OK, so last week and June in general didn’t go to plan, I think it’s fair to say. But here at Geegeez, we don’t go into meltdown when plans go awry, we don’t make excuses for poor results and we don’t whoop, holler or booooooom when we’re plundering the bookies.
So, based on the above, it’ll be business as usual going forward, there’ll be no change in approach/method, as this has served us well for years now. June was disappointing (as was May, in honesty), but 2018 still looks strong, as do our overall excellent figures.
Nobody forces anyone to follow any tipster’s selections, you’re all grown adults! I’m open to any form of constructive criticism, but I’m not going to put up with any more sly, cryptic negative/abusive messages left either on the SotD posts or via email (from the less brave of you!).
The bottom line is this, we lost just over 8pts in June, meaning we were effectively just 2 winners shy of making a profit and as 5 of last week’s 6 picks made the frame, I wasn’t exactly a million miles off.
The selection process is sound and I with a small band of followers know this. A few years ago, I was frustrated at my SotD shortlist producing winners that went unpublished, so Matt & I set up a separate subscription service using the SotD shortlisted horses not actually chosen to be SotD : that service made over 20pts in June using the same process.
Based on the above, I could easily claim to have been unlucky with my SotD selections, but the truth is that it all evens out on the end and both services will make money in the long run.
