SotD Update, 20th to 25th November 2017

A quick fire midweek double was very welcome here for a number of reasons this week. It got me off the cold list removing the monkey from my back, it finally converted the high percentage of placers into a couple of winners and probably most importantly it meant we had our first profitable week for a while.

Of, course the 3.25pts we made over the week only dents the prior November losses and it's still highly likely we'll make a loss on the month as a whole, but (i) it gave us a 54.1% return on stakes for the week and (ii) maintained my slim hopes of getting out of the month unscathed.

It's a tall order, but I think I'm going to need 3 winners next week. Is it likely to happen? NO. Am I going for it? HELL YEAH as our "friends" across the pond might say.

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!

SotD Update, 6th to 11th November 2017

Last week was certainly not the way I wanted to return from my holiday! We've been operating this particular service for six years now and it has produced decent profits at a steady rate with the inevitable peaks and troughs associated with gambling. The method of selection hasn't changed, neither has my approach, we're just on a downswing.

As for recent losses, I feel and share your pain, because unlike most commercial tipsters out there, I back every single one of my own selections with real money, so when you win I win and you lose I lose, but I'm still extremely confident the current cold spell will be broken soon and we'll start moving the numbers in the right direction again.

SotD Update, 23rd October to 4th November

A fortnightly roundup, as I was out of the country last Sunday and have in fact only just (3.30pm) been home half an hour!

My final seven selections of the month before my break yielded no winners at all, leaving my trusted colleague and friend Steve (of RotD fame) to (a) step into the breech proving that SotD is a team effort and (b) rescue October from failing to make profit!

Thankfully, Mr Oliver was able to oblige on both counts, proving a 4/1 Hallowe'en winner to ensure we just about got out in front for October and he followed that up with another winner yesterday to ensure that I resume hostilities with the bookmakers already slightly ahead for November.

Stat of the Day Update: 19/10/15 to 24/10/15

October continues to be tough / attritional / frustrating (or add your own weathered cliché here), but winners on Tuesday and Thursday ensured a profit on the week and puts us in a position where just one more winner is needed over the next six picks to guarantee profitability for the month.

From my experience of reviewing other services, I know just how this particular is and despite the ups and downs of late, we're very handily placed to record a successful October for the third year in a row.

No winners to report from last week, but a string of results reading 424244 says we're not a million miles away though and we are reassured by the fact we're getting on fancied horses at decent prices ( we averaged 147% of SP last week), which is the key to long-term profitability.

May proved to be a difficult and frustrating month that fizzled out in the last fortnight. We did enough to secure a small profit over the month, but we were probably a couple of winners shy of where I'd have liked to ended up. That said, a level stake of £12.50 per selection would have made enough profit to cover your Geegeez Gold subs!

The last week also served as a reminder of the fine margins we work within. I felt that both Monday's and Tuesday's narrow defeats could and should have been wins and we really could have been looking at a monthly profit of 13.92pts (+58% ROI), instead of the 1.92pts returned, but that's racing!

We're well aware here at Geegeez about the cyclical nature of racing and I'm sure it won't be long before we're nicking an undeserved winner or two to restore the balance. And whilst 1.92pts profit is a modest return, 8% is more than your bank will give you and it meant that May was the fifth consecutive month of profit this year, taking 2015's figures to...

35 winners from 121 selections = 28.93% SR for 35.48pts at an ROI of 29.32%.

I found the last week very frustrating / difficult if truth be told, finding just one winner from my selections, despite only one runner not finishing in the frame.

Thankfully the winner was returned at 3/1, which helped with some damage limitation and with a bit more luck in running (especially on Saturday), I'd have somehow scraped a profit on the week, which would have pretty much guaranteed an overall surplus at the end of august, a month I've historically found difficult (SotD actually lost money last August!).

The silver lining to the recent hovering cloud is that we are continually beating SP by a long way and as you're probably sick of hearing me say, that WILL guarantee long term profits!

Another good week for SotD last week with two winners and two others making the frame. The last couple of selections didn't fare as well as I'd hoped, but we still recorded a nice 4.13pts (+68.8% ROI) profit over the six days, pushing us closer to the point in the month where profitability is guaranteed. Another couple of winners should now be enough.

Despite losing on Saturday, Los Nadis became the 900th SotD runner and the recent run of good form has seen us hit an all-time high for both strike rate, profits and ROI, all of which can be seen further down the page. Both myself and Matt are very proud of our achievements to date on this one and we are constantly seeking ways to improve what is already a very successful service.

No update last week, as I was still sunning myself in the African sunshine (that now seems light years away in this current weather!), so here's a full overview of the past fortnight.

The last few days of July proved difficult for us, but August has started well and with both Matt and myself grabbing a winner in the last few days, last week was a very good one (+4.67pts from 5 runners), so the scoreboard is moving along nicely.

Not that it didn't in July, of course, as between us we found a very healthy 7 winners from just 26 selections for decent profits of over 14.5pts for the month.

It was yet another profitable month (10 profitable months from the last 11!) for SotD and we're confident August will go the same way...
