Captain's Blog - 2nd March 2011

Ruby Walsh returns at Newbury on Friday and I for one am delighted that the best National Hunt Jockey in the land is back. Some of you out there may dispute my belief that Walsh is the best, well you are entitled to your opinion just as I am. The reason Walsh is the best is rooted in his judgement of pace and the ability to get horses jumping well without pestering them. In short he is a horseman of the highest order whose understanding of the racehorse is as acute as his race riding ability. Incidentally if you want to keep up with how Ruby's return to action goes please do have a look at his diary on the website which will be updated every couple of days.

I am back in action today presenting all the coverage from Kempton Park this evening. Dave Nevison will be my guest and we welcome all your e-mails which no doubt will be mostly about the forthcoming Cheltenham Festival. If you have any selections for the meeting please do let us know and as ever show your working. Even if you get the answer wrong marks will be awarded for sound reasoning!

Above all we would like some help with the meeting at Kempton which is a reasonably good one. I for one could do with some help with finding a few winners. I have been going through a dreadful trot and am working hard to turn the whole thing around. It would be great if that change of fortune came at Cheltenham as it did last year, we will see!

Yesterday I promised a look at the major Cheltenham races here on the blog and I will start on Monday with a look at the Champion Hurdle.

I am off to crunch some numbers for the show tonight. All the best.


Today’s Selection

6:40 Kempton - Pelmanism (each way 5/1 Sky Bet )
