The weather got a grip on racing this week and we lost three days of selections and having failed to land a winner on Monday or Tuesday, it looked like a possible blank week for us.
Fortunately Excellent George defied a marked drift in the market to battle on to the line, sticking his head out at just the right time to kick March off with a winner.
February's figures were excellent, despite a late downturn, but I'm more than happy with a strike rate North of 1 in 3 and profits of more than 50% of stakes. Looking for a good run towards Easter now.
