Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I know that we are all excited about the resumption of racing in the UK but...

I do have to say that today's meeting at Newcastle is incredibly weak.

Let's be honest...

If we were looking at that meeting this time last year we wouldn't have given it a second thought.

Low class AW racing that wouldn't normally raise a smile from us.

I think that you have to treat tomorrow's meeting as a test meeting...

It's kind of a way that the BHA can prove that jockeys (sat in 2 meter wide stalls) can isolate themselves (by the required minimum of 2 meters) from other jockeys also sat in 2 meter wide stalls in the same race and that...

During the race, those jockeys won't come closer to each other than 2 meters apart.

And, bearing in mind that Coronavirus is an animal transmitted virus (which is why it's different from the flu), the same applies for all the horses.

Yesterday morning I did a test run of today's ratings (the earlybird version) and 2 of the races I can't even rate, they're so dire.

The only race that looks the slightest bit exciting is the 17:40 and even that wouldn't normally figure for me.

Still, I suppose that I can understand the excitement; when French racing came back on May 11th I did some silly bets just because I hadn't had a bet for so long.

I then settled down and got my self-discipline back.

Compass Ratings

Compass-RatingsWe only managed 1 winner from the 11 races at Sha Tin yesterday.

However, our winner did come in at 12.30 (Hong Kong tote prices) so it was another blindly profitable day for us.

I'll be getting Wednesday's ratings (I'm not sure if they're going to be Happy Valley or Sha Tin) out on Tuesday morning.

I'll also be carrying on my work with some analysis of the historical results.

I'll be writing a script so that the results (top rated, top 3 rated and all horses) are automatically generated every Monday morning once the Sha Tin results are updated.

Spotlight Ratings

spotlight-ratingsOn Saturday there was one Group 3 race at Doomben (AUS).

I sent out the ratings for that race with last Thursday's Morning News.

Now, I'm not going to show off or anything like that but....

Obviously, our top rated horse won for us.

Sunday's Japanese Racing

I also rated the 2 Japanese top quality races on Sunday.

The important one was the Japanese Derby with prize money (for the winning horse) of £1,573,527

The second race was just a Grade 2 race and, as a result, ONLY pays out £404,581 to the winning horse.

In the big race (the Japanese Derby) our top rated horse won the race and our second rated horse came second.

There might actually be something to these ratings after all?

In the second race our top rated horse came 3rd in a 18 runner handicap. I'm not too upset about that.

I did get this email from a member (and someone whom I consider a good friend) - he said...

Morning Smart Arse!!

Well you won't be going out for a cold beer coz your "big ead" won't fit through the front door.

At long last you seem to be getting the hang of this ratings lark

18 runner race on the other side of the problem!

First and second in the correct order ................of course!

As you said the other day you don't set the prices, it just so happens the top rated came out as favourite which makes total sense to me

Australia, Japan, the Moon, Mars... all comes alike to a ratings genius!

I'll be looking to doing lunar ratings (and, potentially Martian ratings) once we've managed to colonise those two places.

Sunday's French Racing

There were also 2 Listed races and 2 Group 2 races at Deauville (FRA) on Sunday and I rated those as well.

In the first of those races (the 14:50) our top rated horse won and our second rated horse came second.

In the second rated race we did nothing but (and I'm not making excuses here) if you look at the "shape" of the ratings there's really not an awful lot between the first top 5 rated horses.

The race was won by our 5th rated horse and our 4th rated horse came second.

Because of the "shape" of the ratings this is not a race that I'd even begin to contemplate even the merest possibility of considering evaluating as a bet; I like to have a decent advantage before I bet my own good money.

In the third race our top rated horse came 2nd - I actually thought that French King would be a sure thing but he came second by four a half lengths which indicates that Way to Paris (our 4th rated horse and the winner) was a bit of a secret that the ratings couldn't prise out.

In our fourth race we also didn't do so good but...

Overall I'm really happy with the way that Spotlight Ratings are shaping up.

I'll try to do some analysis of how they've performed since I launched them.

To be honest, if I could produce Compass Ratings, Spotlight Ratings and an Ante Post Ratings service (all merged together or, just, 3 separate services) - together they might be the portfolio of high quality selections that could finance betting on GB and Irish racing.

Monday's Racing

There are 2 Group 1 races in France and 1 Group 2 race in Germany on Monday the 1st of June.

I have managed to rate those races in advance,

The Spotlight Ratings for Monday are here...

Something to make you smile...

When God created France...

After God created France, he thought it was the most beautiful country in the world.

People were going to get jealous, he thought...

So to make things fair he decided to create the French.

Father of Quadruplets...

Four men are in the hospital waiting room because their wives are having babies.

A nurse goes up to the first guy and says, “Congratulations! You’re the father of twins.”

“That’s odd,” answers the man. “I work for the Minnesota Twins.”

A nurse says to the second guy, “Congratulations! You’re the father of of triplets.”

“That’s weird,” answers the second man. “I work for the 3M company.”

A nurse tells the third man, “Congratulations! You’re the father of quadruplets.”

“That’s strange,” he answers. “I work for the Four Seasons hotel.”

The last man is groaning and banging his head against the wall.

“What’s wrong?” the others ask. “I work for 7 Up!” The last guy said.

The old geezer and the young doctor...

An old geezer, who had been a retired farmer for a long time became very bored and decided to open a medical clinic.

He put a sign up outside that said: “Get your treatment for $500 – if not cured get back $1,000.”

Doctor “Young,” who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000.

He went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic and this is what happened.

Dr. Young: “Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.”

Dr. Young: “Aaagh! This is Gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money.

Dr Young: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Doctor Young: “Oh no you don’t, that’s Gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

Dr. Young: “My eyesight has become weak I can hardly see!”

Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so. Here’s your $1000 back.”

Dr. Young: “But this is only $500...”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.”

Moral of story: Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an old “Geezer.”

In a far off war..

An Englishman, Irishman, Welshman, Scotsman were captured while fighting in a far-off foreign land, and the leader of the captors said, 'We're going to line you up in front of a firing squad and shoot you all in turn. But first, you each can make a final wish.'

The Englishman responds, 'I'd like to hear "God Save The Queen" just one more time to remind me of the auld country, played by the London All Boys Choir. With Morris Dancers Dancing to the tune.'

The Irishman replies, 'I'd like to hear "Danny Boy" just one more time to remind me of the auld country, sung in the style of Daniel O'Donnell, with Riverdance dancers skipping gaily to the tune.'

The Welshman answers, 'I'd like to hear "Men Of Harlech" just one more time to remind me of the country, sung as if by the Treorchy Male Voice Choir.'

The Scotsman says quickly, 'I'd like to be shot first.'










Whatever you are up to today...
