focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

I didn't have a bet yesterday as none of the races really fit the profile for races that I feel comfortable with.

I haven't made my mind up about the 13:35 at Auteuil yet.

For those of you interested in French racing, there is an interesting article on the Racinf Post that explains some of the course.

The link to the article is... https://www.racingpost.com/news/french-racing/racecourse-guides-essential-insight-into-the-french-tracks-in-action/433553

Now, I'm just going to grab a shower and then I'll be ready to watch the 7:25 at Morphettville (Aus) which I rated yesterday.

Other Ratings

As I promised...

I have produced ratings for today's big Australian race (Morphettville – 7:25 – The Furphy Goodwood– Group 1 – 6 furlongs - £135,450.)

The link to the Australian ratings is... http://focusratings.com/australian/AustralianRatings-2020-05-16.pdf

Now, I don't know anything about Australian racing but, on the ratings PDF, the top three rated look very clear from the other 12 runners.


Something to make you smile...

Dilbert

Dilbert's Salary Theorem states that Engineers and scientists can never earn as much as business executives and sales people.

This theorem can now be supported by a mathematical equation based on the following two postulates:

Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power.

Postulate 2: Time is Money.

As every engineer knows: Power = Work / Time

Since: Knowledge = Power, then Knowledge = Work/Time, and Time = Money, then Knowledge = Work/Money.

Solving for Money, we get: Money = Work / Knowledge.

Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, money approaches nfinity,
regardless of the amount of work done.

Conclusion: The less you know, the more you make. Bummer.


New Entrance Policy in Heaven

One day, Heaven suddenly became extremely full, and something had to be done.

So The Lord decided to have St. Peter wait at the gate and ask everyone how they died. If it was a grisly story they told, they could go ahead into Heaven.

But if not, they had to go to Hell.

The first man walks up and St. Peter tells him what's happening.

"You see, Heaven is quite full today, and we have to ask everyone how they died. If it sounds good, you can go ahead. But if not, you go to Hell."

"Ok," the man says. "Well, for awhile I'd been suspecting my wife of cheating on me. So today I thought I'd leave work early and catch her. Sure enough, I got to my apartment and she was lying naked on the bed. I ran all over the apartment searching for the man but couldn't find him.

Then I remembered that we lived on the 25th floor of an apartment building, and we have a balcony. And there was the man, hanging off my balcony. I beat at his hands and he just wouldn't let go, so I ran and got a hammer and beat his hands until he fell into the bushes below. I saw he was still alive so I got the refrigerator and pushed over the edge on top of him. But the strain of the effort gave me a heart attack and I died.

"Wow!" St. Peter said. "That really is bad! You can go ahead..."

The next man walked up and St. Peter gave his spiel about Heaven being full and the man would have to tell his story.

"Ok," the second man said. "So I live on the 26th floor of an apartment building, and everyday I do exercises on my balcony. Well, today I fell over the edge, but luckily I caught the railing of the balcony below me."

"Suddenly, this man came running out and started beating at my hands. He ran back inside and I thought I was safe, but then he came back out with a hammer and beat my hands again. I finally fell off, but luckily I landed in the bushes below and they saved my life. But that wasn't enough for the man because he pushed his refrigerator over the edge and it landed on me and killed me. And now I'm here."

"Wow, that's a good one too! You can go ahead..."

The third man walked up and St. Peter again gave his spiel about Heaven being full and the man would have to tell his story of how he died.

"Ok," the third man said. "I don't know what happened. I was hiding naked inside this refrigerator..."


The Birth of Woman

One day, after what seemed an eternity in the Garden of Eden, Adam called out to God, "Lord, I have a problem."

"What's the problem, Adam?" God replied.

"Lord, I know you created me and have provided for me and surrounded me with this beautiful garden and all these wonderful animals, but I'm just not happy."

"Oh, and why is that, Adam?" came the reply from the heavens.

"Lord, I know you created this place for me, with all this lovely food and all the beautiful animals, but I'm lonely."

"Well Adam, in that case I have the perfect solution. I shall create a 'Woman' for you."

"What's a 'Woman', Lord?"

"This 'Woman' will be the most intelligent, sensitive, caring, and beautiful creature I have ever created. She will be so intelligent that she can figure out what you want before you want it. She will be so sensitive and caring that she will know your every mood and how to make you happy. Her beauty will rival that of the heavens and earth. She will unquestioningly care for your every need and desire. She will be the perfect companion for you," replied the heavenly voice.

"Wow, she sounds great, Lord."

"She will be, but this is going to cost you, Adam."

"How much will this 'Woman' cost me Lord?" Adam inquired.

"She'll cost you your right arm, your right leg, an eye, an ear, and your left testicle."

Adam pondered this for some time, with a look of deep thought and concern on his face. Finally Adam said to God, "Ehhh, what can I get for a rib?"

And that's how modern woman was created.
