There is not too much to say this week apart from the fact that the expected and hoped for turn around didn’t happen this week. I suppose when we had another well backed second on Monday the writing was on the wall for what was to follow. Unfortunately not many of this past week’s 10 selections ran well at all. There was a decent winner for Ralph Beckett but that was all we had to shout about. Three more frustrating seconds meant we suffered a loss on the week of 3.5 points using BOG Bookies.
While -26.5 points is far from disastrous I am aware that this has been uncomfortable for many. When I was accumulating +90 points profit from July to launch date I was hoping we would not have a start like this but I suppose it was inevitable that we would. This is a value system services and unfortunately this will happen from time to time. Despite the start however we are only two 14/1 winners away from going into profit. These winners will come and I hope enough of you stick around to back them.
A few of our trainers are due a winner…Anthony Honeyball is 0/10 for us and should be having winners soon. Rae Guest (0/5), David Lanigan (0/6), Ian Williams (0/4) and Colin Tizzard (0/1) are yet to hit the board for us, but they will. Individually those results are nothing to be concerned with and they will have winners in time. We are still awaiting our first all-weather qualifiers from Ruth Carr and Sir Mark Prescott, hopefully they are not too far away.
I am grateful to those that are riding this mini storm at the moment and have stuck with the One Track Trainers. As a thank you I will be sending you, most likely via the members’ area, a selection of my best ‘Profile Horses’ just for you. I will be introducing ‘Horse Profiling’ in the coming weeks and hopefully this group of horses will provide you with some decent profits when running under their optimum conditions. I will email out when it is ready, which will hopefully be this week, if not it will be before Christmas.
p.s Another frustrating second as Leonard Thomas is denied close home by a neck. That now means 40% of all selections have finished in the top 2, unfortunately though there have been 17 seconds, with only 7 winners. Although bloody frustrating hopefully this gives you some confidence for the future.
