SotD Update, 6th to 11th January 2020

Two winners and a placer from five runners and 3.66pts profit are the kind of numbers we like to see at the end of a week for SotD. It doesn't always pan out that way, of course, but January has started steadily enough with three winners on the board already. We're going to need another three if not four to ensure a profitable month, so there'll be no resting on laurels here. 2020 is a clean slate, so we've achieved nothing yet.

Stat of the Day: The 2019 Review

*IMPORTANT: the email I sent this morning opened with "Let me start with the caveat. Free, potentially, yes; but risk-free"

It should have said "Free, potentially, yes; but NOT risk-free" - sincere apologies. Matt

Last Tuesday marked the end of SotD's eighth full calendar year since its inception as a non-tipping piece back in November 2011, so thank you to those of you (including Matt) for putting up with me all that time!

The logic behind this daily feature is to take a slight step from the normal form book/ race card approach to betting, since form is temporary at best and race cards are still largely inadequate, although Matt's efforts here at Geegeez are the exception to the rule.

My brief is to give some statistical pointers as to how you could frame a bet from another angle and whilst we don't expect all of them to win, we do expect a decent run for our money and often the stats we quote will pinpoint winners elsewhere too. So it's really more than a tip, it's a way-in to a bet that you can use over and over again.

We attract lots of new members to the site every year, thanks mainly to the continual improvements made to the racing toolkit and partly due to SotD's success, and this is bringing in more savvy punters looking for better data, information and racecards than they'll find anywhere else on the 'net, so here's briefly how I "do my bit"...

My first port of call is find runners who fit a stat (or usually a number of stats) suggesting they will go well. I have quite a large portfolio of saved micro-systems and angles (our Query Tool is brilliant for this) and they generate a list of possibles each day. I also look at the Shortlist report and the qualifiers generated from the Report Angles facility and I end up with a fairly long list of horses/races to assess.

Your first 30 days for just £1

I then cross off the races that I don't even want to consider and only then do I start to look at a race card. Where I have multiple selections in a race, I'll then make a decision on which would be my preferred runner in the race. At this point, I should now have less than 10 races/horses on my shortlist, I then put them in an order that I think reflects their likelihood of winning and at this point, I look at the prices.

Once I've got the prices, I cross out those that don't offer me enough perceived value and then the one that now stands top of the list is the daily selection. We aim to have the selection online in the early evening before racing (preferably by 6.00pm) where possible but occasionally due to home-life, travel plans and/or holidays, it can be later, but there's a selection every day except Sundays and we don't take Bank Holidays, Easter nor Christmas off!

That said, we are currently trialling a morning of racing delivery of Stat of the Day, with the pick generally online by 8.15am.

I try to find runners priced around the 11/4 to 6/1 mark at BOG prices and look for some value in the odds achieved, but sometimes I have to stray outside those parameters a little. A large proportion of selections are sent off at much shorter odds than advised, and constantly beating SP is a key in making long-term profits. Basically, our profit figures aren't massaged by some freakishly long-priced winners, nor is our strike rate bolstered by a string of odds-on jollies.

What we do have is a consistent approach that aims to highlight one value selection per day and although this "one-a-day" stats-based approach to bet selection suffers all the obligatory peaks and troughs associated with betting on horses, we did manage to make a profit yet again in 2019, but it was a real tough slog towards the end of the year, if I'm brutally honest.

Normally at this point, I'm typing this out with a fairly satisfied smile on my face, but the final quarter of the year gave us little to smile about. Nevertheless, the bigger picture is that we managed to secure yet another yearly profit, our eighth on the bounce. We're quietly proud of our record of profit in every year since SotD's inception, for what is essentially a free add-on to the Gold toolbox package, but we're also aware that recent form has been below long-term levels... although I think I said that form was only temporary anyway!

A full month-by-month analysis of SotD's results can always be found at
http://www.geegeez.co.uk/stat-of-the-day-month-by-month/ , and the overall picture for 2019 was as follows:

Number of bets/selections/pts wagered: 290 (two fewer than 2018)
Winning Bets: 66 (67 in 2018)
Strike Rate: 22.76% (2018 = 22.95%)
Average payout from winning bet : 3.93/1 (2018 = 3.57/1)

Yearly Profit: 35.46pts (2018 = 14.16pts)
Profit on Stakes Invested: 12.23% (2018 was 4.85%)

From inception in November 2011 to end 2019: +531.87 points

The overall bottom line is still, we think, impressive and one that both Matt and I (it's a team game) are happy with; and, although I've been quite vocal in expressing my disappointment about the way 2019 fizzled out, a 12.23% return actually shows us in a good light against many of our peers.

We're already up and running for January, a month that has traditionally been kind to us, so fingers crossed for more of the same and a good year overall.

Many Thanks for being a part of Geegeez and SotD,
Chris, Matt and the whole Geegeez team.

SotD Update, 30th December to 4th January

It was, if I'm honest, another annoying/frustrating week with just the one winner and December going out with a whimper, as did the year as a whole. The bright spot of the week was a horse picked at 4/1 BOG (which I thought was too good to pass up) getting home at 7/1, which at least sets January off in the right direction.

I'm not going to say too much about December or 2019 as a whole, because (a) I'll do 2019 in the yearly review and (b) I told you last week about how I felt about December's performance and nobody needs me moaning twice in a week.

January has started OK, I'm still scratching about for form, but I'm confident that it'll come and that's pretty much all I've got to say today other than slightly belatedly wishing you all a very Happy New Year that will hopefully see us all healthy and wealthy!

SotD Update, 23rd to 28th December 2019

A short and frustrating week, folks. Once again we were far happier with our picks than the actual results we achieved.

I picked Roll Again on Boxing Day and he was travelling really well until coming down, whilst yesterday I went with Tidal Flow who did absolutely nothing wrong, but was simply second best to an impressive winner on the day.

I was otherwise engaged in the North East on Boxing Day, so Matt stepped in with Classic Design on Friday, who made a mess of the start, went right, but still managed to be leading inside the final furlong. He'd possibly done too much to get to the front and was subsequently headed deep into that final furlong. Don't, however, be fooled by his eventual 6th place finish, he really wasn't that far off.

All of which means that it's highly unlikely that we'll post a profit for the month, unless I can end with a pair of 4/1 winners! It's not inconceivable, but we should be realistic about these things. The very worst case scenario on the other hand is two more defeats, a loss of almost 10pts on the month and a final result of plus 35.5pts for the year.

As this is the last roundup of 2019, I'd like to thank you all for your continued support and encouragement in what has been a very frustrating and frankly disappointing year for me. A 35.5pts return might be considered decent from other "tipsters", but it's someway short of my own privately-set personal target (Matt/GGZ don't set targets for me, I "work" free from such pressure : that's the Geegeez way.) and I'll expand a little more on that next weekend.

Your first 30 days for just £1

Hoping for a better next two days, a better 2020 and that you all have a fantastic New Year.

Chris

SotD Update, 16th to 21st December 2019

From a "picking the right horses" perspective, it wasn't a bad week really. A non-runner plus three placers and a well-positioned faller from our six picks isn't bad going at all. Sadly, Monday's 10/3 success was the only winner on the week, meaning another small overall loss.

So, as a result, December continues to be tough for horses, riders and punters alike and the upshot is that I'm going to need at least two, if not three winners from the last five picks of the year to make December profitable. It won't be easy, but it's not impossible!

The coming week is a short one, due to the Christmas break, leaving me with just three picks, so come back next Sunday to see if I've made any inroads into the winners I need!

SotD Update, 9th to 14th December 2019

Not a good week by any stretch of the imagination and no real plausible reason behind it. The only comfort I can draw from the week is that the only two runners to make the the frame were the two I fancied the most, but one runner-up and one third place doesn't represent decent form, nor does it pay the bills!

This means that halfway through the month, I've work to do to end in profit, especially with fewer betting opportunities courtesy of the short Christmas break, but I'm not going down without a fight!

SotD Update, 2nd to 7th December 2019

The quest for one more profitable month to round of another successful year for SotD kicked off with winners on Monday and Friday for a profit, just shy of 2pts, which is a decent start even if I was ruing the narrow defeat for Rock Sound on Thursday.

Had he managed to get up, we'd have been looking at +6.33pts for the week, basically giving a free hit for the coming week, but I suppose it's a case of taking what you can when you can and moving on.

SotD Update, 25th to 30th November 2019

The last week of the month was as frustrating as the one that preceded it, I'm afraid. Just the one winner late in the week to ensure no wipeout, but it did serve to minimise losses, I suppose.

Once again, I was left wondering "what if" with another couple of nicely-priced (11/4 & 6/1 this week) runners-up that would have given us a great boost, but to bounce back from October's debacle with a strike rate North of 30% and almost 15pts profit means November was still a really good month.

I'd still love to claw the remainder of October's deficit back before the end of the year, but it's tough going at this time of year and we've fewer picks to go at, but I'll not go down without a fight! Are you with me?

SotD Update, 18th to 23rd November 2019

One 7/2 winner from six picks wasn't the best in terms of Profit/Loss, but with two runners-up at 13/2 and 5/1 plus another 3/1 placer, it does show we're backing the rights horses and we weren't that far off another bumper week like the previous one.

November will finish in profit (+10.8pts is the worst we can achieve), as will 2019 as a whole, despite going 0 from 27 in October! This is the reward for you loyal subscribers standing by us when we were struggling and my aim now over the five weeks or so is to put as many points on the board as I possibly can for you.

I should also quickly reiterate that the way I'm picking the horses right now is exactly the same way as I was doing before the October slump, but more importantly it's the same way as I was doing it in October.

If I'm hitting winners at approximately 24% and I've made over 260 picks so far this year, then there'll already be 200 losers. They could be spread out or come all at once like last month. So, I urge you to continue to look at the bigger picture, not just the past week or even month.

SotD Update, 11th to 16th November 2019

November continues to be far kinder to us than October was and the fact that there has been no change in approach or method behind the selection process suggests that October was indeed just a freak result for us.

Friday's winner was our 650th in total, which was a pleasing milestone to hit, but there's no resting on any laurels, I'm still in deficit from the start of last month and I'm keep to claw that back as quick as I possibly can.

SotD Update, 4th to 9th November 2019

I said last week that I'd detected some signs of a slow return to form, but that more improvement was needed and that I was confident it will come, but I'd prefer it to happen quickly.

Well, this week did show further signs of recovery, but like a patient coming back from illness, it's not going to happen overnight. That said, it was good to finally snap the losing streak with a pair of midweek winners and with three further runners-up, we really weren't too far from an excellent week, not that a 5pt profit isn't worth having, of course!

SotD Update, 28th October to 2nd November 2019

So another week, another wipeout, meaning this is now the worst run of form I've had since we started the SotD project 8 years ago.

There were some signs of a slow return form with this week with finishes of 335833, but more improvement is needed. I'm confident it will come, but I'd prefer it to happen quickly!

SotD Update, 14th to 26th October 2019

As you may have realised, I was away in Greece last week (one of the perks of running a travel agency, discounts available to GGZ readers!), so this is a fortnightly update on a joint effort between myself and Matt.

Sadly, my own personal run of wretched form continued and it appears that the current SotD malaise got to Matt too, as he was also unable to stem the flow of losses, meaning that we're still to record a single winner for the month.

Matt had said one day last week that he wasn't too concerned about short-term results and that the overall picture is still good and I'm in full agreement with that comment.

Whilst enjoying some downtime on the sunlounger last week, I looked back over Matt's selections and also those I put up in the weeks before I went away and I've got to say that whilst there might be the odd one we wouldn't have picked with the benefit of hindsight, we're both happy with the work we've done this month and all the picks we've put up were backed by some strong stats.

I'm not glossing over this poor run, as it's the worst we've encountered, but we both (Matt & I) firmly believe that those of you who stick by us will be duly rewarded in time. October has really dented 2019's figures, but they're still pretty healthy, as our overall numbers and based on those 2414 previous picks, I'm going to finish today's piece with the following...

Your first 30 days for just £1

...if we've had 645 winners, generating an overall profit of 531.16pts, then those winners have actually realised a return of 2300.16pts when you factor in the 1,769 losing bets. This means the average winner has paid us out at odds of 3.566/1 and there are calculators out there that would suggest we can expect to have losing runs of 26-30 selections. The bottom line, I suppose is that as long as we can keep our long-term strike above 21.9% then we'll still make money!

So, whilst it's fair to say that barring some miracle, October is going to be a rare losing month (the 9 in the last 42!), I'm still (a) going to try my best to put some points on the board this week without sacrificing the trusted methodology and (b) confident of an overdue upturn in form that will enable 2019 to be as successful as history suggested it would be.

SotD Update, 7th to 12th October 2019

A bit of deja vu this week, folks. Another blank week means we've got October off to a start that's as dismal as (a) the weather and (b) the general quality of racing on offer.

That said, neither of those are to be used as excuses and every race I've played in has had a winner, I've just failed to find one of them.

There are areas of encouragement, I suppose. Three placers from my last four winners of the week, Misfits should have won on Saturday and I've actually had worse runs of form than this and always bounced back. Just as I never overplay a string of winners, or shout BOOOOOOM! across social media etc, I don't get too down about a string of defeats.

We hit on average just over 13 winners per 50 bets, so we're actually picking 19-20 losers every month on average, the plan is that the 6-7 winners we hit will more than cover the losses. The fact is that I'm not concerned if all the losses come at once, I'm confident that the winners will follow in time.

Your first 30 days for just £1

SotD is a stat-based service, requiring you to believe that if xyz has happened in the past, it will happen again, hence me suggesting that as the past has shown me to have a string of losses followed by a purple patch on several occasions, that it will happen again...

SotD Update, 23rd September to 5th October 2019

A pretty awful week when all is said and done, there's no way of dressing it up and I'd never try to.

0 from 6 and just two placers at the end of the week wasn't the way I wanted to end September and start the new month, but there's little point bemoaning the results, we'll just crack on as normal and the results will look after themselves as they always do.

We made a reasonable if not spectacular profit in September and we've plenty of time to recoup the early October deficit.
