The Actuary Horse Racing Tips 75.61% sure to make the frame

After a bright start to January 2013 for The Actuary Horse Racing Tips we see a repeat of January 2012 playing out as we start to back track.

Although only halfway through the month I feel already that I will remember January for those more painful moments. Those moments that would have made a vast difference to where we are currently.

I spent a little time last night reviewing and looking at some statistics on the month to date.

From a total of 80 selections 75.61% have made the frame, 35.37% have won which would lead you to believe we have made a nice big fat profit. As I have previously pointed out in previous posts, a strike is not a good measure of performance, only profit and loss counts.

Here is the catalyst behind our current position. 29.27% of our selections have finished second, so we have 66.25% of our selections filling the first two places.

Second by a length or more is easy to stomach but when the heart is racing in a close run thing and you are continually come out on the wrong side it starts to grind your gears a little. I have even gone to the extreme of backing selections on the Betfair place markets out of sheer frustration.

If I was to create a wall of pain here are the selections that would appear on it:

Aubrettia
Aubrettia (orange) - Luke Morris - Wolverhampton

Le_tor
Le Toreador (middle of the three) - Jamie Spencer - Wolverhampton

Neige_dt
Neige D'Antan (Hoops and white cap) - Luke Morris - Wolverhampton

Violent_v
Violent Velocity (black) - Jamie Spencer - Wolverhampton

The common denominator maybe Luke Morris and Jamie Spencer but ALL at Wolverhampton where I am sure the current slowness of the course, perhaps intentionally to pander to those Southwell horses unable to race has played its part but it does act as a stark reminder to the margins we have to play with.
