Hmmm well, that wasn't pretty, was it?
0 from 6 on the week and yet to find a winner in August isn't what I had in mind, but are there any positives to be gleaned from a mediocre week? Well 3 of the 6 made the frame, suggesting we're backing the right kind of horses and this is backed up by the way the general public have also been backing our runners, as I'm not having it that it is ourselves driving the SPs down.
We backed six horses at an average advised price of 3.6/1 and these runners were returned at an average SP of 2.33/1, so the only thing I'd add here is that when you're taking a price that is approximately 155% of SP, then you will be profitable in the long run, temporary downturns aside, of course.
