For one reason or other, last week's update didn't appear, so here's what has happened in the last fortnight.
February started as badly as January finished as the 7 losing bets in a row that ended the previous month turned to a run of 16 before Bosham's timely 6/1 winner last Thursday. A huge sigh of relief was given and with fresh impetus behind us, a 5/1 winner was quickly found two days later to ensure a small profit was made over the fortnight.
That said, we had been a touch unlucky in the run up to those two winners with a few very close defeats for horses priced at 6/1, 13/2 and 5/1 with a win for any one (or more!) of them putting a whole new complexion on the month. I'm hoping that we're turning a corner now and we can crack on towards more profit in the second half of the month.
