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.

A winner and two placers from five runners to kick off October wasn't quite enough for a profitable week, but a small loss of 0.67pts isn't the end of the world and we are continuing to get horses there or thereabouts.

A slow start to the month, but we've plenty of opportunities to put it right over the coming weeks.

SotD Update, 24th to 29th September 2018

Another very good week where we also passed a couple of milestones. Tuesday was our 2100th selection since we started this service, and Wednesday gave us a belated 50th winner of the year.

Overall we had 3 winners and 3 placers for an excellent 9.1pts ensuring September actually finished as a better month than our overall average.

We now come towards the end of the Flat season and whilst the transition to the Jumps season is often difficult, we do at least approach in more confident mood than might have been expected a fortnight ago.

SotD Update, 17th to 22nd September 2018

I ended last week's roundup by saying..."With an upturn in form that must surely be imminent (this Flat season has killed me), I'm still confident that we'll end the year ahead of the bookies, so if you're up for the challenge, so am I." Those who have stuck by the service out of loyalty and efficient bankroll management were rewarded for their patience with our best week in a long time.

We kicked off the week with a hat-trick of winners, all at nice prices and we were so close to adding another 5.5pts on Thursday before getting "done" late by our runner's own stablemate. The week sort of petered out after that, but three winners from six and 7.75pts profit were very welcome indeed.

That said, we're nowhere near out of the woods yet, but one step at a time, eh? We're back in profit (just!) for the year, the overall bottom line is nudging back towards the psychologically massive 500pt barrier. We're still down on the month, but statistically, we're just one winner shy of where we'd like to be, which isn't a position I thought we'd get back to so quickly.

So, we buckle ourselves in and go again...

SotD Update, 10th to 15th September 2018

I really wasn't looking forward to writing this week's update, as I just can't seem to get myself back amongst the winners. That said, we do pride our selves on our honesty, integrity and transparency here at Geegeez and with that in mind, I have no issue with showing our results warts and all.

Performance-wise, it wasn't horrific with four placers from six and at the risk of repeating myself (it is all a bit like Groundhog Day), this shows we're on the right kind of horses. Sadly, they're not winning, so neither are we and we have now given back all the profits we made earlier in the year and are effectively now basing 2018 on what we can do in the next three and a half months.

With an upturn in form that must surely be imminent (this Flat season has killed me), I'm still confident that we'll end the year ahead of the bookies, so if you're up for the challenge, so am I.

SotD Update, 3rd to 8th September 2018

It was a case of good news and bad news this week. Unfortunately, it was yet another losing week, but on the brighter side, Friday's pick (our 200th of the year) finally got the monkey off my back with my first winner in a good while.

That said, it was a much better week performance wise and a run of results reading 7F2512 doesn't tell the whole story. Scotsbrook Night looked a surefire winner before making a right hash of the last hurdle on Tuesday, whilst a day later Mr Mafia jumped terribly conceding lots of ground at every fence, yet was still only beaten by a length.

On another week, they both win, we emerge with 3 winners from 6 on the week and a nice profit. However, below is the reality of how things panned out...

SotD Update, 20th August to 1st September 2018

I'm sure I'm not the only one glad to see the back of August. To be perfectly honest, I've never known anything like it and I was happy to be able to take the last week off and get away from racing completely.

It was by far the worst month I've ever had, but it was also very frustrating. I selected so many horses that ran well but just failed as typified by my final five pre-holiday selections which finished 23324. Of course, near misses don't pay the bills, but they did at least stop me going insane.

Yes, with every loser, I began to doubt the selection process more, just like many of you have done, but in my week off, I went back through the recent poor run and re-assessed the picks and they were all logically sound and most of them ran well enough to have a chance of winning. Our picks continue to be well fancied elsewhere too, so I still think I'm doing something right.

Sadly, it was left to Matt to bail me out, though and he was able to ensure that the month wasn't a complete washout by finding a pair of nice winners : further proof if any were needed that it's a team game here at Geegeez. I'm back in the hotseat now and rest assured, I'm doing my utmost to snap this long losing run I'm on and I actually believe that a couple of winners might well open the floodgates again.
