A great start to April with 3 winners and a placer from 6 picks and a very healthy 8.85pts to get the ball rolling. The obvious highlights of the week were Wednesday's winner where we absolutely smashed the SP and then Champ was so impressive on Friday, as we landed a rare Big Meeting success, a far cry from my bread butter Class 5/6 handicaps.
Mind you, an 11/4 winner in a £2,500 A/W contest pays the same as we made from Champ, so there's definitely no racing snobbery here at SotD, nor from Geegeez in general.
I'll sign off with a quick reminder that I'm travelling to Florida on Sunday, so Matt will provide Monday's pick (no pressure, mate 😉 ) and then I'm back in the hotseat for the rest of the week, but post times will be later than usual.
And now, a resume of the week just gone!
