Two winners and two runners-up from just 5 runners meant that we almost had a fantastic week here at SotD (I say we, because it's not just me doing this!), but with two 3/1 successes, a 3pt profit on the week is still excellent.
The sharper-eyed amongst you will have noticed that I did my usual half-term disappearing trick, taking a couple of days off, covered again by Steve whose two selections were a non-runner and a 3/1 winner, meaning that his last three picks for SotD have all been winners!
Steve is proving to be an excellent addition to the Geegeez team and is a more than capable replacement for me when I'm not here, so please afford him the patience you've had to show me in the past when things haven't been quite as good as they are now!
And now turning towards the last week of the month, were currently 16.5pts up for February, so you "worst case scenario" types (like myself!) can rest assured that we'll be at least 8.5pts in profit by month end, after our winner on the 15th ensured another profitable month. I will, of course, be striving to add at least another couple of winners, but it will be a good month come what may.
