focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well...

Saturdays are generally either very good or...

Very bad.

Yesterday was strange in that it was in between.

We got 13 winners from the 59 races (taking the non runner into account) which equates to a strike rate of 22.03%

However, we did get winners up to 33/1!

Here are the highlights...

Chester - 3:55 - Confessional - 1st at 17.0 ISP (20.0 BSP)

Lingfield - 4:15 - Rose Berry - 1st at 5.0 ISP (6.2 BSP)

Lingfield - 4:50 - Bamako du Chatelet - 1st at 5.5 ISP (6.8 BSP)

Chester - 5:05 - Cornborough - 1st at 13.0 ISP (16.50 BSP)

Musselburgh - 5:45 - Tellovi - 1st at 34.0 ISP (50.0 BSP)

In the 5.05 at Chester, we actually got the Trifecta - the Trifecta paid £299.50 to a £1 stake.

As you can see, just from those 5 highlight races, had you blindly backed the top rated horse in every race (which would be a really silly thing to do) you would have made a really decent profit on the day!

Diamonds and Gold

Bath - 14:00 - Rosamour - 3rd

Listowel - 14:20 - Silver Star - NR

Musselburgh - 14:55 - Implicit - 2nd

Lingfield - 15:05 - Salateen - 2nd

Doncaster - 15:35 - Dee Ex Bee - 4th

Something to make you smile...

Dividing Nuts

On the outskirts of town, there was a big old pecan tree by the cemetery fence.

One day two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts.

"One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said one boy.

Several were dropped and rolled down toward the fence.

Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle.

As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery.

He slowed down to investigate.

Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me."

He just knew what it was.

"Oh my," he shuddered, it's Satan and the Lord dividing the souls at the cemetery.

He jumped back on his bike and rode off.

Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along.

"Come here quick," said the boy, "you won't believe what I heard. Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls."

The man said, "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk."

When the boy insisted, though, the man hobbled to the cemetery.

Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me."

The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been tellin' the truth. Let's see if we can see the devil himself."

Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still unable to see anything.

The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of Satan.

At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. And one last one for you. That's all. Now let's go get those nuts by the fence, and we'll be done."

They say the old guy made it back to town five minutes before the boy.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
