Saturday’s 9/1 winner was a welcome one for more than one reason. I felt we’d been a little unlucky throughout a difficult and frustrating month, plus after finally being persuaded by Matt to reveal my MO behind my selection process on Friday, it was good to land a winner almost instantly.
That said (and I admit it’s easy to say after the fact) I really fancied Young Fire’s chances on the Haydock bog on Friday too and with ending the week with 5/1 & 9/1 picks, I’d just like to say that I wasn’t chasing a big win to end the month : they were genuinely my most fancied runners priced at odds bigger than 5/2 overnight.
The upshot is that September will end in profit. If Monday’s last pick of the month doesn’t win, we’ve a lower than average Strike Rate and ROI than the rest of the year so far and also our overall figures. If, however, we win tomorrow, it will end up being a better than usual month.
I suppose that typifies the fine margins we work within and I also suppose I’d better crack on, get my head down, crunch the numbers and find you one last September winner, hadn’t I?
