focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Even though both of our Diamonds and Gold selections let us down...

It was still a nice day, yesterday...

There were 44 rated races yesterday.

In 5 of those races, the top rated horse was a non-runner.

From the remaining 39 races, 9 were won by a top rated horse.

This equates to a strike rate of 23.07%

57.20 points (to ISP) were returned to the 39 points staked.

This equates to a POI (Profit on Investment) of 46.67%

Of course, this was largely helped by Confessional, the 18/1 winner (26.37 BSP) in the 15:05 at Haydock and Time for a Toot, the 12/1 winner (19.0 BSP) in the 16:40 at Haydock.

In fact, yesterday would have been a good day to have gone to Haydock...

I am currently working on a new system to supplement our Diamonds and Gold selections. This system will concentrate on identifying the high priced top rated winners that seem to pop up every day.

I am anticipating 5 selections a week and will be calling this new Free system our Platinum selections.

So far (after many, many hours of poring over spreadsheets) I have identified that most of the big priced winners (like Confessional yesterday) come in races where there are at least 10 runners and the FC price is 8.0 or more.

However, there is still a lot of work to do. I will keep you updated.

Performance Evaluations

For everyone who has ever had an evaluation or performance review just remember, it could have been worse. These are actual quotes taken from United States Federal Government employee performance evaluations:

1. "Since my last report, this employee has reached rock-bottom and has started to dig."

2. "I would not allow this employee to breed."

3. "This employee is really not so much of a has-been, but more of definite
won't be."

4. "Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap."

5. "When she opens her mouth, it seems that it is only to change feet."

7. "This young lady has delusions of adequacy."

8. "He sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them."

9. "This employee is depriving a village somewhere of its idiot."

10. "This employee should go far, and the sooner he starts, the better."

11. "Got a full 6-pack, but lacks the plastic thingy to hold it all together."

12. "A gross ignoramus -- 144 times worse than an ordinary ignoramus."

13. "He doesn't have ulcers, but he's a carrier."

14. "I would like to go hunting with him sometime."

15. "He's been working with glue too much."

16. "He would argue with a signpost."

17. "He brings a lot of joy whenever he leaves the room."

18. "When his IQ reaches 50, he should sell."

19. "If you see two people talking and one looks bored, he's the other one."

20. "A photographic memory but with the lens cover glued on."

21. "A prime candidate for natural de-selection."

22. "Donated his brain to science before he was done using it."

23. "Gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn't coming."

24. "He's got two brain cells, one is lost and the other is out looking for it."

25. "If he were any more stupid, he'd have to be watered twice a week."

26. "If you give him a penny for his thoughts, you'd get change."

27. "If you stand close enough to him, you can hear the ocean."

28. "It's hard to believe he beat out 1,000,000 other sperm."

29. "Some drink from the fountain of knowledge; he only gargled."

30. "Takes him 2 hours to watch '60-minutes'."

31. "The wheel is turning, but the hamster is dead."

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
