    As a bookmaker standing at the Open meeting I’m looking foward to paying out on Pipe-trained 15-8 favourites, forecast at 8-1, with form figures of: PPP who win by half the track, just like last year.

    I think you summed it up perfectly Dave, 6 months of boring flat racing and now it’s time for a proper meeting.

    I’m hoping Mephisto turns up and back to his best. Not looking foward to the cross-country, have to say I find those races a bit circus like.

    It looks like the jumpheads are out in force as usual having a go at the flat.

    Best bit about the jumps season is the end of it.

    I’m going to be naughty and bring up a race in this section though just to prove I do like (too strong a word but anyway) the jumps season. In the 3:05 at Cheltenham I see there is some early money on Betfair for Plum’Tee. As a sneaky e/w punter I was wondering if someone could tell me more about the horse? Will it be out the back or does it have a legitimate chance on its form, as its official rating certainly doesn’t look flattering?

    Boring flat my arse. Flat in the summer, jumps in the winter that’s me but give me choice and I’d pick the flat any day.

    Anyhow back on topic, it will be interesting to see if David Pipe can monopolise this meeting like his dad used to. I was always scared to back anything at this meeting because in the back of my mind no matter what the price or the form figures one of Pipe’s was always likely to spoil the party. Why not back Pipe’s? The one of Pipe’s you back usually ends up being the only one that loses. :angry:

    The best thing about the jumps season is NH Flat and Banded Handicap Camel Races.<br>

    Bloody hard to weigh up to Trackside

    The novice hurdle is a fascinating race. Wonder if the fav is worth taking on. Front running at cheltenham is never easy..

    Standin’ Obligation 4/6?  That’s a lay IMO.<br>I’d take it on everytime at those odds, in that race.

    Yeah, what a sickener :(<br>Absolutely tragic when they run their heart out like that.

    Buailtes and Fadas dead as well – not a good day for Cheltenham.

    I’m not one to get too emotional about horse deaths but War General saddens me a lot – he is a son of one of my favourite ever race-mares Absalom’s Lady making him a half-brother to another current racing favourite, Bob Bob Bobbin. He carried my money today and I though he ran an exceptionally promising race for the future, but sadly we will never find out how good he would have been.

    Buailtes and Fadas ran a very game race too.  Not a happy day at Chelters.  Kind of overshadows the day for me.<br>No doubt another welfare debate will ensue.
