focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A bit of a bumpy day for me yesterday...

As one of the overnight scripts that run on my server,

Failed to run.

As a result, I had some catching up to do in the morning.

Still, all appears to be working well now and the 2am early morning test ratings look fine.

Obviously, it's the start of Royal Ascot today and I rather suspect that you will all be concentrating on that.

Compass Ratings

There is no racing at Happy Valley this week.

I assume that this is because of Royal Ascot as...

There is no mention of any problems in the South China Morning Post.

I will putting up the ratings for Sunday's meeting at Sha Tin as soon as I can.

In the 17:45 at Lion d'Angers (FR) our top rated horse was a non-runner.

There are no International Graded.Group of Listed races today.


Ante Post Ratings

Later this 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.

Something to make you smile...

When I finally left my last place of work, it was just like being released from prison, as I was free to do whatever I wanted to.

Stay safe and healthy.

As always...
