March 20, 2018 – Morning Review

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

As there was no racing on Sunday, I have decided to extend the current free trial (that some people are on) until tomorrow.

I’ve had many emails from people taking the trial; asking questions and suggesting strategies so I could use a couple of extra days anyway (just so that I can make sure that all are answered.)

I would like to apologise for yesterday’s slightly jumbled ratings (and selections.)

This was due to the abandoned meetings on Sunday.

If a race is abandoned after the ratings have been produced then the ratings doesn’t know about it and, thus, those selections stay on the ratings. For those races/meetings I have to manually update the database to tell the ratings that those races/meetings have been abandoned.

On Sunday, I forgot to do that.

March 18, 2018 – Morning Review

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

I know that some of our members don’t bet on a Saturday…

Ratings or no ratings.

They consider Saturdays too competitive and too confused with the weekend only punters confusing the market.

For the Ratings, Saturdays are either wonderful or just average.

I’m sorry but…

Yesterday was just an average day.

Highlights

Kempton 14:05 – Vocaliser (our second rated horse) won this race at 8.00 ISP. Kayl Blanco, our top rated horse, came second. The Reverse Forecast paid £21.17 to a £2 stake.

Fontwell 14:50 – Banjo Girl (our top rated horse) won this race at 2.35 ISP.

Ottxeter 15:00 – Clyne (our second rated horse) won this race at 11.00 ISP (12.74 BSP.)

March 17, 2018 – Morning Review

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

I can’t say that I was too disappointed with yesterday’s results.

Once again, we did very well with the All Weather races with 10 of the 15 top rated winners coming from them.

I am going to split this morning review into three sections and it seems only proper and correct that I start with Cheltenham.

Cheltenham – Day 4

13:30 – Our third rated horse came third,

14:10 – Our top rated horse, Remilud, came second the race @ 51.0 (80.74 BSP.)

14:50 – Our top rated horse came third.

15:30 – Our third rated horse won the race @ 6.0.0 (6.80 BSP.)

16:10 – Our top rated horsecame nowhere. Our second rated horse, Pacha de Poder, won the race @ 26.0 ISP (27.76 BSP.) Our third rated horse came third @ 15.0

16:50 – Nothing for this race.

17:30 – Our top rated horse came second.

Other Highlights

Musselburgh 11:30 – Morning with Ivan (our second rated horse) won this race at 5.50 ISP (6.0 BSP.)

Musselburgh 12:05 – Our top rated horse, Bedrock, won @ 1.44 ISP (1.60 BSP.)

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

Well, an underwhelming day, yesterday.

They happen from time to time.

I am going to split this morning review into three sections and it seems only proper and correct that I start with Cheltenham.

Cheltenham – Day 3

13:30 – Nothing doing in this race.

14:10 – Our top two rated horses was a non-runner. The second rated horse, Delta Work, duly stepped up and won the race @ 7.0 ISP (8.2 BSP.)

14:50 – Our top rated horse, Un de Sceaux, came second.

15:30 – Our second rated horse came third.

16:10 – Our top rated horse was a non-runner.

16:50 – Our top rated horse, Champayne Lady, came third @ 84.0 ISP (390.0 BSP.)

17:30 – The race was won by our third rated horse, Missed Approach, @ 9.0 ISP (10.5 BSP.)

Other Highlights

Towcester 13:20 – our third rated horse won this race @ 29.0 ISP (44.0 BSP.)

March 15, 2018 – Morning Review

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

Another exciting day (for me, at least.)

And another day where we got a 50% strike rate for our System Bets.

I am going to split this morning review into three sections and it seems only proper and correct that I start with Cheltenham.

Cheltenham – Day 2

13:30 – Our top rated horse came second but I am a bit concerned that we didn’t spot Samcro. John (who is on the free trial) alerted me to this issue and I’ll look into it today. It could be down to the fact that all of Samcro’s form happened in Ireland. Whatever, I’ll identify why Samcro wasn’t top rated.

14:10 – Our top two rated horses came first and second – unfortunately, in the wrong order. The Reverse Forecast paid £10.85 to the £2 stake.

14:50 – Nothing doing in this race.

15:30 – Our top rated horse came second and our second rated horse came first. The Reverse Forecast paid £3.89 to £2 in stakes.

16:10 – Nothing doing in this race.

16:50 – I don’t suppose that it makes any difference but, our second rated horse did win @ 34.0 ISP (50.0 BSP.)

17:30 – Our second rated horse won at 26.0 ISP (29.0 BSP.) Our top rated horse came third.

Other Highlights

Huntingdon 14:25 – Our top rated horse came second and our second rating horse came first. The Reverse Forcast paid £17.06 to a £2 stake.

Southwell (AW) 14:35 – Our top rated horse, Line House, won this race @ 2.625 ISP (2.76 BSP.) Our third rated horse came second.

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

Well, it was a pretty exciting day for me, yesterday.

Obviously, the recent bad weather had me a bit worried about Cheltenham but those worries turned out to be a bit groundless.

I am going to split this morning review into three sections and it seems only proper and correct that I start with Cheltenham.

Cheltenham – Day 1

13:30 – In the first race of the festival we faced, for the first time in the history (albeit, a short history) of the ratings, a conundrum ; one that I knew would happen one day – I just didn’t anticipate that it would happen in, arguably, the greatest festival of the year.

You see, in the 13:30 at Cheltenham, the top two rated horses had the same ADR (the actual ratings number.) When this happens, the code orders those two horses in forecast starting price order. Thus, Kalashnikov and Summerville Boy both had an ADR of 8.75. This is a very high rating and it was obvious that it would be one of these two horses that would win the race.

However, the ratings made Kalashnikov as the top rated horse as it had a forecast starting price of 5.50 and Summerville Boy became the second rated horse as it had a forecast stating price of 8.0.

January 26, 2018 – Morning Review

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

Although the strike rate didn’t seem too good yesterday (there were 33 races – in one of them, the top rated horse was a non-runner) and we had 9 top rated winners.

Thus our strike rate (for the top rated horse) was 28.125%.

Now…

That’s not too shabby and we have to remember that…

Strike Rate is Vanity,

It’s Profits that Count!

However, one thing stood out as I watched the results coming…

The prices of the winners!

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

Another day and another abandoned meeting…

This time it was Exeter.

Still we got some pretty good racing from the remaining 3 meetings.

We didn’t get any really high priced winners…

Although in the last race of the day (the 19:45 at Kempton) our top rated horse won at 6.50 ISP (7.60 BSP.)

We were blindly profitable to ISP and our free system had a 100% strike rate and made a profit on stakes (to ISP) of 205%!!!

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

Having had rather a busy month…

And Christmas and New Year’s really didn’t help – too much food, too much wine…

I’m going to try to send you a little Morning Review when I can.

It won’t be 7 days a week but I’ll do my best.

Yesterday

There were 19 races yesterday; one of our top rated horses was a non-runner.

That leaves 18 races.

From those 18 races, 8 of them were won by an Advance Ratings top rated horse.

That equates to a strike rate of 44.44%.

To ISP we had 19.025 points returned to 18 points staked.

Thus, giving us a profit on stakes of 5.69%.

November 14, 2017 – How to read the ratings…

A walk through the Ratings PDF

Below is a screenshot of one race from the daily ratings.

Every race has two lines to describe the race.

The first line (in bold) shows the course the time of the race, the title of the race and the race prize.

The next line shows more specific details about the race such as distance, number of runners and going.

November 14, 2017 – Who was Clive Holt?

Hello…

A rather haphazard gambler, Clive Holt is best know for the books that he wrote and, of course, his legendary ratings system, FineForm.

Before becoming a professional gambler, he worked at the Electricity Board in England.

His father introduced him to gambling and Holt started going to race courses in the early 1960s.

Although he didn’t keep track of his bets, he experienced moderate success, sometimes winning as much as £1,000 (a lot of money back then.)

After a losing streak, Holt decided to start keeping better track of how he was doing.

“It probably had the greatest influence on my future success. As the figures and the percentages built up before me, it was clear that I was becoming more and more analytical.”

November 14, 2017 – How the ratings were created…

Hello…

I actually run another ratings agency, Focus Ratings (which you may have heard of.)

However, I never stop looking at ways of improving Focus Ratings and realised that I need another layer of ratings to sit on top of the current Focus Ratings strategy (call R4) to create a new and improved strategy (to be called R5.)

So, to create this extra layer I decided to start again from scratch loosely inspired by Clive Holt’s Fine Form strategy.

What I didn’t expect was to find that the ratings I produced would be “out of the box” profitable!

Using 2016 as a data set, the top rated horse has a strike rate of 25.76% and returned 13.77% level stakes profit (to ISP) on the stakes.

I am in the process of working out how to add the new ratings to Focus Ratings (to improve the accuracy of that service) but…

With results this good I decided to publish Advance Ratings as a stand alone service (whilst also adding it to Focus Ratings.)

November 14, 2017 – Why use Ratings?

Hello…

I am going to try to explain why horse racing ratings have a real place to pay in every punter’s arsenal and why you should be using ratings in addition to your normal horse selection process.

So, let’s start with the obvious…

1). Filter out the non-contenders.

With Advance Ratings, in 2016 50% of all winners came from the top three rated horses. And that was for all field sizes; imagine if you have a 17 horse handicap race and know that you can reduce it into a three horse race by just looking at the three real contenders.
