The end of another profitable jumps season for the blog
If all goes to plan, I will spend July and August updating and pruning the alert list - an exercise which proved excellent practise last autumn - and then begin writing blogs on the jumps scene in late September with the aim of posting my first selection of the 2016-17 jumps season around the 1st October.
So, to my loyal supporters and donators, there is no need to make any more donations until the autumn. I will be contacting all those on the email list in September with an invitation to rejoin the list for the 2016-17 jumps season.
The Grand National run last Saturday was a very exciting affair, and very open too as there were about half a dozen horses in with a chance of winning the race with 2 jumps to go. Unfortunately, there were none of my selections involved in the finish, as Holywell had fallen at the 2nd fence; Boston Bob was going well until he had to pull-up before Bechers on the 2nd-circuit after goung lame. While Silviniaco Conti pulled-up before completing the first circuit after running like he was hating the experience (he has never won a race with more than 10-runners, and it showed). And my "2nd-team" of outsiders fared no better as Hadrian's Approach fell at the 1st fence; Saint Are was with the leaders till heading-off on the 2nd circuit whereupon he faded and pulled-up late on in the race. My only "finisher" was Just A Par who trailed the field for the entire race and came home a distant 15th in his own time.
Horseracing moves on and, today, we have the opening day of the "Craven" meeting at Newmarket which announces the flat season is not in full swing. The next 8-weeks between now and Derby Day on Saturday 5th June will pass quickly in the excitement of meetings at Newmarket, York and Chester.
Keep a lookout for any recent blog selections running again in the next few weeks, especially if they are running in conditions that are considered favourable. All the best from Wayward Lad.
