A funny (funny strange as opposed to funny amusing) kind of week that started the way the previous week had ended ie with me scratching about for a bit of form, but Final Fling's heavy ground success on Tuesday seemed to spark something of an upturn in results, even if those weren't realised at the cash tills.
I'm not happy about losing 1.67pts on the week, but we ended the week with three placers and January is still showing a healthy profit, so SotD is in a far stronger position than many of its rivals. Trust me on that, I see a lot of other people's selections every day!
There is no shortcut to success and I work as hard on making a profit as anybody else and shall continue to do so, because even with a nice 9pts in the bag for the month at an ROI of 45%, I'll want to add to that over the next three days, before starting all over again in February.
