Hi Sondrio2 (forgive me but I do not know what name you go by on here), I only go EW if I can get at least half my win stake back, in the event of the SotD not winning but being placed. I have taken the view that Chris has put so much effort in to selecting the horse in question, that unplaced is unlikely.
I only mentioned my (Chris’s) performance to date to demonstrate what is possible.
When I first posted on here I stated my strategy and said that I would offer occasional updates , good or bad.
Richard Birch of the RacingPost convinced me of the EW approach if the horse in question and the shape of the market warrants EW, but I accept that it is not to everyone’s taste.
I took out a lifetime membership of GeeGeez and am so glad I bit the bullet.
