Is it ever going to stop raining? Seriously, it’s bloomin’ wet, and has been for what seems like forever and a day. Has the weather made it harder for tipsters through October? It can’t make form reading any easier if there are on-going uncertainties over the ground conditions, but that shouldn’t effect the footballers, should it!?
October was not good. I guess I was due a bad month, and October served one up for me. Oh well, it had to happen at some point.
Of the nine services in action, only four ended in profit but the story really is that of those four only Racing Service 3 performed strongly. On the other side of the coin, Football Service 2 had a dreadful time of it, Racing Service 1 not much better, and Golf Insider failed to produce a positive return from any pick.
Now as you know, I was away on holiday for the last third of the month and there’s no way I’m going to waste time going back to see “what I could have won”, as the late, great Jim Bowen might have said (host of gameshow Bullseye, for those of you not old enough to remember ’80s and ’90s television). So I’m conscious that one or two of the services that ‘disgraced’ themselves in October may in fact have banged in winner after winner that I’ve subsequently missed. If they did, please don’t tell me, eh?
It’s getting to that time of year that I’ll be reflecting and looking to see what services I might change for 2020. I’m aware too that I’ve still to round up thoughts on knowing when to drop a service, so we’ll resume that particular thread next week.
