced that it will have to be a combination of 3 different strategies.

My main concern is the reverse forecasts; I can profitably select those races where we should bet the second rated horse to win and the top rated horse to come second but...

Even though we get great prices, I am struggling to get a strike rate of much more than 10% which seems, to my eyes, to be too low for comfort.

I will get there eventually.
