Profit & Loss month-by-month 2020

The importance of understanding the reality of “losing runs” is one of the reasons why such detailed records of every selection are kept on the website. If you glance through each of the years, you will see lots of such losing sequences, yet the column has remained profitable.

This is an important lesson for newcomers to punting to learn – winning punters don’t win all the time. Indeed, in many years the profit has largely stemmed from around two or three golden months – most serious punters will tell you this is by no means unusual.

The detailed records also mean that readers can be assured that each selection has been included in the results, with any Rule 4 deductions made. Too many tipping services either don’t provide any records, or just quote a plus or minus figure with no evidence to back it up.Hugh Taylor, AtTheRaces
