After a slow start to the year the racing tipsters have largely run into some strong form. Cheltenham proved to be the catalyst, as I had hoped it might. We’ve covered the sterling performance of Northern Monkey at the Festival but it should be noted that Racing Service 1 didn’t let us down, either. Although Bet Alchemist didn’t generate too much during the four days, its form just prior and since has been good with a regular supply of decent priced winners.
As a result, both Bet Alchemist and RS1 have hit new profit highs for the year to date, as has the racing section as a whole. From running along in negative territory for much of the first three months of the year, the ROI now stands at a very decent 16.9%. It just goes to show how quickly things can turn around.
Such a reversal in fortune would be much appreciated by Precision Value whose form feels typified by the number of second places its currently hitting – three, only yesterday! As a rule, the horses PV are tipping are running well enough, but not quite well enough to get in front when the line arrives. No doubt at some point this trend will reverse and we’ll get a prolific run of winners, many of them prevailing by heads and short heads. We’re certainly due.
It all means as we hit the end of Month 3, that overall the portfolio is running at an ROI of 18.28%. I’d take that, any day of the week!
