focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

One winner and one second placed horse from our top rated horse (from 8 races)…

Isn’t stellar performance but, it sort of reminds me that Compass Ratings is just that; a ratings service and not a tipping service.

I am still drowning in data, trying to work out draw bias and jockey stats but, one thing is for sure…

Sha Tin and Happy Valley need to be treated as two very different racecourses.

A big thank you to everyone who has sent me links to help me with this work; I will update you all once I am absolutely sure that I have got things right.

Something to make you smile…

Three Old Men…

Three old men were sitting around and talking.

The 80 year-old said, ‘The best thing that could happen to me would just to be able to have a good pee.

I stand there for twenty minutes, and it dribbles and hurts.

I have to go over and over again.’

The 85 year-old said, ‘The best thing that could happen to me is if I could have one good bowel movement. I take every kind of laxative I can get my hands on and it’s still a problem.’

Then the 90 year-old said, ‘That’s not my problem. Every morning at 6:00 am sharp, I have a good long pee. At 6:30 am sharp I have a great bowel movement. The best thing that could happen to me would be if I could wake up before 7:00 am.


A guy sits at a bar in a skyscraper restaurant high above the city. He slams a shot of tequila, goes over to the window and jumps out.

The guy sitting next to him can’t believe what he just saw. He’s more surprised when, 10 minutes later, the same guy walks back into the bar and sits down next to him.

The astonished onlooker asks, “How did you do that? I just saw you jump out the window, and we’re hundreds of feet above the ground!”

The jumper responds by slurring, “Well, I don’t get it either. I slam a shot of tequila, and when I jump out the window, the tequila makes me slow down right before I hit the ground.

Watch.” He takes a shot, goes to the window and jumps out.

The other guy runs to the window and watches as the guy falls to just above the sidewalk, slows down and lands softly on his feet.

A few minutes later, the jumper walks back into the bar.

The other guy has to try it, too, so he orders a shot of tequila. He slams it and jumps out the window.

As he reaches the bottom, he doesn’t slow down at all. SPLAT!

The first guy orders another shot of tequila.

The bartender shakes his head. “You’re really an a**hole when you’re drunk, Superman.”




Whatever you are up to today…

Stay safe and healthy.

As always…

My kindest regards
