MAY 2023: -15% ROI

    May brought us Snake’s birthday and Snake’s lifesaving surgery. But the punting gods didn’t read the script and left us in a hole.

    Throughout May, Snake’s Eye identified a total of 82 tips. The monthly returns produced a return of $69.50 (based on a $1 bet per tip). Overall, that’s a -15.2% return on investment.

    Snake’s Profitable Ponies and Fancied Favourites faired as well as each other, unfortunately. Profitable Ponies lost 15.6% from 72 bets and our Favoured Fancies lost us 13% from 10 bets.

    Using Snake’s Eye’s Safety Betting Strategy, if you had invested $100 at the start of the month, you wouldn’t have much of it left. You could have built it up to $133.20 early in the month, but that was as good as it got. And for the first time in a long time, you wouldn’t have been able to withdraw your initial investment. You would have finished the month with only $7.20. That’s an ROI of -92.8%.

    Shame for Fame brought us some joy with a $12.50 win

    Tip of the Month

    This month we couldn’t didn’t have much to crow about, but Shame For Fame brought a smile to our faces when he delivered a $12.50 win late in the month.

    This win helped put together a good streak to finish the month.

    Monthly Streak

    The month was dominated by our biggest losing streak in history. A 7-day, 40-tip streak teased us with 18 placings but only produced one Fancied Favourite and one Profitable Pony win, bringing us to our knees. It was, however, promptly brought to an end by a $12.50 winner. But the damage had already been done. We finished the month with 4 winners from the next 6 tips, but it wasn’t enough to get us back in the positive.

    It was Monday, Tuesday and Thursday that hurt us this month. All three days of the week failed to produce a winner, leading to an internal review that will hopefully pay dividends next month and beyond.
