If you’ve been reading the Bet Diary recently you’ll have noted how difficult things have been for Northern Monkey recently. A sharp and deep drawdown has been to the sufferance of all followers, and it’s never nice when it happens. And you know what? I reckon there’s likely to be some who have decided to quit, or at the very least reduce stakes, perhaps convincing themselves that the edge that has been proven over the last few years has all but disappeared.
Now, just as one swallow does not a summer make, one big pay day does not a drawdown wipe…or something… But I’ll tell you something. A really nice winner or two takes the edge off the pain and helps restore any wavering faith. And that is exactly what happened for Northern Monkey on Saturday.
The day coughed up just over 19 points of lovely, sweet Northern profit. Wayne went in big on Tis Marvellous in a competitive sprint at Ascot, backing it with a decent stake on it’s own and doubling it up with a few others. Tis Marvellous was bloomin’ marvellous, winning easily and landing one of the doubles for what was a timely reminder of Wayne’s skills. There’s still a way to go before the losses from this losing run are fully recouped, but it’s a very real start to doing just that.
