A funny (if frustrating) old week last week that started really well with two winners followed by two disappoiting efforts, which were then followed by two agonisingly close defeats at good (5/1 & 6/1) prices at Kempton.
The long and the short of it is that it was another good 2/6 week that yielded 3.25pts (+54.17% ROI) profit and ensured that August finished in a healthy position (7/26 for 7.72pts), but on the flip side, we still await our first September winner, ruing the fact that we could easily already be 2 from 3 for +10pts for the month.
Mind you, it's always a case of swings and roundabouts, as I'm sure we'll nick a couple of races we don't deserve to win, as I've found out during the course of almost 1500 SotD selections. Barring a non-runner, that milestone will come with today's selection. But for now, here's the very latest position...
