6620418Good morning…

I spent much of yesterday looking at those horses that are top on Focus Ratings (R4) and also top on Advance Ratings but…

From a Win Backing point of view.

You can check the spreadsheet which is available at… http://focusratings.com/docs/GB_master_win01.xlsx

1). The first tab shows all top rated (on both, independent ratings.)

Well, almost; I have only used those races where there are 5 runners or more. This makes sense for Place Betting but, for Win Backing, the prices paid for the smaller field races don’t, in my opinion, outweigh the risks.

I have also removed those horses that didn’t finish their last race.

There is no scientific reason for this but, by doing so, the overall strike rate improves.

I can’t find any evidence that a horse that fell in its last race in going to fall in the next race (or pull up or run off) but…

I do get the feeling that they are raced less hard than they would have been had they finished their last race.

2). The second tab shows the performance for individual race types.

3). The third tab shows the same data but I have removed the unprofitable race types. Doing this gives a 32.77% strike rate and a 6.72% POI (to BSP with 2% conmission removed) and an average of 7.2 races a day.

However, if you scroll down you will see that I have refined these races types to give 2,7 races a day with a strike rate of 36.56% and a POI of 14.63%. Scroll even further down and you;ll see that I have further refined the race type to give us 5 races a week but with a strike rate of 41.35% and a POI of 30.48%

4). The next three tabs do exactly the same thing but only for those races where the top rated horse has a Confidence of 130% or higher.

The last two tabs show what happens if you include Class as a differentiator.

As you will see, using these selections, it is relatively easy to come up with profitable systems.

Today I shall write the code to generate a PDF (on a daily basis) showing those horses that are top rated on both Focus Ratings (R4) and Advance Ratings.

Something to make you smile…

18 year old Italian girl…

An eighteen-year-old Italian girl tells her mom that she has missed her period for two months.

Very worried, the mother goes to the drugstore and buys a pregnancy kit.

The test result shows that the girl is pregnant.

Shouting, cursing, crying, the mother says, “Who was the pig that did this to you? I want to know!”

The girl picks up the phone and makes call.

Half an hour later a Ferrari stops in front of their house; a mature and distinguished Englishman with gray hair and impeccably dressed in a very expensive suit steps out of it and enters the house.

He sits in the living room with the father, the mother and the girl, and tells them: “Good morning, your daughter has informed me of the problem. However, I can’t marry her because of my personal family situation, but I’ll take charge.

“If a girl is born I will bequeath her 2 retail stores, a townhouse, beach villa and a $1,000,000 bank account.”

“If a boy is born, my legacy will be a couple of factories and $2,000,000 bank account.”

“If it is twins, a factory and $1,000,000 each. However, if there is a miscarriage…”

At this point, the father, who had remained silent, places a hand firmly on the man’s shoulder and tells him, “You’ll have sex with her again!”
