A frustrating week that didn't live up to what I'd achieved in the first half of the month, but as I'm always saying, these purple patches can't go on for ever and there will be weeks where we have to give a few quid back to the layers. If nothing else, it might help keep a few accounts open a while longer!
Thankfully, Goring got up on the line on Saturday to win by a nose, ensuring we didn't suffer a total washout and by coming in at 11/4, I was happy enough to emerge from a testing week only 2.25pts down.
It's after weeks like this that we need to remember to focus on the bigger picture, which shows February with a 38%-plus strike rate and an ROI of 65% taking the year to date's percentages to 31.8% and 46.5% respectively.
