Stat of the Day Update: 23/09/13 to 29/09/13
September’s rollercoaster nature is in full view once again as SotD went from the sublime to the ridiculous this week.
We hit three winners in four days in the middle of last week, making 8.5pts in the process.
We have since had nine consecutive losing bets for an actual net loss of 1.5pts over the last fortnight!
In fairness, though, a 0/7 return doesn’t tell the whole story.
Both Saturday’s and Sunday’s runners only went down by a mere head at decent prices and it was the head again that prevented us from getting an E/W payout on Monday.
In addition to the narrow defeats, we should add that all bar two of our selections were sent off at considerably shorter odds that we’d advised.
The main things to take from this week, are a reminder of how fine the margins are between success and failure and that getting the best price available is key.
