Stat of the Day Update: 25/05/15 to 30/05/15
May proved to be a difficult and frustrating month that fizzled out in the last fortnight. We did enough to secure a small profit over the month, but we were probably a couple of winners shy of where I’d have liked to ended up. That said, a level stake of £12.50 per selection would have made enough profit to cover your Geegeez Gold subs!
The last week also served as a reminder of the fine margins we work within. I felt that both Monday’s and Tuesday’s narrow defeats could and should have been wins and we really could have been looking at a monthly profit of 13.92pts (+58% ROI), instead of the 1.92pts returned, but that’s racing!
We’re well aware here at Geegeez about the cyclical nature of racing and I’m sure it won’t be long before we’re nicking an undeserved winner or two to restore the balance. And whilst 1.92pts profit is a modest return, 8% is more than your bank will give you and it meant that May was the fifth consecutive month of profit this year, taking 2015’s figures to…
35 winners from 121 selections = 28.93% SR for 35.48pts at an ROI of 29.32%.
