May Review – A Damp Squibb of a Month

Do you remember this time last year?  It was rare for the temperature to drop below 20 degrees, and the grass was already looking scorched.  Hot day after hot day, predictable going conditions at the racecourses…a form reader’s dream.

A year later and it feels like summer is really struggling to get going.  We’ve had plenty of rain, it’s been consistently cool, and the lawn is looking very green indeed.  My feeling is that the unpredictable conditions are not helping my horse racing tipsters one bit.  Something anyway, has to be the cause of what has been a real slump in form for a number of them through the latter half of the month.

Having said all that, it’s recent addition Football Service 1 that has performed most poorly, which is a huge case of Sod’s Law kicking in.  It would seem Sod’s Law is more adept at kicking than anyone playing for the teams picked by FS1!

MVS has really struggled recently and is on a pretty sizeable drawdown, and Racing Service 4 hasn’t had an enjoyable time of it either.

On the flip side, new portfolio member Racing Service 2 has been very solid (and I can tell you that June got off to something of a flyer last Saturday too!) and good old Northern Monkey has had a bit of a stormer.  Noticeable that yet again, the officially recorded prices are significantly lower than those that are quite easily achievable.

With FS1, and Golf Insider both failing to produce the goods this month, it’s been a really poor time of it for the Broxchange portfolio.  Things can, as D-Ream once wisely said, only get better.
