Well, despite a couple of non-runners, one of whom returned to plague us on Friday, it was yet another good week for team SotD with another couple of winners from four who actually ran, adding another 5.18pts to our bottom line.
To use a football analogy to describe the year so far, we've gone in at half-time with a commanding lead and we've just scored a goal in the opening minute of the second half, having kicked July off with a nice win for Defoe on Saturday (Matt & his fellow Bournemouth fans will hoping to see Defoe score regularly from next month onwards!).
Defoe's win yesterday took us tantalisingly close to the first two of last week's milestones I flagged up, as we're now just 1 winner away from 50 for the year (at a rate of 1-in-3), we're 1.05pts shy of 100pts profit for the year (at an ROI of over 67%!) and now 28.32pts away from 500pts overall profit, although I expect it to be some while before we hit that one!
As Friday's runner marked "half-time" for 2017 and completed a full 12 months without a losing month, these figures are well worth sharing again....
Jan 1st to June 30th 2017 : 48/146 (32.88% SR) for 96.45pts (+66.06% ROI)
July 1st 2016 to June 30th 2017 : 91/263 (34.60%) for 161.18pts (+61.29% ROI)
All of which means that over the past 12 months, those of you paying £30 per month for a Geegeez Gold subscription could have covered your fees by staking just £2.24 on each SotD selection.
There's no resting on our laurels (typified by kicking July off with a winner), though nor are there guarantees of future success, but you can be very well sure that we aim to continue the success we've had with this over the last 68 months, which have seen us (Chris, Matt & Steve) hit 489 winners at a rate of almost 2 in 7 for nearly 472pts at a return of over 27p in the pound.
