focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I was hoping to get a lot of work done today (even though Sunday is normally my day off) but...

I have been invited out to Sunday lunch by some good expat friends.

It's a sort of birthday treat,

I hope that they haven't baked a cake with candles...

That would be a lot of candles!

I'll be having some bets on the French racing as a few of the races look like they have the right shape (as far as the ratings are concenred) for me to bet the race (rather than betting the horse.)


Focus Ratings

focus

Although the strike rate for yesterday's racing was lower than we have been seeing, it was, weirdly enough, a blindly profitable day.

Had you blindly backed the top rated horse in every race, you would have made a 12% Profit to ISP.

Yesterday's Results

Here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format... Yesterday's Traffic Light Results

Yesterday's Results, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 20%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 20%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 20% from all 25 Races (including previously unrated races.)

The Overall Profit Index. If you had blindly backed every top three rated horse in all of the races you would have had 57.41 units returned to 74 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -22.42%

Top Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the top rated horses from 25 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 28 units returned to 25 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, 12%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 3 winners from the second rated horses from 24 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 24.5 units returned to 24 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 2.08%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 2 winners from the third rated horses from 25 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 4.91 units returned to 25 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -80.36%

Non Handicap Races - Top Rated Horse - There were 6 non-handicap races yesterday. From these races there were 1 Top Rated winners. Thus, the Strike Rate (for Top Rated Horses) was 16.67%

Top Rated Horse - If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 11 units returned to 6 units staked. The Top Rated Non-Handicap Profit Index was, thus, 83.33%

Non Handicap Races - Top Three Rated Horses - There were 6 non-handicap races yesterday. From these races there were 3 Top Three Rated winners. Thus, the Strike Rate (for the Top Three Rated Horses) was 50%

Compass Ratings

Compass-Ratings

Today, there is an afternoon meeting at Sha Tin.

This means it's all happening very early in the morning for us (being 8 hours behind Hong Kong.)

Thus, by the time you read this, some of the races will have already been run.

However, I did send out the ratings for today's meeting ealrly last Thursday morning.

Spotlight Ratings

spotlight-ratings

There were seven Spotlight Ratings rated races yesterday.

We did nothing with our two races at Eagle Farm (AUS) however...

In our first ever rated race in South Africa (Turffontein - 2:15)

Our top rated horse won at 23/20 and...

Our second rated horse came second at 10/1

So, a good start for us in South Africa.

At Lyon Parilly (FR) we did nothing in the first rated race.

In the second race (5:00 Prix Cleopatre) our top rated horse came second and our second rated horse won the race @103/10

In the third race (6:05 Prix Corrida) our top rated horse came second.

In our only rated race at Belmont Park (USA) our top rated horse won @ 5/4

Today...

We have 7 French races and 1 (our first ever) Italian race.

Ante Post Ratings

27e164c0767bb5fcf74c98f871ba8524--gold-chains-operaFrom next week I shall be rating (well in advance) any decent races that need to be rated as part of my Ante Post Ratings service.

Obviously, you as Focus Ratings members will get access to these ratings for free.

Now, I anticipate that I should be able to produce Ante Post Ratings for all big race entries about month before the race.

I'll be updating you early next week on how to access Ante Post Ratings.


Place Profits

There were no Place Profits selections yesterday.

Place Profits only uses races with 5 to 10 runners;

Because of the large fields over the last week, this reduces the number of selections.

This makes it 4 wins and 5 seconds from the last 10 races (taking the 2 non-runners into account.)


Something to make you smile...

Zen Teachings...

It's number 20 that cracks me up!

1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me for the path is narrow. In fact, just leave me the Hell alone.

2. Sex is like air. It's not that important unless you aren't getting any.

3. No one is listening until you fart.

4. Always remember you're unique. Just like everyone else.

5. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

6. If you think nobody cares whether you're alive or dead, try missing a couple of payments.

7. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

8. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

9. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

10. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

11. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

12. Some days you are the dog, some days you are the tree.

13. Don't worry, it only seems kinky the first time.

14. Good judgment comes from bad experience ... and most of that comes from bad judgment.

15. A closed mouth gathers no foot.

16. There are two excellent theories for arguing with women. Neither one works.

17. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.

18. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

19. We are born naked, wet and hungry, and get slapped on our ass... then things just keep getting worse.

20. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
