March was dominated by the Cheltenham Festival. Usually a reliable source of profit, this year’s festival highlight, Presenting Percy (11/1), was not quite enough to turn a profit for the meeting.
Thankfully the rest of the month’s horse racing delivered in fine style, the highlights being wins for The Right Man (28/1), Beer Googles (14/1), Bouclier (7/1) and Becky the Thatcher (6/1) amongst others. We are all set for the big Aintree-Fairyhouse-Punchestown push.
An early win for Dustin Johnson was not quite enough to secure a profit for the month on golf, but April has started with a bang, and the Masters beckons in what should be an interesting month.
Likewise football finished the month a fraction behind despite some repeated success with our Raheem Sterling assist ploy.
A quiet month for other sports would have been memorable but for a frustrating narrow miss in the Bellew-Haye boxing.
In summary, March was a satisfactory month. We are rightly pleased with the final outcome, but will be working to improve our strike rate in the coming month to reduce reliance on big-priced winners (after the Grand National of course).
