May continues to prove problematic for me and the second week of the month was a very trying one indeed.
Six picks with one non-runner left five bets to aim at. All five went off shorter than our advised odds, so we won on value.
Four of the five made the frame, so we won on quality/consistency. None of the four placers actually won a race this week, meaning that despite ticking the boxes for value, quality and consistency, we lost 5pts in monetary terms.
This means that it's almost half-time for the month, we're 6pts adrift and we need winners! We've 15 more shots at the bullseye to come in May and we're probably going to need 5 winners to stand a chance of breaking even. I'm up for it, are you?
