From a “picking the right horses” perspective, it wasn’t a bad week really. A non-runner plus three placers and a well-positioned faller from our six picks isn’t bad going at all. Sadly, Monday’s 10/3 success was the only winner on the week, meaning another small overall loss.
So, as a result, December continues to be tough for horses, riders and punters alike and the upshot is that I’m going to need at least two, if not three winners from the last five picks of the year to make December profitable. It won’t be easy, but it’s not impossible!
The coming week is a short one, due to the Christmas break, leaving me with just three picks, so come back next Sunday to see if I’ve made any inroads into the winners I need!
