focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

If you check the first race on the ratings for tomorrow’s racing at Sha Tin, you’ll notice that none of the horses have a CPR.

This is because the have no form.

I am working on some new code to identify those sort of races and display the message… “There is insufficient data for this race” as I do for Focus Ratings.

However, rather than rush it (and almost certainly getting it wrong) I’ll have it fixed for Tuesday’s ratings for Wednesday’s meeting at Happy Valley.

So, my advice is to ignore the 5:30am race.

The only stand out race for me is the 10:10 where our top rated horse is Fantastic Show which is, according to the Racing Post, the forecast favourite. The jockey, Joao Moreira, has won 1 out of every 4 races that he ridden in over the last 14 days.

Something to make you smile…

Murphy’s Lesser-Known Dictums

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don’t.

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there’s a 90% probability you’ll get it wrong.

The things that come to those who wait will be the things left by those who got there first.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

When you go into court, you are putting yourself In the hands of 12 people who weren’t smart enough to get out of jury duty.


Bugs

A boy asks his father, “Dad, are bugs good to eat?”

“That’s disgusting. Don’t talk about things like that over dinner,” the dad replies.

After dinner the father asks, “Now, son, what did you want to ask me?”

“Oh, nothing,” the boy says. “There was a bug in your soup, but now it’s gone.”


Poison

There was this guy at a bar, just looking at his drink.

He stays like that for a half hour.

Then a big trouble making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy, & just drinks it all down.

The poor man starts crying.

The truck driver says, “Come on man, I was just joking.

Here, I’ll buy you another drink. I just can’t stand to see a man cry.”

“No, it’s not that,” the man replies, wiping his tears, “This day is the worst of my life. First, I oversleep & I go in late to my office. My outraged boss fires me. When I leave the building to go to my car, I find out it was stolen. The police say they can do nothing. I get a cab to go home, & when I get out, I remember I left my wallet. The cab driver just drives away. I go inside my house where I find my wife in bed with the gardener. I leave my home, come to this bar, & just when I was thinking about putting an end to my life, you show up & drink my poison.”
