    Good ground, prominent style of racing, little got into the race over course and distance that was held up yesterday.

    Surely the day has come to pray that the Lord (of Illusion) finally delivers.:biggrin:

    The Lord only rose from the dead last weekend so I don’t know if he’ll be up for 2½ miles around the National Fences!:biggrin:

    Hello DJ,

    The Lord races so infrequently you would certainly need a leap of faith to back him with confidence, or with a significant bunce.<br>However, as I was looking at the card last night,  the Chosen One did bounce out at me and I told myself I won’t back it unless DJ posts it tomorrow:)

    Now you have, :(  Now I have to back it….;)

    Meanwhile back at the Easter Eggs….:(

    regards,

    doyley

    I was watching RUK this afternoon and may have mis-heard, but can anyone confirm that the commentator at Ludlow (Ian MacKenzie?) suggested Lord Of Illusion was going hunter chasing this year. If that’s the case, are we all on board for the Foxhunter? <!– s:roll: –>:roll:<!– s:roll: –> <!– s:lol: –>:lol:<!– s:lol: –>

    He won a point yesterday, so it sounds about right.

    Not that I’ve seen, although I’m sure I’d prefer to take a price about Bon Accord ahead of this year’s combined Irish / Nicholls / O’Neill / Daly / whosoever else challenge.

    Yep, DJ, it was definitely Iain at Ludlow today.

    Speaking of hunters’ chases, is anyone able to point me in the direction of a list of those that are scheduled for this season, or failing that just give me the total number of such races, please?

    I had a feeling the total would be down thanks to the small field sizes in many instances last year (some of it the upshot of the BHA’s meddling), and I notice that what’s usually Wincanton’s (and Britain’s) first hunter of the season this Thursday has been replaced by a 0-145 veterans’ chase. Me being me, I’d have loved to have seen BOTH races on the card, not one or the other!

    Thanks in advance,
