Stat of the Day Update: 22/04/13 to 28/04/13
Last week's selections performed pretty well in the main, despite the bottom line showing a small 10% loss of stakes. We had a nice 13/2 winner on Tuesday and three horses in the frame and when coupled with a faller that looked well set on Sunday, the feeling is that we're getting closer to hitting a run of form.
However, we are going to adopt a slight change in strategy. Tuesday's winner at 13/2 yielded a 3.9pt profit on the day, as we'd gone E/W and the general consensus here is that we should really be focusing on the win only bets from now on, in a bid to maximise the profits available to us on horses we fancy. Chill Factor went off at 9/2 and if truth be told, I wouldn't have advised an E/W bet at that price, so I effectively gave away 0.7pts of profit, a figure equivalent to the week's losses!
We appreciate that we'll hit the bar more often with this approach, but the long-term profitability should benefit from the new approach. We will, still of course, be offering you a pair of E/W shots in the Daily Dabble.
