Just when it looked like we'd put ourselves in with a shout of another profitable month, March somewhat fizzled out for us here at SotD, with just one successful E/W bet this week. March has ultimately proved to be a disappointment, but we're not going to sit and mope about it. April sees the return of flat turf racing, an area in which we've done very well in the past and we're expecting more of the same this year.

Things took a turn for the better this week, as Matt was in scintillating form early doors: securing two wins and a place in four days.

This helped us to a weekly profit equivalent to almost 90% of stakes and furthermore served to reduce our monthly losses by some 48% in one hit. We're still the thick end of six points down for the month, but we're doing all we can to ensure yet another profitable month for SotD, but the weather isn't helping at all!

You know you've had a bad week when the highlights are a 3rd place at 7/1, a non-runner and a non-paying 2nd place at 3/1!

SotD is indeed enduring its worst run since we started it some 16 months ago. However, I must stress that we are merely going through one of those poor runs that ALL systems/services go through at some point. We haven't tinkered with the selection process or the methodology, nor do we intend to. We still remain firmly confident that the good times are just around the corner, we just don't know how much of a sweeping bend we're driving round just yet!

It was unfortunately, another week that failed to live up to its promise, after starting reasonably well with a place return on Monday. The next few days were disappointing, before Matt's Saturday selection just missed out on a place at decent odds, before following that up on Sunday with one that just didn't quite get home in front.

March isn't going to plan, but both myself and Matt are confident of the long-term success of this project and we can't be accused of not trying, anyway!

Well, unfortunately February went out with more of a whimper than a bang and this last week has proved to be a frustrating one. An 8/1 runner-up who really should have been an E/W bet but wasn't, taking betfair SP about a placer instead of the increased odds on offer earlier, a 25/1 E/W shot finishing 1 place outside the money had all already got me scratching my head before the final coup de grace of Sunday's selection.

I highlighted a really good angle, but there were two qualifiers. One was a winner at 13/2, one finished last at 8/1. No prizes for guessing where my shilling had gone! So, it was a poor result for February, but we've dusted ourselves down and we're looking forward to a better March.

My own personal poor form on SotD was unfortunately in evidence again this last week, but it's not quite as bad as the 50 defeats in a row that one bright spark on here suggested! And whilst we don't make excuses here at SotD (or at Geegeez in general), I do feel a little hard done by this week.

Home Run looked every inch the winner before veering left after clearing the last obstacle on Tuesday, whilst Sunday's runner Earcomesthedream had every chance had he not gone slightly too early and ended up going from 1st to 4th on the final stretch. The "home run" literally been our downfall this week, costing us anything up to 10pts on the week.

So, whilst not an impossible task: it's now going to be very hard to make February a profitable month. We've got four days left to overturn a near 14pt deficit, but rest assured, we'll certainly not fail for a lack of effort.

There's no excuses from me, I'm just having a torrid time of it at present. I can't seem to buy a winner and even when we get one that really should win, some external force takes a hand. Quaddick Lake was denied what looked like a certain victory by being badly hampered, whilst Sunday's selection Flying Pickets was held up for far too long and from too far back to catch the winner.

It might sound a little like a loser's hard-luck storytime, but that's how close we were to making 3.15pts on the week rather than losing 5.85pts. Thankfully, we're still well ahead of the game and looking for better this week.

Although we made a very small (0.9pts) loss over the last week, there were plenty of positives to be gained from the week's selections. Of the seven advised bets, only one horse ran at an SP longer than our chosen odds, thus continuing to provide value in the market and some scope for the traders amongst you.

We've also been very close on several occasions this week with three runner-up positions and an E/W 4th place all just one place away from paying out in the last four days and we are also pleased to show a profit for the month of January: just over six points with a profit of approaching 23% on stakes.

The last week continued to frustrate, as January seems to have done for large parts.

We didn't manage to find a single winner over the seven days, but we were rewarded with two runners-up at decent enough prices. Unfortunately these weren't enough to prevent a loss over the week of just over 4pts.

It could have all been so different, though, had Tyrur Ted not been mugged on the line, but these things happen in racing.

January is proving to be a strange, yet consistent month.
The SotD profits are growing slowly and the selections seem to either win or finish nowhere near the head of affairs. I started the week still out of form and duly ended my stint in that vein (I couldn't even pick a birthday winner last Wednesday!). Matt had been in excellent nick in his last SotD stint and returned from his "warm weather training break" in the same form with two good 6/1 winners.

So, we're now at that point of the month where we're almost guaranteed a profit (barring 11 consectuive losses, of course!) and we'll be looking to build on the decent record so far this year.

Stat of the Day Update: 07/01/13 to 13/01/13

The last seven days have proved to be somewhat frustrating. It kicked off with a non-runner and we then followed up with five horses that all failed to run to anywhere like we expected them to or anywhere near what they were capable of. In fact. we never even got close to a place, but as we maintain, SotD is a long-term project and it was left to the old-timer Kames Park to rescue our week with an excellent win on Sunday.

This win ensured an admittedly small profit for the week, but it has put us in a better shape than we feared at one point and gives us renewed vigour for the coming week.

Welcome to our first Monday update of the New Year. Since the start of SotD back in mid-November 2011 we've always maintained that this is a team game, but I must hold my hands up here and recognise that January has started well mainly down to Matt's picks, as I've been struggling to pick my own nose recently! It's quite strange, as I've been doing quite well in other betting, but my own SotD picks haven't quite worked out, the narrow defeat on New Year's Day aside!

Nevertheless, it is, as mentioned, a joint effort and I shall be doing my level best to supplement Matt's great work in the coming weeks and months.

December ultimately proved to be somewhat of a disappointment as we failed to recoup the losses from earlier in the month, leaving us with an overall deficit of 6.5pts over the entire month. We don't like losing money, nor do we like making excuses. We just hold our hands up and admit we had a bad month.

However, as this is Stat of the Day, a statistical service built around past performance, it would be remiss of me not to mention the results from December 2011, where we also struggled, finishing with just 3 winning bets from 26 (4/26 this year) and a monthly loss of just over 12pts (-6.5pts this year). That isn't, of course, to suggest we're happy with December 2012's performance, but we're not entirely surprised.

January 2012 was, however, a good month (11/30 for +32.8pts), so we're hoping history continues to repeat itself and long-standing readers/followers of SotD will know that this is a long-term project that will inevitably have the associated peaks and troughs.

It was a better week for SotD this week. Mind you it couldn't have been worse than the whitewashing we endured in the previous seven days. Matt secured our first winning bet of the week, when Big Jer was a 3rd place finisher at odds of 20/1 and he quickly followed that up 2 bets later with our first outright winner of the month: an 11/2 chance backed into 4/1 in the form of No No Bingo on Sunday. I'm also aware that some of you did marginally better and grabbed some of the 6/1 briefly on offer from Paddy Power.

The position for December is still far from ideal, but has improved dramatically this week and we're hoping/expecting further improvement.
