Stat of the Day Update: 29/04/13 to 05/05/13

Our new win only approach on horses priced around 6/1 or under paid almost instant dividends for us this week. Two further failure ended April pretty much as it had been all month, resulting in a final monthly loss of almost 7.5pts.

However, three wins in four days to end the week have already more than wiped out April's deficit and whilst we don't like losing months, the overall aim is a long-term strategy. The horse that lost in that 4-day spell was vindicated in the selection process by the fact that the alternate qualifier was a 12/1 winner and I just picked the wrong one of the two!

    Can’t really argue with that week’s record and the new strategy seems to have worked so far. Mentally it’s a bit less fun as there’s a lot more frustration at seeing a hot favourite not even make the frame than to see a 10/1 shot just fall short. Also a lot less joy in a 3/1 winner than a 7/1 winner or a 14/1 place! However, if we can get 3 winners per week at the shorter odds I’m sure everyone will be happy.
