August Review

A good end to the month meant that AH Edge posted some solid figures as the top European leagues got their new season underway.  Despite the fact that this service does provide tips through the summer, I can’t help feeling that this is the start of a new ‘year’ as undoubtedly there will be more bets coming through from now to next May.  Just like any supporter feels at this time of year about their football team, the new season always brings fresh optimism and that is how I’m feeling about AH Edge right now.  Last season wasn’t a vintage one by any means, but I’m a fan of Jon’s (the service operator) work and am hopeful that 2018/19 will be far more successful.  It’s been a decent start, with August more or less treading water until the very end, when a couple of winners – including a nice tip on Nice on the last day which came in at odds of just over 2/1 – really boosted the figures.

Staked 38pts, +4.375pts, ROI 11.51%, ROC 6.56%.

August was essentially a break-even month for Racing Service C but I can’t escape the feeling that it could have been so much better.  As you would expect, the York Ebor meeting was a busy time for this service and it wasn’t far away from being a bumper week with numerous each way tips finishing in the frame at fairly juicy prices but actual winners were hard to come by.  There was one race in particular I remember in which the two tips to be running finished second and third, and that summed up neatly how recent months have been going.  Still, a good number of the tips are running well, so let’s hope the winners follow.

Staked 54pts, -0.188pts, ROI -0.34%, ROC -0.18%.

I am concerned about the form of Jason James.  August finished in the red despite a good 14/1 winner being bagged during the last week.  Turnover appears to be lower than has previously been the case although this might be a short term anomaly, and it might be down to the tipster treading carefully whilst trying to rediscover his touch.  Either way, we do need to see a return to form.  Fingers crossed that happens this month coming.

Staked 71pts, -8pts, ROI -11.26%, ROC -4%.

After a nightmare run, the fog began to lift as the month progressed for MVS (Lite).  August started in the same losing vein as July but things slowly turned around and by the end of the month things had returned more to what I have come to expect from this service.  I remember distinctly that last summer was a golden period for MVS (Lite) with winners being banged in left, right and centre.  Just goes to show how the same betting methodology is so open to variance, both positive and negative.

Staked 64pts, +3pts, ROI 4.68%, ROC 3.33%.

A really strong month for the Fake Mug Bets Club with a couple of juicy doubles being landed to ratchet the profit.  Not much more to be said.  FMBC is what it is – one for the patient as there can be long barren spells but you know it’s only a matter of time before landing a big one.

Staked 152pts, +42.25pts, ROI 27.79%, ROC 10.56%.

A frustrating end to August for Northern Monkey with a series of near misses and second places eroding away at previously amassed profit.  At one point I was 20 points up but by the end of the month that had been reduced to 4.3pts.  I guess seconditis is all part of the betting we do and we have to accept it can strike at any time.  Doesn’t make it any less annoying though!

Staked 55.25pts, +4.3pts, ROI 7.78%, ROC 5.37%.

It was great to see Pilelist Racing return to some sort of form with a nicely profitable month.  I had felt during the latter part of July, when the service took a short break to recoup and gather some thoughts, that confidence was beginning to go, but some nice winners this month has reversed the losing trend.  The value of BOG was highlighted too on the 27th, when Borderline was tipped at a price of 12/1…it won at 22s!

Staked 51.882pts, +8.924pts, ROI 17.2%, ROC 11.84%.

The end of the month proved to be something of a damp squib for Racing Service B but a series of decent-priced winners that preceded the last disappointing week or so meant the month was far from being a dead loss.  Will himself suggested he was a little frustrated at a lack of consistency in his selection, but to be honest if he’s producing nearly 20% bank growth each month, then long may he be frustrated!

Staked 88.75pts, +19.26pts, ROI 21.7%, ROC 19.26%.

In summary then, it’s not been a vintage month but after a really poor spell earlier in the summer, it’s good to get back into the red.  Let’s see if we can progress through September.

Total Figures: ROI 9.88%, ROC 4.51%.
