From the sublime (five winners from six) last week to the ridiculous wipeout of 0 from 6 this time around was both frustrating and disappointing in equal measures.
4 placers from 6, including a couple of very narrow defeats shows the selections are decent enough, but were a very timely reminder of the narrow margins we work with in our sport (don't forget, last week's successes included a winner by half a length, one by a neck and two by a nose) and I did say last week that it was a case of swings and roundabouts.
July's numbers still look impressive and if we can pick up another couple of winners before the month is out, that would be a great result.
