A strange week with a sort of symmetry (2 winners, 2 runners-up and 2 that finished sixth) meant we made a small profit from our six selections that also helped us to secure a near-6pt return from the month.
There’s no disputing that I found August tough, but the fact that we just scraped home after two winners on the three days is a very good pointer to why we need to stick at it. Those who saw the month out will have got their belated rewards and I’m often at pains to express that this is a long game, not a short-term fix.
That said, the final SR & ROI numbers for August were very to the running totals for 2019 to date and also the overall figure since we started the project 2367 bets ago! Saturday’s winner was also a milestone for us, being the 50th winner of the year (from less than 200 picks) and the 640th to date.
And now, September looms large…
