It was a better week this week, but still not ideal. Four placers and one fourth place runner only beaten by a length gave us grounds for encouragement, but it was left to Saturday's runner to ensure we came out of the week with something to show for our efforts.
Sadly a 10p Rule 4 deduction meant we only got 5.4/1 about the winner, but that was (a) enough to stop the losing run and (b) enough to ensure a small profit from the week.
We're currently 4.6pts down for May, but with only half of the month left, I'm confident of making May our ninth profitable month in a row. Let's not forget it's a marathon and not a sprint.
