Stat of the Day Update: 01/07/13 to 07/07/13
It was a funny old week at SotD which started off with a good winner at 11/2 which was followed by a couple of close-run runner-up finishes, before three disappointingly poor shows later in the week.
Fortunately the week was rounded off as it had started, with a well backed winner. I really liked the chances offered by Able Master on Sunday, but I felt that the 7/1 I was able to get had enough room for a safety first E/W approach.
As it happened, it was so well backed that the SP was 3/1 and despite us going E/W, the profit from our 1pt stake was still 46% above that SP, as we made 4.38pts from the race.
