SotD Update, 13th to 18th November 2017

OK, so a second 0 from 6 wipeout on the bounce was not the way we wanted to kick off SotD's 7th year, but that's what we got, I'm afraid. I don't believe in being overdramatic about weekly losses and I rarely crow about it when we've had a great one, as betting on racing is always a rollercoaster ride.

I would like to focus on the positives, of course, so here goes...

Despite no winners from 12 in the last fortnight since I got back from holiday (maybe I need another break, Matt?), 7 of the picks (58.3%) have made the frame with 5 of them (41.7%) finishing as runners-up. In fact, had yesterday's runner not been the latest to get chinned virtually on the line, the week would have broke even.

I think what I'm trying to say is that the picks aren't any better or worse than previously, we're just not getting the breaks/results we may have enjoyed previously.

That said, 2017 still performs at a higher strike rate and higher ROI than our overall 6 year average, so this is quite likely to be that correction in results/figures I spent much of the first 8 months of the warning you about!

    To be fair it’s an awful punting time of the year for nearly all services. For the last 4 years I’ve kept telling myself to shut shop in November but never gone through with it, lol. Tacky ground, horses coming back from layoffs, and corrupt AW meetings (oops did I say that) with 5 spectators make for a miserable punting time of the year. SOTD is simply in tune with this and as Chris points out, it’s not all about this one month.

      It’s tough going, for sure, but the winners are out there somewhere!
      I don’t often go in for public post-race analysis, but consider this today as a guide to how things are going for me right now.

      SotD race, I highlight the pace/likely winner to come from stalls 6, 7 and 8. We go with the O’Meara/Tudhope combo in stall 8. We get beaten, stall 6 wins and then half an hour later the trainer/jockey combo fires in a 10/1 winner!

      So, we lose another point, but the actual piece was still worth writing.
