Stat of the Day Update: 07/09/15 to 12/09/15
Well, it has been quite a while since we had a non-profitable week and even longer since since I had a week with no winners, but that's where we're currently at, I'm afraid.
Historically, over the near 4 years of SotD, my strike rate is just over 29%, but the June to August period was running at around 42%, so some kind of reversion was to be expected. Our cause hasn't been helped by three of my last seven selections being declared non-runners.
Some might say that in a poor run, they'd have lost anyway, but my average suggests one may well have been a winner. Either way the cold fact (and I only deal in facts for SotD!) is that I was 0/4 last week, I'm now on a 7-pick losing streak (the worst for a while) and we're currently a couple of points down on the month.
2pts is no real drama to be honest and one winner alone will clear that and just converting one of last week's two runners-up would have changed the perspective. We're still beating SP on a regular basis, so we're certainly not picking no-hopers and there's plenty of time left in the month to turn it into another profitable one, so I'm certainly not writing it off, whilst not hiding/making excuses either!
