    Trainers who have been consistently good this year, trainers who dont always win the higher profile races but whose horses usually give their best especially when fancied (< 10/1)

    For me 2006 so far both these have been superb at their profession

    Flat – Alan Swinbank<br>NH – Sue Smith

    Surely all horses give their best all the time, not just when fancied? ;)

    <br>Beat me to it!

    For the kinds of animals they have at their disposal, I’d have to list Charlie and Adam Pogson as well.

    The patron saint of lower-grade fare. A gently critical friend of point-to-pointing. Kindness is a political act.

    Richard Fahey and Kevin Ryan stand out for me. Both again have had excellent seasons. Would be fascinating to see what they could do with the horses that Channon, Ed Dunlop and Amanda Perratt are given.

    John Spearing always knows how good his horses are and places them accordingly.

    The Welsh Wizards that are Peter Bowen and Evan Williams are well and truly established these days as knowing their onions, just wish that Evan’s runners were more consistent.

    Kevin Ryan seems to be a wizard.

    Donald McCain jnr, another winner at Bangor today for Trevor Hemmings. If he’s sending horses to him he must be doing something right.

    Were you there today, Ruth? Looked a bit of a clean-up job for NTD and young Mr Evans again.

    Yes Jeremy, I was there, another 3 can do no wrong at the moment. Knowhere was very impressive, jumped superbly, Greenlough won the Mares Bumper by a very wide margin. Big talking point was Jonjo’s horses, with one exception (Carnival Town) they ran atrociously, dark mutterings round the course that there’s something not right at Jackdaws.<br>What about poor old Quixy, such a a shame, comparatively young at 21, have you told Geoff S?

    <br>Knowhere was on my Ten To Follow list which appeared in a certain ill-starred newspaper earlier in the week, along with Grecian Groom – so far so good.

    Absolute waste of time giving him such a similar task to his Perth race today, though. We knew beforehand that he had the speed to win a 2m4f chase, and it would have made more sense to find him another small race over 3m+ to see whether he could be counted a Royal & SunAlliance Chase aspirant of any merit. As it is, he is compelled to have to find that out in better company having won two novices’ chases now.

    Have been trying Geoff’s phone intermittently today without any luck – chances are he may have seen Andrew Scutts’ short interview with Ted in today’s RP by now. Either way, he’ll be mightily upset.
