    Unlike some I was impressed with his performance today.
    However I found the comment from Jack Quinlan strange however others on here may be able to shed more light on it.
    He was asked about the jumping to which he said he had never jumped anything as big at home. I would have thought surely when you are schooling you school them over the right size jumps so it does not scare the horse when they get to the racecourse for the first time.
    Thoughts please.

    In much the same way as they build horses up to jumping hurdles by having them go over poles on the ground which are gradually raised, I believe for novice chasers they would start them off by schooling them over baby fences rather than the full sized versions.

    If you go to around the 2m27sec on the following video of Paul Nicholls you will see his set up
