It's been very quiet week with no bets in claiming races .With so much rain about this week its been very difficult to find any suitable betting opportunities in the claimers.With most of the races cutting up badly.
Hopefully we will be back in action sometime next week ,with four claimers scheduled for later in the week : (Wednesday 5.20 Hamilton 5F claimer ) (Thursday 2.45 Ripon 6F claimer & 2.20 Warwick 8F claimer ) (Friday 4.35 Redcar 10F claimer )
As we approach the last two weeks in June the claiming bets have performed OK in first half of the year.With four winning months out of five and June is also showing small profit of £177.00 / 1.77 with very respectable return on investment in 2012 of 54.55 % .
In the second half of the year there will hopefully be few more betting opportunities .This year there has only been 24 bets which is an average of one bet per week .That's far less than I was expecting at the start of the year,though that's not big concern as I'm prepared to wait as long as it takes for good betting opportunities .
From Small number of bets the strike rate has been good this year with over 37% strike rate ,compared to last years 21% .Hopefully that will continue in the second half of the year.
