Safe/fair to say that week 2 of July didn’t pan out anywhere near as well as week 1. Thankfully, our sole winner was advised at 4/1, helping to minimise the weekly loss to just 1 point, ensuring that we enter the second of the half month still holding figures better than both our 2018 & overall averages.
I don’t really like to dwell on particular winners or losers, but I was disappointed by the “better” horses I picked this week ie those at Newmarket. Both had excellent chances on paper (pity the race was on grass) and both were well backed by the general public and lauded in the racing press. So, I’ve no qualms about picking : they simply underperformed.
Maybe, it does hint that I should stick to my low grade handicaps, though!
