And they’re off … the jumps season gathers pace.

The first Saturday in October traditionally marks the start of the jump season proper. I recall back in the 80s buying the Haig Annual from WH Smiths and using their ratings to back Dawn Breaker and Romping To Work in a double. The rest as they say is history … I was hooked.

There is plenty to wet the appetite at Chepstow supported by a decent card at Hexham.

Today’s picks :


3.20 As De Mee NAP

3.55 Monsieur Gibraltar 

4.30 The Liquidator

          Hurricane Hollow e/w

5.05 Drop Out Joe e/w


1.50 Far From Defeat

2.25 Scorpions Sting NB

3.35 Present Lodger

4.10 Miss McNamara

4.45 Reverse The Charge
