March continues to be equally frustrating, tough, challenging, interesting etc and after another week of just one winner, we currently stand with a monthly deficit of 3.5pts. The stats suggest we're one shy of parity and had we managed to find one from somewhere, we'd be in profit, such are the fine margins we work within.
That said, I think we've got excuses from the past week, I was really keen on Hanakotoba on Wednesday but that one didn't run. Potters Midnight blew the last and the race on Friday, whilst I was at Uttoxeter on Saturday to see Captain Cattistock run really well but threw the race away with a bad mistake four out.
However, jumps racing means you have to jump and ifs/buts don't put food on my table, so if my kids want to eat, I'll need to find some more winners!
