SotD Update, 14th to 19th January 2019

Another profitable week to keep 2019's good start going, Tuesday's winner was our fifth on the bounce, but we couldn't manage an SotD record-equalling sixth on the Wednesday, so all clocks are reset and we go again.

I dais last week that I'd like at least four more winners this month, so these two take me halfway there and with another ten "opportunities" left this month, I'll now be somewhat disappointed not to end up with 9 on the board for January, hopefully we can hit double figures, but that might take some doing! I wouldn't normally set such targets, but if we were to land a 10th winner this month, that would be the landmark of 600 SotD wins from around 2200 picks!

Better get my head down into those numbers!

SotD Update, 7th to 12th January 2019

Well, to half borrow an old footballing cliché, that was a week of two halves, wasn't it?

We started the week holding a handy 7pt advantage for the month and kicked off with a couple of placers and a 5th position, giving back almost half of the profit we held. But that was followed by two drifters come home as winners, before Athollblair Boy confirmed his favouritism on Saturday to give us a second half hat trick.

To continue the analogy, we earned a 3-3 draw since the last update, winners to losers, but as you know with SotD, one winner pays for three or four losers in the long run, so I was "over the moon" to turn an 11pt profit on the week.

Saturday's win was the most significant of the three, although it made the least money, because it means that despite not quite being halfway through January, we now can't lose this month. We've still got 16 selections to make, but with 18pts in the bag, we know we're making money this month. There'll be no change in approach, naturally, just like there isn't during the cold spells. I'll still be looking for at least another four winners for the month, so I'd better get my head down!

SotD Update, 31st December to 5th January

Happy New Year everyone!

I'll be honest with you, I was glad to see the back of 2018 from an SotD point of view. We had a great first third of the year, then lost all the profit from those four months in the next third and then the final third of the year saw us just about stay on the right side of the break-even line.

The end result was 22.64% strike rate yielding a small 10.16pts profit at an ROI of just 3.43%. It's better than the bank will give you and much more fun, but it's not what we're used to!  More on this is my upcoming review of the year.

In a nutshell, compared to overall performance, we were probably 13 winners shy of parity, so missing just one winner per month can make a big difference. We're not into hard luck stories at SotD, you get what you get. If, however, we'd had the 13 extra winners, we'd have been looking at an annual profit of around 70pts, which is where we like to be!

So, the challenge is simple : have a better 2019 and we (Matt and myself) will be doing our level best to do so and we've already landed two winners this week/month to set the ball rolling with 7pts on the board for January so far : now it's time to kick on. Are you with us?

SotD Update, 26th to 29th December 2018

Just four runners in the usually truncated Christmas week and although the bare results don't show it, three of them ran pretty decent races.

Thankfully we managed a winner which guaranteed profit on the week and the cherry on the icing was the 3.5pts drift out to 7/1 on that winner, proving that drifters CAN win! (regular readers will know what I mean)

The bottom line is this...December WILL finish in profit and 2018 will show a surplus of at least 10 points. These numbers aren't what we're used to, but I'm still moderately happy to have turned an albeit small profit in a year that has seen many tipping services struggle with quite a few shutting down as a result.

Our MO is tried and tested and we'll be back in 2019 aiming to return to the usual 50pts plus for the year. A quick look at 2018's number suggests I'm roughly 1 winner per month shy of par, based on our average return of 3.5pts per winner. So, whilst we're close to where we should be, it does highlight the fine margins I have work in!

One more to run this year, so I'll hope to sign off with a New Year's Eve winner for you and that selection will be online on Sunday evening as usual.

So, from myself (Chris), Matt & all behind the scenes at Geegeez, SotD would like to thank you for your continued support and patience and we'd also like to wish you a happy, healthy and wealthy New Year.

SotD Update, 17th to 22nd December 2018

Three placers from six isn't too bad, but it looks worse on paper when all three could only manage to finish third. The week pretty much summed up my 2018 as a whole :  each time I've looked like turning a corner, I run into a another brick wall. 2018 has been the most difficult / frustrating / trying / poor * (*delete as applicable) year since we started this SotD venture 7 years ago.

We've made profit every year and we'll just about make profit again this year, but nowhere near my self-imposed 50pt target this time. I'll just be glad to get the 2018 monkey off my back and start 2019 with a fresh slate. There is, of course, the small matter of five more picks for this year to come first and rest assured, I'll be doing my best to try and grab some late winners to boost the meagre profits!

SotD Update, 10th to 15th December 2018

Two winners and two runners-up represented a decent week for us and finally ensured that 2018 will at least end in profit. It might not have been one to crow about, but we are very proud of not having a losing year since the inception of SotD back in 2011.

The next target, of course, is to bag the two or three winners required to make December a profitable month too, so let's do it.

SotD Update, 3rd to 8th December 2018

It was another frustrating week for myself and SotD followers alike, albeit thankfully a profitable one.

Let me explain why I was frustrated...yes, it was great to pick up two winners from six runners and 3.33pts profit to boot, but a pair of placers and a late faller could really have changed the perspective of this piece. Sumkindofking battled on really well and was unlucky on Wednesday when beaten more by conditions far worse than advertised, whilst Bermeo looked really well placed before coming down late on Thursday.

But, of course, in the long term, these things even out and we'll nick a couple of races via late falls etc, but the short term pain is still annoying! That said, we edge ever closer to ensuring that 2018 ends in profit, despite how difficult the past few months have been. December obviously has fewer betting days than most months due to the (short!) Christmas break, but we've still 17 more opportunities to add to our bottom line.

My initial target is definitely to find the two winners that will guarantee the year is profitable at the very least, hopefully I'll be telling you about both of them next weekend!

SotD Update, 26th November to 1st December 2018

I said last week..."I'm going to need 3 winners to make November profitable. That's going to be a tall order, but I'll certainly be giving it a go."... I certainly can't be accused of not giving it a go or getting close, but ultimately I failed in the quest. Damn you November!

What it meant that 4 winners from 25 was a couple shy of where we needed to be to at least break even and although I'm not one to make excuses/blame others etc, I'm still encouraged by the fact that 15 of the 25 (ie 60%) of the picks were placed in the first three with 8 of them finishing as runners-up.

I'm not saying we were unlucky, I'm not saying we deserved more, but I am insisting we're backing the right kind of horses. The second half of this year has been the toughest I've encountered in over 30yrs of backing horses, this is borne out by others in the game also struggling. But the fact we're constantly there or thereabouts gives me the fuel to go again (and again!).

I didn't want to be going into December with a current yearly profit of just 8.75pts either, but that's where we are. So, my immediate aim is to ensure profit for the year and then to try and add as many points to the bottom line as possible in the hope/belief that 2019 will be better!

SotD Update, 19th to 24th November 2018

Just like the previous week, this last one has proved to be a frustrating one. Like the previous week, it was once again just a one winner from six week that has shown a loss of 1.5pts. The frustration was compounded on Saturday as those fine margins reared their ugly head again as Fume went down by just a neck.

I'm not one to lament losses, but with a touch more luck, I could well have been telling you about a great fortnight. The reality, however, is that with just five more selections left this month, I'm going to need 3 winners to make November profitable. That's going to be a tall order, but I'll certainly be giving it a go.

SotD Update, 12th to 17th November 2018

Another frustrating / disappointing / poor (delete/apply as you see fit) week with just the one winner from six and a loss of just over two points, after even our sole winner was subject to a Rule 4 deduction.

Personally, I was frustrated by the pair of runners-up who I felt were strong picks, delighted by the winner of course and disappointed with the other three. I'd use the word poor to describe the overall P/L, but on another week we walk away with 3 from 6 and most of you are happy : such are the fine margins of the game.

Those margins are highlighted by the fact that we're probably 2 winners shy of where we should and would want to be for the month, so the challenge is clear over the next 2 weeks!

SotD Update, 5th to 10th November 2018

On this poignant day of remembrance, I have to look back on a week that was sadly largely forgettable.

Three placers from six isn't too bad, but to not get a single winner was both frustrating and disappointing, especially as Saturday's nicely-priced runner looked very much like he was going to make the week a profitable one for a while.

All that aside, this is supposed to interesting and fun and whilst I'd love to turn a profit every week, it's not a matter of life and death, unlike it was for so many who have served our nation proudly over the years.

So today, my concern is about them : we shall remember them forever.

SotD Update, 29th October to 3rd November 2018

Two winners at nice prices and two placers from five runners meant a nice finish to October and a good start to November for regular followers of SotD, but there'll be no resting on laurels around these parts.

Whilst we seem to have turned a corner after a disastrous summer, time is still ebbing away for this year as a whole and it's imperative we try to land a profit in November to (a) make it three good months is a row and (b) tip the odds in our favour to make 2018 a successful year overall.

It's also worth remembering not to get too carried away whilst we're enjoying these winners, just as we shrugged off the negativity we faced from some quarters during the three unprofitable months we endured earlier in the year.

I will basically be following the advice Matt has given me on more than one occasion : to just keep on keeping on. 😉

SotD Update, 22nd to 27th October 2018

Another good week rewarded loyal followers of SotD with another 8.15pts profit as three winners from five took our current run of form to five winners from the last ten runners.

Just the five results this week, as Lola's Theme was strangely (IMO) withdrawn on Friday, but the non-runner was actually a cause for some minor celebration here, as it meant that October will finish in profit, come what may between now and the close of play on Wednesday. It might not turn out to be a huge profit, but it means that after a terrible summer, we've hit back to back profitable months and we're now back beyond the 500pt profit barrier.

That said, 2018 is still running below where I'd like/expect us to be, though so more work is needed. By my estimations, we're probably a good 8-9 winners shy of parity. Whether we can add those extra winners over the last months of the year or not, the aim is to secure more profit in November to hopefully guarantee profit for the whole year as soon as we can.

SotD Update, 15th to 20th October 2018

A better week this week with two comfortable winners ensuring a small but welcome profit of 1.25pts. October still isn't going as well as I'd hoped/expected and it looks like we're currently 2 wins shy of where I'd want to be, which makes last week's run of placers even more frustrating.

I'm still confident we're on the right type of horses, but there are no excuses being made here. More hard work lies ahead!

SotD Update, 8th to 13th October 2018

Six picks and no winners in a frustrating / unlucky / poor * (delete/apply as applicable depending on your personal viewpoint) week.

You'll each have your own take on it, but mine is that it was frustrating, but satisfying in a perverse sort of way. Handy Hollow was travelling well before unseating his rider and the other five picks all made the frame, including three runners-up.

If we can start talking with our heads rather than our wallets, you'll know we're backing the right sort of horses if they're all on the premises. The fact that 5 of the 6 went off shorter than we backed them at (the other went off at advised odds) also tell us we're backing horses that plenty others fancy too.

The bottom line is very simple, we won't win every day or every week or even every month, but so far we've won every year and I fully intend to do that again this year. You should only be panicking now if you've not got a proper structured, disciplined bankroll in place.

I'll wrap this week's report up by being quite blunt : if you can't handle some runs of losers then this isn't for you. October hasn't been the best from a P/L point of view, but the fact that I ended September with a 6 from 12 run shows how easily it can change.
