The frustratingly tough time I'm enduring here at SotD continued last week, I'm afraid, as we handed another 2.5pts back to the bookies along the way.
One winner from six once again doesn't tell the full story with two runners-up and a fairly close third place amongst our beaten selections and just one of those getting home would make a massive difference to the bottom line.
That said, I'm still confident I'm doing things the right way, but we're just not quite getting there, it's not like we're consistently backing horses that run badly. I'd be far more concerned if that was the case and whilst we get the same return for a runner-up as we do for one trailing in stone cold, I know which loser I'd rather back, if I had to pick one!
