A fine autumn day – cool, bright and sunny. A wonderful 8th career win for Jet Master at Newcastle on Friday, 12yo and probably his best round of jumping and certainly his easiest win, he’s been a fantastic horse to train and I’m delighted for his loyal and patient owners Harry Turcan and Simon Dunning.
Not sure where we go from here, just hope the handicapper appreciates that despite his facile 12 length win he is unlikely to be improving at his age! Tremendous racing at Cheltenham this weekend, so many wonderful stories, just what this sport is about. This week we will hopefully have some runners at Hexham on Wednesday then entries at Haydock on Saturday, will need some rain to turn up at the latter.
