2018 hardly started off brilliantly, but in a tough opening week, we did at least land our first winner of the year. Unfortunately, not only was it subject to Rule 4 deduction, it was also accompanied by just one placer, two unplaced runners, one who was pulled up and a non-runner who'd gone lame!
All in all, a loss of 1.3pts on the opening week of the new year, but (a) we've got plenty of time to claw that back and (b) we're up and running for 2018 if nothing else!
