Not exactly scientific as I was new to the membership just a year ago, so it was only around last Nov I think i became aware of this thread and was recording in a haphazard way, but I certainly recall a similar downswing at this time of year and in January too. I was just recording the number of plays as well as the quoted asking price

I very much recall that it was a tough period but ties in with the other observation that there are usually losing runs of approx 4 days on the trot that crop up, and some of them do seem to have no wins at all; but that was also noted in the past year

As has the Saturday curse! I think the revising to include maidens, bumper and nurseries will also help. It would be nice if the auto filter tool could be revived for those looking to check on the course data the night before
