Another really pleasing set of results this week for SotD, with finishes of 231214, which tells me that even when we get beat, we're getting a good run for our money. As ever we tend to beat SP (and Betfair SP for that matter!) more often than not, justifying me putting the hours in the night before to ensure we maximise our returns.
There's not much for me to add really, other than my usual pessimistic forecast of doom! Only joking, but we really must be ready for a possible downturn, as our run since the start of December stands at 30 winners from 81 at a strike rate of some 37.04% for profits of 78.78pts at an ROI of 97.26%. These returns are far better than our lifetime averages of 28.02% and 26.29% respectively, accrued over 1649 selections (Monday is the 1650 landmark!).
The results over the last 15 weeks suggest we've hit around 8 winners more than expected, so any downturn we do experience can be absorbed easily into the bank you'll have built by now. We WILL have losers and we WILL have a cold spell, patience will be required, as my MO won't change, nor will the effort I put in.
