July Update - Part 1

A rather belated update from July which is long overdue. Apologies for the delay - if I don't update on a daily basis it becomes somewhat of a chore to do.

Here's the table;

A cracking month overall with the third £1k + month in a row making the horrendous start to the year feel like a distant memory. If every month could produce £1k a month or more then it would certainly be a great way to earn a 2nd income.

July didn't come without its challenges - bookie restrictions on William Hill were a bit gutting and Stan James closing my account appears to have been inevitable. It's made me shift more to betfair - but liquidity on there seems to be drying up and I've seen plenty evidence that the premium charge is destroying the business. More on that another time.

Additionally you'll see that 4PA had a shocker of a month with a 21 point loss (this even with following a 40/1 basic system bet that wasn't on the main account!!). Luckily diversification does the job and the loss was more than compensated by other tipsters.

You can see Systematic remains the star performer - 73 points made is not far off the 90 headline rate and in the range I'm aiming for. Solid performances from SLH, Equine Main and Equine Turnover. My worry with Equine remains the odds availability and my level of staking is too low to deliver significant profit above the subscription. I can't change this at the moment and need to think about what to do.

So overall an excellent month and long may it continue (although August is proving extremely tricky again).

Will update tomorrow on daily peformance and YTD figures.

PS - thanks for all the comments over the last few days - will respond tomorrow to you all. Many thanks.
