focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Yesterday was a fantastic day for our Diamonds and Gold selections...

And a wonderful day for the normal ratings as well, yesterday, it has to be said...

There were 19 rated races yesterday.

In 2 of those races, the top rated horse was a non-runner.

From the remaining 17 races, 6 were won by a top rated horse.

This equates to a strike rate of 35.29%

Bearing in mind that Early Bird Ratings is a ratings agency rather than a tipping service, that's a pretty darn good strike rate!

28.71 points (to ISP) were returned to the 17 points staked.

This equates to a POI (Profit on Investment) of 68.88%

Of course, this was largely helped by Kentford Mallard (a Diamonds and Gold selections), our 10/1 winner (12.64 BSP) in the 14:00 at Plumpton.

Actually, it would be rude of me not to mention the 14:45 at Hereford where...

We got the first three horses in the right order in a 10 horse handicap race.

The Forecast paid £42.73 to a £1 stake and the Tricast paid £510.94 to a £1 stake!

Diamonds and Gold

Hereford - 13:45 - Balkinstown - 4th

Plumpton - 14:00 - Kentford Mallard - 1st @ 10/1 ISP (12.64 BSP.)

Hereford - 15:15 - Whats Occurring - 1st @ 1.66 ISP (1.71 BSP.)

Kempton - 16:30 - Al Mureib - 2nd

Interestingly, both winners were Diamonds and Gold selections whilst the 2 losing horses were just Diamonds selections.

Something to make you smile...
