SotD Update, 15th to 20th April 2019

Week 3 of the month was unable to maintain the fantastic results of the month so far with just the one winner, but as that winner was priced at 9/2 we only gave half a point back to the layers, so no disasters/dramas here.

Chuck in the fact that we'd three runners-up in the week and we secured a guaranteed monthly profit by the 16th of April and it wasn't actually a bad week at all. The sour note came right at the end with the tragic fatality suffered by my pick Porth Swtan and our thoughts are with everyone involved with the horse.

I'm now home until Friday 6am (stag trip to Krakow!), so it's normal service Tuesday to Friday, Matt will be in the chair for Saturday & Monday, whilst I'll be posting Tuesday's pick myself, but later in the evening than usual.

And now, a resume of the week just gone!

SotD Update, 8th to 13th April 2019

The second week was April was another good one with 2 winners and a placer from 6 picks and another 4pts profit to put us within touching distance (1 more win needed) of guaranteeing a profitable month and it's not quite the halfway point yet.

It could, of course, quite easily go the other way and we are due some form of correction of results, but I'll be doing my level best to get us beyond that line as early as possible. Today would be good!

I'll sign off with a quick reminder that I'm still in Florida until Easter Monday, so post times will continue to be later than usual.

SotD Update, 1st to 6th April 2019

A great start to April with 3 winners and a placer from 6 picks and a very healthy 8.85pts to get the ball rolling. The obvious highlights of the week were Wednesday's winner where we absolutely smashed the SP and then Champ was so impressive on Friday, as we landed a rare Big Meeting success, a far cry from my bread butter Class 5/6 handicaps.

Mind you, an 11/4 winner in a £2,500 A/W contest pays the same as we made from Champ, so there's definitely no racing snobbery here at SotD, nor from Geegeez in general.

I'll sign off with a quick reminder that I'm travelling to Florida on Sunday, so Matt will provide Monday's pick (no pressure, mate 😉 ) and then I'm back in the hotseat for the rest of the week, but post times will be later than usual.

SotD Update, 25th to 30th March 2019

Well, we made profit in March, which looked unlikely at the halfway point of the month, but the greedy/churlish side of me can't help but feel a little frustrated/disappointed.

The truth is that one more winner would have been enough for us to have had an above-par month and with a three-day burst of runners finishing 332, you can't help but wonder... What if?

That said, a 24% strike rate and a 12% ROI is still something to take forward and not only did Tuesday's winner guarantee March's profit, it was also our 20th winner the year, despite only being 2019's 63rd runner!

But now onto April and you're going to see some temporary changes in service, but we'll still be here every day. I leave for Florida on Saturday 6th April, and return home on Easter Monday, before leaving for Krakow on Friday 26th, returning on Monday 29th, so here's the plan for the month...

  • Mon-Sat 1st-6th : Normal Service by me
  • Mon 8th : Matt will be posting the selection
  • Tues 9th - Sat 20th : I'm posting from Florida, so they'll not appear on site until later than usual (probably overnight)
  • Mon 22nd : Matt will be posting the selection
  • Tuesday 23rd - Friday 26th : Normal Service by me
  • Sat 27th - Monday 29th : Matt will be posting the selections
  • Tuesday 30th and beyond : Normal Service by me
Your first 30 days for just £1

SotD Update, 18th to 23rd March 2019

A good week with three winners at 4/1, 7/2 and 7/2 plus a 15/2 placer that with hindsight could/should have been an E/W bet and fair play to those of you who wrote in saying that's how they played it!

The end result is that March's figures are now virtually on par with our historical performance from both a strike rate and an ROI perspective and with six days of the month left to go, we need just one winner to guarantee a profit for March.

I'm obviously aiming for more than that, but getting that first winner of the week has to be the immediate target.

SotD Update, 11th to 16th March 2019

March continues to be equally frustrating, tough, challenging, interesting etc and after another week of just one winner, we currently stand with a monthly deficit of 3.5pts. The stats suggest we're one shy of parity and had we managed to find one from somewhere, we'd be in profit, such are the fine margins we work within.

That said, I think we've got excuses from the past week, I was really keen on Hanakotoba on Wednesday but that one didn't run. Potters Midnight blew the last and the race on Friday, whilst I was at Uttoxeter on Saturday to see Captain Cattistock run really well but threw the race away with a bad mistake four out.

However, jumps racing means you have to jump and ifs/buts don't put food on my table, so if my kids want to eat, I'll need to find some more winners!

SotD Update, 4th to 9th March 2019

After Friday's runner became our 8th placer in a run of 11 losers, I was fearful of back to back whitewashes, but thankfully late on Saturday night, Treacherous was brave enough to stick his head out and score for us at Kempton.

It was a most welcome winner for me personally, after a really poor day of punting elsewhere and no doubt the 4/1 SP was welcome to all SotD readers, as it kept the weekly loss down to a single point after the frustrations we all went through earlier in the week.

The challenge as always is to convert the placers into winners, March hasn't really taken off for us as yet, but we're only 1 winner shy of at least breaking even and with 8 losing placers in the past fortnight, I'm sure we're on the right tracks.

Business as usual this week, despite that jumping contest taking place in Gloucestershire, don't expect too many Festival selections from me, as a 3/1 winner in a Class 5 handicap pays the same as one in the Gold Cup! The real challenge is just finding a winner at the right price, I'm not fussy where it comes from.

SotD Update, 25th February to 2nd March 2019

February fizzled out from a profit perspective and March hasn't really got going for us just yet, but my over-riding feeling is more of frustration than disappointment after drawing a blank on a week with 5 placers from 6 in a string of results reading 253322.

I'm sure we're on the right horses, at least a couple were unlucky and all six went off shorter (some considerably so) than our advised odds, this is always a good sign.

The upshot, however, is that we ended up being 1 winner short of a profit for February, but with a 31.8% strike rate for the year so far and over 28pts in the bag at an ROI north of 64%, I won't be getting the worry beads out just yet! 😉

Instead, we go again and March will hopefully provide some better racing for us to aim at, as recent fair has been quite poor since the EI episode.

SotD Update, 18th February to 23rd February 2019

I suggested last week that we were going to need three, probably four winners from the last ten selections in February to show a profit for the month and after hitting three from six last week, we stand a decent chance of coming out ahead.

Don't get me wrong, we're not there just yet, but I'm hoping that finding one more winner from four will prove within my capabilities, enabling is to roll into March with some momentum.

SotD Update, 11th February to 16th February 2019

Last week was another unusual week courtesy of the EI outbreak and my long weekend jaunt to Portugal, but as they say the show must go on!

And it did and whilst it wasn't our best week in terms of wins/profit, we got a good run for our money from all the picks and the fine margins we deal with were highlighted with a pair of runners-up, either of which would have transformed the complexion of the week, had they managed to get their noses in front.

That said, we can't win every day and we certainly don't win every week, but the aim is to win most months and with a current monthly deficit of 4.5pts, there's still everything to play for with 10 more opportunities to come (as of Monday morning). We're likely to need at least three, if not four winners in the next ten days, but rest assured, we'll be going for it!

Note: we had a 3/1 winner on Tuesday, so it's now -2.5pts with 8 to run...

SotD Update, 4th February to 9th February 2019

A truncated week for reasons you're surely all familiar with, a subject that many people have had their say on, so I'm fairly positive you don't need my take on it!

That aside and no clear date for a return to action, we had just three runners this week, but with Macs Blessing duly obliging on Tuesday, it was a good week for us profit-wise, adding 1.5pts to our bottom line.

Hopefully racing will resume sooner rather than later, so we'll keep our fingers crossed on that one.

SotD Update, 28th January to 2nd February 2019

With just one winner and two placers from five runners, last week failed to live up to the high standards we'd already set in the first four weeks of the year but this is/was to be expected as I've often suggested in the past.

This meant we gave a small amount (1.25pts) of our profit back, but it's hardly worth worrying about right now. That aside, it was a landmark week for us with Monday's winner not only making January one of those rare 10-winner months, but it was also our 6o0th winner for this feature, whilst Tuesday's runner was our 2200th!

The snow seems to be clearing and milder weather is coming, so I'm hopeful of some better NH racing to look at, with a view to making February a good month too!

Stat of the Day: The 2018 Review

A little over four weeks ago was the end of SotD's seventh full calendar year since its inception as a non-tipping piece back in November 2011. I should possibly clarify for those who haven't been with us all that time!

SotD was designed to give some statistical pointers as to how you could frame a bet without relying purely on the formbook or the racecards, which as we all know were (and largely still are ) inadequate back then. So, whilst we don't expect all of them to win, we do expect a fair run and often the stats we quote will pinpoint winners elsewhere too, so it's really more than a tip.

We know that we acquire lots of new subscribers every year thanks to previous years' successes from this service and also due to more savvy punters looking for better data, information and racecards than they'll find anywhere else on the 'net, so a brief overview of SotD is as follows...

Whilst form and other variable parameters come in to play when normally making a bet, SotD's first port of call is find runners who fit a stat (or usually a number of stats) suggesting they will go well.

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!

We 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 we have to stray outside those parameters a little. A large proportion of our selections run at much shorter odds than we advise 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 2018, but it was a real tough slog and easily our worst year so far, which was made even more acute following on from 2017's stellar performance!

Normally at this point, I'm typing this out with a fairly satisfied smile on my face, but the bulk of 2018 from Easter onwards gave me little to smile about to be honest and the only real cause for celebration is that we managed to secure another yearly profit, our 7th on the bounce. We're rightfully proud of our 7 year record for what is essentially a free add-on to the Gold toolbox package, but we're aware that 2019 needs to be better.

A full month-by-month analysis of SotD's results can, of course, always be found at
http://www.geegeez.co.uk/stat-of-the-day-month-by-month/ , but the overall picture for 2018 was as follows:

Number of bets/selections/pts wagered: 292 (two fewer than 2017!)
Winning Bets: 67 (well down from 83 in 2017)
Strike Rate: 22.95% (2017 = 28.23%)
Average payout from winning bet : 3.57/1 (2017 = 3.89/1)

Yearly Profit: 14.16pts (2017 = 112.05pts)
Profit on Stakes Invested: 4.85% (2017 was 38.11%)

Our overall bottom line is still very impressive and one that both Matt and I (it's a team game) are rightfully very proud of, but we're well aware that 2019 needs to be better for both of us and more importantly for you, our loyal subscribers.

That said, the first four weeks of this year have gone well and we're already guaranteed to be in front for the at the end of next month, so we're now hoping to kick on and make 2019 something more like 2017 than 2018!. The challenge now, of course, is to extend January's form for as long as we can throughout the year.

Thanks for sticking with Geegeez and SotD,
Chris, Matt and the whole Geegeez team.

SotD Update, 21st to 26th January 2019

A couple of non-runners meant just the four picks graced the track this week and with 2 runners-up bookended by two winners at 7/1 and 4/1, we added yet another 9pts to January's bottom line.

This puts us on 9 winners for the month and 599 winners since we started. I'd really love to bag at least one more before the month is out, but three non-runners from the last eight picks might just end up leaving us short.

Nevertheless, January has been excellent and should (heaven forbid!) I not find another winner between now and the end of February, we'll still be entering March with 3pts profit for the year, such has been the excellence of January's results.

Obviously, I can't maintain a 45% strike rate, nor can I continuously deliver an ROI of 155%, so it's now time for another of my regular warnings that after a good run, expect a downturn and vice versa. The stats suggest we're due a correction of results and as the service is based on stats, we'd be foolish not to heed the warning.

Your first 30 days for just £1

So, basically what I'm saying is enjoy this run whilst it lasts, don't increase stakes and do be prepared to give a little of money back to the layers. That said, I'm still after that 10th/600th winner in the next 4 days! 😉

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!
