I suggested last week that we were staring down the barrel of a first loss-making month since June 2016, unless I could turn things around and find three winners in six days.
Unfortunately I was only able to find two for you and this meant that the monthly result of 5 winners from 24 gave us a 20.83% strike rate, which is below our usual levels.
However, with those two winners being hit at 6/1 and 4/1, it meant that I just about wiped my face and emerged with a small (2.42% of stakes) profit. Not the best of months, but I'm actually very pleased with getting through April unscathed.
We now turn our sights to May, kicking off with our 100th pick of the year on May Day.
