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!
