Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... Well, yesterday was a comfortably nice day for us. A strike rate of 36.84% (for our top rated horse) is nothing to complain about and... Had you blindly backed every top rated horse in every race you would have made a profit of 33.16% (to ISP) on your stakes. It was a good day for the forecasts as well. This is important to me as I feel that the number of forecasts predicted is a true test of a ratings system. In other words I am happier when the ratings predict the first and second (either in the right order or the wrong order) than I am with just the wins. Had you blindly done the forecast in every race you would have had £29.83 returned to your £18.00 in stakes. Actually, had you blindly done the forecast in every race you would have had £40.10 returned to your £36.00 in stakes. For more detail, here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format...

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... Another day... Another abandoned meeting. Watching the results coming I was a little bit worried but... It seems that we were saved by the All Weather racing later in the day. Today looks interesting but, then again, there are only 19 races so who knows.

Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... Saturdays are always difficult for the ratings... And I know that some of you choose not to bet on Saturdays anyway. The ratings did reasonably well with a strike rate (for the top rated horse) of 26.32%. Today's racing looks pretty easy and I'm hoping for decent results for the ratings. I am having a day off today (it's been a hard week) but will be checking email form time to time. For more detail, here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format...

Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... I am sorry about the slight lack of a Morning News yesterday... I lost my internet connection on Thursday and didn't get it back until after yesterday's ratings had gone out. Such are the joys of living in rural France (where it seems that we are living back in the 1950's.) But then, perhaps that's part of the joy of living in rural France. I can't say too much about yesterday's results... What winners we got all seemed to be rather low priced and there were no high priced surprises. Some days are like that. Lets hope that today is more interesting. From Monday (French rural internet allowing), I shall be sending out a second ratings email about 5 minutes after the normal ratings email. This will show the ratings in the new R5 format - these are far more accurate and I would encourage you to use these. I shall also be sending the ratings out slightly earlier - on days when there are no flat turf or flat all weather races (these take longer to compile because of the speed ratings) you should get your ratings around about 9am. On another note, those of you BT Internet clients will be happy to know that I have finally solved the issue (for good, this time, I hope) with them not processing mails from Focus Ratings.

Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... Hey ho, what a good day. There's nothing to complain about with a 32% strike rate (for our top rated horse.) I know that Fairyhouse was abandoned; and I really hate it when potentially profitable meetings are abandoned but... Even so, we did OK with 4 winners (from the top rated horses) from the 6 races at Newcastle (AW) - 5 of the 6 races were won by a top three rated horse. Had you blindly backed the top rated horse in every race at Newcastle yesterday (which, I guess, would have been a kind of weird thing to do) you would have had 8.32 points (to ISP) returned to 6 points staked. That would equate to a 38.67% profit on stakes. In the non-handicap races we got a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 42.8% which equated to a profit on stakes (to ISP) of 13.43%. Now, I know that there are a number of you on a 7 day Free Trial at the moment. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me. I have taken a week off work (I run an IT support business - mainly for the expats over here in France but I do have a number of local French clients) just so that I can be available for you. Likewise, any of you full members, you should take the opportunity to contact me with any of your queries - I'm spending all day (this week) sat in front of the computer just waiting to reply. So, if you want to know "When are we moving to R5?" or "How good is it going to be when we move to a blindly profitable ratings service (R5) and how are you going to handle out existing systems (based upon R4?)" then now's the time to ask. For more detail of yesterday's results, here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format... Yesterday's Traffic Light Results 85.71% of the non-handicap races yesterday were won by a top three rated horse - good news for you dutchers? Anyway, I'll get to that, firstly let's get on and take a quick look at yesterday's results in more detail....

Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... A slightly disappointing day, yesterday. However, we are running at a strike rate (for the top rated horse) of 29.08% for all races and 35.11% for the non-handicap races for the year to date so I'm not too unhappy. Once again, we had one meeting abandoned so it was a very quiet day's racing. Let's hope that we get all five meetings today. We did, however, get some big priced winners from the top three rated horses, yesterday... In the 12:20 at Hereford, our 3rd rated horse, Royale Zanzibar, won @ 12/1 In the 15:05 at Hereford, our 2nd rated horse, Cougar Kid, won @ 12/1 and... In the 16:35 at Kempton (AW), our 3rd rated horse, Mercers, won @ 10/1. Interestingly, every non-handicap race yesterday was won by a top three rated horse. That might prove interesting to those of you who like to Dutch horses. For any of you currently on a free trial, I am around all day today so, if you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line.

Yesterday's Traffic Light Results So, let's get on and take a quick look at yesterday's results in more detail....

Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... Well, a bit of a strange day with Plumpton being abandoned and... What was a quiet day's racing to start with, became even quieter. We only got 3 top rated winners from the 13 remaining races. In the 9 horse handicap hurdle at Ayr (14:15), Too Many Chefs won @ 4/1 ISP (5.40 BSP) In the 18:40 at Wolves, Watersmeet won at 11/2 ISP (8.51 BSP) and... In the 19:10 at Wolves, Mount Tahan won at evens (2.02 BSP.) Thus 13.5 points were returned to 13 points staked (to ISP) leaving us with a small profit on stakes of 3.84%. To BSP, 15.13 points were returned (after a 5% commission was deducted) to 13 points staked. Thus, the profit on stakes (to BSP) was 16.41%. Now, I know that the strike rate might not seem too impressive... Especially after the last few days, 14/01/18 Strike rate = 39.98% 13/01/18 Strike rate = 41.46% 12/01/18 Strike rate = 30.30% 11/01/18 Strike rate = 41.18% But a wise man once told me that...

Strike Rate is just Vanity, It's Profits that count!

Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... Well, we do seem to be on a winning streak at the moment. Yesterday we might only have got a strike rate (for the top rated horse) of 38.89% but, it does come after the great strike rates of the preceding days... 41.46% Strike rate 13/01/18 30.30% Strike rate 12/01/18 41.18% Strike rate 11/01/18 Then again, January has always been rather king to the ratings. I have to admit that I've been on a sort of extended Christmas break but... There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes. For the first time since I can remember, my personal email inbox is empty; the last time that happened there were dinosaurs walking the earth! And I am working towards doing the same for the 2 Focus Ratings email inboxes. Of course, there is still work to do with R5 but I hope to start reporting on R5 results from tomorrow. There may be some other surprises this week but I don't want to jinx myself by detailing them; every time I promise you something, something comes up and puts a spanner in the works. My new year's resolution is to deliver rather than promise. Anyway, let's get on and take a look at yesterday's R4 results... Here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format... Yesterday's Traffic Light Results

Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... The beady eyed amongst you may have noticed that there is a new link on the morning ratings email. This is for the normal ratings but using R5 rather that R4. To see how R5 has historically performed, I have created a spreadsheet for you. This may be seen (downloaded from) this link... R5.xlsx The first tab shows the actual data. The second tab shows some initial analysis. As you can see, in 2016 the top rated horse had a 31.83% strike rate and generated profits (to level stakes to ISP) of 15.92%. In 2017 (year to date) the top rated horse had a 33.46% strike rate and generated profits (to level stakes to ISP) of 22.48%.

Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning... Well, there's not much that I can say about yesterday. Let's hope that today is better. As I explained a couple of days ago... R5 will be the current ratings (R4) with the new ratings added. I've just calculated the strike rate and POI for the new ratings (R5) for the year to date. Using our current ratings (R4), we are running at a strike rate (for the top rated horse), for the year, of 26.09% and we are losing about 11% on our stakes. Had we been using the new ratings (R5) since the start of the year we would have seen a strike rate (for the top rated horse) of 33.46% and a POI (profit on stakes) of 22.48%. Today's new ratings can be found at... Advance Ratings For more detail, here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format...
