Focus Ratings Review

They say…

“Focus Ratings is a ratings service designed to aid you and help you narrow the field so that you can concentrate on the real contenders.”

We say…

The latest product that my team will be taking a look at in the coming weeks is Focus Ratings by Keith Eckstein.

So, what is Focus Ratings? Well, it’s a horse racing analysis system which selects the top three rated horses from each race and sends out a list of all selected horses every day at 10:00 a.m. Keith claims that the top rated horse picked out by the system won 26.09% of the time in 2013 to date.

We’ve just joined and our review will be along shortly – sign up to our twitter feed to be the first to hear about it.

Full membership to Focus Ratings normally costs £10 + VAT per month. Alternatively there is a monthly subscription available costing £25 + VAT.

Initial View

This is going to be interesting as they send a long list of varied ratings – and I cant realistically deal with them all here! What I will do is record the profit and loss per day on the top rated alone plus the top three all to level stakes – though I will look at other options if I get a minute…! The first figure will be top rated only each time….

Final Review for Focus Ratings

First things first with the most difficult review I have yet to do (I am sure they have something else up their sleeves for me though) – this is NOT just a ratings service and I have had to (for time constraint reasons) define which aspects to work on form the list of possibilities. They told me, and I quote

“I would be grateful if you could let your readers know that we are a ratings service rather than a tipping service; that just stops people thinking that they can get rich just by blindly betting on the ratings. “

They do offer incredible support options, ideas, all sorts of things to help you make the most of the ratings but I have to be realistic and fair in the way I review any system or service.
Now my difficulty was that with a list of ratings that include TWELVE different ratings that include both Bet Engine formats and Unique trainer/jockey combinations, I chose, rightly or wrongly, to record the results of a) the top rated only and b) the top three rated, all backed blindly to 1pt level stakes. Whether this is a fair way or not to do things, I am not so sure…please read on!

Statistics.

Percentages:

Top rated

Bets: 1778
Winners: 454
Losers: 1324
Percentage profitable bets: 25.53%
Profit to suggested (varying) stakes: -124.29pts

Top three rated:

Bets: 5296
Winners: 926
Losers: 4370
Percentage profitable bets: 17.48%
Profit to suggested (varying) stakes: -1011.49pts

The best bits.

Regular e mails on time every single day with no exception. Covers British and Irish racing and gives out plenty of winners at good prices on occasions and to be fair, some pretty amazing forecasts as well, tricasts even!

But on the negative side…..

Simply not enough winners backing the ratings blindly but as noted above, that is not advised. However that is not an unfair way to record results and the losses do at least imply there is a lot of work to be done if you want to turn a profit.

Conclusions:

A hard one to sum up – there are enough winners and forecasts to suggest that with a clever staking plan money can be made (and with a big enough bank to cover losses) -100/1 plus forecasts did spring up but early in the review I tried to cover them as well and overall they did still make a loss (I covered the top three in combination forecasts) backed blindly. In conclusion I actually do believe that as ratings figures go, these are up with the very best of them but it will take a cleverer man than me to either fund the losing runs or find a way to make them make me money – though I would not put anyone off having a trial run of a month or so to see if they can do better?

Thursday 05 December

And so to the last day of a long and complicated (hard work) review – 24 top rated giving just the five winners and a loss – 73 top three rated for 14 winners – and more losses.

Overall P/L -120.59pts (-983.91pts)

Sunday 01 December

A bit quieter today with 17 top rated handing out 6 winners four a small loss but an amazing 54 top three rated and 13winners four a juicy profit which is unusual.

Thursday 28 November

35 top rated 11 winners and a small loss (but that is frustrating when you are talking a near 33% strike rate), plus 107 top three rated but 21 winners and a big loss -plenty of winners but I cannot get a handle on how to profit from them?

Overall P/L -109.8282pts (-888.68pts)

Saturday 23 November

This is so frustrating! Lots of winners form the ratings, forecasts, everything – but as of yet I cannot work out how to turn that in to profit and all I can do is report as I have so far – 44 top rated 6 winners, 128 top three rated 17 winners – and both losing out to level stakes.

Today’s P/L -26.34pts (-23.12pts)
Overall P/L -119.1082pts (-868.21pts)

Overall P/L -75.8532pts (-786.325pts)

Friday 15 November

I so hate reviewing these ratings as I have chosen two options (top rated only and top 3) but am acutely aware there is a long list of other ways to use or utilise the figures, but there are only so many hours in the day! Facts are that 37 top rated gave 11 winners (for a small loss but plenty of winners for those who use staking systems?), but 104 top three rated giving 18 winners but another biggish loss.

Today’s P/L -6.4pts (-29.65pts)
Overall P/L -60.8932pts (-727.705pts)

Thursday 14 November

27 top rated for just the 2 winners and a big loss, 82 top three rated and nine winners (also a loss), a pretty bad day for a change.

Overall P/L -54.4932pts (-698.055pts)

Wednesday 13 November

30 top rated for 7 winners and a loss, 93 top three rated and seventeen winners (also a loss) – but plenty of winners and some decent enough forecasts.

Overall P/L -31.5032pts (-660.765pts)

Tuesday 12 November

Overall P/L -25.8632pts (-642.625pts)

Monday 11 November

18 top rated gave 7 winners while 55 top three rated only gave 12 winners, wasting my time there I think?

Today’s P/L +2.73pts (-18.31pts)
Overall P/L -14.1432pts (-623.255pts)

Sunday 10 November

Very hard to review this product as they offer so much more than I am using but we have to draw the line somewhere – suffice to say I would ask ever so nicely if you could read my final review when it comes as opposed to the plain old figures produced each day (pretty please).

Today’s P/L -5.74pts (-18.86pts)
Overall P/L -16.8732pts (-604.945pts)

Saturday 09 November

A good run for the top rated – 34 top rated 12 winners and 100 top three rated for 23 winners.

Overall P/L -38.1932pts (-586.815pts)

Tuesday 05 November

Tuesday 29 October

So much maths and so little time lol – 25 top rated only gave the 3 winners, 76 top three rated fared a little better with 12 winners – neither were profitable though.

Today’s P/L -16.625pts (-28.775pts)
Overall P/L -12.1065pts (-387.983pts)

Irish racing gave us 13 top rated (one winner) and 39 top three rated (6 winners), but nothing inspiring…

Monday 14 October

28 primary bets 9 winners and a profit, 84 overall (top three bets) 15 winners and a loss, and a loss on the forecasts.

Today’s P/L +5.075pts (-14.612pts)
Overall P/L +22.73pts (-128.158pts)

Sunday 13 October

24 bets 8 winners for the top rated, 69 bets 9 winners top three, disastrous day on the forecasts!

Today’s P/L +18.05pts (-20.95pts)
Overall P/L +17.655pts (-113.546pts)

Saturday 12 October

32 bets and just the 5 winners for the tip rated, 96 bets and 17 winners for the tip three – and yes a profit from the forecasts today (but no, I can’t record everything).

Today’s P/L -11.598pts (-0.489pts)
Overall P/L -0.395pts (-92.596pts)

Friday 11 October

Its hard work this one! 34 bets 6 winners for the top rated, 100 runners and 16 winners for the top three – and another loss on the forecasts (so I might stop bothering with them!).

Today’s P/L -5.75pts (-24.07pts)
Overall P/L +11.233pts (-92.08pts)

Thursday 10 October

34 bets and 13 winners for the top rated saw us make a profit on the day,though we only added four more winners via backing all of the top three rated – and the forecasts made a loss too for those interested?

Today’s P/L +17.425pts (-10.2pts)
Overall P/L +16.983pts (-68.01pts)

Wednesday 09 October

Blimey – a poor day but then its early doors yet. Top rated gave just 4 winners form 34 bets, top three gave 11 winers from 103 bets, and forecasts lost over 160pts if you followed them to all combos.

Today’s P/L -22pts (-47.625pts)
Overall P/L -0.442pts (-57.81pts)

Tuesday 08 October

35 runners and a whopping 14 winners for the top rated today – with the second and third rated only adding five more winners. Out of interest (if you like to play that way), the combination forecasts for all three rated horses also made a profit today (226.87 points to be precise), but I cant record every option!

Today’s P/L +35.683pts (-3.88pts)
Overall P/L +21.558pts (-10.185pts)

Monday 07 October

23 bets on the top rated saw just the two winners at odds of 11/10 and 2/1, while backing the top three gave us 69 bets and 9 winners – however, it is only fair to point out this is a a ratings service and it is my choice how I deal with those figures – the top three also came up with eight winning forecasts BUT a loss again if you covered the top three in all combinations (using CSF as the return figure).

Today’s P/L -18.9pts (-11.58pts)
Overall P/L -14.125pts (-6.305pts)

Sunday 06 October

Two sets of results per day (how I love my work!!), with 24 races rated we had six winners, 71 using all three (one non runner) and 15 winners – and no, I am not going to name the horses and odds unless the boss insists!

Today’s P/L +4.775pts (+5.275pts)
Overall P/L +4.775pts (+5.275pts)
