focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I am not going to comment on today's ratings as I have made a small change to take draw bias into account but, only for Happy Valley.

I have back tested the change over the last 2 year's data and it shows a decent improvement.

Daniel (our man in Hong Kong - sort of) shared this with me yesterday afternoon...

"The Racecards are up on the SCMP Racing site.

Down below the race card are the horses that had trouble in running - always worth reading.

To the right is a short vets report which is also worth noting, one of these horses could have been amongst your selections so it's worth taking on board the available information, I don't always remember to check it but it's worth a look if you have time."

Once again, thank you very much for your help, Daniel.

The link to the SCMP website is...

Actually, there is quite a lot of information at the bottom of each racecard page.

Something to make you smile...

A guy is late for an important meeting...

But he can't find a place to park.

In desperation, he begins to pray. "Please Lord, if you help me find a parking stall right now, I promise to go to church every Sunday and never drink vodka again!"

A moment later, he sees a beautiful empty spot right next to the entrance.

"Never mind. Found one!"

Two bikers...

There were two guys on a motorcycle driving down the road.

The driver was wearing a leather jacket that didn't have a zipper or any buttons.

Finally he stopped the bike and told the other guy,"I can't drive anymore with the air hitting me in my chest."

After thinking for a while he decided to put the jacket on backwards to block the air from hitting him.

So they were driving down the road and they came around this curve and crashed.

The farmer that lived there called the police and told them what happened.

The police asked him, "Are either of them showing any lifesigns?"

The farmer then said, "Well, that first one was, 'til I turned his head around the right way

Jake's Friends...

All of Jake's friends always got mad at him cause no matter how bad a situation was he would always say "it could be worse".

Finally his friends decided to make up something that he couldn't say "it could be worse" about.

When they were playing golf one day Steve said to Jake, "did you hear what happened to Fred?".

Jake said no and asked what happened.

Steve said that Fred came home Thursday and found his wife in bed with another man and killed them both and then turned the gun on himself.

Jake said oh that's horrible but "it could be worse".

"How could it be any worse than that", Steve asked.

"Well", Jake said, "if it happened a day earlier, I'd be dead."


Jack strode into ‘John’s Stable’ looking to buy a horse.

“Listen here” said John, “I’ve got just the horse your looking for, the only thing is, he was trained by an interesting fellow. He doesn’t go and stop the usual way. The way to get him to stop is to scream heyhey the way to get him to go is to scream Thank God."

Jim nodded his head, “fine with me, can I take him for a test run?”

Jim was having the time of his life "this horse sure could run: he thought to himself.

Jim was speeding down the dirt road when he suddenly saw a cliff up ahead.

“Stop!” screamed Jim, but the horse kept on going.

No matter how much he tried he could not remember the words to get it to stop.

“Yoyo” screamed Jim but the horse just kept on speeding ahead.

It was 5 feet from the cliff when Jim suddenly remembered “heyhey!” Jim screamed.

The horse skidded to a halt just 1 inch from the cliff.

Jim could not believe his good fortune, he looked up to the sky, raised his hands in the air, breathed a deep sigh of relief and said with conviction “Thank God.”

Mean Boss...

The CEO of a large company was walking to the cafeteria along with two of his secretaries.

Upon tripping on a bottle, a genie appeared and asked the threesome if they would like to each make a wish.

The first secretary excitedly exclaimed, “I wish I was on a beach in a tropical island!”

Immediately her wish was granted.

The next secretary proclaimed, “I wish I was on a tour of France!”

Immediately her wish too, was granted.

Being that it was now his turn to make a wish the CEO exclaimed “I want the two of them back in their offices right after lunch!”





Whatever you are up to today...

Stay safe and healthy.

As always...

My kindest regards
