OK, so my first week back after holiday didn't quite go to plan!
A 7/2 winner and two runners-up say we weren't a million miles off the pace, but we still lost 1.5pts on the week and with a week of the month to run, an April deficit of 5.42pts means there's a strong possibility of a first loss-making month since June 2016, although it's worth noting that we also made a small loss last April, such is the difficulty of this changeover time.
That said, if I can find you three winners this week, we'll make a profit, so I've got a target to aim at, let's see if I can make it!
