focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...


I've just added about another 100 new people to the free trial of Early Bird Ratings.

I'd like to issue a warm welcome to you newcomers.

Please remember, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask away.

I'm around all day for the next 10 days of the free trial.

There were no Diamonds and Gold selections yesterday but it was a cracking day anyway.

So, lets cut straight to the chase (no pun intended.)

Yesterday's Results...

There were 40 rated races yesterday.

12 of those 40 races were won by a top rated horse.

This gives a Strike Rate of 30%

Some of which were high priced...

Newbury - 13:50 - Feline Groovey - 3.75 ISP (4.0 BSP.)

Yarmouth - 14:00 - Mother of Dragons - 7.0 ISP (8.2 BSP.)

Nottingham - 14:10 - Zain City - 1.91 ISP (1.99 BSP.)

Nottingham - 14:40 - Sharamm - 1.20 ISP (1.24 BSP.)

Yarmouth - 16:45 - Comporta - 5.0 ISP (5.40 BSP.)

Uttoxeter - 18:10 - Outrageous Romana - 8.0 ISP (8.64 BSP.)

Haydock - 18:20 - Fort Jefferson - 1.73 ISP (1.83 BSP.)

Uttoxeter - 19:15 - Linganno Felice - 1.44 ISP (1.48 BSP.)

Leopardstown - 20:05 - Aussie Valentine - 9.0 ISP (9.97 BSP.)

Uttoxeter - 20:15 - Holryale - 2.20 ISP (2.39 BSP.)

Haydock - 20:25 - Mooltazem - 4.0 ISP (4.03 BSP.)

Uttoxeter - 21:15 - Keep the River - 2.1 ISP (2.26 BSP.)

To ISP...

47.33 points were returned to 40 points staked.

This equates to a POI (profit on Investment) of 18.325%

To BSP...

48.85 points (after a 5% deduction for commission) were returned to 40 points staled.

Thus equates to a POI of 22.15%

Now, I don't, for a moment, suggest that you blindly back every top rated horse - that would be madness.

But it does show that the ratings can help you refine your normal betting to help improve profitability.

For example, if one of your betting strategies/systems is to bet on badly beaten favourites which have last run less than 10 days ago (just as an example.)

You might want to add an additional filter to say "and is Early Bird top three Rated"

Yesterday 19 of the 40 races was won by a top three rated horse.

Or, if the horse in question is top rated, you might want to think about doubling your stake?

25% of all races are won by a top rated horse.

Something to make you smile...

Language Lessons...

A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'

'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:

1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.


The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador'), because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
