Trying Times

Thursday 19 February

Don't let anyone ever tell you this game is easy. Currently enduring the worst run for some time with the loss over the last 8 days now standing at £3611.

I would be concerned if most of the horses were running badly, but they're not - I just can't get enough of them across the winning line. Just 4 winners in the last week, but 11 seconds and 10 thirds show I'm not that far away.

Could do with a good weekend though !

I know exactly what you're going through but I can also see that like all savvy punters, you won't let this affect your betting strategy.

Of course the classic mistake that many punters make is to panic at this point and chase their losses, but as you know this is entirely the wrong thing to do.

Stay confident with your selections and they will come right soon enough.

Thomas - sent.

Hi James, not just yet it seems - the 58 second places I have backed so far this year hasn't helped though !

Peter - will do, thank you.

Cliff - cheers for that, exactly right - will keep the stakes the same and wait for things to turn, as they will. Keep reading !
