NOTE: If in doubt, trust the stats. Famous last words for me on a howler of a day. Apologies if I put you off the two 12/1 winners there- that clearly isn’t the purpose of the ‘my verdict’ section – and across the blog in truth it is becoming apparent why I like trainer stats/angles- and at the same time am yet to run a tipping service. My subjective judgement has had a rocky time. I had a small ‘just in case’ nibble on Hobbs’ winner when he drifted from 7s, but nowhere near a decent bet. And I left Antony completely.
The aim of ‘My Verdict’ is to try and avoid losers really, not put you off winners – and maybe I need to stick to sound, objective, reasons why I may be leaving a horse (ie may have proven not to like conditions, x from x over distance, going, after a break, in the class etc) Certainly with those two winners you couldn’t say any of those things. Anyway, I won’t drone on. The My Verdict is meant to add a bit of value -after days like Saturday you have to reflect. So again, apols if I put you off either of those- I have avoided plenty of losers in recent weeks but those two went some way to wiping out those missed losers. I can take criticism and if my current approach to that section isn’t making you enjoy your experience please do say. Maybe I should run a poll on it.
