focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

Well, yesterday one of our 2 Diamonds and Gold selections was a non-runner and the other pulled up.

And, for the normal ratings, it was a decent enough day.

There were 26 rated races yesterday.

For 2 of them, the top rated horse was a non-runner.

From the remaining 24 races, 6 were won by a top rated horse.

This equates to a strike rate of 25%

40.25 points (to ISP) were returned to the 24 points staked.

This equates to a POI (Profit on Investment) of 67.71%

This was largely helped by Mortens Leam, our top rated horse in the 15:50 at Fontwell, who did the decent thing an won at 18/1 ISP (30.0 BSP.)

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!

How to Profit from Early Bird Ratings…

20th October 2018

Good morning (again)…

Over the weekend I shall be 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.

However, I shall also be creating a new post to identify other ways of using and benefiting from the ratings.

I’ll be checking on some of the ways that people have been using the morning ratings (FocusRatings.com from which Early Bird Ratings is derived) have been using the ratings over the last 5 years.

Part of the problem is that some of you like Backing, some of you like Laying.

Some like high strike rate, low yield strategies whilst others are happy with a lower strike rate but high priced winners.

So, I’ll try to come up with suggestions that cover all bases.

As always…

My kindest regards

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…

14:00 – Free Love – 3rd

14:35 – Welcoming – 1st @ 2.2 ISP

15:05 – Confessional – 1st @ 19.0 ISP

15:35 – Alemaratalyoum – 1st @ 6.5 ISP

16:05 – Guildhall – 0

16:40 – Time for a Toot – 1st @ 13.0 ISP

17:15 – Smart Illusion – NR

17:50 – Seductive – 0

Platinum

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.
