    It's because when I get the ratings I don't just get 1 like above ....there's class ....recent form etc all next to each other so although when I post it looks like top 2 are clear....if all the other info isn't backing that up then I'll scrub the race ...I.e it looks like this    ....
    Horse 1  8.4  class 65  recent 70
    Horse 2 8.2 class   64 recent 68
    Horse 3 8.0 class 68 recent 66
    Horse 4 7.8 class 70 recent 66
    Horse 5 7.7 class 69 recent 69 
    And there's a bit more too so I look at tge screen and scratch my head thinking what the hell  so you can see above its at least a 5 Horse race if not more so although the first column looks OK....the whole picture looks crap from a value perspective ...whereas 
    Horse 1 9.0 class  75 recent 90
    Horse 2 8.7 class 73 recent 88 
    Horse 3 8.6class 65 recent 65 
    Horse 4 8.4 class  61 recent   77 
    Now that looks more like it !!!... if I can get 7/2 on top rated and say 10/1 ew on 2nd rated then I'd say that seems like a good bet considering ....so its not just 1 thing it's a compete package

    I've rated about 6 or 7 diff races and they are all bunched up ..I.e on my master ratings I can have a top rated on 450 then the 2nd on 438 ...3rd on 425 etc ....on 4 races I rated the top 4 or 5 or 6 horses were.all within 10pts ...meaning there's no real  value to warrant risking the money ....I didn't rate the plate as I don't tend to have much luck in those types of race ...they become like a,war of attrition after the 12f pole and its who lasts home better on the day so I can't be confident in the ratings ...its like 20 % guesswork and I don't like doing that ......I'm not even mega confident in the race I picked but it was better than all the others based on there's a chance hiya maite could improve considerably tomorrow so it was worth chancing it 
    Normally I can find something but not today .....I mean there's £20000 races with 6 runners ??....just don't know what's going on ....entire meetings with 3 runners ....5 runners ...7 runners ....etc its not good 
    I rated the 150 newc and strike red rated high but there's about 4  horses within close proximity who have a chance on old form but uncertain whether they run to form so with 7/2 on strike with 4 potential dangers it just doesn't appeal to me 
    Factor in ground issues ..I.e form from  from wolv and southwell translates well but not so much ling and kemp then the races just look messy and so open....I look for races where the top 2 or 3 are very strong and a bit ahead of rest of field with lots going in their favour then their prices are Inherently value but not tomorrow .....I've got to trust the ratings and they are saying its a crappy open day so just 1,race I guess 😒😔

    Of course .....the first 6 races I rated were coming up like the first example .....then there was x amount of races with 5 runners ...6 runners etc ...so overall from my perspective it looks crap .....I could just rate the races and have a guess and just have a bet anyway but I don't like risking money unless I think I've got a decent chance of a return .....they sometimes run like donkeys despite having fab ratings but that's racing lol 😆....it frustrates the hell out of me when the the top rated in the 2nd example finishes 12th 🤔🤔🤔....all you can do is move on ...it happens .......
    I really believe the reason I've done so well in past and that they perform well is because I only generally pick the strong races ....I discard probably 70 % of races and sometimes that's the reason I don't post .....if I've been working long shifts then rated 3 races which were crap and I've run out of time I'll just leave it for another day ...I'm not tempted to just stick the crap bets on because I want that holiday  ..and those bets just get me bognor Regis (no offence Intended 😄😄)....I'm sure it's nice lol
