Not a great week by any stretch of the imagination.
6 selections, 2 non-runners a placer and three also-rans made for a 4pt loss and there's no hiding from the fact that it's going to be mighty difficult to turn a profit for May, unless I can find three winners in the next four days!
Should that unlikely event not come to pass, May will become our first unprofitable month since August 2017 and the third such month since June 2016, hence the reason nobody here at Geegeez is pressing any panic buttons right now.
I would however like to address a couple of queries/concerns I've had pointed out to me...
- No, the selection process hasn't changed
- No, I don't know why they're not winning
- Yes, I do back them myself with real money (£25 stakes)
- Yes, I'm also feeling the pain
- and Yes, I do genuinely think that every one of my picks has a good chance of winning with or without the stats to back it up.
Geegeez thrives based on service, honesty and transparency. We make no excuses during a poor run nor we shout BOOOOOOOOM after a winning selection.
We don't hide when the chips are down and whilst we're not happy with the results right now, we know better times are around the corner and we thank you for your continued support/patience.
