August Analysis

Our worst month since June 2010, they'll come along every now and then, but August wasn't pleasant. Not just in the returns, but just the sheer number of horses seemingly running below par. All very annoying, and not what you'd like going into a two month break. Let's have a look at the numbers.

Bets: 57
Wins: 3 (5.26%)
2nds: 6 (9.5%)
3rds: 5 (8.77%)
Placed total: 14 (24.56%)
Average odds taken: 7.3/1
Average SP: 6.15/1
Average win odds: 6.41/1
Profit/Loss: -38.78pts
Return On Investment: -63.57%

It goes without saying we'd rather have had more winners, but our placed total is also certainly down on where we'd like to have been as well. A funny old month, but we continued to beat SP with the great majority of our selections, on average by 1.15pts and it's this stat which will see us right in the long run.

Roll on November!

On our break

We're currently on our two month break, but will be back soon with our August review!

Even though August has been tough to us, it's been a great 2011 all told, and we can't wait to get going again in November.
