A tough month of punting comes to a close on Tuesday when the quality of racing is poor.
As were the results on Monday. Seconditus returned to haunt us, with three runners up. One beaten by a mere neck. Both annoying and, frankly, surprising. While Monday was not a day for big betting, I was surprised at some of the results.
The flat season needs to get into a consistent run of good racing. It is all a bit stop-start right now. You get a good day or two of racing that looks ripe for punting. Then we get three days of rubbish.
But May is around the corner. If you asked me to choose my favourite month of racing, it would be hard to call between May and June. But I am eager to get some good quality flat racing and May will bring us a top quality meeting at Newmarket, among others.
But, before that, comes Tuesday
