focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

For what I thought of as a difficult day's racing, we didn't do too badly.

From the 47 races, 27 of them were won by a top three rated horse.

This equates to a strike rate (for the top three rated horses) of 57.45%.

The highlight of the day, for me, was the 19:10 at Limerick where we got the forecast (one of three races yesterday where we got the first two horses in the right order.)

The forecast paid £50.54 to a £1 stake.

Diamonds and Gold

We had three selections yesterday...

And none of them managed to win.

Wetherby - 17:40 - Jungle Juice - 3rd

Down Royal - 17:45 - Osco Mosco - 4th

Down Royal - 18:50 - Flaxen Fare - 2nd

Yesterday's Results

There were 47 rated races yesterday.

Of those, one race's top rated horse was a non-runner.

From the remaining 46 races, 11 were won by a top rated horse.

This gives a strike rate of 23.91%

Something to make you smile...


An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

The boy asked, "What is this, Father?"

The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is."

While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially.

They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order..

Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous, voluptuous 24 year old blonde woman stepped out.

The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son ...............

"Go get your mother."

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
