As you're probably all aware, I've been on my usual family Easter holiday, so this is a three week roundup of SotD results.
You might remember that in the week before my holidays, I went 0 from 6 in week 3 of March, but bounced back with finishes of 21131 for 13.5pts profit before handing over the reins to Steve for the first half of April.
Now, April can be (and usually is!) a torrid time for tipping and if I'm honest, I don't get too upset at the start of the month coinciding with me not being here, but in my absence, Steve's selections ran consistently well and despite finding just two winners from twelve for a small loss of less than 4pts, nobody can knock the picks and he was unlucky more than once.
As in my previous 0/6 week, Steve was pretty close to the mark with 9 of his 12 picks getting placed and with a bit more luck in running, we'd already be sitting pretty for April. March ended on +22.38pts to maintain the blistering start to 2017 and we've a good fortnight to turn April around.
Will I manage it? Who knows! But, rest assured, we'll do our level best as a team (Matt, Steve and myself) to ensure April also ends up in the black.
