Five losers to start the week wasn't what we wanted/needed and July continues to be the chalk to June's cheese (I prefer cheese). Betting on racing is always a rollercoaster ride and good runs will allow follow bad ones and vice versa.
That said, Saturday's well fancied winner was a welcome relief as it broke a cycle of 10 losers and although I put him up at 5/2, which is pretty much as low as I'm comfortable with for SotD, he did prove that even at the sharper end of the market, you can get some value as those getting on at 5/2 got 167% of Industry SP, which is why we never back at SP!
So, despite being almost halfway through the month, the running loss for July is manageable and nothing that a couple of winners won't fix, so that's the immediate aim.
Next pick will go live shortly after 8.00am Monday.
