We kicked off the week at -4.67pts for August, but I wasn't too concerned as it was Ebor week. I checked and re-checked my logs and yes, Ebor is a good time for me. I've made good money from the meeting every year for as long as I can remember, especially with two year olds, so bring it on!
Sadly, it was a week that disappointed and frustrated in equal measures, York became a graveyard for my personal bets and the three I put up for SotD all failed to make the frame. Thankfully we'd bagged a couple of winners earlier in the week to prevent a second consecutive wipeout.
Both of those winners were however frustratingly subjected to Rule 4 deductions denying us 1.72pts profit, meaning that we enter the run-in for August still 1 winner/2.88pts short of parity. It's far from over, of course, but I think we're going to need three winners before the month is out.
