I ended last week's roundup by saying..."With an upturn in form that must surely be imminent (this Flat season has killed me), I'm still confident that we'll end the year ahead of the bookies, so if you're up for the challenge, so am I." Those who have stuck by the service out of loyalty and efficient bankroll management were rewarded for their patience with our best week in a long time.
We kicked off the week with a hat-trick of winners, all at nice prices and we were so close to adding another 5.5pts on Thursday before getting "done" late by our runner's own stablemate. The week sort of petered out after that, but three winners from six and 7.75pts profit were very welcome indeed.
That said, we're nowhere near out of the woods yet, but one step at a time, eh? We're back in profit (just!) for the year, the overall bottom line is nudging back towards the psychologically massive 500pt barrier. We're still down on the month, but statistically, we're just one winner shy of where we'd like to be, which isn't a position I thought we'd get back to so quickly.
So, we buckle ourselves in and go again...
