The first week of May proved to be a difficult one for me and of my six picks, one was a non-runner and only one the other five managed to make the frame.
Thankfully, that runner (Cosmic Ray) was widely available at 3/1 BOG, meaning we escaped with just a 1pt loss on the week and to be honest, I'm pretty happy to take that after a poor run of results over the week. I know many of you got the 7/2 that was available, further reducing your deficit, but I'm declaring at 3/1 in the interests of fairness and transparency.
All that aside, the figures for 2017 are still exceptional and are far in excess of what we've achieved historically, so please don't be too alarmed when the almost-inevitable slowdown comes.
