Early days

The jumps campaign is still in its early stages with a mixture of debutants and summer horses still on the go. Quick look at two races this afternoon:

2.05 Fakenham

Throthehatch has first start for the Skelton stable. Comes here on a potentially lenient handicap mark. 6/4 my provisional tissue and 11/10 generally with the books.

Hint Of Mint at Sandown last year

2.25 Wincanton

Moonday Sun improved on latest start. Hint Of Mint respected returning from an absence. Moonday Sun 2/1 ,Hint of Mint 9/4 on my provisional tissue

This is a time of year when discipline and the professional long term approach are pronounced. The main jumps season runs for seven months – a marathon not a sprint.

Just the one bet for us this week which rewarded us with a smart 8/1 winner.

Back tomorrow for Champions Day at Ascot.
