DRY CONDITIONS BUT WINNERS FROM BOOK ARE FLOWING
The recent dry spell played havoc with the ground condition on many jumps racecourses. They had the word ‘firm’ in the going descriptions, hence the small fields on view.
Thankfully runners from the Jumping Prospects 2016 Trainer Interview book have already contributed to produce 20 winners since the end of September.
Last week I spent Wednesday promoting the book at Wetherby racecourse.
One person who approached my stall when a small crowd were buying their copies, gruffly moaned that since purchasing the book at Bangor on the 28th of September, over the next two days it had given him a few losers and he had not opened it since.
My response was to tell him he had missed 10 winners last week, much to the amusement of the lads buying the book while he was having his rant. Quality.
Although runners from the book have been thin on the ground this week, at least one I had waited for duly obliged at Fakenham yesterday. Al Reesha was described as ‘an exciting mare who will be much more suited to a hurdling campaign.’ She was backed in from 3/1 to 15/8, jumped like a bunny on her hurdling debut and won easily for the Skelton team.
This week the core jumping season has some good meetings including a return to Cheltenham next weekend. Oddschecker often have some well thought-out tips in the jump season from likes of Andy Holding and Nick Luck and they generally provide tips for meetings on a daily basis. I always use Oddschecker as my first port of call for daily prices and all the latest market moves.
There remain some very promising individuals from the 20 featured Trainer Interviews to make their seasonal debuts over the coming weeks.
With the rains starting to arrive, can you afford to miss out on further winners?
