    <br>Never hibernated, and have had a most enjoyable summer jumping campaign, as always! What would you like to talk about? I’m all ears. And typing fingers as well, natch.

    I,ve never been away either, I just love NH racing. With very few exceptions there aren’t any characters you can latch onto on the flat, and when I go to Flat meetings (shock, horror ) they’re recriprocal, & we usually only go to Thirsk & enjoy North Yorkshire for a few days. The atmosphere is totally diferent, the clapping round the winners enclosure is for the most part polite & sporadic, no enthusiasm. <br>Whereas NH racing, appreciation of even the most humble of winners is great, and concern for fallen horses genuine, many many times have I seen people waiting to clap in a warrior who has been winded & lives to fight another day.<br>The hurdle scene looks really exciting, mainly Irish hopes but we have Detroit City & Black Jack Ketchum to fly the flag.<br>The chase scene I think is a case of wait & see, if Kicking King is as good as ever on his return, should make it really competitive.<br>Can’t wait.

    Agree to a certain extent, QC, but in the interests of parity I’m obliged to mention I witnessed some disgusting episodes of cheering fallers when they hit the ground at Worcester a couple of times during the summer. As I recall, I gave "idiot faction in crowd" (or words to that effect) as a Negative in one of my post-race analyses, in addition to a couple of horses.

    NH git I may be, but I’ve found the Flat exploits of the likes of Aahgowangowan very hard NOT to warm to this summer, I have to admit. Must be going soft in my middle age.

    I must admit Jeremy, the last time I was at Worcester as we walked out we had to pass a whole load of people who’d had one too many, cans strewn on the floor etc, not nice.<br>As for Aahgowangowan must agree from very humble beginings she became a little heroine & it’s obvious shedidshedidshedid, cos now sh’e got a bun in the oven!!

    The flat season has had its moments, like with Aahgowangowan, Young Mick and Red Evie, all horses you can cheer on from race to race, but it’s the jump season that brings on the real cheers, and the tears, and the glory! Bring it ON!!
