Morning News

6620418Good morning...

I sort of got sidetracked yesterday.

I've come up with a different angle on All Weather ratings based upon R8.

Whilst I should have put that to one side and got on with my normal work...

I got excited and a little bit carried away and ended up spending far more time than I should have, working on that.

For those of you who have expressed concern...

My knee seems to be getting better.

Weirdly enough, it seems that going for a 4km walk around the lake in the village every day seems to be helping.

It's strange, the walk is quite painful and, what used to take me about 40 minutes to do, now takes just over an hour.

However, after the walk, my knee seems to work better and, if I sit down in my easy chair, I can actually get up again; that wasn't so easy this time last week.

It's weird;

Twenty years ago (which seems like yesterday),

I could fall off my motorbike, get hacked down in a game of footie in the park or trip over my shoelaces and...

Get up and walk away.

Three weeks ago I slipped on the ice, banged my knee on the curbstone and I've become an old man overnight.


Today I am going all out to get the Compass Ratings tasks finished off as that will give me the space to get onto R8 and also get that out of the way.

As you know, Compass Ratings are purely based upon horse form.

Compass Ratings Plus adds in Jockey Strike Rate.

Compass Ratings Plus Plus will also add in Stall/Draw Bias.

This is far more important at Happy Valley than it is at Sha Tin but is an obvious addition and can only help to make Compass Ratings even more profitable.

I have the data to hand and it should be quite an easy thing to do.

Compass Ratings

There is a missing race (the 11:45) on today's Compass Ratings PDF.

At first I thought that it was an error but...

It turns out that it is missing on purpose.

I can only rate races where the horses have a sufficient amount of form.

In the 11:45 race, the horses have only run 1 or 2 races; thus not enough form to rate them.

On Focus Ratings (and Early Bird Ratings) when this happens I show the race but also display a message to indicate that "There is insufficient data to rate this race."

On Compass Ratings that doesn't happen; I will write some code to show that message when it happens.


Task List...

In order to be honest and truly transparent with you...

I will now be publishing my task list on the Morning News.

You will be able to see what I am working on and, more importantly, what progress I am making.

Here are the current tasks...

T01). Work out a number of strategies to utilise R8 and provide Focus Rating members free Portfolio Betting selections across a number of different betting strategies (win backing, place backing, dutching, laying and, the other thing that I described that I don't know what it is called) on a daily basis.

T02). For Compass Ratings, display, on screen and via a email PDF, the twice weekly trainer/jockey win/place strike rates.

T03). For Compass Ratings, complete the eBook that explains all the weird and wonderful things that I have learned about Hong Kong Horse racing.

T04). Complete PaperTradeIt.com - a free site where you can privately log your bets and get Strike Rate, POI (to ISP and BSP) data and losing run analysis on those bets.

T05). Re-launch Intelligent-Betting.com - very good good things are happening there as we speak and it is becoming a vital (and also, very profitable) tool for those who like to think about their betting.

I'm trying to knock off the easy/quick jobs first in order to reduce the size of the list; the size of the list scares me sometimes and, believe me, I have twice as many jobs on the Admin/BAU (Business As Usual - things like automated scripts, backups and server log file analysis - stuff that all website owners have to do) task list to get through as well.

Something to make you smile...

Pregnant...

A mother took her daughter to the doctor and asked him to give her an examination to determine the cause of the daughter's swollen abdomen.

It only took the doctor about 2 seconds to say, "Gimme a break, lady! Your daughter is pregnant!"

The mother turn red with fury, and she argued with the doctor that *her* daughter was a good girl, and would *never* compromise her reputation by having sex with a boy.

The doctor faced the window and silently watched the horizon.

The mother became enraged and screamed, "Quit looking out the window! Aren't you paying attention to me?"

"Yes, of course I am paying attention, ma'am. It's just that the last time this happened, a star appeared in the east, and three wise men came.

I was hoping they'd show up again, and help me figure out who got your daughter pregnant!"
