A strange, but disappointing start to the new month that offered so much more after kicking off with a nice 7/2 winner last Monday.
That was the highlight of the week and it all went downhill from there. That said, the first five picks of the week all finished in the first four home and went off shorter than advised, so we got the value prices about runners finishing there or thereabouts.
On another week, that would possibly manifest itself into three or four winners and when you're backing horses at an average price of 3.38/1 this week and they're sent off at SPs of 2.35/1, then that's the key to long-term profit.
