focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Another outstanding day, yesterday.

There were 48 rated races yesterday.

From these, in 1 of the races the top rated horse was a non-runner.

From the remaining 47 races, 11 were won by a top rated horse.

This equates to a strike rate of 23.40%

72.975 points (to ISP) were returned to the 47 points staked.

This equates to a POI (Profit on Investment) of 55.26%

Of course, this was largely helped by the 25/1 winner in the 15:35 at Ripon.
